CLASSIC SPACE FREIGHTER
Here is my nostalgic attempt at a Classic Space Freighter!
About this creation
I finally took a break from building Lego Transformers (My obsession) and decided to create something based on Classic Space which really got me into Lego when I was a kid in the first place. So here is my first adult attempt: A Lego Classic Space Freighter with seven removable cargo pods. Built with pieces from that era in Lego history and no modern elements. I used a lot of design ideas they used when I was a kid and modernized some a little. I used a lot of antenae and radar pieces and the classic blue with yellow canopies. There is also a tug to remove the cargo pods from the freighter's spine. The shape although much smaller is similar to the Invisible Hand, General Grevious' ship from Episode III. There is an operator pod at the top of the rear of the ship and a crew cabin with dual radar in the mid section of the spine of the ship. The front portion of the ship houses an array of antanea, radars and navigation sensors. Take a look and please feel free to comment.

Cool Freighter. If you ever get bored of building awesome robots again, perhaps you could build an escort for this guy. Lots of pirates in space, you know! Good stuff and pretty authentic to Classic Space.

a very nice CS MOC. I like the shape and of course the colors. The cargo boxes and gines are nice also

yep- they don't make the old one's anymore the new ones look like motorcycle helmets with an extended chin area - the old ones are flat.
Quoting Disco Chicken Are the classic space Hemet's any different then the ones we get today?

Awesome ship! I'm taking a break from my Classic Space and Blacktron I obsessions to try some Transformers in LDD. Your work there inspires and frustrates me, mostly due to LDD's interpretation of physics. Rock on, Lego's forever!

likely more ships in the future .. as for a team build minesota and toronto are not that close to each other, it would be a little difficult. And mostly I work alone, the local Lug has been trying to recruit me for a while. LOL!
Quoting Jesse Long That's a really excellent build, Chris. I'd love to see some more space craft from you, too. By the way, where do you live? Perhaps we could do a build together if you lived close enough to me? Let me know what you think about that, okay? Thank you.

I love freighters (in fact, until now it's the only kind of spaceship I created). This one is very faithful to the classic space spirit: great job and very clever!! You're as good with transformers than classic space...

I think this is really cool. First of all because it's classic space, and second because you only used old style bricks! I really wish Lego would bring back classic space. BTW, the tug reminds me of an old aquazone set I had when I was a kid. Amazing work buddy!

Very nice work man... I like the concept and a realiation. And you could show us some interior, I see you have two cabins there, one in the middle, and one on the end of freighter. Greetings from an almost 30 years old Lego fan from Croatia.

Very nice! Original shape, classic colors and high playability. I love the accessory "tug," and the sensor array at the front is nicely greebled. Well done. Very inspirational.

Classic Space done at its best! This would have been a great set. The spine-look turned out pretty nice!

Wow, this is a Total Win! Amazing design mate, I'm so glad you tried cs, cos thing is real corker. I love the playability also, with the cargo pods and the extractor ship. Awesome...

Wow ! I love it ! The shape is great and the colors too. The removable cargo pods are awesome and the antennae in the front look really great. It would have been nice to have also pictures of the interiors... 5/5

Definately in the style of classic space, and it looks great! I'm working on a space freighter too, but I don't think it'll look NEARLY as good as yours!

Blue and yellow have to be the sexiest color combo I've seen in a while! I love the cargo containers! Awesome work!

Man, I wish I had trans-yellow windscreens! I'll have to edit all my neo classic space MOCs on my computer to turn trans-black to trans-yellow. However, the freighter is great, I really like the idea of having those pods in the front. All in all a pretty cool ship, hopefully you get more time to try out some classic space. (a tip, better don't take your photos with flash)
