slowly coming along,had to redo the whole garage out to make room,the turrets are just sitting on thedeck until a way is made for them to turn smoothly,a lot of orders on bricklink will hopefully do the deck but it will take a few thousand tan pieces for that,as you can see there is no much room left,thanks for looking
Oh my WOW! These need a wide audience. Amazing stuff. Once you've joined Brickish, keep up to date via this website http://www.greatwesternlegoshow.com/ and, nearer the time, you can use it to register as an exhibitor and the models you want to bring / display space requirements etc.

This is very, very impressive. Definitely one of the best builds I have seen on Mocpages!
Jim, it is a shame to see these monumental creations inside a garage and not being viewed by many thousands of people. These should be showcased at a Legoland. You must have millions of pieces. You have a new fan from a small builder. Too many adjectives come to mind, but absolutley genius. Great Work!!

You, sir, need to organize an official exhibition for these; there's enough ships to fill a museum. The USS Missouri is going pretty good, have you considered using the huge official lego turn table point for the turrets? It's found in the #7632 Crawler Crane, and it comes with built-in teeth for gears.

EDIT: And, adding on to Achintya Prasad's comment above, the piece in the crawler set is the old, non-technic one; I happen to own it.
yes it will be nice to display them,you dont get to appreciatte them on top of each other,once the missouri is finished we,ll see about a better arrangement,as for turntable i have a few of the old style ones,going to try brick wall in a circle shape on its flat to give it a smoother surface to turn and maybe a few rubber wheels to assist,we will see about motors farther on,and what some of you come up with,its coming along well at the moment,weather is bad so i,m off work LOL.so far the ship is in 5 sections and very heavy,
Jim, you shot that tank guy down in a "nice-nasty" sort of way...that was funny, LOL!!! I read that comment and then your response and still LMAO. Well, I can't wait to see that final results of the Might Mo!!
Thanks everyone for your comments and support.makes me want to get on with this MOC as its dragging on now.but the sheer size and bricks needed takes its toll.gathered up a lot of bricks so it should come on a bit better now.just the tan pieces to get.thanks again.its only with seeing your MOCs that helps to give ideas on how to build better.

I'm not impressed, I can do that too!
i am sure you can.look forward to seeing you build something like this.it is good to see other peoples take on ships etc.seen your tanks they are impressive but sadly not a match for the big guns of the missouri.peronally i dont usually leave negative comments as i try to appreciatte the work and research that goes into it.but jealosy is a funny thing.however your comment is well worded and very constructive
BTW, just as an add on to Maxine's comment, be careful when buying those large turntables. In the crawler set that is mentioned, I think that is the new version; trust me, for with the old version. The old version has mounting points for the studs. The new version is completely technic.....
PS, check this out over on my Flickr; should help you out some: http://www.flickr.com/photos/99826668@N06/9887184056/
I d have to be using seriously good stuff not to be impressed by this...just the ship under construction would be enough, but, the whole fleet is just unimaginable! it would ruin me just to have to buy the blue baseplates to lay them on...
She's coming along wonderfully! It still amazes me to see it every time I look back at the previous updates for it. I enjoyed seeing the glimpses of the other creations along the walls too! Now besides carefully, how in the world do you move it? Is it modular? My version is going to be nowhere near as big, only about 2 1/2 feet. I threw up a progress picture with the transforming gun turrent if you want to see the mess. It's more organized now though.
