Aquastlenauts: If I had a hammer.
A rebuild of the old blacksmith castle set, aquastlenauts-style!
About this creation
Yeah, I know, it's been a while. Theater and my babygirl have been absorbing all my free time lately. But everytime I get like ten minutes off, I call on the bricks. This MOC took me four months to complete, and it won't get any better. So patience, people, it will be rewarded!

And now, on with the show!



Here's a front and a back view of my hammerhead shark thingy...





The idea behind this all was to recreate an old blacksmith set from the eighties in Aquastlenauts style. Unfortunately, I never had the set (anybody knows wich one I'm refering to?). Even more unfortunately, I don't have a hammer for the minifig...Hmmm, in comes the hammerhead shark.





And heck, why not make two? Nearly all my sloped black ones went into these two. As you can see, I used the boat elements for the head. In this building technique I combined SNOT with studs to the back of the MOC. Rather difficult, really, it's like writing backwards...The eyes are decals.



Everytime I make something Aquastlenauts, I like to try something else with the coral. This time it's been a real challenge. The fun part is that you can go really wild on colours...



I believe you know who these two are, Mr Phipson? (Thanks again, man!) I like to call them "The Sisters of Mer - Sea"



This is the smith's place. See? No hammer. Dang!






Aaaah! Some things I'm really proud of: Sponges & starfish!






Some more views from the top. I'm very pleased with the curve of the sharks tail; It gives a more swim feel to them. Also, those Aquanauts baseplates are so much fun to work with, without those it's really hard to recreate an oceans bottom. (No not you, Shannon.)






Some nice shots to finish. Oh, my starsign is pisces, so there you go. That should explain a lot...




Thanks for looking and feel free to leave a comment if you like what you SEA!

Quoting liam kirwan Brilliant! I love the amount of aquatic detail that you have put into this amazing MOC. The colours, combined with the unique use of pieces is outstanding. The sharks bring the whole MOC together. One thing you could improve on is the lighting and pictures. Liam Kirwan (from the MOC Refinery)
Thanks! And I know, I'm working on it. Saving for a better camera...

Fantastic. Is the blacksmith's shop the same set as the armory? I wanted that one so badly when I was 8-9 years old. I never did get it, though. In the MocOlympics, I hoped to get this category, mainly so I could play with the coral. If I ever get time...Anyway, great build here.

Wonderful creation, Gio! I especially love the use of regular elements to create sea life. Although I must say, I think the blacksmith could've been a bit more... Aqua. Still though; you're the founder, you know it best! Good day

You've once again proven that you are the Aquastlenauts master! Those sharks are scary big and look amazing. You make coral look easy to build and I know that it's not easy AT ALL! The smithy looks great even if the guy is missing a hammer.

You are MORE than welcome for the Leia torsos my friend. I'm glad I could help out with that. And by the way, just who do you think you are with the 4 month wait? Kelso? HAHAHA jokeing aside, this is just a buffet of color and interesting parts usage for the eyes and those sharks ain't half bad (ie: AWESOME). Thanks for sharing... I think I hear your daughter crying. Get off the computer and go help her out man! HAHA ~ Chris.

Oh man, oh man, oh man, oh man! Whenever you post aquastlenauts I get SO excited! The hammerhead (of course) is the show-piece, but I love the way you use bricks in ways I've never even thought of in creating the underwater environment. Kudos!
