The Classic Space Fly-In was held at BrickFest 2007 in Portland, Oregon, from March 30 to April 1st. The goal was to showcase each and every Classic Space Lego set, beginning with the first Classic sets in 1978, through the last Insectoids sets of 1999. It was a huge success!

Twelve different people participated by bringing sets, and several others by bringing baseplates. We succeeded in showing every single set, including duplicates when the same set had more than one set number - one set for each set number! We had special labels engraved for the event with each set number and the year it was introduced. These labels were given away after the event to those who brought sets as keepsake momentos.

The layout ended up being 40 feet long and 50 inches wide, with some monorail bits going wider than that, up to 5 feet. It covered 10 8' banquet tables. The area covered by baseplates was 5 by 47 32x32 stud baseplates, for a total stud covered area of 235 baseplates, or 240,640 studs. It included brickscaped walls around the Blacktron I and Ice Planet areas, and separating the grey baseplate area from the black baseplate area. Overall the arrangement was by year and theme, oldest to newest, but varied so things went together well. A whole bunch of monorail track tied it together.

A great big THANK YOU to those who brought sets, helped with the setup (which took until about 1:00 on Saturday the 31st), answered questions for the public and helped to take it down again. So here it is - space complete, with the exception only of a few greebles lost in transit. Enjoy!


This last picture is the 1/8 scale model of the layout.

Here are all the sets that were there, and the contributors - thanks guys!
