  1. Nice additional member to the family!
  2. Wow! Takao class is a must-build Lego Moc for any big ship builder, and I again understand why. Excellent use of the 2x3 33º inverted slopes. Congratulations!
  3. Congratulations, a very good job. Best regards.
  4. Hi, I like your design, very accurate. Would you try to build a minifig-size type XXI? I warn you, it will be very very big. From another submariner... Best regards.
  5. This is not Lego, this is engineering! Congratulations for your double success (interior and exterior). Best regards.
  6. Hi, the feet didn´t slide, in fact, they even have the structure of the 4483. It was a failure in the "hips" and the AT AT collapsed forward, as I pushed it unintentionally from behind. As the legs are fully poseable, I had to strengthen the articulations (hips-shoulders-knees-elbows) with another set of hinges (as the original 4483, but doubling the hinges). Best regards.
  7. Hi again! Do you have double joints in "shoulders/hips" and "knees/elbows"? Your AT AT seems to be heavier than mine (probably it is, more than 6 kg) and I had a catastrophic accident for using just one joint per articulation. I repeated the scene when the AT AT is shooted down by a snowspeeder in Hoth...
  8. As an owner of another minifig-size AT AT, I congratulate you, you did an excellent job. Best regards.
  9. Hi again. I remodeled the hull because something "was wrong". It now features a bump along the hull, housing inflatable rafts, non-essential equipment, the snorkel tube... You´ll probably notice a few dark-gray tiles on the sail; the 16 short-range SAM missiles are housed there. NEW HULL FULL by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr And a few pics of the torpedo room. 24 weapons, plus 8 in the tubes. This version carries 18 torpedoes, 3 cruise missiles, and 3 SSM missiles. There are 8 more weapons in the tubes (probably 6 torps, 1 CM, and 1 SSM).

  10. Enjoy the beast! I designed two versions on LDD. Version 1, reporting name "cucumber" for the towed array sonar on the upper rudder, a license I took from the Russian Akula and Victor SSN classes. SUBMARINO ENSAMBLADO 3 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr Version 2, reporting name "little cucumber", as the towed array sonar is more realistic and smaller. SUBMARINO ENSAMBLADO 3 SONAR DISTINTO by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr More pics soon, also with the inner parts. Enjoy!
  11. Hi again. Yes, perhaps I like huge MOCs...I hope this is not severe. I hope this pic of the bow is ok for you. Best regards. BOW CUTAWAY by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr
  12. Hi Rotundus, thanks for you comment. I have assembled the last module in LDD (with the pump-jet propulsion system and rudders) and its overall length is about 241-242 studs. The bow was very tricky to design, and I will update the Flickr album for everybody to see how it was build. There was a massive use of angle elements (part designation in LDD) with 135 and 157,5 degrees. Best regards.
  13. Hi Kodan, thanks for your comment and interesting question. My sub will work in a similar way that WW2 US subs (Balaos, Gatos) worked: the diesel engine(s) don´t drive the propellers; just provide electricty for a generator that drives the electric motor AND recharges the batteries while surfaced or snorkelling. German U-boats had a different power plant: each diesel engine crankshaft was connected with a clutch to the electric motor shaft (thus the electric motors acted as dynamos while running on diesel engines) and moving the propeller. Best regards.
  14. Something important is the propulsion. The first sketch for a diesel generator (there will be 3). GENERADOR DIESEL by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr The engines will be connected to an exhaust pipe that will drive the fumes through the snorkel. Enjoy.
