Poseidon - Entry 18 - LDD WIP - Citadel update
25858 bricks!
About this creation
Well, I know what you will say: "still no helicopter on this ship?!"

I've thought about my design, and some comments I had, and wanted my citadel to be a bit less "massive aspect", regarding to the hull's size.

Thanks to the modular design of Poseidon, I could do that without unmounting all the building, and this is honestly and finally quite a small change.(the modular design will allow me to open to access inside the hull if I ever build it one day! ;-))

I've also added some more weaponery, with side single machiguns.

The very good news is that I could finally make some far more beautiful screenshots with outlines activated, in graphic options... on my second slower PC!?!(But as soon as I modify anything, it crashes...)
Sometimes, when you're looking for a logical reason in a computer behavior, just give up!

I hope you'll like the new citadel!(Particularly you, Christophe! =))

See ya, fellow builders!

Quoting White Knight An Incredible job ! A floating Citadel and a good looking vessel ! It must have taken you forever to produce that on the computer !?!>.....well done and I`ll keep an eye out just in case you make it for real !.....

Thanks To all who support me for mouting this monster... I've got a 3D plan, but it has some hiden details, make me feeling it's impossible. I've got to cut precisely the hull, into some buildable parts...

Quoting lone wolf She is such an amazing vessel already, and she isnt even real yet! She is going to rule the seas when you get her in bricks! But one question about that: i was building a german tiger tank on LDD recently and the design by me was disabled, has this happened to you? If so, how are you going buy her? It would take a long time to buy every brick. -Wolf
Hello, Wolf! I've sent my ship into three files to the Lego Company. They have generated an excell listing file with each component necessary. I know it will take a long time to order every parts... But I'm still thinking about it! ^^

Also, I was told that you should be sure to see this: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/311875 It is my attempt to use prefab parts to make a more rounded looking submarine. I might explore this technique more to see if I can get something a little more refined out of it.

Bref, toujours est-il que les changements sont bien meme si je l'aurai vu encore un poil plus long de la proue.... genre un metre ou deux..... MOUHAHAHAHAAAAA !!!!! non j'deconne, la VRAIE question que je me pose est quand va tu commander les pieces pour fabriquer ce "petit" truc ??? parce que LA, mes condoleances pour ton portefeuille comme dirait Dan the Man..... mais au vu du resultat que ca peut donner..... du bon gros lourd sa race !!!!
J'étais super triste, je croyais que tu n'aimais définitevement pas ce bateau! J'ai trop hate de sa race de vous le montrer pour de vrai, avec ma p'tite tête à coté! ^^

Thanks, Simone! I've actually tried to design a chopper, and already posted a model, but I've modified it to become a bit smaller and handled by one guy. Come and check my last creation, if you want to have an idea of it. =)

Quoting Chris Melby So when is this thing gonna be done? Leave some bricks for the rest of us, Geez!
ahahaha! I've already calculated the mounting instructions for the citadel... My biggest computer is now calculating the hull, and that seems very long!!! I've separated the boat in 2 files: the citadel and the hull. I hope I'll be in time to order!

Quoting Ultramarine . I'm in awe here over this! The guns are placed well, and the whole kit. My only complaint is that the hull appears to be a tad too tall, but that could be just me. Great work, keep it up! -Ultra

Quoting Awesome Builder 25858 bricks?? whoa.. I cant even BEGIN to imagine how horrible the lag is
Mmmmm... The lag is quite ok! The bugs and crashes are much more annoying, dude! I'm saving every few changes, and backup my file in another place! I lose a lot of time!

Quoting Deus Otiosus Cool, I guess. It's interesting how only now I've thought about it, but how sturdy will it be? I think the most problematic part should be the bottom red thing.
I'm quite confident about the keel! And for the global structure, I've used my good old waterproof walls technic(something like 5 or 6 "2 studs" walls link the hull's sides). The hull is minimum 2 stud in width too; and I've made my maximum to cross all the bricks, using different types of bricks to make it. I'll say same technic as for Titan! Very simple! You reinforce every weak point! I hope I've not forgotten anything! I'm a little bit more perplex about making an elegant and strong stand, now. But I've already thought about a few solutions. Wait and see... =)

Quoting Jon B This looks amazing, can't wait to see it built! I think you're going to need a bigger house at this rate!
You're right, but what is reasonable, when you've got a passion, and you can quite satisfy it? I think my future creations will have to be far smaller! ;-)

  January 5, 2012
Quoting George Staples That is huge! I like the Poseidon trident, and the guns. Those black ones look like they are droid controlled.
As a modern futuristic battleship(maybe the shape did not tell you that! =)), it has of course automations like the turrets, wich can, be manned in option, and an IA system to control everything onboard efficiently! ;-)...

Quoting David Cook before you buy this, remember o make a stand, one of my friends made that mistake after making a huge LDD model and forgot to make a stand before he bought it so it sat sideways all the time lol

Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist Wow, that's amazing! Looks like it's nearing completion, how long is it?
Thanks! It might be more than 2 meters... I don't know precisely... But you can compare with my quite big Titan submarine here: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/291156 and come over my main page to see the same submarine in my hands! ;-)

Quoting Mark Kelso Beautiful, Jay! All of the structural work and detailing is terrific. I'm with you on the whole "modular" thing. Experience has taught me to go that route if nothing more than for ease of transportation. But the notion of being able to go back into a finished section (should something fall apart or need adjusting) is a solid one as well, and worth the extra planning. Looking great!
Always a BIG BIG pleasure to have your opinions on my creations, my friend! In fact, the hull is in one big part... But most of the inside and above can be removed to access the compartments. You'll be able to see the interior more than in Titan! ;-)
