Gotha G.V
About this creation

























About this Moc

This is my lego version of the Gotha G.V WW1 German bomber. First of I would like to say that this moc was actually not that difficult too build.....although the gunners positions took some time too do the rest went very smoothly...and i would say that I probably completed this in under a half hour......another thing i would like too point out is that I think the wing struts could are a little bulky and the engines could be better but other then that it like it and think it came out really well considering what an awkward looking plane this is....You probably also noticed the other biplane in the last picture...basically that’s supposed to be a n "S.E.5" and I will probably upload it sometime today or tomorrow......also check out my BrickShelf page for more pics of this moc...








A Brief History of the Gotha G.V

The Gotha G.V was among Germany's long-range heavy bombers of World War I. This classic airplane took over from the ungainly Zeppelins that had been used previously as bomb platforms over London and other targets. The word 'Gotha' evoked a nervous horror among the English civilian populace in World War I, much like the terms 'V-1' and 'V-2' would during World War II. In both instances, the fear of injury was mixed with an intense frustration that nothing was being done to remedy the situation.

The Gotha bombers evolved from the 1915 G.II and G.III versions that were successful on both the Eastern and Western fronts. These were soon followed by the improved G.IV and G.V aircraft, which were larger and more strongly built. As Raymond Fredette relates in his remarkable book, The Sky on Fire, they carried the brunt of the German attack against England.

Wow man that is one accurate bomber! BTW, about half-way into mine, I did in fact notice your bomber, but I didn't say anything in case someone would call me a copier :S

A good choice for a MOC. Those planes were large, yet fragile and kind of awkward - which is why no one before built one of them, I guess. Nice details, especially the gunner ports. I could never come up with such a bird in less than an hour. Keep 'em coming.

I think out of all the WWI Planes I've seen the Gotha (and this one) is my favorite, I've always liked bombers and biplanes, and this one combines both which is awesome. From what I can remember this looks very accurate, and the Iron Cross details are great. VERY well done!!

Hy David...I was thinking...Would you like to have a Moc-Off with me ( You know, the Moc-offs are small competions beetwen 2 builders that must build something from the same theme, and then the people vote the best one. I sugest that the theme is to build a Coaxial Rotor Helicopter. ( Like the Kamov Ones). Do you accept? Respond by E-mail. Bruno

Cool David, this plane looks great and the size is very impressive! I like how it has three "support bar rows" per wing. I also think it looks very good next to the smaller biplane, which also is very nicely done! Great work! Keep it up! Grüße aus Deutschland, Steffen

Perfect. The construction looks simple but efective. I love Mocs that don´t use Snot or impresive building, but normal pieces and builder ability...May I give a sugestion for building? I really thik you should build a P-38 from WW2. I think it matches with your building style! Bruno

instantly recognisable. very good work, i love the way you built the gunner's cradle up front. too bad you didn't add any bombs, but that's just a minor gripe. keep up the good work!

For a thing built in half an hour, it's pretty good ! Original choice of plane, and the MOC looks very nice.
