Submarine: The Swordfish
reconnaissance submarine
About this creation
I guess I am back on mocpages...

This submarine is one of those midnight builds... you know, like when you get an Idea in the middle of the night and have to get up to start building, that kind of midnight build.
The Idea that kept me awake was the use of those technic panels as the nose for the submarine.
I was a bit inspired by the Blake and Mortimer comics...although this submarine doesn't look much like the submarine-jetfighter in Secret of the Swordfish.


Sorry about this one, I'm experimenting with photoshop :I

















The sub can hold a minifigure;






And this is how I created the underwater effect;

I searched my collection for a transp. blue panel that had the fewest scratches on it and placed it in front of the camera lens.

I hope you liked it.


Tricolore!

Excellent job, Sebeus! I really like the whole style of the submersible, especially the ropes that are on the top sides! Excellent work! By the way, would you mind if I sometime use that camera technique with the trans-blue piece (and credit would be given to you)? Again, excellent job! 5/5! :-)

I love it! Not sure about the blue photos (nice idea though) but the sub and seascape are brilliant. I'm impressed that you managed to squeeze a minifig in there. It puts my efforts (to build the shark sub from Tin Tin - Red Rackham's Treasure) to shame.

hehe, you mentioned PS and I thought, cool, he's started playing with filters, then it turns out you used a manual filter while shooting pics, lol, absolute classic old school dude. Cool midnight build :)

Totally excellent! That line where the deck meets those Technic panels along the bow... yes! The placement of the stabilizers, so suggestive of a sharks pectoral fins. Perfect. I can hear the vague ping of sonar as this villainous steel shark patrols the shallows. One of the best subs I've ever seen, even if the pic of the crewmember wedged in there made me claustrophobic! Dive! Dive!

This is a fun little sub. If i saw one on a store shelf I would buy it.

Reminds me of the old cinematography trick of stretching a nylon over the camera lens... neat! But I am glad we were treated to that red color of the sub. We need a fleet of those equipped with all sorts of sonar instrumentation to go looking for missing Flight 370! Oh, but wait... that was aliens, ha, ha! :)

Who needs photoshop when you've got trans. blue panels ? Great idea, and the Swordfish looks pretty cool as well.

Nice work on that front, but my favourite part is the small raised section with the hatch - a bit of classic submarine incorporated into this streamlined futuristic machine. Great work!

I like underwater creations a lot, and it is sad that you are the only consistent builder in that theme.

Great submarine. Good idea to use the technic panels as nose.

Excellent work! It seems you've been busy. I love the front conning tower; it reminds me a bit of a U-boat, so it has a distinctive look and feel. Also, clever work with the photography; I originally thought you placed the MOC in a trans-blue container....
