The Aquashark returns, a remake of an old design (link).
I'm currently in a submarine (submersible) phase.
(I still need supporters for my Cuusoo submarine project and I'll keep making submarines just to promote this project ;)). (This one is at Cuusoo as well).
The Aquashark is a one-person submersible constructed for destroying larger seacraft. It's armament compromises two mini torpedoes and a double harpoon cannon for penetrating the hull of enemy ships.
The Aquashark's autonomity is restricted, it depends on a larger seacraft or a base for refueling and maintenance.
Because of it's small size and material it is constructed from it can easely slip through enemy radar. Because of its shape it can even fool visual by pretending to be a shark.
This is the prototype, the variant to be used for action would be painted in more appropriate colors (black and white) to enhance its invisibility underwater.
But frankly I like it better in yellow.
It might not look like it but compared to the old design it has improved pretty much, the gills are now smoothly incorporated in the flanks, the tail is more streamlined and the tailfin has a better shape.
It's also fitted with a proper 'mouth' (which is made from a car spoiler by the way).
I think the only flaw it still has is the black hingeplate on the tail, if I could just find a yellow one that would look so much better.
There's not much space in the interior but still enough for a minifigure to fit in, one could even have a helmet or hairpiece if I would remove the tiles on the seat.
I envision it to be stationed in a secret underwater base with the objective to intercept and destroy all unauthorized submarines passing by or as a defense unit.
It still has the nose hatch, It used to house a laser cutter but it could as well be used as a storage compartiment (for maybe smuggling some goods).
you blow the lego version out of the water! very cool shape and color, one day, I ll try for one, I might go for transparent canopy in the front, but, I m sure it will prove to be difficult improving on yours.
This is hard where to start? First yours is way better than the original and more professional and better color choice! Next what do I like more the SHARK SUB or the LOADING DOCK? Seabus I am making you one of my favorites right after this get posted! Then I will check out the instructions!
