Caleb's 4x4 Contest Round 2 -- Peril on the High Seas
Caleb's 4x4 Contest Round 2 -- Peril
About this creation
This MOC is my entry for Round 2 of Caleb's 4x4 Contest. Since a nautical theme worked pretty well for me in Round 1, I decided to stick with that theme for Round 2.

The Scene: It's a stormy night. The seas are rough. A 50-foot yacht starts to take on water. Eventually it succumbs to the waves and capsizes. The crew bails out and are hanging on for dear life.

The Good News: A Coast Guard helicopter has arrived on station, a rescue swimmer is in the water, and they are lowering the harness in an attempt to rescue the survivors.

The Bad News: The storm is getting worse and lightning is threatening to knock out the helicopter.

The Really Bad News: Unbeknownst to anyone, a gigantic prehistoric megalodon is lurking beneath the waves,.... and it's looking for dinner!

Quoting Halhi 141 Hmm.. While I like the build, it seems like cheating to use a piece in a color not available in real bricks (the lightning).
I tried to check that piece specifically against BrickLink, but I was hampered by the differing nomenclatures between the LDD and Bricklink. If the judges see fit to dock me points or DQ me, I'm fine with that. Either way, I had a lot of fun doing it.

I wouldn't worry about it. The normal purple/blue lightning wouldn't (shouldn't) affect the outcome of your scores. Anyway, I think that this is a great build! Nice details - all the way from the ocean floor to the storm cloud!

Quoting Caleb of Enalica Great work, I love the lightning! Good luck!
Thanks. My idea was to have "peril" on more than one level. First there is the capsized boat. Then, there is lightning storm. Finally, there is the gigantic prehistoric shark. Each of them is perilous on its own, but together they make for a really desperate situation.

Wow Matt this incrediable! I love the helicopter and the storm cloud with lighting! The shark coming up to the overturned sailboat really gives this a sense of urgency. This is trully a stunning and gripping scene.
