A multi-functional deep-sea submarine that's worth your money
About this creation
The Aquaton Submersible – as a sequel to the Angler – is a multi-functional deep-sea submarine packed with equipment . . . and good looks too.
Nicknamed “Snub”, the Aquaton Submersible is an unmanned exploration vessel capable of exceeding depths of 23,000 feet safely. Based on the Lego Company’s “Tee-Vee” unit, I added some extra features which allow it to operate on its own in the deep underwater world.
Though it is small, its size acts as an advantage while exploring underwater chasms and sunken ships.
When first put into the water, “Snub” is curled up for easy transportation. Notice its large propeller. Though it is hazardous to any unfortunate fish who might get in the way, it allows Snub to travel at 30 mph at 10,000 feet and 20 mph at 20,000 feet (as well as turn in any direction).
Snub is packed with all sorts of equipment for deep-sea exploration. It can collect live samples of animals and collect all types of data from temperature to chemical tests. The ship can be operated from a ship or can be programmed to do a mission on its own.
Two fully-functional mechanical arms allow it to hook onto an object or haul it up to the surface, as well as collect data samples and even open doors in sunken ships.
With the two pictures above, you can see how Snub “opens up” after it’s been placed in the water. Inside the two fins that help it maneuver in the water, you can see two high-density flood lights as well as a still and video camera.
Once he’s opened up, Snub is pretty good-looking, too. Here you can see how his arms articulate.
Snub has been used on a wide range of missions from deep-sea exploration to rescue missions. Above you can see Snub being lowered into the water and exploring a sunken Viking ship dating back to 300 A.D.
Above you can compare the size between the Aquaton Submersible and a minifig. Though it is small, it can be a vital addition to any deep-sea exploration team or an important rescue mission.
Easy to make and important as well, the Aquaton Submersible is a great addition to any submarine fleet.
Very nice job- simple design, but very detailed. In response to your request for an alliance, when our faction was taken over, all alliances were terminated, and no new alliances are being accepted. When our new governments decides to reinstate alliances, you will be informed. Thank You for considering us.
Nice. I like the radiator decals on the armor plates. "Ah, when I was a boy we had to swim ourselves to get to sunken wrecks... No fancy schmancy little robots to do the job..." Sweet. About you allying with me, why isn't my homepage link on your site? I was wondering for a while... so I took your link off my homepage. But for your review mentioning our alliance, I wondered again and put you back up.
