container ship
After surfing the internet, I decided to build my own ship wanting to build a giant aircraft carrier, but I had no where near enough grey bricks. So looking on the internet again I came across the container ship and the rest is history. It took me a week and four rebuilds to get the front of the ship right and a whole weekend to build. It is roughly 3 feet long and a foot high and hold 200 containers.
About this creation

The front of the ship caused me most problems as it starts at a 45degrees and tapers into a 25degree angle. The fun part was that i don't have a lot of inverted roof peices and had to use the standed bricks.









The windows are just a 1x1 brick. I would like to build another at minifig scale, but have to wait for my lego collection to grow a bit more.

The containers were 4x8 and 3 deep, an only 200 of them. The container ships on the internet held several thousand, hmmmm i need just a few more then.

Quoting Space Pirate Wow! Did you really build 200 containers or just those on the surface?
Just those on the surface and underneath where I thought you could see though, but that still worked out to be around 150 containers.

Great container ship! Great shaping all around- the front turned out really nice! I am a car builder, but this is one great-looking ship! Great work! Keep building! -Anthony Dunne

Way to compromise between what you really want to do, and what your collection will allow you to do!
