About this creation
I build this mini scale ship in LDD. Its the first of a few small cruisers/frigates/destroyers which will escort my Nimitz.
It have been build in the last version. The missile launchers are included in the deck.
Theres also one chopper on the flight deck in the back.
11.) Here we see the "Tico" and the Nimitz (which is introduced here) on high see.
15.) Behind the scenes of the Ticonderoga
Please leave a comment (if u like it) and rate. thx :)
Oh yea and pls stay away from asking 4 instructions.
I love lego ship models at this scale: it takes me right back to my childhood! I always loved the Ticonderoga class cruisers and you did an excellent job with the shape and proportions. I think your details are sparingly and skillfully executed. Great work.
I like it

This ship is very inpiring, and makes me want to try another micro-boat. You really nailed the sleek lines, and the sonar-mast thing is incredible. I can learn alot here.
Quoting catmy ^^
Nice work! Good for you to increase your mini scale ships. What is your next plan? Would your like to try littoral combat ship?
Oh theres a lot work in progress. The next will be a amphibian assault ship complete with choppers, hovercraft and some marines-stuff. A protype of my Bell/Boeing V-22 can be seen on the Nimitz-pictures here. :)
There are also some more smaller excort vessels (some of the german navy).
Thx 4 your comment.
Excellent as usual! It is great to see that you've started to increase the amount of non-LDD projects. People often tend to treat miniscale MOCs as second class, behavior that I find completly inappropriate and unfair. Ships like this might help people change their mind...
