This is part 1 of my modifying the LEGO City Deep Space Rocket Launch Control set 60228. In this video, I’ll be working on the launch control to turn it into more of a Mission Control similar to what you see at NASA with their Apollo Launches 50 years ago!
My goal here is to remove some of the features I don’t like or won’t use from LEGO City 60228, and then make the whole structure bigger. The reason being that I want a multi-level stage in there that more controllers can sit at, like the NASA Apollo Mission Control.
This will mean making it 4 studs wider for a walkway down the middle. Then doubling the length for the seating. Before adding in several new desks. I want to try and capture that feeling of how busy and chaotic the room would be during the busy NASA Apollo missions. These people practically live in that room and it needs to show it. And of course, it has to include some essentials like a coffee machine and water cooler.
I have tried to keep some of the better features of the original, such as the big windows and that awesome mission control screen. This is not the end of my work on this building, but it is a great start I think!
And for this build I did use a lot of parts from the LEGO City Police Station 60141 set. It has a lot of big pieces in useful colours.
Let me know what you think along with suggestions when you’ve finished watching the video and don’t forget to like it!
