LL929 Starfleet Voyager (6929 Mod)
My 1979 version of the iconic Starfleet Voyager.
About this creation
The Starfleet Voyager was one of the Lego model I always wanted to have. My cousin had one, one of my friends, too, but I didn’t.

A few years ago I found out that my brother did also “have” one, in a weird kind of way: He had the infamous 1593 “Super Model”, a quite ugly spaceship made with the parts from the Starfleet Voyager and the 6880 Surface Explorer. I didn’t know that before, but back in the early 80s it wasn’t easy to get the building instructions, either.

Now I had three ideas: I could search in my CS boxes for the parts (I’ve traded my Playmobil with my brother’s Lego a few years ago, so his parts are now mine). I could also buy a set on Bricklink. And last, but not least, I could build a modified version of the model using the iconic grey/blue/trans-yellow colour scheme from 1979/1980. As you can see, I chose the third idea.

But I didn’t just want to replace the trans-blue parts with trans-yellow ones and the white parts with blue ones. I tried to modify the design in a way that the Starfleet Voyager looked like a member of the original 1979 space fleet. For that I also eliminated all the parts that were new in 1981 and replaced them with parts available in 1979.

Finally I bought a set of custom printed bricks with “LL 929” Lettering. In fact, the original Starfleet Voyager has the set number 6929. So after the change to 4-digit model numbers and all Space models starting with a six, it is the legitimate “LL 929”.

And now it’s time for some photos:



The cockpit section is new, with one more brick in height above the wings and one less below.



The “backbone” is new, too. I chose to use Technic beams to create a more rigid structure. I also changed the wing shape of the rear part replacing a pair of 4×4 wedge plates with a pair of 4×8 ones.





The cargo area looks quite the same as on the original model. I only changed the inner supports for the cargo box to create room for bigger boxes. Instead of a 4x6x3 box the ship can now carry a 6x6x4 box without changing the exterior shape.







So this is my “LL 929” version of the Lego Classic Space “Starfleet Voyager” in 1979 design. I hope you like it :-)).

Somehow missed the whole Classic Space genre first time around. But now I really enjoy it. Seems like TLG built a =lot= more imagination into those sets than it does now.

Awesome idea! She looks much better in blue and grey. Can’t wait to see the other mods.

Quoting Leximatic LJ2 Q4R Awesome! Perhaps it is possible for you, to convert more sets of the "white era" into the old "blue-grey era" look?
I already have ;-)) Just take a look on my other Space stuff and you'll find a 6890 Cosmic Cruiser, a digital model for a 6980 Galaxy Commander and my blue/yellow version of the grey/green 6952 Solar Power Transporter. :-))
