Oh yes, go ahead, go to Belgium and search the entire land.

Small chance you'll find me there though. :-P

No, but he may find me 8-|

On second thought, if he were to cross the border into a certain not specified country with windmills he might encounter you though.

I'm sorry Jcole 208, you're entry doesn't apply to the contest rules, therefore your entry is disqualified.

Pietje's impressive dragon ship definately caught my vote *wub*

The basic yellow, red, green, colours and the oriental-ish style makes it very nice looking, even to a not pirate fan :-$

Good job to the other entries aswell *sweet*

I've published my entry, but a few words first:

I'm not exactly a master ship builder! :-P

I second this - my first ship that I've published isn't as good as I'd have liked it to be - I felt the sail and rigging/ropes let it down a bit. Ah well. *sad*

So, you have found some of these hull pieces?

Kinda...alternative means doncha know!

I think my entry is even more of a wildcard than Pietje's! I thought about the "Trade" theme for the IMTP ship, and, after watching one of Jamie Oliver's programmes about chicken farming, decided to have parrot smuggling - the cramped conditions e.t.c. After discovering I only have 6 parrots, a brown eagle and an owl, I decided this was not fiesable and moved onto animal smuggling. Then I ran out of animals and ideas. Then Piratical supply. Aha! Perfect. By this stage I'd built the basic boat with half a hull, but needed a reason for it to exist - it is too flimsy to be a fighter and too large to be an escape boat, so a trader instead.

:-) Enjoy!

Mr. SlyOwl,

Did you use the bow piece described in the rules below?

...

For this contest you must use the 6 wide bow pieces similar to the ones in the IMTP ship.

It looks like you might have in the stern, but i have to ask to be sure.

Three more entries! :-D

Great work guys!

Slyowl, if you did use the hull piece, could you show us that clearly?

Captain Ka boom is it possible for you to make better pictures?

Could get you some more votes, it looks great!

Um...technically I didn't use the hull piece as I don't actually have it, but it can fit into the prow and I would have put it there if I had it - it would have made it much stronger...

Please don't disqualify me *sweet*

And I can't take any more pictures as I've already dismantled it...

Mr. SlyOwl

Since when have I been a Mister? I'm not in league with Mr Phes and Mr Tiber, y'know! I used to be a Cap'n, but now I'm just a King, eh Mr Phred? X-D

Quite an interesting technique you're using King SlyOwl. T'would be a shame if you were disqualified but it wouldn't be fair to those who have used the hull piece.

Any chance of grabbing one or two off BrickLink in the next week or so?

Hmm... :'-( If I am disqualified, I would appreciate it that instead of deleting my post, you could move it to the Pirate Forum as a MOC, but I hope it won't come to this :'-(

'Fraid not - I vaporise all my models as soon as they're on Brickshelf, and that hull is one hard build! It kept exploding on me :'-( But I can get them for free on MLCad, so here's the version, with how I would have used the hull piece, if I had it -
