Atlantis city of the Ancients.
This is my model of the Alteran Cityship known as Atlantis. The center of the city being the center strip of the city, is soild with a micro-scale underwater jumper hanger. the city has a massive amound of supports underneath it allowing it to be lifted to create a flying illusion. I am also working on a possible way to encorperate tecnic and lego robot parts into it. The porpose of this is to create a subersable system because if you get enough water in it it will stay underwater but i cant get enough into it so i want to create a moter that sucks the water in. I also tryed to encorperate lighting into some towers and it is taking alot of work to do so ALOT the only one that can be done easyly is the central control tower. but there are couple of problems like overheating wires and short circut from water contact. that can be fixed with some glue and sarain rap. any suggestions leave a post.
About this creation
This is a picture of one of the peirs. As you can see the runway landing part is now raised. I did some modifications to the peirs and made it so the runway was raised so it gives a more realistic look more true to the show and so when in water it fills up like it does in the show. i did this to two of the three smaller peirs.
This is a picture of the new small addition i added on its kind of like a beach in a way. I added towers onto it and i felt this was a neccesary addition becuase of the fact it is in the show however you dont see it very often. most of the time a good portion of it is submerged. the towers on that section arnt in the show though i just thought it would look cool with a small section of the city always underwater.
This is a picture of the northern most peir. I made it in the same shape as the others but by using a diffrent method. since i had run out of angle peices i used what i guess you can call a side construction method and used angular bricks to create the peirs shape.
This is a picture of Atlantis scaled with the Odessey and an Aurora class ship. The black thing is the odessy kind of hard to see because the pictures are a tad grainy but thats what you get with a cell-phone camera
A picture of Atlantis for refrence of the shape.
A picture of the main city and control tower. The control tower is one of the things i am most proud of it looks great with the right lighting with the light shining through the windows.
