German U-boat
This is a 4.5 foot German U-boat Took a very long time to make. This is the second version with a larger conning tower and better interior.
About this creation
Here is my german U-boat
This is my 3rd? version maybe version 2.5 but I added a lot more details

U-boats were used in World War 1 and World War 2
They were German submarines that were used to destroy
supply ships and sometimes to sink warships.
Although during world war 2 U-boats were not as succesful
because they could be easily spotted from the air when either close to the
surface or on the surface. When seen U-boats could easily be
destroyed by depth charges. U-boats ranged from about 210 feet long
to 300 feet. Conditions were very cramped-a crew of about 45 all sharing
one or two toilets. The use of U-boats stopped after world war 2 and the use
of all diesel and steampowered submarines stopped after the invention of the
nuclear submarine in 1959.

this model took me one medium sized order from lego
plz enjoy the pics!



Here is the back simple enough

This is the new conning tower with a new gun and communications cable


Here is the inside like some viewers requested. this is less cramped than a normal U-boat.


More interior shots


I made many improvements on this version
I made the bottom red (earlier I didn't know what color the hull was)
I also added a net cutter (as most U-boats do) and I improved the gun on the deck
This is not a fully accurate model the hull is usually red and the conning tower is normally taller
but I ran out of red pieces so this is it.
I know this makes people not want to rate and comment but,
Please!! rate and comment!!

Quoting Weston Euler Oh ok nvm put a pic of them on there cause they are the coolest part of a u-boat and dude,PLEEEEASE GIVE ME SOME TIPS ON BUILDING BIG MODELS:D.Oh yeah dont forget the rear torpedo tubes also :P
Unfortunately, I can't take any more pictures because I destroyed the model only two weeks ago for a larger project I'm working on. Tips-on building big models, Try to stay focused on the project because a lot of the time I learn about something even awsomer and get hooked on that without finishing that model. 2. Try to use S.N.O.T. if you can S.N.O.T. meaning studs not on top. Obiously I didn't use much of that because when I built this model about 9 months ago I really wasn't good at that. 3. Every builder has his or her own style-don't feel restricted to use only bricks try to use as many different peices as you can-now all I can do is hope this helps

Quoting Weston Euler Where are the torpedo tubes?
They're near the front of the sub and they are visible only in the main pictures-I know i screwed up on a lot of stuff and I'm trying to rebuild the model with more detail

here is my only suggestion here: your hull looks spot on for a late-war Type XXI, considering your rudder setup, however you tried for the type VII conning tower and deck gun. Look up the Type XXI, and you could modify your MOC into one of those. everybody does a VIIC MOC...of which I am guilty...but a Type XXI would be real neat. I like it a lot man. good job.
