Not NASA and not an official Lego kit… but still space related.
Cool!! Thanks, great find
It was the big Revell one, I remember the view panel where you could get to the lander and the little gantry for the escape rocket.
I always thought it was pretty meta that a rocket was made of rockets and had a rocket on the top.
Not that I knew the word “meta” in 1979…
+2 Nerd Points for you
That said, I really want a Defiant on the docking ring, and maybe a runabout on upper pylon 3.
As kids, my older brother and I had the 1/144 kit. (A visiting friend accidently destroyed it while playing nearby.) The teeny command module was adorable — no other way to describe it; for what it was worth, there were something like seats inside. I left the escape tower unglued so I could ‘splashdown’ the capsule in our bathtub.
Note that “New Ware” (copy/paste link) makes numerous upgrade parts for the Airfix kit:
I’m used to brute force or teeth.
The future is a wonderful place, see, progress!
I have the London Bus and the Saturn V rocket built and on display.
I thought I had missed out on getting the Lunar Lander but now that it has been reissued, time to find a space for it!
The video is interesting but for me a big part of the pleasure is taking my time in the build and looking at the construction all the way through.
I did a bag per night and spread the build over 12 nights which was maximum enjoyment.
Indeed, getting the thin ones apart could be a real struggle.
The Saturn V is like some wonderful totem to square-jawed, buzz-cut toxic masculinity; a gorgeous encapsulation of the thundering rocket age.
Plus it is also a great track by the Inspiral Carpets.
I have more than a few thin bricks in my collection with tooth marks in them, hehe.
Have you seen For All Mankind?
It’s rockets all the way up!
Nope. Is it worth a watch?
