Hey Everybody. This is my Remote Controlled (RC) Pirate Ship Hugtand. Read below for more
About this creation
Hey Everybody.
Its been a darn long time since i last shown much activity,
You all know life, sometimes its more imortent than Lego.
However, just because I've been silent, It by no means I've not build anything,

This is my Remote Controlled Sailing Ship Mark II.

The real result after the prototype the landlubber: http://mocpages.com/moc.php/360854

it only took my about a year to make this system work properly,

At system version 34 the prototype worked just fine, no problems at all,
however, the weight of that were a mere half Kilo gram.
The Weight of Hugtand is
3 kilo gram. this ment the axel bend over and broke in 5 minutes.

Then one day, i exhibited in Skærbæk LegoFanWeekend
(the biggest yearly Lego Event in europe)
And when i was snailing along at a slow pace down the floor, a dutch technic expert asked me how i made the gearing and axel and so on, i showed it to him.
He replied: Mate, you can do better than that.

So we sat down at my table broke out my huge box of spare parts and in 1 hour we had created a propoltion system that worked.

The rudder function kinda worked most of the time, so we left it at it, but in the next morning, when i entered the great gymhall, he had been there before me,
Messure how much space there was in the cabin, gone to one of the many lego shops nearby, took what he needed , and left a note with hes name and phone number, so he could pay for what he took.
And he created an entirely new rudder system. afterwards i mounted it in, made a few adjustments, and now it's at system version 64 it goes like a dream, fast pace and very stabile.

Shes powered by two medium Power Function Engines .
One for the rudder and one for the 2 front wheels.

The design of this ship took about 64 hours.
The entire ship is inspired by the Ninjago SnakeHead,
as you can see is decoration at port and starboard side.
I was at a LegoEvent, some guy sold Minifig parts by the kilo, 35 euro a kilo. (very cheap) then i spotted theese snake heads, and when i touched it, i saw Hugtand before my Eyes. like an vision they always have in movies....
I bought as many as he had 45. (for the silly price of 5 euro..
they normal cost 0.73 euro a head.....) and im very pleased with the result.

The remotecontrolled system in total, has taken about 300 hours, properly more, to make it work properly, now without further blabber from me, i give you
Hugtand.



This is a small video, so that you can see what im on about.



I spend 7 hours alone to design the snake/dragon head. i tried Cobras, and all kinds of snaked, none of them worked, then i somehow came of with this and im quite pleased.







Here is the Ninjago heads in question. they garnish the ship very well, and makes it look more sleek.....in my mind atleast.
Every single time i exhibit anywhere, theres atleast 37 kids who says: Oh look its Ninjago Snake heads, they completely ignore the rest of the ship and the fact it can sail at the floor.....its extremely silly.





























The Cabin Lights On and Off, i love mosaic windows, especially because you can do that. with a tiny amount of light bricks.




















Since i started making pretty much only exhibition models, with no real interior, since most of the time its cramped up with technology.
but i wanted to show interior anyways. so i came up with this solution, and i think its quite clever indeed.


Fourth Wall Commentary.
Some of you might noticed the radical background changes, its because this post is put together from about 6 diffrent exhibitions over the past year or so.

Hugtand means Fang or HookFang in Danish....for thoose of you who wonders....

Quoting Dr. Monster Super sweet. I love the style and the design. And of course, ya gotta love that anchor! Killer MOC.
I like the anchors aswell. Its my 2 favorite thing about my it. First i tried to get the claws in a Chrome/ perl silver color, however i only had 1 . however they do look nice eventhough they are Dark Tan. and my favorite thing about this Moc is ofcourse without doubt the Idol Head

The best parts of this moc are the serpentine heads lining the ship. I would never have thought of using them in such a way. And the whole r/c thing is nice too ;)

Sweet. Awesome ship, Morthen! I really like the overall majestic design of this ship, and the ornate designs with the snake heads really give a nice touch to it. Very nice! 5/5! :-)

Quoting Sebeus I A very nice addition, I decided to use my power functions for otehr things and keep my ships purely esthetic, nevertheless, I do appreciate what you accomplished with this ship. I like all these cobra heads decorating the broadside. Like I said earlier I think you really got the curve of this ship right, your best one so far I'd say in that matter. Keep up the naval activities!
Thank you, however we both know the reason why your ships is just using stationary power function is beacuse i already won the race and become the first between us, to make this. And yes i will indeed keep up my naval activities, as i told you, i got an entire fleet literally, that is just waiting to conquer the entire Mocpages. Wuhahaha
