I am happy to present the Lego Ideas community with the
Space X Falcon 9 and Launch Complex 39A. Please take a moment to read about the
set below! Enjoy.
Space X Falcon 9 is the workhorse of Space X with almost 85
launches under its belt. From classified Air Force satellites to mini cube
sats, Falcon 9 is one of the best rockets ever made. It is 90% reusable with the first stage being able to land back on Earth and the fairings being recovered,
everything apart from the second stage is reused. Included in this set is:
Falcon 9 First stage
and second stage
Crew Dragon (Dragon
Crew access arm
Falcon 9 First and
Second Stage included in the set are highly detailed and functioning. With
the first stage having moving grid finds, folding landing legs and landing leg
struts to add on. The second stage contains a very detailed Merlin upper stage
engine and either the fairings or Crew Dragon (your choice!)
been included so you can use the rocket as a Falcon 9 satellite launch or a
crew resupply to the ISS with the Crew Dragon. *No satellite is included but I may
add one in an update*
Crew Dragon is included
meaning you can display the rocket with the state of the art space systems and
transport, Crew Dragon! Take crew to the ISS or simulate a launch to the Lunar
Gateway or beyond.
Launch Tower is
included to complete the Pad 39A look! The original colours have been used to portray
the brand new Space X launch tower, that will be used for Crew Dragon missions.
It stands the height of a Falcon 9 and has a large antenna on top.
Crew Access Arm is added onto the launch tower just like in real life. It has been built to
perfectly fit the custom Crew Dragon spacecraft and can be swung back out of
the way like the real thing when not in use. This took a while to find the
perfect design and I have gone with the real and original colour scheme.
Strong Back Launch
Tower is also included! It can be swung back when you launch the falcon 9
and the upper stage clamps close or open just like the real thing. At the
bottom, there are what resembles the hold-down clamps and the overall look of
the launch pad has been achieved in my opinion, let me know what you think in
I hope you like the set, it took quite some time to make and
I am rather proud of it!
T-15 seconds, 10, 9, 8…
Brick it on!
