There's a nice selection of LEGO Soviet spacecraft on Flickr. The models include Vostok, Voskhod, Lunakhod, N1 rocket, LK Lunar Lander and the R7 Rocket Family.

These are "custom-made" LEGO and so NOT for sale... unless they could set up a voting system as they did for the custom-made Curiosity rover... correct?

All of them are very cool. The Voskhod with Leonov coming out of the airlock is just INSPIRED though! I love it!

If the builder has posted them on Rebrickable, the building instruction could be posted and you can collect the parts from places like Bricklink and build them yourself. That is how I built Curiosity last year.

The Lunokhod is on CUUSOO and can be voted for, but the others are not. None of them are on ReBrickable.

I totally forgot I commented about the Lunokhod 6 months ago and he responded with link to Brickshelf. It has a Lego Digital Designer file, so you can figure out the parts and build it from there if you want. I wish he had the others available.

Thanks, Ron. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like his other designs have LDD files.
