SweBrick V - Moonbase

This was part of a larger event, see the events general blogg post.

The theme for things to build at home and bring along was modules for a common moonbase, based on Anders Isakssons 16x microstandard.

Oskar plays with the modules before they got moved to the apartment, it was too big to fit in the venue.
