I'm sure, that everyone has already heard about that technique, when we use only 1x2 plates or bricks to creat curves. I wanted to try it, too. The result is here with 100+ 1x2 bricks, 50+ 1x2 plates and a fully detailed interior!
At first please look at my previous sailboat. It was interesting to see the difference between them. In the old one there are a boat hull of a Lego set. Now it was very cool that I didn't have fixed dimensions!
There are pictures about the whole boat, after that about the outer detailes and about the interior, too.
The boat has some interesting features and building techniques. My favourite one is the brickbuilt mast. There are four sections in it:
-2x2 round bricks
-1x1 bricks with stud on four sides and 1x1 round plates with holes on the studs, covered by 1x8 tiles
-1x1 high bricks
-1x1 round bricks
Fortunately all of the elements has hole, so it was possible to put technic axles and bars or rigid hoses into them. So the fragility of the mast disappeared!
One of my favourites from 2015. I just love Lego boats, especially at minifig scale, and this is one of the best I've ever seen. The details are brilliant and the boat itself is beautifully done. Wonderful work!
Wow, what a great model. It looks like a great place for holidays, the interior is so cool! There are some neat building techniques, too. I especially like the 1x2 panels you used for the upper layer of the boat hull. This way the deck panels fit almost seamless. Great job! :-))
