Building Idea: Space Dart

Space Dart

I've always been fascinated by space exploration and my first Lego set was a small hover scooter with an astronaut and a computer. I've made some instructions for a small rocket craft inspired by another 1980s set known as the Space Dart or Zero 10 Interceptor. Instructions after the break…

This is a more advanced build than the truck I posted here previously. It you don’t have all of the pieces in grey, try to see if you have them in other colours, or swap in different parts instead.

Here is a link to the PDF instructions:

There is a list of all the parts used in the model on the final pages of the instructions.

I built the Space Dart as part of a space station for a feature on the Brothers Brick celebrating the 40th anniversary of the original Lego space exploration sets. You can read the interview with me and some other Space builders here.

If you’d like to see more of my space models, you can watch this interview on Beyond the Brick which was filmed at the Great Western Brick Show in 2019. There are also lots of photos of spaceships both large and small, as well as planetary rovers and robots on my Flickr abum.
