Cairo Queen (D2C Contest)

Newer Older

This is my entry for the D2C contest @ Eurobricks

TREASURE HUNT ON THE RIVER NILE

Theme: Pharaoh’s Quest

As they going down the Nile, more and more treasures are found. The further their trusted paddle boat brings them.., more mystical creatures of Egypt come along! Since they entered the Nile, a big crocodile named Slim follows every move they make.

The paddle boat they are travelling with is the 'Cairo Queen', named after the city where it's build. This boat is made for adventure, and will find it on it's way!

The set includes: Paddle boat, motorcycle, 6 minifigs, crocodile and a lot of cargo.

About the build:

I had the idea to build a vehicle for the Pharaoh’s Quest theme, but I didn't know what to make? So I was surfing on the internet to find some typical Egypt transportation, and found the paddle boat. It was hard to find a good example, cause all the good photo's I found where from typical tourist paddle boats. After a long search I found some old drawings and together with some new photo's I started to sketch, so this Paddle boat is inspired by the original River Nile boats, but is completely made up!

The boat measures 83 studs long, 18 studs wide (30 studs with the wheels), and 28 studs high. The colours I used are: Black, white, tan, dark red, brown, grey and dark grey.

You can see this and more of my MOCs on my own Lego website: www.mrbrick.nl
