We recently mentioned the upcoming 1:48 scale Soviet lunar lander from Fantastic Plastic, and now here’s another blast from the past, with the same spacecraft made out of Lego bricks.

There’s not a lot to say about the construction of, or the parts required to build the lunar lander model, as Lego artist ‘Kei_Kei_Flic’ hasn’t left any details at the Flickr Photostream site. Still, it looks good, which is what counts, and is more proof (if any were needed) that Lego has to be the world’s most useful and diverse toy building-brick system.

Enjoy these pix, and note the excellent N1 booster that KKF has made (above right), even if it isn’t to the same scale as the convincing lunar lander model. There’s also a neat-looking Vostok to look at on Flickr, though we think the LK lunar lander outpoints it, all helped by the well-lit and sharp photography throughout.
