Blanchfield Space Agency – Shuttle v2.0
An associate send me an email with a link to a February 2015 LEGO “mini-builder” project as she knew our house was literally a LEGO design plant for such things, so sending me a link to a new design we could attack was like catnip to a tiger ;-)
Here’s a screenshot of the original product from the Collect Space website ( click on the link for the original page ):
Here’s the original design instructions – we love the simplicity of LEGO plans.
Here’s what the original from the mini-builder package looks like:
With a bit of shaking and rattling and digging deep into our huge trove of LEGO parts, we ( all of us, Jake, Georiga, and Fiona – yep, mum helped as well ), we came up with this ( note: we used our own colours to be a tad original, and we used a modified Blanchfield “patent pending” dual tail plane design – one we came up with some time ago, better suited to low density atmospheres such as planets like Mars and Venus ).
Here is our version ( low res, old camera ):
Here it is in all it’s glory from left, right and top views. This time from an iPhone in full high resolution ).
Left & Right view:
Top view ( yep, it’s a beautiful thing ):
Yea ok I know, a bit OTT but we might as well have a little video of it if we’ve come this far.
Can’t wait for the next fun project.
