A view without the cargo ship. A bit more spacious.
These are the biggest mountains I've built out of lego so far

Commentary: It's round 3, and the MOC Olympics haven't gotten any easier. Infact, they've gotten harder. Dylan B. and Professor Eggplant? Was it this hard for anyone else?
This was my first microscale creation. It was interesting to build. Everything was built around the ships that I made. I wish I had enough pieces to make the entire crater. Maybe someday when I have the pieces, I'll make something else like this.
If you liked it, why don't you comment? I'd love to read what you have to say!
Excellent build! If I was a judge you'd definitely have my vote! I can tell you put a LOT of time and effort into this build, and it shows. Be very proud of your entry my friend! Good luck with the final judge!

this MOC is amazing!! I like the way you build the rocks very much. lot's of good details. Good luck in the MOC olympics
Wow! I REALLY like how this turned out. The little mine with the tracks and mining cart, the crane and the conveyor belts...it's all too much to mention. I think you've nailed the classic feel of 80's space here.
Awesome! Every aspect about this is Great-the crater, the spacemen's lodge-type place, the vehicles, the idea, and pretty well everything! Good luck with the other judges. (I'm still pretty ticked Eggy didn't get knocked out in the first round.:D)
Quoting The Dawg
WOW! I saw Eggplants entry and thought "Chas is going to come up with something amazing," and you did. In my opinion you should win this round and you are my pick to win it all. Good luck!
Ok, this was the HARDEST one to judge for me yet! Chas, you’ve got Eggy DEAD TO RIGHTS on size and concept here. All those little details are what really made this moc POP! But he’s got you clean on technique. His engines and the way he copied the overall look of the ship were amazing! That being said, this is THE hardest one for me to judge yet… but my vote goes to Eggy. Perhaps the other judges will see it differently ‘cause like I said… MAN this was close. I’d say it was a 49 to 51% split for me… yeah, that close. Good luck to ya! ~ Chris. EDIT: Also another deciding factor for me was this. There's a few of your builds that use this same basic technique in other areas. One of your castles and the one you call "extraction" are a couple of examples. Now of course, using what brought you this far isn't a factor, but the concept behind the Olympics is to build outside your comfort zone, and let's face it, Spaceships are about as far outside of eggy's comfort zone as you can get. Don't get discouraged though, there's still two other judges to cast their votes. Hold your head up HIGH! It's not over yet! ~ Chris.
Thats a hard match-up man. But look on the bright side, you look me out fair and square and your about to throw the Professor down too. You've been playing great Chas, and I wouldn't be surprised if you actually won! Great work. -Dylan
