GI Joe USS FLAGG Aircraft carrier

Recommended Posts

Nicely done! Given the size of your creation, in my opinion it would have been better to allocate it as an STOVL aircraft carrier. At least that this was your initial idea, in this case, you did it very well!

Parm, Yeah, it probably would be a STOVL aircraft carrier if they made it today.   

Nom, It does have odd proportions since it is based off a toy version of a somewhat real Aircraft carriers plus LEGO geometry is sometimes not exact.  I thought about and might still make but runway sections 16 studs longer, but i don't know, elements I don't have, etc. 

 TheBreeze, thanks

Considering the toy from Hasbro is like 6 feet long this is not to bad remake (out of LEGO). The S.K.Y.H.A.W.K.(s); Dragonfly and Shark (I believe that is the right name) are pretty nice too. Not to mention the other G.I. Joe things in your Flicker link.

Having played with the plastic toy as a child, let me say well done man! A faithful and masterful recreation in lego of a childhood classic!

I have been building in LDD many G.I.Joe vehicles from pictures I can find and this one is AWESOME! I love the Flagg! I too have been at it for about a year now. I would REALLY like to try and build this!

Hey hey, I have started the build today! This is super great inspiration and scale as my other model is so many pieces! My question, is there any thing below deck in your model? I have set some parameters for mine, there will be a vehicle pool, head, galley and quarters. As stated above, I will still need a sky striker, and have been using geewunners customs as scale for the other models I am building. Thanks again for posting this, I dig it! ( this is a digital build I am doing, the super structure and deck are completed today, say for the crane.)

I really like how this turned out.  Especially since I was considering using a similar size & technique for the lower hull of an amphibious assault ship/escort carrier design for one of my main factions (albeit with just a plain, single flight deck like such ships have), and it looks like this sort of scale would be perfect for that.

You definitely did capture the general proportions of the original GI-Joe toy vis a vis how big it was compared to the action figures.

Thanks, I used to have it, so that helped.

It us empty below deck, at some point I want to build rooms and stuff but who knows when.
