Seven Classic Space Mini Vehicles
Count them, 7 little pocket money size classic space mini vehicles. I'm thinking of setting up the pocket money pack classic space competition, and built these as a test run for myself to see if there was milage in the form of 50-150 brick classic space inspired builds (without canopies). I'll leave you to answer that.

Quoting Stephan N Please do not misunderstand, your vehicles here are great. But the first of the above reminds me of a caterpillar to draw from my little daughter.
I take that as a high compliment :)

Cooool! I like the small space craft with the grey SNOT-wings. It has a strange mixture from Classic Space and Neo CS. Great!

great idea!! I love the rocket launcher and the last blue one, it looks like a flower (no kidding!). You're the master of the classic space spirit!

Ah, fantastic group. My favorite has to be the yellow one. Has such a utility feel to it.

Quoting Tim C Good stuff, David. First off, the orange one with the NPU wheels. Love the style. Obviously the wheels are what really set this one off. I'm also really digging the caterpillar-style vehicle. I also love the dual spaceship. All seven are very well built and belong on the toy store shelves in the 80's, but the ones I mentioned are my favorites. It's always fun to see you take the industrial route with your builds. They all look so functional and that they all have a specific task to help drive society on some previously uninhabited moon. More great work David.
There is something really special about CS utility.

Great ideas, all of them; just like the original 'pocket money' sets. A competition for this sort of thing would be ace.

Quoting Gale Winthrope Interesting little things aren't they? They are all very well done. The all remind me of small vehicles I used to make when I was young. It seems there is nostalgia for even a collector such as I. :) great work David. :)
Thanks Gale. If I inspired nostalgia then I've done my job.

Quoting Jon B Great idea, and a lovely collection of builds. The caterpillar one is outstanding, but they all look good. The pocketmoney sets were great, I bet I'm not the only one who'd find at least one in his Christmas stocking every year :)
My brother and I used to get enough money to buy a Lego set every month, either that or a Star Wars figure. I think I ended up with Lego a good 70% of the time. I'm putting pocket money sets in my own children's Christmas stockings now.

These all look very playable, like they would stand up to being pushed around and dropped on the floor from a reasonable height.

Quoting David Roberts A super collection, rather like being presented with a box of nice sweets. My two favorites are the snakey, caterpillar type fuel truck and the rocket launcher. The rocket launcher really is classic Classic Space, with lots of grey but the two missiles add a nice splash of colour. I like how you've broken up the cylindrical shape of the missiles too. I like the fuel truck basically because it looks fun! I haven't commented on your MOC with the sinister shadow yet because I want to look at it and think a bit first. It's a great that you're able to publish these two, contrasting MOCs one after the other.
Thanks David, these were great to make. Spent a couple of hours with my little boy just thinking up cool new vehicles to play with. The challenge was to make robust bright toys here - nostalgia for me and great fun for him. He liked the rocket launcher most. I'll look forward to seeing what you make of the magic cat.

Quoting Senator Chinchilla . Snazzy stuff! I like the centipede-y looking one best. Or would it be a milli-rover?
I like it, milli-rover is a fab name.

Quoting Chris Roach capturig the spirit and playability of CS!
Playability was key here. I made all seven with my little boy who loved playing with them when finished.

Quoting claw paradox try using wheel pieces on the 5th vehicle!
It's interesting you say that, as it was a really conscious design decision to use the radar dishes as ultra-thin wheels, with the whole build being based around it. I wanted little less than two studs wide across the whole thing.

Quoting Topsy Creatori(StoveTop nomore!) Seven is the magic number! I like your use of those juvenelle tri-curved pieces for the nosecones of the last flyer. :)
I made a little brick link order and wanted to try out some of the pieces. I also wanted to do something completely different to yesterday's magic cat build. Lego has two polar attractions for me, as extended medium for my art and as a joyful nostalgic trip into childhood. My love of sci-fi sits somewhere between the two.
