That shuttle mini build is fantastic in itself!

ID: gq4esxv

Thanks! I wanted it to look like the shuttle from the Lego Mars Research Shuttle 60226, hence the orange bits.

Those astronauts must be pulling some crazy laterals, they may want to adjust their roll towards the center of the orbit.

Great build!

Dammit Jim, I'm a doctor, not a rocket scientist! 🙂

Thanks, appreciate it!

Put this on lego ideas for girls in stem. They would love it.

ID: gq4ng32

STEM themed Legos are always great! I have a six year old daughter who switches between wanting to be an astronaut or a wildlife biologist (my profession), so we try to buy her any STEM Legos we can. They've been doing a great job making female STEM minifigures recently!

Have you submitted this to Ideas? It'll get a ton of support!

ID: gq4n3i8

I have not - I just finished it for our monthly meeting yesterday (like I was literally scrambling to finish it 15 minutes before the Zoom call), and I also am not happy with how the cloud looks/how fragile it is. So some reworking would be required before I'd even consider it! And honestly, I just like sharing and interacting with the community.

Glad that you liked it!

So many small details, the open dresser drawer, the unique kids bed with floor rug. Karaoke machine, BB-8 lamp...what did I miss? 🙂

ID: gq4gp5r

Is it the D-O droid that looks like a karaoke machine? If so, you give me too much credit for being that creative! I'd say you found most of the details. I was also going for a slighty turned-down blanket effect with the raised tiles towards the top of the bed (below the pillow).

I love making slightly raised rugs using this technique, which I first learned from building the Central Perk set.

Why is this not a set yet? It has been an hour!! Mindblowingly clever.

ID: gq4mogj

Yeah Lego, how come you're not sliding into my DMs? 😀

Appreciate the support!

My future-astronaut daughter approves.

Yay, this makes me so happy! Maybe her and my daughter can go to Mars together! 🙂

Man I miss the space shuttle. That thing was the symbol of space travel for me, as a kid growing up.

Now this should be what wins Lego Idea’s. Something that represents inspiration and possibilities!

ID: gq5c9p8

I agree those are great themes to represent! I bet there are some great ones on there right now that are maybe getting less love than they should.

This is awesome!! I'm a 27-year-old girl dreaming of being an astronaut, and I'd love to have this!!

Cool, reminds me of the animated short film "One Small Step"!

I hadn't heard of it, I'll have to take a look!

Love this, all the little space touches round the room really make it, like the print on the wall and the rocket on the shelves. Always amazed by how inventive the posts on this sub are

ID: gq5di5x

Me too, I get so much inspiration from all the MOCs I see other people building. I see something that blows me away almost every single day, and just makes me want to keep learning!

This is going to seem like a weird thing to fixate on but I absolutely freaking love the dresser to the left. The open shelf is priceless. Is that a window?

Bookshelf and desk just great. Shuttle is awesome.

ID: gq5d3u0

Yes, it's a 2x2 window (it actually has a lattice window pane in it). It only works from this perspective though, because the window extends back into the dresser and you would see that from the left side. Could potentially be okay if you had a window frame that matched the dresser color.

Glad you liked it!

I love all the details you put into this. For some silly reason I really love the ladders used as vertical blinds for the window.

ID: gq5pau8

Glad you like it! I can't take credit for the idea for the vertical blinds - I saw it on a MOC by Jonas Kramm. I initially tried making curtains but they were conflicting with the lamp and statue on the desk.

I have a 9 year old daughter that loves lego and loves space. Wish this was a set!

cool detail with the airplane piece on the mini fig from the mystery fig sets, pretty cool ngl 🙂

ID: gq6826u

Thanks! The airplane girl minifigure from the current CMF was actually what sparked the idea for the whole thing. Originally was going to be a plane she was dreaming of, but my daughter loves space so changed it to a shuttle.

Would suggest a black and starry or planet background in the dream cloud. I know they fly through the air first, Anyway, that’s just a suggestion, great build.

ID: gq5b4id

100% agree with you. I wanted to have a black interior for the cloud both so it looked like space and to contrast with the white of the shuttle, I just unfortunately don't have enough black bricks and I didn't wanted to use studded plates.

34 : Anonymous2021/03/07 19:54 ID: gq4pue3

That's rad as hell, you see this video? Seems perfect.

ID: gq5bfwl

Thanks! I had not seen that video but it's really cool! My daughter has the same Lego shuttle they show in that video, which is what I was trying to emulate with the micro-sized one.
