Battleship
A WWII era battleship. Ship is fictional, but I used pictures of Yamato, Iowa, Hood, and Vittorio Veneto for reference. The influence of Yamato is probably most obvious.
About this creation

The bulk of the vertical rise of the hull is stripped away for
economy and so my 5 year old can drag it across the floor without
tipping it over. (Unfortunately, his favorite activity is actually
bombing the ship, and, as 5 year olds are not big on etiquette, he does
not achieve this with LEGO planes, but rather figurines from an old
Axis and Allies set. Sigh ..., it's fine. On a good day, no LEGOs
find their way up his nose.)























Here is a scout being recovered, and another waiting on a
catapult to launch. God help them if they get caught by any of those
Axis-Allies fighters.



Fortunate for mini figs this isn't to their scale, because I
don't think these things will fly. And I seem to recall that
Legos don't float.






The 5 calibers of guns found on the ship.






I have to go bone up on my Technic skills now. I'd like to get the
radars to emit at 100-200MHz. ;^}

Quoting Sarge . why are the black side parts black
again, just the parts I had available. I would have liked to do it in gray, but did not have many of the required parts. In fact, I'm pretty sure I still don't.

Awesome battleship. I can see the Yamato influences on the funnel, and the overall artillery layout, with the secondary art. superfiring the main art. The conning tower looks very italian IMO. Good work.

Thanks. You have an informed eye for these things, and judging from your own MOCs, I can see why. I had originally intended to model Yamato's aft, but ran out of bricks and went with something simpler.

So long as there is air in at least one of the bricks, the ship should float nicely ;) otherwise excellent model, and the perfect size to play with (and make an official model, should Lego choose to. Great build, top rating!

Tom, you have some serious skill at the military ships. This is a great battleship, and W Mark, they did not all use tan, so chill out a bit.

The details here are great. The addition of a recovery boom and a plane is a nice touch. The decking isn't tan like the wood used on the decks of many ships of this type, though.

This is seriously impressive. As an ex-squid, it conjures up some memories. Actually, I might be going down to N. Carolina to see the Battleship North Carolina this weekend. I'll have to take some comparison shots. :)

Okay. Wow. I've never seen so much detail packed into such a small scale! This thing is awesome! Very, very, good job.

Man, this is GREAT! The S.S. West Virgina was also a great ship. Her bow flag pole is in my town. And I touched it. (You can really touch it) Of all those men that died on 12-7-1941, the West Virgina was one of em.

Beautiful job on the form and the detailing from what I can see. Unfortunately MOCpages excruciatingly slow loading keeps me from opening most of the larger pics, but I checked out a few. Brilliant work!

Fictional or not, fabulous still! American? Doesn't look Japanese, the superstructure is too small?

Thje profiling on this ship is great, as well as your adjustable guns, the awesome bi-plane scouts, well, everything about this ship is just marvelous. Consider this a resounding success. ~T

Quoting Henrik Hoexbroe This one has a really nice profle. Looks very real! Some numbers would be nice; How long is the ship?
Arghh! I knew I forgot something. You are right Henrik. Too late, my little bomber has had at it. It is 107 cm (about 42 inches) long.
