I've done quite a lot of modifications to the rear! 11086 bricks!
About this creation
This rear design is a small tribute to the old sail ships! =)
I've prepared the rear for a submarine mine system, adding a hatche... I know I will have to make the front higher, and a great interior!

I'll use its rear "logo" to protect a chopper airport... for an AHA-64, or similar! Now, I know it will be a lots of parts!

I've improved the transmission trees and propellers' support. I've upgraded the hull accordind to this... The propellers are now on the same horizontal level...

salut jay! pour la technique de briques pliees, il n y as pas de charnieres, c est comme le vaisseau de christophe, les briques ont du jeu d espace entre elles, 3-4 ne fonctionne pas tellement, mais quand tu en as 20-30 [comme toi] ca plie un peu, tu peut pas faire ca en ldd, juste en vrai, c est aussi utilise pour faire des tour rondes!

I guess it would need four props, but it just doesn't look right because they are so close together and they are to high.

Quoting Luke Vosburgh I am not even going to try and download that sucker! But anyways, I think you should only have two props. It would look better. Will this be an actual iron clan or is that just a name for it to show how powerful it is? But anyways, this has turned out awesome. PS: don't forget the life rafts, it would be much cooler if you could do that! Good luck!
If I had to restart it, it would be a bit wider, for the propeller system, to be able to make a "fairing" arround the propellers.(and to put ONLY 2 propellers is oferring me the possibility to do this...AND I'D LIKE TO DO THAT!) I suppose you're talkin about the general line, AND the propellers. But don't you think 2 propellers aren't enough for that big amount of "steel"?!? I'm actually trying to "upgrade" the Ironclad concept(I know they have been mainly replaced by another type of "main ship": the aircraft carreer,but, this ship attracts me far more than the Destroyer/Ironclad) to make it a more modern weapon. I have projects for it, like armoured boxes, inside the hull, containing the canon bullets, some removing floors, inside the hull to see the different floors... This time, my creation should be almost "fully viewable"... And you can count on me. I've made for a swiming pull, the home cinema, etc... It will be very difficult to know the strength of that if I ever build it one day...

Quoting cyberfrank 2010 salut jay! incroyablement massif! tres impressionnant, mais, si je compte bien, c est $5000 ? c est 10 fois plus cher que ce que je t avait suggere, as tu vu un cuirasse aver la technique des briques pliees? il y as a apprendre la, ca me semble beaucoup plus economique aussi, par lego, ca me coute 80 cents pour un 4x2, c est fou! une creation de 100 briques, me coute $80! 100 briques, c est rien! a ce prix, mon hotel m aurait coute $4000, j estime qu il m as coute environ $ 6-700! quelle difference! penses y, c est tres bien, mais, il dois y avoir une facon de trouver moins cher!
Salut mon cher Frank! par technique des briques pliées, entend tu des plaques montées sur des charnières avec une "ossature" plus légère? C'est foutu, j'ai déja tout construit en dur, comme pour Titan. N'oublie pas que je suis en train d'essayer de remettre le cuirassé au gout du jour! Et que je ne suis pas du genre à "mégoter" sur le prix! =)

Quoting Deus Otiosus I was wondering if you were going to put a trident somewhere... I'd mosaic it on a side too.
Would you? I could, and I take your suggestion but I think the Poseidon's sign can remain only on the rear! For me, that's enough! =)

Quoting michael k. awesome job! you work fast! when do you expect to start on the deck?
Thanks Michael! I don't know, just let me complete the hull's inside and close it! I've started to make the second floor(to cover the first)! =)

Quoting Sam "The legoman" Knavel Wonderful ship! This was uploaded at the right time, I just got a big LDD project finished and its a skyscraper in minifig scale. :)
Hey Sam! I wanted to come and see your LDD project, but don't see it on your page! Can you give me a link? =)

Quoting Cody G Well done, I love the trident bit! Oh, and one thing that you could try to prevent your computer from getting too sluggish would be to copy the uppermost bricks on the ship and open them in a new LDD file. Then just build off of that and after the top is done, put the two halves together.
Thanks Cody, but, don't worry for my pc: a new graphic card(Radeon HD 6970) is coming(my one has been bought in 2008; Geforce 8800 GT), and more RAM... For information, my actual PC is a Core 2 Duo 3 Ghz(E8400), 3 gigs of ram, and Geforce 8800GT =)

Quoting Eric W. Wow this thing is a beast. I remember from your last update how big this project was. Now you added more detail. I know that this is really expensive if you order this directly from LEGO. Do you have plans building this with real pieces? Either way, This is still a very cool ship!
thanks Eric! I will have to make the balance between my love for this(it has to be at least the same as for my submarine!) and my budject... Honeslty, the crazy man will say yes! The reasonable man won't! =)

Amazing work Jay. Looks fantastic, my computer couldn't handle a design of that size no way. Looking really good.

I like how you put the red and green lights on the trident, looks awesome so far. Make some life rafts for it, just in case you know!

This is becoming huge and... great!! Good luck for what is next... ^^ I'm waiting for the future WIP to comment the rear. Actually, I'm not very fond of it, but... Wait and see. Vintage stuffs can look really fine when all is over.

Looking great Jay! You're making very good progress. Are we going to be lucky enough to see this actually built? I would love to see it in the brick, but i'd understand if not as the price is nearly as colossal as the ship :) Looking forward to the next progress report :)
