This project is mostly inspired by the landig of Curiosity on Mars and the resumed exploration. Meanwhile I created a bunch of projects ("sets") and with the help of this main project I would like to present the idea of a complete new theme.

"Back to Mars - a classic space theme"

Summary: Mankind lands on Mars again, defeats the aliens, resumes exploration, starts terra forming, begins to colonize the planet and creates the first city. These steps are done in 3 phases.

Each of the existing sets follows a story line and gives some detailed information not only about a model itself, but also continues the story and takes it further:
- The Missing Link
- Mobile Space Command Base (RC)
- Space Railgun Rover & Dropship
- Battle Ship with Hangar
- Mining Tunnel Driller
- Tracked Vehicles & Service Station
- Outpost (modular extensions)
- Olympus Mons City
- Terra Forming Platform

For more detailed pictures please have a look here.

"No stickers!"
I would prefer not to use any stickers on the models. Small hard printed labels would be great, but please don't apply any stickers.

Phase 1: defeat aliens & take control over Mars - "Humans vs Alien Hive"

Phase 2: resume exploration & start terra forming - "Outpost"

Phase 3: begin colonization process - "Olympus Mons City"

I would like to present the latest addition to the theme: Terra Forming Platform "TFP"

Some more ideas / extensions:
- R&D Center (stand-alone black cubical building for research & development)
- Harvester & Planting Vehicles (e.g. a tripod with drones?), Mining Units
- Orbital Space Habour & Spacecrafts
- Alternative Power Plant (wind or geothermal energy)
- Civil Airport & Future City (incl. vehicles)
- Railway Network & Station (or an alternative transportation network)
- Military Headquater (for our troopers?)
- ...
