I would humbly suggest taking a look at a project I have been working on for way too long. This is a full minifig scale RMS Titanic, the dimensions being over 31 feet long, over three and a half feet wide, and eventually over seven feet tall including masts and funnel height. Without including masts, the model would be almost five feet tall.
My ultimate goal is to have each room, door, porthole, stairs, etc. included. I am not too focused on incredible detail, though many of the smaller things do find their way into it. Also, each deck will be able to be lifted off to see inside, though there won't be much in the way of interiors. Check it out at http://mocpages.com/moc.php/289808.
I began this a long time ago after watching some videos on youtube of people trying to make a Lego Titanic, and I decided to try and do a better job of what was commonly done. They were usually too small, and were obviously exhausting a person's collection with the variety of colors that showed up. I wanted something as full scale as possible. I also have dreams that if I was ever to make this in real life, that it would include lighting along the passages, working elevators, smoke machines under the first three funnels (as last was a dummy and extra vent), the reciprocating and electric engines working and turning the props, maybe even the rudder working too.
Current order of activity as of 09/30/12:
- 1. Finish B Deck (Walls built and floor completed)
- 2. C Deck: finish the wall outline, etc.
- 3. D Deck: get to it!
- 4. E Deck: get to it!
- 5. F Deck: get to it!
- Orlop Top (G): get to it!
- 6: Orlop Bottom (H): get to it!
- 7: Bilge and Keel: yes, getting to it!
The curve of the hull is going to be a bugger to do, especially so considering that each deck is done separately. The brick count would be too much for my computer to handle if this was all in one model. I love MLCad for this, as I get to have so much versatility in model making, not to mention a lack of a part limit like in LDD.
Thanks and remember to like!
