Greetings! This is my first post to the historic forum, as I usually build CITY or Misc, and I just wanted to give something older, and larger, a try. This MOC is a representation of a river batteau (Ba-toe), commonly used on the eastern regions of the colonial United States. Batteaux were used to transport goods, primarily tobacco, along the various river routes from plantations. For this particular project, I chose MINILAND Scale. This scale provided more opportunity for detail, as well as a simple solution to a shallow draft, yet wide, base to start on. There are some very unique techniques I wanted to develop for myself, including successfully building 'Studs-In'. The hogshead barrels are built to the appropriate scale using this technique, and can be completely self contained/sturdy without the rubber band, which is simply aesthetics for the steel banding. As this was only my second attempt at building MINILAND figure(s), completing the batteaumen would effectively grow my ML population four-fold and so each one was designed with his own characteristics. The legs, torso, and head are different for each one. Enjoy, and feel free to check out the rest of the album here! And here's a Minifig Scale MOC I did about a year and a half ago:
Hello! Seems I am newbie, Anyway First topic RC lego boats Seems Very interesting, you can do that easy with many kinds of lego Boat Hulls.
