Research Rover
An (almost) classic space all terrain surface rover. This was built adherening to the constraint of two lines of symmetry. Internally the controls are mirrored. The only differences are the colour of the headlamps and the spacemen drivers.

That's what I call terrain suitable. A truly successful vehicle.

thats a beautiful classsic space-type build, the one improvement it needs to be perfect is give that technic wheel setup some suspension, A+!

This is great! I like the symmetry and the colour scheme. I also like how you've used the Technic beams and wheels. I did think "How does it steer?" but if each wheel had a hydraulic motor in the hub, it would steer like a Bobcat digger. Great fun.

Interesting MOC. It definitely looks like the classic space series. Overall this is a great MOC!!! Oh, and does it have suspension?

Oh no, Mr. Yellow broke his helmet and now the chin section is all crooked! Nice build though for a classic styled vehicle.

Very cool shape a design! Though I feel that the wheels should just be a tad closer to the body.

Thanks everyone. I'm really surprised so many of you liked this. I made it quickly as a constrained building exercise (2 lines of symmetry), and put it up on a whim today. I'm afraid it doesn't have real suspension - it was built on aesthetic grounds rather than practical ones. In answer to Brody, they get in and out by using the research rover boarding pad (just got to build it now) :). I'm away for a few days, but will be back and building next week.

Nice. It must be a great. View from the cockpit. How do they get in and out?

Now those are some all terrain tires! There's a guy out my way who flys his own recreational plane and lands it on his cow field. It has big balloon tires too! :)

Wow. I don't know how you keep these things coming. It would be one thing if these were low quality builds, but this is another nice MOC that has that classic space look. I like that it can go both backward or forward and has a driver for each direction. The pod shape is also an appealing feature. Although it probably needs to be a bit higher off of the ground to avoid the giant creatures;)

That'll teach those pesky ginormous animals a thing or two, Or so I thought at first glance, at second look thin again doesn't have any weapons! However I think that is why I love the OSRT (Outer Space Reasearch Team) its their stupidity and all around peaceful uncleverness that makes them such vulnerable and funny targets. This is wonderful :)
