A buddy and I have been working on these boats for a couple months now, even made dry docks to build them in.
This is still a WIP of Vangeist and Jester63. So please check back in for updates and thanks for those comments :smile.gif:
Update! 5/2/11Just some pics with the new texture pack and a rough shot of the planned harbor.
The smaller one is the uss arizona. We thought it would be rite to put them together in all their glory. They are both 1/1 scale each block measuring 1 meter squared roughly for the majority of the deck and hull, since that would be quite hard to do for all the guns and superstructure with the limited type of blocks, we just eyed up alot of that. Also the arizona is still missing quite a bit in this shot. So if interest is high i will post more pics :smile.gif:
The the decks and control rooms are there, but we havent yet gone through and put in crew and captains quarters, there arent too many resources to get that perfect so we'll probly end up doin it best guess.
As far as the process? We look up the length width and heights of each ship and then lay those 3 lines down, then build a rough deck from lots of resource pics. Then we work on the hull, start workin on the big turrets and then deck by deck, it starts to take shape. Then we work on towers and all those minor details, planes etc. We really enjoy it. :smile.gif:
Hello all! I am new to this forum. I am vangeists partner in these enormous builds. I just want to thank you all for your comments and interest. We chose the Missouri, because, what better WWII era ship could you build! We have many more in plan for the future including an aircraft carrier! That should be an interesting build, since the planes are just so easy to make look right...............lol.
I am curious, though, as to if any of you have any ships you would like to see built. We are open to suggestions, and the challenge! Just let us know if you all have any ideas. Keep watching, as we have many future projects in the works!
Hey, konata. Yea, someone did actually build the bismarck. If you haven't yet, you should definitely check it out. It is a very good build! Very impressive. We plan to build a bismarck of our own. Not sure how soon we will get to it, but we definitely will!
There is also a titanic! That thing is very detailed! The guy even made a cross-section of it!
No need to fight guys, no big deal. If you need help finding any other builds, just let us know. Trust me, I know sometimes in can be very hard to find specific things sometimes. We are all on this forum to help each other and give each other tips and props on our builds. So please, dont hesitate to ask for help, or about anything in this thread or elsewhere. : )
