This is my model of one of the two Soviet lunar rovers Lunokhod which were from the Luna 17 & 21 missions. It is very hard to find pictures of them, so if you know them really well (very unlikely), don't blame me if they don't look like they should. I will also try to build a model of the lander sometime.
The bathtub-like body was very hard, so I just made it a cylinder. It consists of: 4 4x4 curves, a round 8x8 plate, and one of those large technic motorcycle wheels without the tire.
On the inside of the lid was solar panels, but I couldn't recreate that so I just used the closest thing I had: a bluish-gray 8x8 satellite dish.
For the wheels I wanted those large technic motorcycle wheels without the tires, but knew I couldn't due to size and quantity limitations. So I just doubled up those half-width pulley wheels.

I really like this! Cool idea to make a MOC of a Soviet-era moon probe, and a good rendition of it. I'd give it 4 smileys except for the minor color issues. (which sometimes can't be helped). It was fun to check out your other space related MOC's -- keep it up!
