|DID YOU KNOW?
|Originally developed by AFOL's on the East Coast of the United States the first large scale Moonbase display was in Seattle at NWBrickCon demonstrating the utility of a modular building system.
Moonbase is a term for a modular building standard developed by the Space community c.2002. Creations built following the standard can be joined together to form large, elaborate bases on the moon (or other planets).
Components of the system

DelVaLUG Moonbase 2012
In 2012 a modification of the standard was developed by DelVaLUG2012 which raised the baseplates 5 plates (or one brick and two plates) off the table surface. This is similar to the Baseplate Plus Brick modification to the Classic Castle City Standard used in many Castle displays.
