    That is cool! I really wish I had legos since some pretty kick-butt ball machines have been built from them but they're so dang expensive!

    good to see some people still on instructables...... Anyway gret model but its a bit too colorful. I understand not many people have all one color lego and i dont either, but the color hides the features a little. Great ship though ive been trying to buy a warship buillding brick set.......any ides?

    ...just not great camouflage? Yeah, I know; but on a ship this size (at least for me) I had to improvise. ;) As far as ideas for your warship...I'll tell you my secret. I got my inspiration from the Megablocks 9762 Destroyer set, which I acquired at a garage sale. If you go to the Megablocks website and type in the product number (you may need to add the Destroyer part, a newer set might have the same number), you should find a link to the instructions. I would never have been able to figure out the curvature of the bow without it. My Cruiser is an embellished and expanded version. Hope this helps. :D

    Dude, this is filed in the K'NEX section. Can you fix that?
    Anyway, nice ship. Good to see some LEGO shipbuilders out here.

     I'm glad you like it. I have other rather extravagant Lego models that I could make slideshows out of if you like. (One is a pretty useless car that looks awesome)
