A shameless attempt to become a bonus MOC in Neo-Classic Space's month-long celebration of 30 years of CS in March 2009. AND IT WORKED! I was blogged on day 30, and I'm proud to have been part of it.
About this creation
The ion-drive LUV is shown towing a cargo POD for one of the BASA (Brickton Aeronautics and Space Administration) research stations on the moon.
The LUV is a versatile vehicle, capable of towing an 11 lunar ton load up a 28 degree grade without loss of power. When not towing, the LUV can hit a top speed of 85 mph (although the cloud of lunar dust created at top speed creates havoc for anyone following it)
The POD shown is a 5-ton model used for storing perishable food items. It contains a full emergency kit with solar-powered transmitter, oxygen, and the home version of "Wheel of Fortune."
I am pleased to announce that the LUV and its cargo pod were a Day 30 bonus creation on Neo Classic Space! Although the pod itself is no more, I'm now considering making the larger, research station retrofitted version. The LUV is still intact -- until I need some of its parts, anyway. If you haven't checked out Neo Classic Space yet, get yer spacesuit on and check out some incredible MOCs. Sorry Klone Kommander Koolkatz, no Star Wars over there!
