This is one of my favourite Lego creations I have ever built. I just love how everything came into place and how everything looks so realistic. The Barracuda is one versatile boat. It has a very powerful mounted machine gun for offense; however that is it's only weapon. It has a large cargo area for storing weapons and accessories of all sorts. An escape boat is also available to the crew of the Barracuda. What are included in the escape boat are twin jets, a control panel and an oar just in case of those rough times. This boat is attached to the Barracuda by a powerful magnet. In order to drop the escape boat in the water, the captain must press the button inside the den. Another thing I love about this boat is the railings. I love how they turned out and I tried to make them as smooth as possible. There is also a fishing net available in case of those long journeys when they run out of food. A ring buoy is also available under the net in case someone is in need of help. A fishing rod is on the boat in order to catch those meddling fish. (Scooby Doo reference if no one got it) There is also a small ladder on the side for the diver to climb down and up from. Going near the back of the ship there is a large anchor because every boat needs an anchor. And who can forget the raw power of the Barracuda. With two power core twin turbo energy jets, this thing flies through the water like a shark after its prey. Or a Barracuda after its prey would make more sense I guess. As well located near the back is the help line, which has a hook attached to it in case the Barracuda has to reel in other ships. And then there is the den that is very spacious. A small table is available for reading or just leaning against. Then the captains den includes the control panel and the luxurious interior surrounded by the angled walls and small slit to look out. I also forgot to mention the portable radio on the back. It attaches to a clip when moving but when the boat lands and the crew depart they take it off to use. I forgot to mention Daniel Jassim who inspired me to do this. After looking at one of his creations, I decided to build a versatile boat and thus the Barracuda was created. I got my machine gun idea from him as well. You have to check this guys stuff out - in fact, all of you probably have already. Another thing I can't stop admiring about this boat is the sleek body. The use of the 2x2 roof pieces (If that is what they are called) that established the body really brought a realistic look to this piece. Another thing that I always forget about is the colour scheme. People use blue and grey, it's SWEET! I forgot to mention the crew of the Barracuda: the captain, his two assistants in lumber jack like clothing, the two henchmen in lifejackets, the two lifeguards/medics and the diver. The underside of the ship, although flat, is very nice and smooth. One more thing, it is the last one, I swear, is the glass on top of the den. I really like how that top panel turned out with the speaker system the two small transmitters and the flashing lights. I don't really know what else to say about it, but if there is anything you think I can add or fix, let me know by just writing a comment or suggestion. Thanks a lot! LEGO LUNATIC

Quoting Nitrosity The CyborgNinja i randomly decided to look at all your mocs just for fun. this is the first one i've looked at so far. the pictures are a little blury, so the detail isn't easy to see. the design is pretty good, and the machine gun design is great. another thing, don't put the whole description at the top of the page and then the pictures underneath. try putting a description under each picture, and personally i like it when people use the large style of posting pictures, thats the one where it makes the picture appear really big. cause then i don't have to click on all the little pictures to see larger ones.
Thanks for the tips and insight man! I really appreciate it! I'm glad you enjoyed my MOCs and I will definitely take your words to heart! Thanks again!
