Amazing stuff. I built a hull with all those little lumps once, but it wasn't made from legos I have to hide this post from the grandson.

When glue or when 2 layers off bricks are used it will proof watertight.
I build several floating LEGO vessels with 2 layers off bricks as outer shell which proofed to be watertight, at least for low speeds.
When glued together or even epoxied it will certainly be watertight.
In the modelclub off which I'm a member there is this guy who build a model off the Dreadnought out of LEGO.

I tried to find a photo showing the Dreadnought but couldn't find it.
I didn't take any photos showing my floating LEGO models, though I do have some showing an attempt to RC a LEGO tugboat (glued hull) which would have been some 1,5m long if I'm not mistaken.
I took it apart years ago, it never did a succesful floating test.
I'll try to find some photos showing that tug boat when I get home.

I've seen several people making these kind of fantastic models. How do you design them. Are there any programs for that? I don't think it's just stacking brick. They look fantastic.

Hi Danny,

If you find a way to build it (like I did) it's not that hard to build.
I used to just stack bricks.
I thought there I once seen software for designing builds.
