Star Wars Planet Series 1 Naboo Star Fighter 9674 mounted onto a 4-Planet Orrery
About this creation
Below is a video of the Orrery in action



This Orrey is a modified from a 4 Planet Orrey design by David Koch of the Nasa Ames Center who was working on the Kepler project in 2005. The original design used the first version of the Lego Technic Turntable (studded) which is not only obsolete but uncommon. I modified Koch's design to accept the 2nd version of the Lego Turntable which is more common and is studless. By switching over to a studless design - the turntable mount and main axle had to be redesign to provide enough rigidity-stablity in the frame to handle the vibration of all the gears moving at once. The red axle beam-brace at the bottom of the Orrey to necessary to stablize-steady the main vertical axle so that the horizontal drive shaft could transmit power to it.

This is my first version.
