Retro Spaceship Ready to Rocket Through Space

Many builders bring new designs, techniques, and styles forward in order to create incredible spaceships that look out of this world. No matter how cool they can be, sometimes it's nice to see a retro space build that brings things back down to Earth (so to speak). Boone Builds took the Retro Spacemen minifig from the 17th Collectible Minifigure Series as a source of inspiration to create this rad rocketship sporting some nice colors, sleek curvature, and powerful looking thrusters. I also really appreciate that Boone proves to us that you can swoosh this awesome spaceship. What do you guys think? Are you ready to try your hand at building some retro space models?!

Nathaniel Stoner

     My name is Nathaniel Stoner, and I am an very active LEGO builder.  I mostly build in the themes of castle and science-fiction, but I also dabble in other genres and create occasional random MOC's (My Own Creations). 

     When I was younger, I would get and build small LEGO sets for my birthday, but I was never really into them.  When they fell apart, I would become frustrated attempting to put them back together and would throw them in a box in my closet.  I couldn't stand them!

     Then, miraculously, I became addicted to the LEGO brick later in my teen years.  Ever since, I have continued to build up (pun intended) my collection of bricks and to expand my knowledge of techniques and building skills.  LEGO is truly more than a toy, its an art form and a way to express yourself.

     For the most part, I collect LEGO Star Wars (mainly the minifigs), which is probably my favorite LEGO theme.  I have a fairly decent collection, including some of the original 1999 sets, such as the Snowspeeder, X-Wing, and Naboo starfighter.  I also collected LEGO the Lord of the Rings when those sets first came out.  The minifigs are great, and the story remains one of my favorites ever. 

     My hope is to inspire other young (and perhaps even older) LEGO builders to unleash their inner creativity!  You can find me on my Flikr here

Spectre 501

Behold:  The Spectre 501 Long Range Recon Shuttle by Michal Kazmierczak!  As you can see, this thing is a monster, covered with all sorts of greebly goodies.  But what intrigues me the most is that Michal will be using this ship, and its multitude of access points, as the main setting for a sci-fi comic.  It's designed to open, as shown in the second pic, and even come apart for the purpose of photographing the crew and machinery within.  So stay tuned!
