LEGO introduces America's vehicles with free instructions

Overview of USA's release vehicles in LEGO format: Instructions for all models are free in PDF format.

The story started in July 2023 when I learned that LEGO published its former magazine Explorer's issue 03/2023 (unfortunately it has been discontinued since the end of July 2023). Attached to it was Polybag 11976 (Spaceship), which immediately caught our attention (my LEGO and space travel buddy Ralph and myself as the author of this article).

Comparing the assembled LEGO polybag 11976 spaceship (left image) with the original (middle image) and the LEGO designer's descriptions, “The important thing for me is that the tank and solid rocket launchers can be removed. A real spaceship. “The tank needs to be securely attached while playing, but easy to remove without destroying the rest of the model” is the reason for modifying or expanding the space shuttle according to our ideas.

After successfully executing this (right image), we came up with the idea that we could also build the SLS rockets (Block 1 and Block 1B) at the same scale (approx. 1:510).

We have both MOD/MOC on English language website Collection point (Forum Space Collectibles – Models & Toys) was published. On December 30, 2023, founder and editor Robert Perlman said: “I love them, Harold! It would be great to complete a complete series of US launchers of this style/size.”

As this is a good idea, the next step is to check whether these launch vehicles can be implemented in such a small scale using LEGO bricks. Conclusion: All launch vehicles can be built this way, although due to the small size, some parts cannot be accurately mapped. However, the launchers can be identified.

It's amazing that a small and interesting LEGO polybag is the beginning of such a story. After two reports on the LEGO Polybag 11976 Space Shuttle already published here, a third report now follows. At the moment, astronauts or their shelters (capsules or space stations) are about all of the United States' launch vehicles carried into space for their respective missions.

With general notes

» First, the proportions must be modeled to some degree, which is what happens with existing Lego bricks.
Given size is always easy and sometimes impossible.
» The basic shape is also important, i.e. curves or other shapes are implemented. On such a scale it is
It also makes sense to avoid details.
» If possible, colors should also be adopted from the original.
» In these building instructions, we provide suggestions on how to build America's missile vehicles with Lego bricks.
» Additionally, used LEGO bricks are shown here for purchase.
» Stones are used in available colors that are not in the desired color. Single people
Stones are described in detail in the building instructions. Anyone interested decides for themselves how to proceed with this.
The same applies to the tagging topic, as the volume is so small that we have omitted to provide recommendations here.
to do
» Construction instructions contain information about launchers, colors and markings.
» Wherever possible, markings are made using Lego bricks.
» For non-perceived signs and texts, the construction instructions contain descriptions and links to images that provide sufficient information.
Show up well and therefore be an aid to decision-making.
