[MOC] Air Battlecruiser

That is awesome!! I love the hull design, the masts and I especially the different turret design and the flight deck/catapults.

Excellent work. Thanks for sharing!!

Very cool. Like the whole thing.
So many details on such a 'small' creation. I also like the color and all those tiny cannons. All those cannons pointing down gives at an ever more a idea of a flying cruiser. Great use of parts, very creative. Also great airplane :classic:
Only the propellers looks a bit small?

This is a work of art. Now I do admit I am biased towards warships and sci fi themed capital ships, but that doesn't change the fact this is an extremely nice build. The flight deck (if that's what it is) at the rear reminds me a bit of those hybrid Japanese battleship/carriers. And the main guns make me think of the ones on the Scharnhorst and Gneisenau battlecruisers. Did you get inspiration from those ships by any chance? Also, the line rigging of the ship and the smaller gun positions really finish this build when it comes to the details. Would love to see more of this in the future! :classic:

A stunning creation. 

And since all ships need a motto, how about "Lego rules the skies"? :grin:

Great work indeed!
The deck colors remind me the WWII Japanese flattop as well.

I'm wondering, how many hours do you have spent for designing/building her?

Love it - very Kongo/Tiger-esque. Are you able to show the internals and how you achieved the hull shaping? How solid is it to hold?

It's hardly to tell the difference between this build and an miniature model! so smooth and detail!

Very nice build! Love how you created the stairs to the decks and all the nice AA-turrets? The rollerskates maxe a nice touch.

I tried bigger ones, it looked too bulky because of bigger pylons.

May be. I just scrolled throught random photos of different battleship and picked random ideas.

About a week.

It's not very solid. I don't build whole internal structure to minimize parts count. However there is a lot of space inside to build a rigid spine. So sides can be fixed.
