Classic Space Colonial Green House Walker
Greetings, fellow FOLs. I know it has been a while since I last uploaded a MOC, and I got a little rusty with my LEGOs but I finally managed to spare some time to build another CS MOC. At first I wanted to build a spaceship, but later ended up building a giant Turtle Walker that's purposed to transport plant life from Earth to other planets.
About this creation
Colonial Green House Walker:

Seeing as many years into the future, the colorful space explorers began to colonize other planets. Therefore, they decided to transport some of Earth's different species of plants to the colonized planets. With the Colonial Green House Walker, Earth's plants can now dwell on other planets. This vehicle can grow over 30 species of plants for an extensive amount of time seeing as it features a glass dome from which the plants can obtain light from the sun, and also nourishes them with its long-lasting water supply. The movement and articulation of the vehicle is based on that of a turtle.











Closer look at the cockpit.

The glass dome is the turtle's shell.

The glass tubes on both sides of the dome are refillable water canisters from which the water is supplied to the plants.

A closer look at the plants and flowers in the dome.

Here's the red spaceman inspecting the plants.

Water supply and distribution can be managed from the panels on the rear of the walker.

Turtle Power!

Thanks for stoppin' by!
God Bless &
Keep On Birckin'!

Quoting Subic Vedran Great wehicle, briliant idea with 'turtle' and dome! I just don't get it how walker can deliver between planets.
It can't, but that is why there are spaceships that carry them to each planet :). I'm glad you like it.

Quoting Kermunklin the Giant Evil House Head Yes, I can see the practical significance being able to slowly, eventually deliver plants from one colony to another. A unique and sharp-looking build.
Thank you for the kind words! Also, thanks for making this build my most popular moc! :)

Quoting Stuart Lucas Ahh, just the thing to add a bit of colour to the Classic Space environment. Not to mention oxygen, those tanks have to be filled up somehow! Definitely the best CS plant-carrying giant turtle ever built.
Haha thanks!!! Your kind words made me smile!

Quoting Cameron Wilson Amazing work! I love the cockpit and the water canisters. Where did you get the dome?
I got the dome from an old LEGO Agents set. It was my brother's so I don't know the set number. It did include a helicopter and inferno's mech, which uses the dome.
