    ^nice, looks a little like Classic Space meets Babylon 5 to me.

    Mine has topped out at 323 pieces. No pics of the finished model just yet, as I'm waiting on an order of 2 pieces to finish it off. I probably won't get pics up until Tuesday tbh, as other things are happening from now until then.

    @Shib Thanks.

    Glad to see so many excellent entries already, it is a joy to see so much creativity on this forum. There's still 2 1/2 weeks left to enter if you haven't thought of entering already, the more entries the merrier they say! :-)

    Oh, and for future reference, I'd really appreciate it if you could deeplink pictures into your post rather than link to it if you're uploading your pics to an external host first, as there's a chance I could miss it when compiling my entrant lists if it's just links ;-) Just ask me if you're unsure on how to deeplink.

    How do I get my pics to derplink? I tried the image button and entered the URL but it just came up with a broken image link?
  • Kevin_HyattKevin_Hyatt UKMember Posts: 778
    Think I figured it out, just need to work out how to edit posts now!

    Classic Space. Original Colours (and pieces!). 7 Elements.

    @Kevin_Hyatt, I see an illegal connection. The word LEGO moulded onto the studs of most System elements increases the height of the stud by 0.14mm. This extra height causes the stud on the grey brick above to touch the side of the blue one.

    Hey it's a MOC after all :)

    Love the curvy roof. It has a very 50's/classic sci-fi feel.
  • vitreolumvitreolum RomaniaMember Posts: 1,406
    Thanks, without that it would have been pretty boring. And as a bonus the two wedges helped a lot to keep the parts count low.

    Entry: Space Command Centre

    It features the main command centre, spaceship landing bay and power station. I stayed true to the aesthetics to the Classic Space and Neo Classic Space sets by keeping the MOC Bright Blue, Light Stone Grey, Trans Yellow and Trans Red. It contains Trans Yellow screens, control panels, greebling, tubes, equipment, space gears, grills, lights and antennas. I added the spaceship landing bay because the baseplate was bare, the lights on it will make it easy for the spaceship pilot see where to land in dark areas. The power station powers the whole command centre and it is surrounded by a safety barrier with a large antenna.

    No Lego Classic Spaceman is without his Command Centre.

    Entry 2 is the MX-87 Fighter and Interceptor. These are stand alone micro builds, but can also be joined together to form one ship. The interceptor has the 1x5 dark gray/blue additions to the wing tips. The two ships use the same elements - a total of 20 each - just in slightly different positions!

    As a very recent AFOL so glad I found this. I was a lunatic over Classic Space, but haven't touch it in nearly 30 years. This will be fun!
  • lokailokai Member Posts: 13
    @TheOneVeyronian is there a Flickr group for entries?
  • TheOneVeyronianTheOneVeyronian Help me, I'm inside the M25! (UK)Member Posts: 1,360
    @lokai unfortunately there isn't, but me and the other members that started the Guild are thinking about starting a general Flickr group in the future, but it's just an idea for now. For now, post your entry in this thread by either attaching the pictures to your post or deeplinking them from Flickr using the share feature :-)

    First entry- USS Exploration

    I've always thought of the space theme as pure imagination. With absolutely no plan at all I created this project. Thanks to @rancorbait‌ for rendering it for me (even in competition the guy is top class. :o)

    ^ When this contest was started, I never thought I'd see a mashup of Star Wars and Neo-Classic Space as an entry! I like it very much :-)

    Indeed some fine entries, but I can't help thinking, and I hope you don't mind me asking this: @Huw, weren't you going to do a Brickset frontpage post about this competition?
  • ShibShib UKMember Posts: 5,331
    Been rebuilding and rebuilding this darn little buggy and still not happy with it, but think I'm at the point of submitting it now or never, so here is The Surface Searcher.

    image

    I was going for a small single person vehicle for transportation/exploration that could also be used for salvage etc, so it has a detachable trailer.

    image

    Basically think of this as a small space tractor!

    Like that submarine, novel idea in classic space i think, and not over greebled, just right.

    Its pretty amazing what people are coming up with. So inspiring. I took a crack at an modular X-wing. It has 3 modules right now: Spy Drone, Co-pilot and double cannon. And the wings rotate for landing. You can see the full pics here

    What a great contest! I'm loving the current "classic space" trend (Benny/ exosuit) and happy to get in on the building action.

    My first post: LL-129 'CORVUS' starfighter. I hope you like it!

    @CM4S you've done a good job of capturing the feel of classic space but making it feel new. @Big_Sal, I love the submarine concept!

    I liked the look of the double canopy on my last entry, LL-129, and have been messing around with similar designs in LDD since... here's the result. My second ship for the contest: LL-110 'DORADO'
