This is my nuclear powered destroyer, whom's name is yet to be found. This pretty much starved my already depleted collection of dark and light grey bricks, but i believe it is worth it. It is exactly 1 foot 8 inches long, about 11 inches high, and almost four inches wide. I tried my best to get this exactly perfect, but i ran out of bricks at the end, so i kind of cheated in the stern area. There are two gun mounts, unlike the real destroyer that features one. I was unable to lay tiles down, so this contains very many open studs. This is NOT mini-figure scale. This destroyer features a Sikorsky CH-53e Superstalion and two figures, all to scale. And finally, if you think it is inaccurate, compare it with the USS Lassen destroyer (type that in Google images)
About this creation
Here is my Nuclear Destroyer of the United States Navy! I have not given it a name, but when i built, the picture i looked at was the USS Lassen.
As you can see, I ran out of grey bricks and had to use the hole + blue peg + panel method....
here is the bow. u can see the CH-53e right there on the landing pad.
Here is the bridge and the ridiculously over sized gun. The gun is smaller on the real thing, but i have a habit (and an obsession) to put big guns on stuff. the bridge is one of the most accurate things on here.
The back of the bridge...it looks more like a block to me...moving on.
here is the giant...whatever you call it. the top there is not a smoke stack, but rather a large fan to ventilate the nuclear engine, according to the experts.
Here is the marvelous poop deck...erm stern. there is also a pad here for the CH-53e. the rear portion isn't quite big enough, but it can be overlooked...right?
the rear gun emplacement... this is not on the real ship, but it just seems like a bad idea to leave the stern defenselessness.
here is the CH-53e, a sailor, and a pilot. this is to scale with the ship.
Well i'm done here, i hope you liked it:D please, rate and comment and criticize.
