- State-of-the-art communication/entertainment/productivity console
- Redundant atmospheric life support systems
- Automated refreshment and instant meal dispenser
- Sleeps 2 comfortably
- 4-wheeled auxiliary vehicle
- Combination airlock/hygiene module with water treatment unit below
The airlock module has a toilet (lower left) as well as misting and drying nozzles (barely visible at shoulder level on the right) for the hygiene needs of the deep space traveler.
Quoting David Calvet
I think there is a small problem with your base: everytime you open the door, all the air will flow outside...
Yes, I know. I was unable to come up with a good playable airlock design with the parts available. So, you just have to make sure your buddies inside have their helmets on when you decide to open the door... but it's still a step up from all the open-vacuum Classic Space designs by TLG, right? At least this base is capable of creating an artificial atmosphere.
Unfortunately not, and no shower either. I was working on a bathroom extension above the external tanks, ultimately decided it was too awkward and clunky. I also justified it by decided that the standard space suit is designed to collect bodily waste for filtration and recycling of water (like the still-suits in Dune) and disposal of solid waste. You don't want to know how that works!
I'm glad to see that you are expanding your builds into bases and not only vehicles (you even created a new folder for these !). I like it very much, in particular the very nice rotating door. But I think there is a small problem with your base: everytime you open the door, all the air will flow outside... Apart from that, it's a very nice little base, very nostalgic, which could have been an offical set 25 years ago ! (OMG, I'm so old !)
Very nice model, could easily be a genuine second generation Classic Space model, the flip roof for access is a thoughtful touch and I'm loving the assymetrical door - entrances on space models are always a challenge. If it were me I'd make the beds and seats a contrasting colour (1st gen CS used yellow, 2nd blue) to stand out but on the whole love it, think I might try to copy it as I have almost all those pieces at home!
