This is a micro-scale of the classic space set 497 (or 928) from 1979, more than 30 years ago.
This micro-scale set attempts to capture the important features that make 497/928 so appealing and fun. The opening cargo bay door to load the rover is included in this design.
Well, it would be a nostalgic little set that finds a place on your working desktop; for you to reminisce about childhood play while taking a break from your focus.
I'll leave the pictures to convince you of your support.
Thank you for reading.
The details. This setup mimics a page from the original 497/928 instruction manual.
Why not make this set a bit more special and memorable? Let's have a special minfig to remember the 70s and 80s! Yes, this is inspired by the statue minifig from the 5974 Galactic Enforcer set.
The complete playset! I am not satisfied with the crater baseplate design, it will get an update as soon as i get the skill to do it.
Note: As requested in the comments, I've put up these two original LEGO artwork for reference.
