926/493 Reloaded: A new version of the Space Command Centre from 1978/79 packed into two of my Space Cargo Units (SCU).
About this creation
My story with set 926 was more or less the same as with set 920: I always wanted one, but never had one. So after building a "new" version of set 920 with a pair of SCU containers , 926 was the logical choice for my next SCU project.
It was much easier to pack it into two SCU containers. The Command Centre itself is already built like a container with enough room inside for the external stair during transport. And there is enough room in a second SCU to pack all the dishes, lights and antennas into it and build the roof section with it.
These are the two SCU containers.
SCU #1: Command Centre. The interior is very similar to 926/493.
SCU #2: All the antennas, dishes and lights packed into a transport container.
The floor plates from the container (2 4x8 and 2 1x8 plates) are used for the roof of the "garage". I only have one intact classic TV antenna left and I'm not willing to pay a fortune for a second one. So I added a second "brick built" one instead.
Everything built on a baseplate. It looks pretty much like the original model. That's it: My Lego Classic Space SC926 Space Command Centre based on the set 926/493 and built with two Space Cargo Units (SCUs).
I hope you like it! :-))
