Microscale Moonbase

Name of Model: MicroMoonbase
Created by: graviton
Found at:
A while back, adult LEGO space fans came up with a standardized format for an on-planet space station so that glamorous space layouts could be assembled quickly at LEGO enthusiast events. That system is called "moonbase", and I'll blog more about it (and its constraints) another day. Today though, I'm featuring a microscale variation on the concept - small sections of planet surface in an extremely small scale (even smaller than the standard minifig scale used for most moonbase modules). For obvious reasons, there are lots of cool little tricks hidden in this model. I like some of the clever uses of color to make the different sections distinct as well.
