Moon base Modular Hub and Rover
About this creation
A Moon base modular hub and rover are designed to follow the Lego Moon base Modular (collaborative) standard {1]. This Moon base modular hub can be configured for four three, two one or no standard moon base corridors. When there is no standard moon base corridor then a window plate or an airlock entrance is installed on that side. This set initially has three window plates and one airlock entrance. The airlock entrance comes with a NASA decal. Instead of only two pin to hold the moon base corridor, window plate, or air lock entrance - each moon base corridor, window plate and airlock entrances uses four 2L axles and 2 pins ... when connecting standard moon base modular units the four 2L axles can be left out and two pin can be used. The four 2L axle are used to make a tighter fit.



The rover can be docked or undocked from the stationary moon base modular hub. The navigational radar can rotate. The rover's cargo bay and the pilot's cabin are accessible by removing the top.



This moon base modular MOC was part of a Washington Metro Area Lego User group (WamaLUG) Moon base collaboration display at the National Air and Space Museum Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center (Chantilly, Va) Air n Scare event held on Oct 20 2018.

This moon base modular design uses regular 48x48 base plate and requires risers to raise the moonbase modular corridor/airlock floor from 10 bricks high to 11.3 bricks high to work with the newest (unpublished ) Moon base modular standard that required the 48x48 base plates be built up by with one brick layer and one plate layer.. For the 2019 Virgina Brickfair Moonbase Modular collaborative display - the 48x48 base plates were upgraded to the newer 1.333 brick height standard.

This is my first moon base modular project and it is also a work in progress (WIP) any constructive/Lego suggestion to modifying it is welcomed.

The Moon base modular (collaborative) standard is just one kind of LUG inspired collaborative standard (the other LUG inspired collaborative standards are: Great Ball Contraption (GBC), Castle modular, Micropolis standard, and the Pharoah's/Adventurer's Labyrith modular )
