Early 2004 Marco came up the idea to have a Moonbase layout at Legoworld in oktober that year, something not tried before in Holland. The result was a small layout with 10 participants. On the last day of Legoworld, Mike, one of the participants of the Moonbase project, suggested that we go on with the idea of Moonbase. Mike and Marco shared many of the same ideas and interests in Space and Moonbase. Dutch Moonbase was born.
