    -------------------

    This is a micro-scale of the classic space set 497 (or 928) from 1979, more than 30 years ago.

    This micro-scale set attempts to capture the important features that make 497/928 so appealing and fun. The opening cargo bay door to load the rover is included in this design.

    Well, it would be a nostalgic little set that finds a place on your working desktop; for you to reminisce about childhood play while taking a break from your focus.

    I'll leave the pictures to convince you of your support.

    Thank you for reading.
    Wolf.

    The details. This setup mimics a page from the original 497/928 instruction manual.

    Why not make this set a bit more special and memorable? Let's have a special minfig to remember the 70s and 80s! Yes, this is inspired by the statue minifig from the 5974 Galactic Enforcer set.
