Hi
As a new member, as some if you might already have noticed on the introduction page, I felt like posting my latest creation. It was just finished before Lego world in Oslo 1-4. of May this year, and the pictures are from the layout by Brikkelauget (the Norwegian community). I had to finish this creation in a hurry to, so there are some details I would like to modify when I get the time.
You can read about this creation on Mocpages.

I want to add more details on the deck, and more minifigs. I also want to build interior on the bridge.

Then of course there is the harbour....
It was made the day before the exibition, and can have a lot more details.

Wow, a wonderful oil tanker! It even comes with a helicopter landing area and a crane! And I particularly like this information on the tanker: no smoking! *lol*

This is amazing! :wub:

And sooo huge. I´m impressed.
The smaller ship on the second pic looks rather small in contrast to the big one.
Very well done. On first sight I can´t see any object for a change.

That's absolutely amazing, andy16806 :oh: !

That's actually that what I would like TLG to give us (read that) - an oiltanker with an oil refinery! (Of course not in that big and detailed size because only few people would be able to pay that but ...) It's  :wub: :wub: :wub: !

Very, very well done! :thumbup:

A huge and marvelous ship, and already pretty detailed, with an impressive bridge and a solid and well done crane.... perhaps the crane
looks even a little too big.... The color scheme´s also nice. Hmm.... that ship, in a little different color scheme, could also work very
fine for some neat little Waterworld scenery....  :look:  hey, I like that movie!   :grin:

I say, that is a brilliant MOC that is!  :cry_happy:
All the details are amazing! :oh:
And the Esso oil tanks on the port are also really nice.
Good work!

A very fine oiltanker indeed. But I have to confess I´m just a little bit more impressed by the railroad tunnel in the background. That one really looks wonderful!
But that might just be me. I´m gathering inspiration for landscaping at the moment  :tongue:

Superb work. It's good to see you with great attention to detail despite the MOCs impressive size (I particularly like the NO SMOKING sign)!

Hey Andy. Wow! *oh2* This is really amazing. Thanks for sharing it with us. I think when people build big MOCs like this they end up focusing on the overall size and not the details. But, you've done both! I really love the piping on deck. The anchors are very clever and that crane is a work of art in and of itself. Excellent work and welcome to Eurobricks. I can't wait to see more from you. This is an excellent MOC.
