My entry for The Classic Space Pocket Money Contest
First I'd like to thank you for this great idea of the contest. It was a great cooperation between my 6-yrs-old son and me.
About this creation
Main model is a common lunar rover with armoured chassis and mine-detector. It contains 100 parts (if hinges and wheels are counted separately otherwise only 90) + 1 minifig. Now I know the minifig should be counted as 1 part, but I noticed it after we finished the main and B-models.









How to build --->

First Alternative Build
A lunar transporter with a mobile amplifier/transmitter station for hilly terrains, 100 (or 90 :) ) parts + 1 minifig.









How to build --->

Second Alternative Build
A small ship which can be used as a mobile solar plant for minor constructions, 95 (or who knows) parts + 1 minifig.









We hope you enjoy them as we do, thank you for voting and commenting.

Thank you both, yes, I would bring back those times before the '90s, i really miss my childish illusions. Congrats on a great victory, PL.

What a great entry mate. I see this is your first build and it screams with nostalgia, and ou have some great parts here, parts I don't have. Real cool alternatives to.

whoaa! This text is the deepest I've ever received about a build of mine! That stuff at the front is the manoeuvrable solar panel, and it's not fragile at all. Stability is always a main factor for me. As I mentioned, mine or bomb-detecting is my son's idea, it would've been a rude thing to fake it only for a better result :) Thank you all!
Quoting David Roberts A tough and solid looking off-road vehicle. The high ground clearance and chunky tyres look great for rolling over the rocks and craters on the surface of the moon. The windscreen and windows give the driver good visibility and there is a good selection of headlight to use on the dark side of the moon. The detector is very manoeuvrable and the vehicle has a tow bar to attach other things from other sets too. 9 Two nice alternative builds. The trailer in the first, with its amazing fold-out antenna and clever red wheels is great fun, plus thereís a good looking buggy. The second alternative is a wonderful piece of CS zany construction. The balloon tyres as lift rockets and the great shape to the cockpit. What does all of the stuff at the front do? Is a control surface or a big sensor? This is classically Classic Space to me but maybe a bit fragile when you think about playability. 7 The main part of the vehicle is a very solid build. I like how it totally opens up, with room for the driver and some controls but it is only 4 studs wide. The hand-held detector, clipped onto the side, adds some more play options too. I like how mobile the sensor is. I also like how itís just a few parts, so as not to overload the connections & hinges to which itís attached. It would also be a simple matter to detach the sensor to make the buggy easy to zoom across a floor. 8 The spacemen of Classic Space wouldnít have had much use for a mine detector. The Lego designers of the 70ís went to great lengths to avoid designing war toys: the only green Lego was in trees and baseplates for this reason. However, I do like the way that you managed the colour scheme on this MOC. The big chunks of trans-red donít look out of place and work really well. A nice development of the traditional CS colour scheme. 6 Total score 30.

Thank you for your thorough analysis! Now my son gained great motivation to learn to read to investigate CS-story :) Maybe next time :)
Quoting David Alexander Smith Design: Whilst this looks and feels just like a CS classic, the mine detecting theme doesnít square for me. If only it was a mineral detector. Sorry to have to take points off for this Ė it looks and could even be described as a CS functioning set, but your narrative tells me otherwise. 7 Piece Selection: The two alternatives are true CS builds and work really well. 8.5 Playability: Solid play value, although is mine detecting true CS play? You could pretend otherwise I guess, and for that reason I havenít completely marked the score down. 7 CS Factor: Everything you want from a CS set here except for the mine detecting function. So sorry but a great MOC has to lose some marks because it fails the brief. 6

So nice and incentive comment, thank you
Quoting Tim C Excellent builds! I would like to pick one that I like the best, but I can't. I like them all. I like the shaping on the second one and the playability on all of them. Fantastic work and good luck in the contest.

Photoshop, of course - not a perfect but fast work. Spaceman can be familiar from here: http://www.brickset.com/detail/?Set=894-1

Thank you all. I can not emphasize enough my son's role: http://www.flickr.com/photos/granada_turnier/8345610829
Quoting El Barto ! Nifty build here! Awesome!
Quoting Crimso Giger Obviously I know your great talent from Flickr, but what a way to begin on MOCpages ! The main vehicle is in my top 3 of the entries for the contest, and the alternates are on the same very strong level. Best of luck !!!

Quoting Nils O. Wow, this is really cool stuff, the main model as well as the alternative models! Great job! :-)) P.S.: One suggestion: Classic Space was peaceful - just happy faces and no arms, only exploring. So your "mine detector" would have been a rock analyzer or something like that. And the chassis could be reinforced, not armoured ;-))
Thanks for the first comment here - You are absolutely right, and i know ground vehicles are basically grey (we don't have 4863 plane window in lgrey nor lbley), but my son's thought was a bomb-explorer - and he was born only in ...well, date is hidden in the box art, too :) - so he doesn't know too much about those '70s. And I'm really on the other side, as my avatar shows :)
