Enter the Beast!

We don't usually report abandoned projects at Neo Classic Space, but sometimes you just have to make an exception. Take a look at porkshanks' Blue Beast. It would have been amazing if she'd finished it, but the interior details still make for some wonderful photography. Rather than dwell on what might have been, we'll just let you enjoy the pictures.

Day 31 Bonus: LL-930 Star Fleet Infinitum-A

In our last entry, we left the story of the Statue unfinished. For our last entry of the month, we complete the story with Mark Stafford's LL-930 Star Fleet Infinitum-A.



The Infinitum-A was built with new technology and the remains of the almost destroyed LL929. A new statue had been cast and was to be delivered to the site of the first Moonbase. This custom homage to the original space heroes was commission for this single flight.

In order to discourage bandit attack this time the rear section was built with a homing hyperdrive engine that would instantaneously return the rear module to Earth. However the front was a formidable fighter capable of holding it's own even against the technological marvels of the Green Jelly like Invaders of Mars.

Day 31: LL-929 Star Fleet Infinitum

Today we conclude our little trek through the Classic Space Federation with Mark Stafford's LL-929 Star Fleet Infinitum. Mark has managed to get hold of some parts from the new Space Police sets, making us all very envious.

LL-929 Star Fleet Infinitum

The designation LL929 was one of several that was strangely unused (or perhaps for used on a top secret test vehicle) during the time of 'classic' space exploration, almost thirty years later, after the fractioning of human space into the colonies we know today, the government of Earth commissioned this one of a kind custom vessel to make a very special delivery.

Day 30 Bonus: LL-414 Support Gunship and LL-114 Short-range Interceptor

Matt Holland has built a nice little gunship.

LL-414 Gunship

The black and yellow stripe in slopes is a particularly nice touch. We also rather like Matt's interceptor, even if the colour of the cockpit is wrong.

Day 30: LL-605 Marauder

As we near the end of our tour, we feel compelled to show you Peter Reid's latest ship, the LL-605 Marauder. Peter has really pushed the boat out on this one, offering a fantastic amount of detail.

LL-605 is a long-range tactical interceptor, designed for planetary surveillance and covert operations. Marauder performs admirably in a wide variety of atmospheres, as well as deep space.  

The ship is designed to keep its two-man crew comfortable over long periods of time, and has proved invaluable gathering data during the Ugokin conflict.

Day 29 Bonus: More Reimaginings

Another builder who has kept busy this month, DARKspawn has produced some fantastic tributes to classic sets.

Finally an original space ship: "Smoke me a kipper, I'll be back for breakfast."

Day 27: LL-077 Solar Enforcer

Today we catch up with the military arm of the Federation, and one of their "big guns", Mark Stafford's LL-077 Solar Enforcer.

Solar Enforcer

The LL-077 was one of the most heavily armed ships of it's era. Capable of decimating ground targets and maneuverable enough to more then hold it's own in a dog fight with the emerging threat of Blacktron. It's only drawback was it's own firepower, if all guns were fired at a target straight ahead the ship it would stop it's own forward momentum after only 5 seconds of firing, and early test pilot often found themselves in negative spins.

Mark says: Face it, whatever the classic space ship looked like, to a kid of the 70's they looked something like this in our heads, bristling with guns and ready for action! Just like in that Star Wars movie or Battle Beyond the Stars! Hope you all like it!


Day 26 Bonus: LL-562 Defender

A small, fast, heavily armed starfighter, Peter L Morris's LL-562 looks very swooshable indeed.

Peter says: So, this is more along the lines of what was going through my mind when I was asked to do a MOC for NCS month. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I went with the Seraph, but it's not exactly swoosh friendly. It can be swooshed, but the wings get in the way and tend to bump into things. Plus it's a pain to just set somewhere, as something ends up getting bent out of whack. This is more my speed. Simple landing gear, relatively tough, and not too terrible to look at.

Day 25 Bonus: LL-009 Tactical Fighter

Another amazing bonus from Nnenn, the LL-009, a slightly out dated model, but still a work-

Without various upgrades and additions, the ancient LL-009 would be completely dilapidated. Differences in ground crew over the years have kept any two ships from looking identical. And though an embarrassment to most pilots, at least Synths will fly them.
