About this creation

This ship was built for the 5th anniversary of the 0937 community. ^^

The MOC represents the Pr. 23 Bis with some differences made by me.

This ship never existed in the real world, it was never finished!

The Sovetsky Soyuz class battleships (Project 23) ( линкор Советский Союз проект 23 ) were a class of battleships begun by the Soviet Union in the late 1930s but never brought into service. They were designed in response to the battleships being built by Germany. Only four hulls of the sixteen originally planned had been laid down by 1940, when the decision was made to cut the program to only three ships to divert resources to an expanded army rearmament program.

These ships would have rivaled the Imperial Japanese Yamato class in size. They would have been superior to their German rivals, the Bismarck class, at least on paper.

Leaving Murmansk in 1942... with a secret mission...

To sink the battleship Tirpitz!!!

The MOC features rotating main turrets and elevation; a small radar will be added later. The MOC is also divided in three parts. Hope you like it!

9 406mm (16) B-37 guns in three triple turrets;

Yes, I know that there wasnt a Mig-3 floatplane version. Still, I needed a fast and small recce floatplane fighter for my Battleship and I choose this plane.
There are two versions, one with white wings and other with red wings.

Some AA guns


Hope you like it ^^

One of your greatest MOCs. Thought I'd share that the fine gents at Shipbucket took interest in it a while ago: http://www.shipbucket.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2847&hilit=Sovetsky+Soyuz Btw, which stage of the Sovetskij Soyuz project was this? According to Linkory Vtoroj Mirovoj(a book), the SS was to carry six 6-inch guns in six twins for secondaries? It's not critique on the accuracy, but I'm a bit curious. ;-)

Quoting Lego 4 Life It's still so amazing! I would like to see more detailed pictures of the hull so if you have some pics like that, please send to "ntruongchanh1995@gmail.com". Btw can you please check out my new aircraft carrier? It's pretty interesting (^^).
Thanks Lego 4 Life! Well, I dont have many pictures of the hull during the construction. Please visit my brickshelf folder and you can find there more photos during the construction. http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=481171 Yes, I have already seen your aircraft carrier and Im going to comment ^^

Quoting Anders T Partly because of this posting, I find that you seem to be an expert at building historically accurate ships and I think that you would be a true source of inspiration and a valuable giver of advice to future shipbuilders, so I have taken the liberty to invite you to my new group Ship Builders guide.
Thanks for your invitation! I will join your group. ^^

A masterpiece! One just has to fall in love with those planes and secondary armament...What-if topic makes it even more interesting and I'd love to see some other abandoned projects in LEGO version. Naval architects' imagination was trully amazing during the 20's and 30's.

Awesome modell! What scale are you using? IMO, the Sovetsky Soyuz wouldn't have been a very good battleship, as the russians had hardly any experiance of BB building, but your modell is awesome non the less!
