    Torpedo Wagon

    Hi everyone, waiting to release the my next locomotive I've taken a break to make a replica of this fascinating wagon found on Lego Ideas (Torpedo Wagon by Stephanix): the torpedo wagon. A torpedo wagon is one of the largest and heaviest cargo wagons in the world (and It is definitely my longest car ); it is used to transport hot liquid iron to the foundry where the liquid iron is poured in to molds. The torpedo wagon has a load capacity of 160 ton ...and I simply love this lego model! Inside the cabin I've inserted a mechanism with a worm gear to tilt the torpedo See you soon...
  2. Grid D10 (STUDICA) – Q10 (WORLD) The Italian Regia Marina (Italian Navy of WW2) developed the use of combat divers. One of the most iconic vehicles was the Maiale (“pig” in Italian), whose name was “Siluro a Lenta Corsa” (slow speed torpedo). Three of these vehicles attacked the Royal Navy in Alexandria (Egypt) and 4 Britsh ships (2 battleships) were damaged. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/c/cb/Maiale_SLC.jpg/1024px-Maiale_SLC.jpg[/img] As an evolution of this vehicle, the Erotema Navy has developed an advanced version. It can carry three limpet mines on the bottom (2x2 round plates) and some tools on the bow. Its cruise speed is 10 knots and has a range of 30 miles at that speed. This vehicle is part of a detachment that will strike a Xenor site that is suspect to hold WMD. Enjoy the build!

  3. Hi people! Maybe some of you know me of the Star Wars forum. I am the proud builder of one of the UCS minifig AT-ATs and the Imperial Base, but I wanted to change and build something different. And after the Alebricks 2016 Lego Event I decided to build a minifig size submarine. I took inspiration on the S80 class under construction by Navantia, but I wanted it larger and more powerful. This is what I have by far...only the bow, the first module, and the sail. I don´t know when I will finish it, but I would like to build it with bricks for Christmas. The sub will hold 40 minifigs (32 for crew and 8 for a SpecOps unit)(like in the soon-to-be-built S81 for the Spanish Navy), 8 tubes (6 in the "real" S80), with an estimated length of 220 studs (approx). The design has been tricky, but it looks good. The real LEGO model will have detachable panels, so the inner rooms (control room, quarters, halls...) may be seen. I hope you enjoy it, and questions are welcome! Of course it must be finished and more detailed, but it´s promising SUBMARINO ENSAMBLADO 2 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr
  4. S901 Triana was christened a few days ago, and after the training in the submarine simulators and other submarine units of the Navy, the first patrol was to begin. The crew was either inside the sub preparing it to sail ASAP or loading the last supplies, and only a representation was ready to be inspected by the Admiral Chief of the Navy. FOTO1 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr FOTO2 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr FOTO3 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr The Admiral Chief of the Navy arrived in a vehicle and was saluted by Captain RAMIREZ ARELLANO, who reported about the readiness of ship and crew. FOTO4 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr FOTO5 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr FOTO7 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr The Admiral lets the Captain give a speech: “Little ducks, there is problem in the world. The Republic of Nations has started a war and they are threatening our existence and our COAC allies´. They started, but we will make them stop. We have the most powerful killing machine ever devised by the man. We are capable of delivering more firepower than has ever seen before. And victory shall be ours, with the help of God.” “Chief of the Boat, are you aware of the name of this boat?” “Very aware, Sir!” “It bears a proud name, doesn't it, Mr. Cob?” “Very proud, Sir!” “It represents fine people” “Very fine people, Sir!” “Who live in an outstanding neighborhood” “Outstanding, Sir!” “In a beautiful city” “Beautiful, Sir!” “Which is in the greatest country in the entire world” “In the entire world, Sir” “And what is that name, Mr. Cob?” “TRIANA, Sir” “And what do we say? “HAIL TRIANA!” “Dismiss the crew Mr. Cob!” “Aye, aye, Sir! Fall out!” FOTO6 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr The Captain is named after Captain Marion Frederic Ramirez de Arellano, who was the first US Navy Submarine Commanding Officer with Spanish origins (his family was from the former Spanish Province of Puerto Rico).
  5. After the events depicted on [GBW] - Troop build up - Erotema - Submarine Assembly Plant the first unit of the S90-class diesel attack submarine is to be christened. What does this mean? Normally, whenever a marine unit is ready to enter service, she (I will never understand why vessels are feminine in English) is given a name and someone very important for her own country breaks a bottle of champagne on her hull. In this case, the first unit of the S90 class will be named S901 TRIANA. The namesake comes from Rodrigo de Triana, the lookout who first spotted the American continent on 12 October 1492. It is also one of the most typical neighborhoods in Seville, Spain. “Good morning, this is Antony Stone reporting live from Erotema Shipyards, where the new submarine of our Navy, Triana, is to be christened in the following minutes.” 1 START PRESS by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr “We are close to the catering for the subsequent finger food lunch that will take place after the christening”. 2 CATERING by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr “The authorities today are the following: Mr. Blas Gálvez, President of Erotema. Bishop Marcellus Breadwine, top military priest. Miss. Marifé Gálvez, Miss Erotema 2017 and daughter of President Gálvez. Top Navy officers and the future Captain of S901 TRIANA”. 3 AUTHORITIES by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr “We listen now the anthem of Erotema being played by a small group of…MARIACHIS??? WTF!!! Well, our studios on Erotema city report that as all the available personnel is engaged in the war, the Navy had to hire the services of a mariachi band on tour on Erotema”. 4 ORCHESTRA by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr Overall view of the event. 5 OVERALL VIEW by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr Detail of the Navy Insignia, inspired on that of the Spanish Navy. 6 NAVY INSIGNIA by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr Detail of the submarine sail and the flag of Erotema. From left to right (bow to stern), attack periscope, observation periscope, 16-cell SAM VLS, snorkel, radio antenna, radar. 7 TOWER DETAIL by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr Overall view of the submarine in all her length. INSTAGRAM1 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr Main features: Length 241 studs, about 81 metres. Beam: 22,7 studs (aprox), about 7,6 metres. Armament: 8 650 mm torpedo tubes. Up to 32 torpedoes or missiles (cruise missiles too) plus 4 mines. Each torpedo or missile can be replaced by 2 mines. 16-cell SAM VLS. Crew: 32 + 8 passengers (specops units, training personnel, etc). This submarine has 3 diesel generators and 1 electric motor driving a pump jet, which makes her even more silent than current diesel submarines (of course, more silent than nuclear subs). Its AIP plant extends her underwater endurance for about 30 days without surfacing.
  6. Map location: Grid C4 in Studica, P6 world. At Erotema Shipyards, the assembly of the first S90 class submarine (to be christened yet) is finishing. STERN MODULE WITH RUDDERS AND PUMP JET by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr President Gálvez went there to take a final look of the manufacturing process. He speaks with the Fleet Admiral... PRESIDENT BLAS GÁLVEZ AND FLEET ADMIRAL by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr "-When will the sub be ready to support our Army and allies? Soon things may go very harsh. No problem President, the sub will be ready to be christened and ready to sail in 6 weeks. Ok. What about the S100 model? It´s on inception. Good." The S90 moves using a pump jet, so it is very silent. TAIL AND PUMP JET by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr The President and Fleet Admiral visit several parts of the factory to see how the work is going on MODULE ALMOST FINISHED by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr MODULE ALMOST FINISHED 2 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en FlickrMODULE ALMOST FINISHED 3 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr And he sees a scale model of the completed submarine and a sample of the weapons carried. SCALE MODEL AND HEAVY WEAPONS by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr "President, this is what our submarine can carry. The black cylinders close to us are naval mines, with them we can block any enemy port or naval route. Next, the cruise missiles, with a range of 2500 km. Its conventional warhead is very powerful and its CEP is less than 10 meters. The dark gray torpedo is an excellent weapon against ships or submarines. It has a double homing system with optic fiber and acoustic sensors, with a range of 50 km and 50 knots of top speed. To conclude, the SSM, with a range of 150 km and able to strike both ships or land targets. Besides, the sub will carry SAM in a VLS in the sail to have short range AAA capability against ASW helicopters." The submarine is a real build I began at the beginning of 2017 after making a 12000+ part LDD. I posted a few pictures of several real lego-built modules, but the pics displayed here with the wall and floor were taken a few hours ago. Enjoy!
  7. Hello Everybody! My latest creation of which I am very keen! Loved to build it, including the design, color scheme and it's functions/features. Initially build for this amazing book "The Art of LEGO Scale Modeling" in which is fully "shiny". Yes, a lot of chrome parts are used to make it even more impressive. For a guy who lives in the Netherlands for whole of his live it took quite a while to get started with a "Euro" truck Well, here it is! Well, I am curious what it is that you think of this MOC, please share it... Would you be interested to build it yourself? Well that's possible. I have building instructions and inventory/parts list are available . Early in the building process you will see what it is that you are building. You will be very excited from the moment you start the build of "Truck T13" till you finish it with about 420 different parts totaling 2790 pieces. The truck features: solid axle suspension on all axles of which the rear axle uses tandem bogie suspension, PF powered driving with power transmitted independently to both rear axles, Ackerman geometry on steering axle, Servo powered steering, fully functional fifth wheel, fifth wheel slider, detailed engine bay, modeled Scania V8 engine, detailed cabin interior and 3 light units. Scale: 1:17,5 Length: 444 mm Weight: 2,21kg Parts: 2790 The Scania 3 series is the third generation truck model range introduced by Scania, which we all know is Swedish truck manufacturer. Obviously it is the successor of the 2 series and was introduced back in 1987. With the release of the 4 series in 1997 production of the 3 series stopped after being produced for roughly a decade. Given the fact it has a hood or bonnet, so it is not a COE (cab over engine) truck, it is referred to as a torpedo. For this the manufacturer gave it a prefix as well, a T. At that time the 3 series T came in a range of different engine sizes and horsepower. Starting with a 9.0 liter engine with 230 horsepower all the way up to a massive 14 liter V8 engine with 500 horsepower. Being available with either a 9, 11, or 14 liter engine truck models were denoted 93, 113, or 143. To indicate the rating of the frame and suspension stiffness a letter suffix is used. Rated with an M indicates this model has a „medium” frame and suspension setup. Other suffices used by Scania are H for „heavy” and E for „extra-heavy”.
