Spacecraft
A microscale observation vessel.
About this creation
A spacecraft for surveying orbital construction sites, and offering tours during low-risk construction tasks.

Side view. Notice the four small viewing domes up top for the crew.






Rear view, showing the bulbous, but highly maneuverable engine configuration, positioned around a high-capacity fuel tank. (The engines are minifig airtanks, each hooked around one of the treads of a 1.8 stud radius tire.)




Top view. The two vertical antennas handle orders from construction crews about security clearance and safety, as well as general communications.





The underside, with its two large viewing domes; the lower accessible to guests and the upper reserved for staff. The lower antenna contains the ship's sensitive navigational equipment, and the twin bars on the sides of the lower deck contain the guests' quarters.



The most interesting part of the ship constructionwise is two steering wheels, hooked between the middle fins of a 2x2 engine and held in place by the top of it. These are the rotating crew's quarters, which provide gently artificial gravity.

I doubted your Schlummitude when I saw the steering wheel and how it's supposed to be attached... I tried it out though and it does work! Thanks for the lesson. Nice little spacecraft: a very interesting build. I gotta wonder if we'll ever see some good ol' plastic MOCs from you??? Not complaining, just wondering.
