Space Battleship Yamatao, a moc by Mark Rodrigues
This is a moc [my own creation] version of the Space Battleship Yamato by afol [adult fan of LEGO] Mark Rodrigues. The original stems from the franchise of the same name and is itself based on the Imperial Japanese Navy’s Yamato class battleships which were in service during World War II. It’s neither steam- nor dieselpunk, of course, but retrofitted futurism for sure.

    a.w.e.s.o.m.e. Way cooler than railway models, though steampunk aficionados could establish a new field…

    N-TV: Lego – süß oder “for Men”?
    “Mit derselben Verve, mit dem sonst nur After Shaves oder Motorräder beworben werden, preist Lego seine Baureihe “Technic” an” *haha*
