See? Just listen to old people's advice ;)

As for the grainy speckles, those have the pleasant property that they
can be reduced simply by throwing more computing time at it. UberPOV's
anti-aliasing mode 3 is your friend there.

What is that device attached to the attic roof on the right end?

I do not have this time, unfortunately. I have about a hundred models, 
and each render is taking me 16+ hours.

This very set I had when I was 10 years old, back in 1979! And also the 
LL 918, and, somewhat later, the LL 928 (my younger brother had the LL 924)!

See you in Khyberspace!

Interestingly enough, 891 (442 in the US) was one of just two sets from
the European 1979 generation of space series my brother and I did /not/
own (not counting baseplate sets).

My very first classic space set was the 889 radar vehicle; from that day
on, the percentage of non-space sets among our subsequent new
acquisitions dropped to almost zero, and never recovered.

LL 928 will probably always be my favorite LEGO space set, rivaled only
by 6929 (which we never owned).
