Comicbook Jim Spaceborn
Long, long time ago in a galaxy far far away ...
In the early 80's a number of LEGO models were created by the LEGO Group with the intension to make a comicbook. Frank Madsen used these models to create the exciting comicbook 'Jim Spaceborn'. It was first published in 1985.
The largest model is a spaceship called "The Spearhead" where Jim Spaceborn and 300 crew members live. Together they make a voyage through space. I have made a replica of the 'Spearhead'. I also made a replica of the 'Pathfinder' a smaller spaceship which is also drawn in the comicbook.
"The Spearhead" has a length of 117 cm, a width of 56 cm and a height of 35 cm. It is made using over 5,400 LEGO bricks. With a weight of 13 kg it is not easy for childeren to fly it around the room, but just looking at it is a pleasure aswell.
