Asteroid Outpost Alpha
My entry for "Luke's 8x8 'Massive Wangle' Vignette Contest"
About this creation
In the year 2114 a team of U.S. scientists decided to attempt to build an outpost on one of the asteroids orbiting the moon. They would use this outpost as a base from which to study the moon, and also as a communications relay to ships that were farther out in the solar system.




Here is the docking station for their space speeders.



Each of the astronauts has his own utility gun. It contains a blaster setting as well as a grappling device and several tools. This gun is one of the astronauts' most important pieces of equipment.



On this side of the outpost there is a docking platform for the small space cruiser. They use this for trips down to the moon's surface or transportation to other locations relatively near. The buildings on the station are (from left to right) the communications building, the living quarters, and the supply storage building.



On top of the asteroid and beneath the outpost is the power generator for the base.



A small service robot also resides on the outpost to aid the astronauts in mechanic work and carrying supplies.



The space cruiser





The communications building (with its satellite dishes being serviced)...



...and its interior







The first floor of the living quarters



And the second floor



Everything is conveniently located on an 8x8 base!



And here is a final, parting shot for your enjoyment. (If you noticed the small, dark triangle in the corner of many of the pictures, that is from this creation slightly outgrowing my background.)

That's quite a balancing act. I like that service robot.

No need to kick me out, I'm leaving.

Wow! This is absolutely fantastic, Ethan! The fact that it's not falling over on one side, amazes me right there, but the whole rest of thing is sweet as well! Some of my favorite parts are the interior. Keep up the nice building, good luck in the contest!

Quoting Mack Crawford Very nice. However, having it all on 1 asteroid seems a bit unrealistic. It would be a lot cooler if you made like 3 or 4 asteroids and had them connected together with like tube parts or something, with an asteroid in the center of all of them, and then have the base built on ALL of the asteroids with more of those girder parts. Other than that, very cool. I really like that little space bike thingie.
That would, indeed, have been cool! Unfortunately, I only have four girders and I was almost out of the dark bley for the asteroids. Also, this is not supposed to seem incredibly realistic. Thanks for the thoughts!

Quoting W Mark I love the audacious overhang here... the first I've seen in this contest so far. The "space" feel would have been aided a bit if the station didn't have such a strong sense of "up" and "down," I think, but I expect this to do well in the contest with the creative method you chose for the overhang.
I thought about that, too; but I was happy with how it was already looking.

Great idea for the overhang, and a very cool idea overall. I love the space speeders, great use of those silly bike pieces. :)

this is great! especially your use of the girder pieces and the numerous vehicles you've managed to incorporate.

Very nice abuse of the 8x8 rule! Cool asteroid base too!

Nice build, the small structures and the vehicles really captured the classic space feel.
