HMHS Britannic and RMS Olympic

On November 21, 1916, HMHS Britannic struck a German mine and sank, following the fate of her sister ship Titanic. Rob H. (rh1985moc) has honored the memory of this ill-fated World War I hospital ship with a microscale rendition in LEGO.

Of course, Britannic and Titanic weren’t the only ships commissioned by the White Star Line at the time. RMS Olympic served a long career, and accompanies Rob’s Britannic on the LEGO seas.

What makes both of these LEGO ships even cooler is that they’re threaded with LEDs to light up the night.

Nathan Proudlove says his latest steampunk creation was inspired by Dark Cloud 2, a Christina Aguilera song, and the steam spider by Crabfu Steamworks.

In contrast to a lot of steampunk creations of the past, Nathan includes big splotches of color. The big flywheel gives it the classic steampunk touch, but the turquoise boiler and accents take this beyond the world of brown and gray.
