For those of you that aren’t aware of what this set is based on, SpaceX is owned by PayPal and Tesla owner Elon Musk, and it’s the first privately owned aerospace company tasked with ultimately getting a manned mission to Mars and colonising the planet. It’s also aiming to lower the costs of space travel by making them reusable, rather than discarding bits as they take off. It’s all very interesting stuff!

The Falcon Heavy is the heaviest rocket in use and had it’s maiden voyage in February. While the subject matter is interesting, I’m not the biggest fan of the model. After the awesomeness of the Saturn V, it’s difficult to test the popularity on a relatively unknown spacecraft. You can find out more about this project, including other images of the interior and build at the LEGO Ideas project page.
