Build dozens of unique and intricate spacecraft with LEGO.

Build 52 galaxy-hopping LEGO spacecraft that can fit in the palm of your hand! Complete with step-by-step instructions and stunning full-color photography.

LEGO Space Projects rocket right past the standard science-fiction tropes, taking you to the edge of galactic design. The models in this book are built for enlightened celestial ambitions, like botanical research, comet mining, solar sailing, and experimental drive testing.

Get inspired by real-life spacecraft as you transform a handful of bricks into NASA-grade propulsion systems, heat shields, and solar collectors. Or let your imagination soar as you snap together an explorer mecha with maneuvering thrusters and hypersonic Cloud Skimmer.

LEGO fans of all skills and ages will have a blast building dozens of cleverly styled models, from sleek to comical, from retro to futuristic, from space stations to flying saucers-and beyond.

Projects range from 8 bricks to 100, and are brought to life by stunning full-color photography, witty descriptions, and detailed technical specs. Build them using the book's clear, step-by-step instructions, or use the techniques as a launchpad for your own designs!

Reviews for LEGO Space Projects: 52 Galactic Models

A pretty nice introduction to building microscale space, and for those new to the hobby, getting started in finding and ordering parts . . the small scale allows for a multitude of variety with ship styles that are defined in the book. Friesen has a lot to talk about in terms of the theme and building, and he does so with a voice that is slightly reminiscent of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Expect some humor in the book. -Joe Meno, Brick Journal The images are clear, as are the instructions . . . If you are interested in microscale spacecraft, either for the Neat Parts Usage, to create a small armada with the parts at hand, or you just love looking at beautifully rendered images of creatively designed LEGO models, you would be well advised to look at this book. -The Rambling Brick
