SC-920 Alpha 2 Rocket Base (2SCU)
920/483 Reloaded. A new version of the Alpha 1 Rocket Base from 1978/79 packed into two 16x8x8 Space Cargo Units (SCU).
About this creation
I didn’t have the 920 Alpha-1 Rocket Base as a child, but always wanted to have one. Now, as an AFOL, instead of buying one or building one with single bricks I wanted to build my own version of it.

On my moon base almost everything should be delivered in SCU containers, even the parts of the base themselves. So my Alpha-2 Rocket base had to fit into a pair of containers, too.

It took a while to find a mechanism for the whole launch pad assembly and the rocket to fit into a 16L SCU, but it finally worked well. The second SCU module is a combination of control unit and garage for the fuel truck.


A look into the control unit.


Like Alpha-1 the whole rocket base can be mounted on a single crater plate.


Special delivery: 2 SCUs for Alpha 2


SCU #1: The launch pad assembly including the rocket


Step 1: Fold out the side panels with the two sections of the rocket


Step 2: Fold out the launch tower


Step 3: Assemble the rocket.


Step 4: Add some fuel and it’s ready for launch.


3, … 2, … 1, … ignition … and lift-off.
The tower folds down for the start. (Sorry for the blurry picture, the AF of my cam isn’t the best – Must have been the vibrations from the starting rocket…) ;-))


SCU #2: Control unit and truck garage


Fold down the ramp and the truck is ready for work.


This is my SCU (Space Container Unit) based Lego Classic Space SC-920 Alpha 2 Rocket Base.
I hope you like it :-))

mmm ... are you sure? an unexpected meteor shower or a solar flare can cause serious damage where there is no atmosphere;)

Quoting BATOH rossi the ability to occupy or clear a launch site is noteworthy and very useful. really well designed!
Thanks! For me the priority was the ability to be transported in a very easy way. This is Classic Space with peaceful explorers. So it’s not very important to disappear quickly after the launch ;-))

Quoting Jeremy McCreary Another CS creation loaded with play value! Curious, are cargos packed in SCUs still eligible for free shipping?
Thanks, Jeremy. And no, I don‘t think that free shipping is an option for SCUs, maybe a special price for each unit ;-))
