"Condor" class cruiser, 1:350, real bricks
The new version of my favorite ship - ASW-cruiser pr.1123. Now from real LEGO bricks!
About this creation

LDD-version of the cruiser can be viewed here.




The flagship of the Soviet Black Sea Fleet - the anti-submarine cruiser "Moscow".




I have not built a LEGO model out of real bricks for a long time, so I ran into several difficulties. First, the lack of details of the right color. Therefore, we had to abandon the most common coloring of the deck - a combination of green and brown groundhog. I limited myself to the dark brown color of the deck. This variant of coloring was also found in photographs of a real cruiser.




Another problem was the strength of the structure. Solutions that were suitable for virtual modeling proved to be unsuitable in real life)) A lot had to be processed, as a result the model turned out to be very strong and easily disassembled into separate blocks if necessary.




The most difficult element (as it seemed to me initially) of building a cruiser model is its hull, which is difficult to make from bricks




When creating a ship superstructure, I could not find anywhere a few details that I had previously used in LDD-model of the cruiser. As a result, the fire control radars had to be re-worked, and the radar for detecting low-altitude targets was done in the old version.








But managed to apply several non-standard solutions, impossible in the LDD. Thanks to this, the twin 57-mm automatic cannons turned out better, and the Ka-25 anti-submarine helicopters finally received coaxial rotors! Also managed to find a successful solution for tractors))




The version with the underwater part of the hull has not been completed yet. I'm looking for the right parts for the propellers.








The "Condors" were designed primarily as anti-submarine warfare (ASW) vessels, and her weapons and sensor suite was optimized against the nuclear submarine threat. "Condor" combined a cruiser's armament forward with a large helicopter deck aft. Multi-storey superstructure, combined with funnel and tower-like pyramidal fore-mast from lightweight AMG alloys, gave the ship an impressive and spectacular view.




Variants of helicopters on the same scale as the cruiser: Ka-25, Mi-8 and Mi-24.




Ka-25 in hangar.




Specially for the distinguished BATOH rossi - option with transport-attack helicopters "Mi-24" ))




Due to their size, the Mi-8, Mi-14 and Mi-24 helicopters did not fit into the cruiser hangar and were based on the deck.




The underwater part of the hull is made easily removable.




Joint photo with 1:700 scale build.




The model of the ship is constantly being finalized, I hope you liked it! ))

Quoting Zentangle . Wow, how did you even... My head hurts just trying to think of the planning and building of this. Not to mention the tedious task of finding each and every piece in the right color. Great Job!!
Thank You, Zen! I also broke my head ))) more than once. The more struggling with the project, the more pleasure experience upon completion. In the selection of colors and designs are of course very helpful LDD. But to built the ship of course is much nicer with real bricks )))

Quoting Nick Barrett This is beautifully designed and even better than the LDD version. Having a separate hull to add to the waterline model is very good. Glad to hear it's sturdy too.

Quoting Johan van der Pluijm Great! Especially considering the small scale.
Thank you Johan! I like this scale for two reasons: 1. This is one of the standard ship-modeling scales. 2. Models do not take up much space and do not require too much bricks))

Quoting Clayton Marchetti It's great to see this in real bricks! I love the Ml-24. I like how you made the model both waterline and the bottom of the hull. The hull looks great nice and smooth. ... Outstanding fob!
Thank you, Clayton! I will definitely add photos from the Mi-24, standing on the deck. )
Quoting Clayton Marchetti If your still looking for screws those 1x1 studs with the 4 peddles in gold look awesome.
Yes, it's these details that I'm looking for propellers! )

Quoting Gabor Pauler It is interesting how much better MI-24 looks from real bricks. I think it highly depends on how 1×1 rounded transparent tiles are rendered.
Yes, probably. I want to make one more company for these three helicopters - Mi-6. These big machines were sometimes used to deliver cargo to Soviet aircraft carriers. Thank you for comment!

Quoting Henrik Jensen Really a pleasure to see a virtual model become real, especially when it`s such a great ship! Also nice to read about your experience in turning an LDD model into something that actually is buildable. A process I always have to consider, since all my models are created as LDD models, before I build them in real bricks. Hope you find the right parts for finishing the hull, Excellent work so far!
Thank you for your kind words, Henrik. Of the real bricks, it is always more pleasant to build))
