Type VIIc U-Boat Mini Fig Scale
About this creation
Lego Type VIIc U-Boat Mini Fig Scale MOC

New pictures coming soon....just need to finish up the 'cutaway side'.

The interior has 44 lifelites (which can be found at www.lifelites.com) for canister lights and lighting up the guages. Another 2 lifelites light up the running lights and another light will be used for a u-boat pen diorama of an arc welder.

Video of Lego Welder working on the conning tower:



The boat from tip to tip is 6'2" in length and 8" wide with both saddle tanks attached. The forward dive planes move by remote control and are tied to the forward dive plane wheel in the control room. Both props move (in alternate directions) by remote as well.



Please 'open pic. in new window' to not disrupt the music. ;)

Great job there! Really love the hull shape, you got that down. Clever piece usage, too; I would have never thought of the building techniques used in that. Thanks for posting!

A thing of beauty. This is something I've always wanted to do since watching das boot as a kid, but I could never have done it as well. Love the way you got the shape of the hull using technic.

This is a spectacular build and the best WWII submarine I've ever seen built out of lego. I just wish that we could see it a little better even though I know it is very hard to photograph something 6 feet long

Quoting Victor ruiz 100/5 man!At firs i thought those round things weren't lego but the i remember one of the lego sets having that!what song is that anyway?
The 'round things' are from those airplane sets. I did have them light gray until Lego made them in the dark gray for the cargo plane. The song is the ending theme for the German submarine movie "Das Boot". If you haven't seen it; I highly recommend it. Start off with the 2 hour 'American' version but use the German language with subtitles and if you liked it; then graduate to the 5 1/2 hour version.

Great work! Good ideas for the hull structure with the option to build interior. Nice use of plane parts on the side tanks. Do not destruct it, perhaps one day your VIIc and my Tirpitz can be placed side by side.
