"Stephanus Rex" Austro-Hungarian Battleship
Well I fianlly made something not Star Wars. Yesterday was our national celebration (20th August---the founding of the Hungarian Kingdom) so I decided to make our historical battleship, the "Stephanus Rex" (or Saint Stephan). Please everybody read through the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy's most beautiful ship's short but epic history...
About this creation
About he name: "Saint" Stephan the First was the one who founded the Hungarian Kingdom in 1001. In all year in the 20th of august we celebrate this event.

The "Stphanus Rex" (or Szent-István Csatahajó in hungarian) was made by the Austro-Hungarian Empire's shipyard in Fiume in 1915. In the First World War the ship was used to provide anti-air protection to the fortress of Pola. Then it was sent to a mission (1918 June)to break the british-french ship-blockade, but during the battle an italian MAS motor-torpedo sinked it. Here is an old photo.



In this lego creation I tried to focus the highest level of accuracy: the ship has two heavy batteries (6 cannons) on the front agains air units, 4 cannons both side of the ship and four rocket launchers on the back.











I hope it works---I think it looks as good as my sw creations...and God bless the brave Austrian and Hungarian soildiers who died for their homeland. Also God bless the brave French and Italian soldiers who also died in the battle.



It says: " The duty for your homeland is more important than life. God bless the heroes!"

Also please don't forget to rate and comment! Thanks!
