DSV Beluga

Newer Older

Since I was a kid I have always been interested and curious about deep-sea exploration and underwater research. I remember Jacques Cousteau's documentaries and how much I used to enjoy them on TV, I has never put on a diving suit in my life though, maybe one day.

This microscale model is heavily inspired by the DSV Shinkai 6500 and the DSV-4 SeaCliff class submersibles, and of course by the beautiful Cuusoo Lego set 21100. The DSV Beluga is a Swiss-Italian manned research submersible capable of diving up to a depth of 6,500 m. matching the DSV Shinkai and SeaCliff performance.

For this tiny model I wanted to use as little pieces as possible to have a clean, almost minimalistic design and keep it compact so maybe I can keep the little thing on my shelve :D… I would love to build a MiniFig scale Beluga some day though :)

    Oh yes nice1 sir, these underwater crafts have very interesting shapes, right now there are a few guys trying to go beyond the abyss, you should see what gear they have. Check it out, it was on the BBC, you could create an underwater series starting with this one! Cool presentation BTW.
