In the next
years, the humans race is going back to the Moon thanks to NASA Artemis program.
To explore the Moon, a long range and versatile vehicle is needed.
I know Lego
released two great Mars rovers recently (sets 60225 and 31107). I love these
two rovers but I thought a lunar rover have to be a little different: A
versatile truck to transport many different cargos and also a mobile
laboratory. I decide to made a complete original rover (different from the real
NASA proposals) with several objectives:
- A rover more
“realistic” than sets 60225 and 31107 but that can be playable.
- A reduce
number of pieces. A very complex rover require a lot of pieces and thus an
expensive set. I know there are marvellous Lego ideas sets, but too expensive
to be bought for me. I thought that may be, a “relative cheap” lego ideas set
could be produced.
- The rover
must be built with bricks I have in my own collection (I build with real bricks
first and later I made a digital version). That is the reason this rover is
mainly white (I have the set Lego Architecture 21050 and plenty of whites
with the cockpit, I think is the main part of the rover. I tried several
options but I could ’t find any good and realistic shape. I found in my
collection of bricks the windscreen of the old Darth Vader Tie fighter, and this windscreen made a perfect front for the cockpit! Simple but
I tried to
design a versatile rover, it allow
several cargo option. I shows an option with an energy module and a solar
panel. To change the modules, at the rear of the rover there are a crane. Also
a living module/mobile lab was included. There are the possibility to attach a
small trailer to the rear of the vehicle. There are plenty of possibilities to
be included in the future, as a bigger living module in a big trailer.
cockpit two robotic arm are located to manipulate object from inside the rover.
suggestions to improve the rover are welcome!! Specially with the colour
palette, this digital version is free of the colour limitations of my
collection of bricks!
