Default The LP Explorer Car

I spotted a rather snappy looking 1960s era 'Moon Buggy' on a site devoted to plastic space toys.

It was the product of a rather shadowy Hong Kong manufacturer known as 'LP' who seem to have supplied plastic spacemen to just about everyone. Pictures (Showing all known variants.), including the interesting detail that the tracks/running gear seem to have been copied off a Panzer IV(!) can be found at the link below:

I think it would make a nice addition to the Orbiter universe.

One other thing that might help in scaling, from the looks of the packaging illustration (Linked below...), the cabs held two suited astronauts side by site.

Sadly there is another illustration which shows the astronauts seated one behind the other...

So it will be up to the designer which one he uses.

Here are the lasertanks. If you wanted the wheels to turn you would need to hard code general vehicle into your dll. If you wanted the animation to work and main vessel and wheel vessel would be needed.
