About this creation
---Background---




The Asteroid Prospector is the main workhorse of the Mineral Prospecting Fleet of Earth Colony 26. This spacecraft has been specially designed to operate in the hazardous asteroid field beyond Pluto. Its main objective is to locate deposits of uranium to fuel the Colony's nuclear reactors.
The vessel is equiped with an isolation unit to store samples and a robot to collect them.




Note also that the modular nature of this vessel allows the pilots cockpit to separate if the main body of the craft becomes damaged through asteroid collision.




---Construction---




This MOC is a mixture of two of my favourite Lego models set 6923 the M:Tron Particle Ionizer and set 6887 the Blacktron II Allied Avenger. The MOC splits into two smaller sections.
