Circling the wheel in space


If like me you’ve been following Tim Goddard’s Instagram feed , you’ll have seen him teasing a fleet of colourful microscale LEGO spaceships over the past few weeks. Well the big reveal is finally here: I give you the Perhelion Point space station and attendant spacecraft. Constructed as a series of scaled disks that rotate around a central core, it looks wonderful hanging atmospherically in orbit.

Up close you’ll find some neat building techniques, like the modified plates with pin holes , which are matched with turntable disks to form the station’s super-structure. Naturally, there are multiple landing ports and shuttles to liven things up too.

Then there are the spaceships themselves, each a little work of art in their own right; as well as a nod toward the best science-fiction illustration of the 1970s.
