A Space Transport/Crane Ship in Generation 1 Classic Space design
About this creation
The design of this model started with a question: “How would something like a Sikorsky Skycrane look in Classic Space design?” The ship should have the same functions as the helicopter: Be able to carry a transport container and lift and carry a big payload with a winch.

The ship is designed around a central frame with a high wing on top. Between the crew cabin and the four legs of the ship there is a big space for the payload. The winch is positioned in the center of the frame, so the thrust of the four landing thrusters is concentrated in the same axis.

And here it is:



Front view: You can see the two main beams of the frame with the two pairs of landing legs positioned below.


Bird’s eye view: The crane cable runs though the opening in the centre of the frame. The winch is positioned behind the opening. The shape of the main wings is based on the LL928 Galaxy Explorer.


The crane at work: LL926 landing with a payload container “at the hook”


And … Touchdown! The “LL 926” bricks are custom printed bricks based on the original design of the 1979 space ships.


Detail: The container can be connected to the cargo frame by pushing 4 axles into the container using the technic bushes on the axles.

So this is my Lego Classic Space LL926 Space Crane.
I hope you like it. – My son does :-))

the Space Crane would have been a useful addition to my Classic Space Fleet when I was a kid. Great idea keeping the theme alive

Very cool, Nils! I can hear you and your son playing with it now. Somehow missed out on CS the first time around, but I'm beginning to understand its on-going popularity.

That's funny I was thinking that you needed a way to transport you command centers and here it is. This is fantastic. It looks like it has always been apart of the classic space family. Outstanding!

Fits perfect to the CS design :) Great work on this space transporter my friend. Btw, I'm on Flickr now (and what I never expected: very successful) ;)
