This build consists of the Sun, the Earth and the Moon, built on a vintage/antique style base. The Moon revolves around the Earth while the earth revolves around the Sun. The mechanics are hidden nicely inside the base. I have put a lot of effort into making the model as sturdy as I can, and the motion as smooth as possible. The model was built to look as nice as possible, with a detailed, brick-built version of the Earth.

Dimensions of the build: 35x18.5x28 (LxBxHcm)

This model has 1200 LEGO Bricks (give or take a few). I built the model digitally to check!

Thanks for checking this out!

Very nice!!
I was beginning to look at the mechanism, just to see if I could animate it... (with your permission)
But I think that there is one conical wheel missing to have the Earth rotate on itself, right ? (to allow the conical wheel already in place to move)
Or I just missed something...

@General_Veers I hadn't spotted that! Yes I will put it in soon! I would appreciate it so much if you did an animation of it! I was wanting to do one myself, but had no clue how to go about doing it!
