Not surprisingly I played with LEGO quite a lot when I was a kid. I built various things with it including houses. But mostly I built spaceships. Lots of spaceships which could fly around and fight each other and generally do cool things.
None of my spaceships looked as good as the LL-811 (except in my head).
But what I really like about Michael Gale's spaceship is that it has such an old school look and feel about it. Well that and the really cool interiors. Check out all the photos in his Flickr photo set.
