    ————————————————-LEGO Creation ———————————————————

    This is my four attempt to build a ship creation. The whole ship length is about 1.5 metres and 30cm depth. The model was being displayed in the ACGHK 2014. Due to the showcase size, it is a bit scaled down to fit into the showcase.

    There is a CHINARE own helicopter which is a Kamov KA-25, but with regarding to the display deadline, it has replaced by the helicopter in a LEGO Arctic set 60036.

    With also using the minifigures from the Arctic series, they make the ship alive for researching in the Arctic area!

    However, the modified ship was unfortunately destroyed during the transportation to the LEGO Fan Weekend 2014…… I hope I can spare sometime to repair it again!
