If you are a fan of LEGO Classic Space and the #70816 LEGO Benny’s Spaceship, Spaceship, SPACESHIP! set, here is a fun project for you; a mini version of Benny’s Spaceship by Chris McVeigh. You might remember that we discussed another little LEGO Classic Spaceship that appeared on The LEGO Movie poster and was reverse-engineered by Peter Morris and also provided full building instructions, see here: Build a Small LEGO Classic Spaceship. And now let’s talk about the mini version of Benny’s Spaceship! 🙂
In the style of Anna’s song from the animated-film Frozen, Chris McVeigh even wrote a little poem for Benny: “Do you want to build a Spaceship? We could fly it ’round the halls! I think a ship in blue… is overdue, I’ve started building engine pods!” Cute, isn’t it? The little spaceship itself is built with the standard LEGO Classic Space color-scheme and includes a surprising amount of accurate detail for such a small scale; it even got the little wing-flyers, and the flaps over those large yellow space-cannons. This would actually make a wonderful addition to the full-size Benny’s Spaceship; you could build a whole fleet of them as companion one-person cruisers – just an idea!
Speaking about building the small version of Benny’s Spaceship, Chris provides step-by-step instructions you can download in PDF format from his website for free. (As you may remember, we have featured Chris here before; he is well known for his sweet LEGO Christmas ornaments and other small models – you can check out building instructions for those as well.)
The mini version of Benny’s Spaceship can be a fun weekend project to expand your LEGO Classic Space collection. And if you don’t have it already, you can find Benny’s Spaceship at the Online LEGO Shop.
So what do you think? Are you planning to build this small version of Benny’s Spaceship? Are you a LEGO Classic Space fan? Or did The LEGO Movie start or revive your interest in LEGO Classic Space? Would you like to have the theme come back with more sets than just Benny’s Spaceship and the LEGO Exo Suit set? Feel free to share in the comment section below! 😉
