Now, I know what you are thinking. "It looks like he didn't even try to make it actually seem like the ocean. I can even see that it is in a plastic bin." Truth is, I don't have any sort of fancy-smancy stuff like you guys do. Are we or are we not going through what could best be described as the second great depression? Next time I'll use a bath tub. Anyway, we can see that after 30 years of service, the SS Brickton has run out of luck on a Mediterranean cruise, when it collided with an oil tanker just of the coast of Greece, in only 120 feet of water. You can see that some people are clinging on to the doomed ship, while others are in half flooded lifeboats.
About this creation


Here we see the poor souls who may have survived the collision and most of the sinking, but are left to cling onto the ship as it literally disappears into the water. The man with his arms held high lost his grip on the railing, so now he slides down the hull. If he has enough energy, he may be able to swim to the life boats, which are 50 yards away. The ship will go down in 2 to 3 minutes, and with only one oar it would be useless.



The survivors. You can see that they are helping aboard the victims who, well, made it out of becoming a victim. The man with the oar is beginning to oar towards the Brickton, in hopes of rescuing someone. If you look close you can see that the lifeboats are swamped with water, yet they continue to stay afloat.



The ship has capsized. This has killed everyone that was clinging onto the lifeboat, and everyone sitting on the ships hull. The rooms are beginning to fill up with water. Once they have all filled up, she will begin the final plunge.

Quoting Kevin Carston I really like it, I just think that you should take another pic in the bathtub. (When taking the pic don't show the bathtub!)
Okay Kevin, I'm working on an updated version of this MOC and the tub will serve as the ocean. I also posted an updated version of the ship itself.
