It is the summer of 1952. In a heavily-guarded facility deep in the mountains of the small European country of Syldavia, an incredible project takes shape.
About this creation


The unmanned X-FLR6 reconnaisance rocket, designed to test a new form of nuclear propulsion, is intended to provide valuable photographs of the far side of the moon.



Workmen prepare the rocket for launch.





"Don't worry about the gaps Sport, in Legoland™ there's no such thing as airtight."



A peek inside at the internal frame.



Success!



After orbiting the moon, enemy forces commandeered the craft with their own radio signal, and the rocket had to be aborted. Nevertheless it proved the technology and paved the way for something even greater…



It just goes to show what even a small country is capable of with a concerted effort (and strong, centralized leadership!)

Quoting Kurt's MOCs Very cool! Great design and diorama. Looks fun and I hope there's more to come.
Syldavia has many enemies but remains committed to sending a team to the moon!

Quoting Clayton Marchetti Destination Moon! This is really fantastic! I love the launch pad! Excellent shaping of the rocket too. This makes me want to break out my classic Sci-fi movies and have a movie night! Really brilliant work!
I knew either you or Kurt would be the first to catch the reference!

Quoting Gabor Pauler Nice ogival hull form solution! If I were you I would build a historically exact German V-2 rocket scene.
There's already a really good one on Flickr, though I dare say it's much easier to design a 4-sided rocket in Lego than a 3-sided one!

Quoting Henrik Jensen Lovely Tintin inspired scene! Nice shape of the rocket, but will it be able to keep its shape in real bricks? :-)
I think it would, there's an internal structure and it's light enough not to crumble under its own weight. The fins are also directly connected to the armature.

I like the fact that you used LDD to your advantage (that paper made out of 1x1 tiles, even though for the photos' sake you could have turned them right around).

Please note that my truck and jeep designs are not original, but are cobbled together from various sources.
