Moonbase Chess
A Moonbase with a Chess theme.
About this creation
I have wanted to build a moonbase for quite some time now. I found it hard to come up with a fairly unique design. Having previously built a Classic style chess board (MOC Page to be created), I thought it would be intresting to create a Moonbase Chess set.

Images of the chess peices can be found here.

   I wanted to make an intresting moonbase airlock, It took me a few attempts but I found this a very to be nice design.

   In this moonbase, patrons can remove their Air tanks, sit back and enjoy a drink or even access the Net to get the latest news.

   There is a well stocked bar, catering to the Classic tastes of the regulars.

   The roof of the Moonbase is cunstructed to look like a chess board. The dark squares are actually built of trans Blue brick to allow for additional light.

I know this is a bit late, but if it's still built, maybe you could expand and build a bigger moonbase.

Really good... I don't think it should just be for chess. Maybe a bar/pub/cantina-ish thing? Keep up the good work! ;D
