You may recognise this ship as the MTron Secret Space Voyager (Set Number 6862) Made up of three other MTron sets it was released in 1991 as a Lego “Super Model”. Well this is my version which came about after I'd done a few custom modifications. By the time I'd finished I was so impressed with my own changes that I decided to give it a name of my very own. So was born the new and improved 6862, rebuilt and renamed as the MTron Hammerhead Transport.
New custom features include an elongated sealed cockpit to accommodate the third spaceman, magnetic cargo holders for the MTron crates and a level holding area for the rear space buggy (I think the original design always appeared to hold the buggy at an angle which irritated me a little :@D).
During my modifications I changed many small areas of the model which did not seem quite right in the original. I believe the final result makes this a spaceship which can stand out on its own as an independent model, not one made up of and restricted by the parts of three other sets.

Wow. This really captures the feel of the old space sets... the ones that were b4 my time. I so wish I had those. A very good MOC. The colors are dead on, everythings the color it should be, there's lots of cool attenas and stuff but not to much. 5 smileys!
