The U-505 German World War 2 Submarine is a Type IXc U-Boat; which was larger than the 'workhorse' type VIIc U-Boat
About this creation
I'm finally finished with my Lego U-505 Mini Fig Scale German Type IXc U-Boat.

Unlike my Type VIIc; this is a fully enclosed U-Boat that houses 5 mindstorm motors. Mindstorm motors run the propellers, rear dive planes, periscope, bow dive planes, and four bow torpedo doors. All of which is controlled by individual Mindstorm touch sensors.

I'm looking forward to taking it on a tour of Lego Conventions in 2013. Visit the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago and tour the actual U-505.

Beautiful work! I served aboard the PCE 846 that escourted the U-505 from Bermuda to begin the east coast War Bond Tour in May of 1945. First two stops were Philadelphia and New York City. It was quite a sight seeing the "Boat" go through the waves at 13 knots on the way over. When the tour ended in 1946 the U-505 became a "Rust Bucket" at the Portsmouth Navy Yard for 9 + years!Don't let yours "rust"!

What an incredible moc! Perfect scale and proportions. Stunningly accurate. Love the motorized functions, particularly the torpedo tube doors. This moc should have 5 times more "likes" than it currently has! Well done!!

Quoting milan rattenbury it is probably 8000 dolars or more
It's not anywhere close to that. The mindstorms blocks, motors, and sensors cost more than I put in the boat. But I'd sure sell it for around 8000 :)

the one I commented before seemed to have an interior, perhaps it was another one? wish jay could see this, I remember he was dissapointed when I suggested studying your techniques, but, after seeing 2-3 of your pics, I could see that THIS was the technique do acheive best results, since you went for motors, I guess there s no plce left for a realistic interior for the figs, as a story maker, I like interiors better, but as an xnt owner I understand too, I was impressed with the topedo hatch openings, incredible work nate, I forgot about you and your sub, it s a shock! lol!

Wow!! The scale and detail is great. The smooth edges would lift Mr Kelso's eye brows ;) I love that you have incorporated motors into the build for further realism. Dive, Dive, Dive

A-MAZ-ING!!! That is absolutely glorious! The scaling, the shaping, the colors, the mindstorm integration are all superb. What an accomplishment. You should be very proud. I hope that your creation inspires whole new generations of builders to amazing new heights of imagination.

Quoting Anders T There is a bit more "romance" to the type VII, but this model is spot on. That periscope just keeps going and going :)
I agree 100% but after touring the U-505 about a dozen or so times; I felt the need to add it to my wolfpack. ;)

Quoting alex wong This is perfect. What scale did you use when making the plan, 1/35 or 1/40?
1/40..but probably I went a little bit bigger to compensate for the minifig heigth/width issues. No disrespect to the minifig...
