Here’s an NCS Crawler equipped with a pulse cannon, working suspension, and a comm dish. Uhhh… Oh! And that little red thing up in the turret? That’s my stand-in for a minifig for size reference.

I am ESPECIALLY proud of this guy. Took a few hours to build, with minute touch-ups here and there over the course of a few days. It mostly got built back to what it was. The only change that really stayed were the addition of the curved front fenders, the hose wrapped around the turret, and the satellite dish— which I have NO idea how I didn’t include it in the first place!

This whole series is built to scale with one another.

What do you guys think? I’m very excited to hear!

Well, I had to take down my workplace cause my family needed the table for stuff and I just put it all back together and since this is the cleanest it has ever been I thought I would share it my setup with y’all…

I’ll note stuff later cause I wanna go swimming now.

The rest of the pics. The cockpit does indeed swivel and the outer nacelles can pivot in or out as well.

Inside the NASA Crawler Transporter – PART 1 of 3

This is a guided tour I was given by KSC’s Crawler Transporter manager, back in 2000. We go throughout the interior and up on the top where the Mobile Launch platform for Apollo Saturn V and later the Space Shuttle stacks are mounted and taken out to the launch pad. You can learn more about these amazing machines at: www.nasa.gov With special thanks for the kind assistance of Kennedy Space Center PAO

An actual crawler cleat on display at the Apollo-Saturn V Museum.

This crawler cleat weighs close to a metric ton (2000 lbs) and it takes 57 such cleats to make up one of the eight belts that pull the Crawler-Transporter along its path.

The Crawler-Transporter was originally used to transport the Saturn V rocket, the Saturn IB rocket during Skylab and Apollo-Soyuz Test Project, and is now used to transport the Space Shuttle, from NASA’s Vehicle Assembly Building along the Crawlerway to Launch Complex 39.

The Crawler capacity is 12 million lbs or 5440 metric ton, with a maximum speed of 1 mph (loaded) or 2 mph (unloaded).
