Hi there, here I start my WIP, my idea for the challenge is a space rover in the imagination of a child: a LEGO vehicle, that can explore the hole universum from the living room in your house and all the way to Pluto the 9th planet from the Sun.

My LEGO space rover is based and inspired on the LEGO vehicles created by Legolize It Man, here comes some reference images.

Cheers!

Before starting any 3D modelling, I decided to build my vehicle with real Lego bricks, so I have spent the last 2 weeks putting bricks together and almost the complete body of the vehicle is ready, there are some pieces I dont have but will add them when 3d modelling.

And yes, it has been fun to build.

And some testing on the suspension system, yeah it is going to be a working one... the wheels are a little bit too small to my taste, and I only could find 3, so I have to imagine the other 3... left to do: the cabin

and a little render and colours test, the model is not textured yet, so only plain materials and colours
