MA/13 Will it float? . . Team: Team i Brick Contest Page: 2013 MocAthalon Category 21. Will It Float? Several years ago, Dave Kaleta challenged his students to build floating creations. http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/195480 Now, the challenge is passed on to you. Build the biggest and/or best looking floating creation you can manage. You must provide a picture of the object maintaining position above the water line, aka floating. My biggest challenges for this was to get it to float where I wanted it to, and be able to enclose the majority of the vessel. Darkeye (The third Batman) creeps onto the top of the mysterious floating vessel miles out from Gotham City. He sees the back of a strange man who seems to be wearing some sort of machine to protect his head........ Before we continue with the story, let's look at the whole thing floating! Yeah, it's hard to see, but it is definitely floating. I used tires to make this massive vessel float! Don't worry, there are more floating pictures :) Here it is out of the water for a bit to get better pictures. You'll see that there are two stacked tires at the back, that is where the most weight is, so I needed more tires there to get it to float the right way. You'll see what I mean by that in a minute. The roof was taken off for the rest of these pictures. The roof is just the two flaps folded inwards and then attached to the dark blue supports via seed elements. then a flat plate is put across the overlapping flaps to finish the roof. Here is what was taken off so that you can see inside better. Here is what it looks like from underneath the surface. For some of the following pictures, I added some blue seed elements to the water so you can get a feel for where it's floating. It floats at just the right height so that when you open the purple flap, a minifigure can go diving and still have the rest of the ship dry except for the two corners in the front where you can get your feet wet :) It all started on his last diving mission. Dr. Collars recently discovered a possible element that would be able to do much good for the world. Right when he thought he spotted a cave where he thought the special element would be, something exploded above him. A giant rock was falling towards him. He tried to get away, but alas, it struck him and made him sank to dangerously deep depths, much to hard on the human body because of the immense pressure. However, his team above heard the explosion and went down after him. Thankfully, he lived. Unfortunately, now he has to wear this machine that super pressurizes his head, much like the pressure experienced when too deep in water. Despite warnings to go diving again, Dr. Collars built an oddly shaped vessel that had unique diving luxuries, and headed off, never to be seen again.....until now. What has he been doing all this time? What's this? A special suit? What does it do? You won't escape Darkeye! Muahahah! Thanks for looking, God bless! David the Fire Ninja Jedi
