    Finished MOC Fairplay IX tugboat in scale 1:50

    really beautiful model,faultless to a degree.i will be studying this build for a long time,great use of building techniques,your build thread is really helpful for others to see, and you got the black fendering just about right really enhances the shape of the hull, look forward to the next one

    thats a real credit to you Edwin,now to study your pics and be able to learn from them,for such a small build that is some amount of pieces but given the detail and the pieces you have used its hardly surprising.the lights add the finishing touch,a few pics of the way you did the wheelhouse would be great.hope to use some of your techniques on my build (semi sub heavy lift ship)15ft x 3ft again amazing build look forward to your next one

    one thing for sure your model is perfect. instantly recognizable to the real thing, to put a green and red light would prob spoil it so i think you have it right.prob one of your best i always find builds improve everytime i build always better techniques as you progress.especially seeing how others build

    not sure but on a closer look at the navigation lights they appear to be doubled up on either side (presume it depends on the direction its steaming) like you say most of the time its going backwards LOL.strange the exhausts are at the front limiting visibility,

    i assumed the bow is the higher part but looking through the thread you can not be sure which is bow or stern so i maybe wrong,LOL.

    the red and green navigation lights are on the wrong side RED portside (left) GREEN starboard side (right) truly outstanding considering detail considering the size and scale,love to see the WIP on builds,i can learn so much

    outstanding work there Edwin,love the lights the way you have them incorporated into the superstructure,what scale are you building this it does look minifig,so many uses of pieces i had never thought uses for.keep the pics coming cheers Jim

    much better,your building is just amazing,everytime i study your builds and Konajara i learn something.have yet to attempt a build with that kind of hull rendering,mostly modular style (USS Missouri/R Y Britannia) but i,m getting there. thanks for showing the builds

    outstanding work as always,i just love to see your progress on shipbuilding,just a thought as your way superior to my building but the black fender running fore and aft would look better the same height as the topmost stern fender more in keeping with the deck line, if that makes sense to you.the shape of the deck rising up as you go forward makes for a very hard process ,your pics showing the techniques used are most helpful,i hope to improve my building studying yours cheers Jim
  10. what is it with folk on here defending LEGO as its simply building blocks like cars etc it was started by one and everyone copied it,we dont have a problem with that Lego is just the same,Does anyone on here own or manage Lego etc.IT SHOULD BE ABOUT THE CREATIONS YOU MAKE not this crap about ripping clone bricks to shreds etc. I dont have a problem with any brand of building block,the cheaper the better so I can build and not have to break my models up but because of the price I can afford to keep buying more. I joined this site to look and learn on how to improve my building techniques NOT to be judged on my choice of bricks.now to the REALISTs here I had 10,000 Lego branded pieces which were pure crap,would not stay together kept falling apart so their product is of no better quality than some ofthese cheap chinese knock offs

    USS Saratoga

    well just to answer your questions here, when i was asked to display the Missouri I did point out it was not built entirely out of lego,but other makes of of blocks were used,as far as the press were concerned it did not matter as with everyones concept of this is its all classed as lego,(just a term that seems used for every ABS building bricks) unlike MR Mellows (whats your problem) here and maybe a few others i dont have shares in lego named brands i just like building with them, but enough is enough with this childish attitude so this will be my last post on here,i will not post anymore builds or the progress with this one which will be finished with whatever building blocks i find most suitable, to quote Vinny Jones *its been emotional*

    When is Lego not Lego?

    just out of interest does anyone regard S-BRICK as a lego clone and refuse to use it with lego, i joined this forum to look at amazing builds/techniques etc not to be criticised for what bricks is used.in my MOCs, not sure if this is the right place for this post,but i will make it my last !!!!!!

    USS Saratoga

    you know i get this so much,it gets really annoying after a while,if it was ready made pieces i can understand but when its standard pieces 2x4 2x2 2x1 etc flat plates etc,i fail to see the big deal folk make out of clone brick/megabloks etc. but to answer as accuratley as possible 90 % is prob megabloks the rest would be lego technic pieces,tiles,pins connectors,the airplane is mostly lego, now let ma ask WOULD THIS LOOK ANY DIFFERENT IF IT WAS PURE LEGO ??? just to add on the last pic theres 20,000 trans blue round 1x1s so that evens it up a bit

    USS Saratoga

    started this last year,not long after the Missouri was featured in the media planned to be around 26 1/2 ft long same scale as the Missouri but run out of room building it,as usual it will be the last modernized version when it had all the AA guns more armour etc endless amount of flat pieces here,i even had to buy a few 1000 lego plates to mix in,you dont really notice them, Grumman Avenger on the flightdeck,working folding wings there will be winches inside for the anchorswith room at a premuim it was left outside and a gale of wind caught hold of it one night had to rebuild it all over again, roughly 10 ft of it is completed now.and 2 aircraft so far,a fair way to go but now its winter can get more done on it again
