Info: Only little is known so far about what is hiding beneath the surface of countless oceans throughout our galaxy. With the machines of Dark Augusto becoming a greater threat for humans day after day, our government decided to prepare a Plan B. Therefore they now gave permission to Kaijo Research Labs to explore the ground of the seas in search of an alternate living space for humans. There we could hide our existence and evacuate our civilication, women and children in particular, while droids harshly attack our planets, fighted desperately by our fleet and ground forces.
Well, so far this is just a Plan B, and we don't know how this war will go on...it might already be too late though...who knows...











Note:
I recycled my white minifighter here :D Actually I wanted to try out two new techniques for the first time [the twisted cord thing on the back and the air tanks]...I think there still is a lot of development potential for those...and I was inspired by Legohaulic for using those skis on the engine :) When I first saw his Keelhauler I immediatedly fell in love with that ingenious engine design...somehow he removed those pics though...

So now, do you like it? Actually I like it a lot hehe :D

Alternate version with blue highlights to follow the NEOS colour scheme...(photoshopped...^^)

Comments are welcome ;) Thanks!

I like the use of two windscreen elements; it realistically adds 'visibility' for the pilot.

Hehe, thanks Dennis! ^^
Quoting Ryan Tennant :O i commented on this ages ago! lol i will just say what i said before... nice work! i love the original design! do you think we should have green and white colour scheme as our underwater units? :P it looks realy good! everything is in the right place! great work! 5/5 ^_^
Thanks! Do you think there will be more underwater units coming? I don't think that it's very popular...

I like the profile of this build, and the greebles are just right. The engine and "twisty thing" look great, and the angle of the cockpit would be what I'd want in a such a submersible craft. Wonder what Jacques Cousteau would have done with something like this? Great build!

Quoting Moodswim . This is pretty cool and very original (like all your mocs)! How did you make that twisted cord on the back?
thanks! dunno how to explain...well, there are those 1x1 bricks with studs on all sides on both ends of a 10L 3mm pipe (that pipe/hose from my samurai hardsuit). then 4 of those strings with handles are attached to the brick as you can see at the very end. all you have to do is turn both ends in the opposite direction until it looks like that ;) hope that makes sense? maybe I should upload some pics along with my upcoming starfighter...I guess that's easier to follow...^^

Quoting Cody G yeah, I like the green better. blue's not bad though.
boah hey, stop rating my moc, I feel already bad about it...lol :D though I think you are right, the blue didn't turn out as bad as I thought...but it's a bit wrong coloured...well, who cares ^^

Quoting Cody G nice one! the cord technique turned out great! it doesn't really follow NEOS colors, but then again, we don't have any set colors for underwater. great idea!
yeah I know...actually it wasn't meant to be NEOS first...but then I thought...why not...it looks cool, so...if you want me to remove it, I have no problems with that! I think the green highlights work a lot better here than blue, red or yellow, so I won't change that for sure ;)

Quoting Jake H. It's okay but I think it would look better as a robot or creature, it just has too much of an organic feel.
that's the future...everything looks organic :D well, ok, I guess you might have a point, still I think it's cool that it fits a whole minifig with breathing apparatus ^^
