    R-Type Battleship

    I have built this Battleship from R-Type (Stage3) I constructed it via LegoDigitalDesigner LDD. Made the partlist pdf and ordered via bricklink. Data: construction time = 4months; building time = 1 month; costs = 1500€; parts = about 10000; weight = about 20kg; able to carry per 2 hands; very stable; only one color; mostly build by retro parts; only 140 different parts
  2. Hey folks, this is my first time doing a proper scale model that isn't a train, so I wanted to get some thoughts before progressing. Don't see too many ship models either, so hopefully adding some variety too! Kongo was one of four battlecruiser-turned-fast-battleships that served in the Imperial Japanese Navy in World War I and II. The lead ship of the class, Kongo was built in Britain between 1911 and 1913, upgraded many times throughout her life, and ultimately sunk by torpedo in late 1944. The prototype I am referencing is presumably of the ship as she looked around the time of her sinking: I'd been reluctant to try my hand at a ship because the complex curves of a hull appear to be very difficult to model well, but I've also been playing World of Warships for the past few years, and it's inspired me to try my hand at this. The Kongo is of course The Best Ship in The Game. Worrying about the shape of the hull seems to be unfounded so far... once I decided to build it studs-out, I just traced my drawing in plates and the curvature seems pretty smooth (warning this is a big picture). I've made a first pass at everything above the waterline at this point sans some internal structure. I'm building the upper and lower hull separately such that the ship can hopefully be displayed as a waterline model or as a complete model depending on the setting: Overall, most of the features of the ship are probably slightly too tall, but I'm generally pretty happy with the result so far. Any thoughts are appreciated!
  3. Hello, I am interested in building a 1/144 scale battleship. Does anyone have plans for your boats or a resource I could use to help myself make a 1/144 scale battleship? I can get blueprints and ship plans for the SS Suffren. This is the battleship I would like to build. I'd love to look at blueprints and any plans ya'll have for building boats so I can try my hand at it. I'll be honest, I haven't built MOC in years.... Like 15. I've built with plans and even eyeball like a puzzle with my daughters. Some of this is my own rekindled passion after taking the girls to legoland and getting them some sets to build. They like to build and marvel. That's fine by me. I did that some myself. Eventually, all my sets became part of the melting pot until my lot was sold. I don't know what it would cost to get a decent set of bricks to try and build an MOC. I went ahead and downloaded LDD to try and get started. I'm curious how well I can do with it. I'm also curious how I can go from a LDD model to purchasing bricks so I can display this like I would want to do. My end game is to build it and sink it in my aquarium to enjoy as a massive ornament. Is it possible to get plans for the pirate ships at the lego scale model exhibit? Those were awesome! The blueprint shows the full hull. The top is water line up from the side and the bottom is in action renamed in 1944. I don't think this ship class was ever bedazzled but if anyone has experience with dazzling or can offer to the idea for an MOC, I'm all ears.

    USS OGEL @ Brick-a-laide

    It's been a while since I've been posting on here, so I thought I'd show one of my latest builds, the USS OGEL. The images are from it's latest 'patrol' at Brick-a-laide in Adelaide, South Australia. Some information about the real ship:- Based on the United States Navy Alaska Class Battlecruisers The Alaska class consisted of six large cruisers ordered before World War II for the United States Navy. They were officially classed as large cruisers (CB), but others have regarded them as battlecruisers. They were all named after territories or insular areas of the United States, signifying their intermediate status between larger battleships and smaller heavy and lighter cruisers. Of the six planned, two were completed, the third's construction was suspended on 16 April 1947, and the last three were canceled. Alaska and Guam served with the U.S. Navy for the last year of World War II as bombardment ships and fast carrier escorts. They were decommissioned in 1947 after spending only 32 and 29 months in service, respectively. The idea for a large cruiser class originated in the early 1930s when the U.S. Navy sought to counter Deutschland-class "pocket battleships" being launched by Germany. Planning for ships that eventually evolved into the Alaska class began in the late 1930s after the deployment of Germany's Scharnhorst-class battleships and rumors that Japan was constructing a new battlecruiser class. To serve as "cruiser-killers" capable of seeking out and destroying these post-Treaty heavy cruisers, the class was given large guns of a new and expensive design, limited armor protection against 12-inch shells, and machinery capable of speeds of about 31–33 knots (36–38 mph, 58–61 km/h). Class & type: Alaska-class large cruiser Displacement: Standard: 29,779 long tons (30,257 t) Full load: 34,253 long tons (34,803 t) Length: 808 ft 6 in (246.4 m) Beam: 91 ft 1 in (27.8 m) Draft: 31 ft 10 in (9.7 m) Installed power: 153,000 shaft horsepower (114,000 kW) Propulsion: General Electric steam turbines 8 Babcock & Wilcox boilers 4 shafts Speed: 33 knots (61 km/h; 38 mph) Range: 12,000 nautical miles (22,000 km; 14,000 mi) at 15 knots (28 km/h; 17 mph) Crew: 1,517 Armament: 9 × 12-inch/50 caliber (305 mm), 12 × 5 in (127 mm) guns, 56 × 40 mm (1.6 in) guns, 34 × 20 mm (0.79 in) guns Armor: Belt: 9 in (229 mm) Turrets: 12.8 in (325 mm) Deck: 4 in (102 mm) Aircraft carried: 4 More images available at -

    Battleship Bismarck and more...

    After watching James Cameron's documentary on the underwater expedition to the wreck of the battleship Bismarck and a few other documentaries on World War 2 naval warfare, I wanted to build some of the warships of that period with Lego. I decided to build these models in scale to each other and in a size resembling common model kits of such ships - small enough to be a challenge to build with Legos, yet large enough to allow for detail and characteristic shapes and features. Since I never built ships with Legos, I searched the net for examples of World War 2 warships built with Legos at the size I had in mind. My first build, the Bismarck, was at first a reverse-engineered build based completely on the MOC Operation Rheinübung by Locutus 666, which you can find here: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/377978 I especially liked the accuracy of the complex superstructure, which was fun to re-create and taught me a few neat building-techniques for achieving lots of detail at this 'small' scale. When I was done, however, further research into the short but dramatic history of this battleship led me to improve quite a few things. First of all, I wasn't very pleased with the hull, and built a completely new one using SNOT and stacked plates and tiles to achieve a correct shape, size, and the characteristic wooden planks on the armoured main deck. I also changed some details on and added a few more to the superstructure to make it more accurate. For instance, the funnel is much more accurate now. The changes I made which are readily apparent deal with the colouring. I chose to build the model according to the paint job the battleship actually wore during Operation Rheinübung. The Swastika inside the red banner on the bow and stern sections of the main deck have been painted over with grey, as were the black and white stripes on the side of the hull. The Bismarck only retained its white fake waves on the sides of the bow. The masts and radar installations had been painted a very dark grey which almost appeared black. Also, the funnel top was silver throughout the Bismarck's lifetime. The dark red parts resembling the boats are a bit of an artistic choice. The real boats had dark red-brownish elements, yet were mostly a light grey, but in order to make them stand out and not have them look like some other part of the superstructure, I chose to use dark red pieces for them. Here's how my model looks: Since building this model was fun and I'm very pleased with the result, I decided to have a go at another ship, this time of another type and with its construction stopped after the Bismarck was destroyed. It's the german aircraft carrier Graf Zeppelin, the first ship of this type in the german Kriegsmarine. The most notable feature of this ship were it's two steam-powered catapults, at the time said to be by far the strongest to be found on any aircraft carrier. Since the real thing was never finished and we will therefore never know how the superstructure and armament would have finally looked, I chose to base my model on detailed drawings by the U.S. naval intelligence from that period. Note that the armoured flight deck would most likely have been covered with wooden planks, but I went for a grey finish with a few markings to indicate the two lifts, the catapults and the rear edge of the flight deck. Here's the model: Last, but not least, I built a smaller support vehicle, namely a 1936B-Type Destroyer. Here it is: What better way to end this post than with a photograph of the whole tiny flotilla? Here it is. As for scale, the Bismarck is almost 46 cm long, and the Graf Zeppelin is 47 cm long. It's quite possible that I will build more ships from that period, maybe the german pocket battleship Graf Spee, or one of the fast battlecruiser of the Scharnhorst-class. The Mighty Hood (HMS Hood) is a great candidate to be turned into a model as well. Wheteher you like or dislike what you see, have suggestions, ideas, or something interesting to add, please comment!
  6. Lord Sam Sinister is in a evil partnership with Lord Ogel, dictator of the industrial country of Vladeck. They are currently (as of January 1925) scouring the world for an artifact named Poseidon's Trident, with the latest lead having them head for the southern tip of South America. Sam is accompanied by his personal battleship named "Sinister Purpose", two diesel-powered submarines, a new series of stealth aircraft and a small battalion of troops and land vehicles. He also has all his underworld contacts, including but not limited to: Senor Palomar, Alexis Sinister, Barron Von Baron, Max Villano, and more, ready to help him with his quest. Lord Sam's mission is to find the Trident and with it, help Ogel conquer the seas (and the world). His only real opposition is Johnny Thunder and his friends Major Quentin Steele, Jake Raines, & Pippin Reed, plus their small fleet of vehicles. This is Sam Sinister's personal battleship, the "Sinister Purpose". It features two anchors, three smokestacks, and four turrets. I have given the turrets the ability to move the triple-gun barrels up and down and swivel side to side. (In the real world, this battleship was originally designed for my brother, Austin, who later discarded the project.) Here is one of the two identical submarines used by Lord Sinister and his forces. This one is named the "Red Fox", while the other is named the "Black Wolf". (In reality, this submarine was gotten from Brickshelf back around 2011. I don't remember who did it, but it is Studs Not On Top, also known as SNOT, for 90% of the build.) Here is the LDD file for both submarine and battleship: http://www.mocpages.com/user_images/80135/1426187247m.lxf This prototype stealth aircraft is nicknamed "The Stalker" for it's ability to creep up on a target and follow without being noticed, before it blows the enemy craft into oblivion. (When Indiana Jones set 7683's (Fight on the Flying Wing) pictures was first leaked in dark grays, I was impressed... but then they went and changed it to dark green in the final, released version. Well, now I changed it back! I removed the unavailable parts, turned the regular green and dark green to light and Dark bluish gray. The cockpit is no longer hinged, making it much stronger, plus the rear guns no longer swivel, eliminating that weak point. The cockpit is supposed to be the Star Wars Jedi star fighter dark-bluish gray-print-on -transparent-black part) The fleet of vehicles at Sam Sinister's disposal includes two dozen fighter aircraft. These fighters are not as advanced as the flying wing above, but still can hold their own against almost anything thrown at them. (This model was originally set 6745. (Propeller power) I turned into that micro scale model into a plane that a mini-figure can sit in. it was turned from red, white, and yellow into a slew of military-looking grayish hues.) LDD file for the aircraft here: http://www.mocpages.com/user_images/80135/1426185143m.lxf This fearsome piece of machinery is used to cut down trees in the path of the land forces. It is currently being heavily used in South America as the search for the Poseidon's Trident grinds on in the Amazon Jungle. (I bought the original set 7626 (Jungle Cutter) in Summer 2008. I wanted to make it it in dark gray to match my two trucks but gave up after trying to order the parts from Lego. (I didn't know about Bricklink at that time) Well, now the shoe is on other other foot and here it is, in full grayish glory!) Here is a fuel supply truck of the convoy currently running back and forth from the battleship Sinister Purpose to the head of the group pushing further inland. These trucks are the weak point of Sinister's forces. Destroy them, you halt the progress towards the Trident. (This model is almost a stock part of 7683. (Fight on the Flying Wing) I simply redid the rear tank to keep it from spinning.) These trucks may be empty now, but usually they are filled with troops protecting the convoy searching for the Trident. (These are made from 7622. (Race for the Stolen Treasure) Since the fabric part is so VERY expensive, I found a solution in the Eurobricks Official sets LDD topic. I took the cover from the trucks built by user ADHO15 and redid some portions to be cheaper (I.E. thinner tires) and better coordinated color-wise.) This vehicle is one of many used by the forces of Evil to search for Poseidon's Trident. This particular car usually holds an officer of the Vladeck Armed forces, Special Recovery Division, which looks to capture objects of power through less-than-legal means. (The car seen here was originally part of set 7622, Race for the Stolen Treasure, as the machine gun hauling support vehicle. I have put a roof on it and turned it into a officer's car.) Here is the LDD file for the land vehicles: http://www.mocpages.com/user_images/80135/1426185434m.lxf Johnny Thunder will need to bring his A-game to stop Sam Sinister this time. Comments, questions, and complaints welcome!

    Lego Ideas reject Sci Fi

    Hello all, I have recently uploaded to Lego Ideas my MoC of HMS Thunderchild vs a Martian fighting machine. It has been rejected three times now, I had tried to tone down the warfare, violence side of things but to no avail. I have got the standard Does not fit Lego Themes cut and paste - but for the life of me cannot work out what their issue was. There are other MoCs for war of the worlds including a far more violent cylinder vignette with burning Lego Minifigs. There are other warships -HMS Beagle is doing a great trade at the mo. Cannons and guns are features of many pirate, space and franchise MoCs. I'm stumped? https://www.facebook...866078816786527 is my Facebook page for the MoC. Cheers Derfel
  8. Well, as I have many Duplos at home (I got a 2 yo kid which is a Lego enthusiast), when I want to "physically" build something, I use those, instead of LDD. Of course, the size and colors of the bricks tend to limit the results, but Duplo can also be useful to build something nice. These are starships I made for my little kid, and he enjoyed playing with them at least as much as I enjoyed building them (and it was much!). Frigate Cruiser Carrier/Battleship Does anyone else build something with Duplos for their toddlers?

    Custom Kre-O Decals

    After a discussion with LuxorV and Dr Leg O'Brick, We came to a conclusion that Community was the best place to put this thread. Here Kre-O decals will be produced so that you can customize your Kreons to your heart's content. Kre-O themes are as followed Star Trek Transformers G.I Joe Battleship Dungeons and Dragons Cityville Invasion Decals will be made from that list of themes. Here are some I made earlier General Trelane (Retired) Harry Mudd These decals were inspired by Star Trek: The Original Series Kre-O decals are the same size as Lego decals at width, but are slightly shorter at the length I look forward to seeing what you can come up with, - END OF LINE -

    [MOC]Blacktron starship fleet

    Têta Fleet of the Alki's Corp. have an opponent in the Legoxie : the Blacktron Fleet. The technology of these starships is old in comparison with the Alki's Corp one, but his firepower is great. So is experienced the crew of the ships. The main ship is the battleship with many gun, in particulary 3 triple turrets guns. 2 cruisers with a smaller firepower but greater mobility surrond it. 2 fighters and a "beetle" complete the Fleet. =>Yamatorax battleship: => 2 Blacktron cruisers => 2 fighters assits the fleet
  11. Before I start, here is some background info: I got the LDD files for these ships back in 2011 from my Brother. He didn't built them, and can't remember where he got them. I have since remade the battleship three times and the sub twice. Here is HMS Timberwolf (the battleship )and the HMS Gray Ghost. (the submarine) The battleship features four guns and a two smokestacks, while the submarine has two propellers and is almost 100% built sideways. ...and yes, the guns do rotate! This symbol goes on the battleship on a flagpole. This one goes on the submarine. The wolves from Legends of Chima are going to run these ships. Wakz will be the venerable Captain of the Battleship. (known as the Timberwolf) While Winzar is the slightly unhinged captain of the submarine. (called the Gray Ghost) This fleet will be called the Wolfpack... and no, this isn't the entire fleet! (By the way: These last four pictures are from Bricklink!) LDD file for all that is in the main pic: http://www.mocpages....1395667879m.lxf Comments, Questions, & Critics welcome!
