LEGO Classic Space Set 918 – Classic Space Transport

It has been a few month since my last efforts on re-building old LEGO Classic Space sets. By now, eBay has done a fantastic job: I have failed to trace down my old collection (still sucks: I borrowed them to someone and cannot remember who it was) but most of the models I was able to re-capture for a reasonable price tag in various online auctions (including some I did not own). One of these is the LEGO Set 918 Space Transport.

The little brother of LEGO 924 & LEGO 928

This set is the smallest of three ships that form a loose series by design and common look & feel: LEGO 918, LEGO 924 and LEGO 928. Instructions – as usual – can be found here.

LEGO 918 Space TransportHaving a “real” LEGO Set in my hands for the first time in I guess more than 25 years, I obviously like to add it to my Luna 13 Compilation of Classic Space Sets.

The Compilation in MLCAD

Like before, I am using MLCAD to construct the model, then POVRay to render the scene. There is nothing really “fancy” in this model so I will not go through details about the construction. Finally, I got my model created and saved in MLCAD.

The Luna-13 Moon Base extends…

Adding this model to the already existing compilation Luna-13 Moon Base brings this one just one more step to completion…

As you can see – the base has come a long way since the earlier posts – and there is still plenty of things to be done… another day.
