Very old bricks go swoosh!
Ahh, classic space. The era between 1978 and 1987, where space minifigs didn't have visors on their helmets and spaceships were blue, gray and blocky. Blocky? Not necessarily. Building classic space is all about makang swift and swooshable models. Either using modern parts and building techniques, such as legoloverman from flickr does, or using only old parts. I did the old part thing, trying to keep my ship smooth on the surface, greebly underneath and wierdly angled all around. Check it out!
That's right, classic city parts like car jacks and fences serve well as greebles. But my absolute favourite: The Fabuland mailbox cap right behind the pilot. I have this piece like forever and now finally found a use for it...
