300 Supports in 2 weeksOn
Cheers all - keep spreading the word and get this project some more views
I've included some classic space LOGOs on the original render, as a few supporters suggested this.

Dark Blue renderOn
Here is a render with the newer dark blue/earth blue colour and trans brown windows. I'm not that happy with it and prefer the bright blue (also, not all parts are available in dark blue), though I thought I'd put it up for people to have a look at what it might be like if the Agents had a Galaxy Explorer :D
250 Support - thankyou!On
Spread the word, let's get this project to 1000 support and beyond - give this classic design a chance at taking off again next year!
red vs blueOn
It was suggested in the Eurobricks thread (http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=98127) that the rover's rims should be red, in line with the original. What's the verdict?
100 in 2 days!On
Thanks to all the supporters.
To share my good will, here are links a couple of projects I think are great builds that you may not of noticed. I have no affiliation with these builders or projects, the builds just stood out to me whilst looking around IDEAS.
Tacking station/base updatedOn
I have taken the suggestions of AndrewClark2 and Lind Whisperer from Eurobricks into account with the tracking station. It has lowered the piece count for the build and, I think, is visual improvement.
These are the kind of modifications I wish to apply in an effort to make this the most visually engaging and economic rebuild of a classic set possible. Please comment on updates like this.
Suggestions and holdOn
If anyone has any suggestions re this build, to try and make the best reboot of the Galaxy Explorer possible with modern parts, I will try and take them into account for updates. I don't want the part count to get too large or the build to get too complicated, so any suggestions that simplify the build whilst keeping the basic aesthetic of the original in tact will be greatly appreciated.
I have added an image showing the rover in and out of the hold. Note the rover fits exactly into the hold and that the hold has some interior detail.
