Latest MOC Cargo/Treasure ship

Welcome one and all to my newest moc.

dscn0713.jpg_thumb.jpg

BSB related as ever and this i think will be the final incarnation of this paticular vessel though her sister ship is still languishing between builds.

I'm open to suggestions for improvements and there is still a little work to be done on the back end of the ship and cabins quarters not to mention the lack of access to the top deck....

But yer the main key idea behind this ship was cargo space. As you can see in the pictures she has a HUGE cargo hold. Due to the nature of the cargo at the moment the main deck is converted to a gun deck to provide protection from pirates and alike. For other cargos this deck could also be utilised for cargo. The foredeck carries two cannons too to be sure that anyone trying to get in the way coming into or out of any ports will hastely be moving out of the way.

8 cannons bless her topside, 3 a side with 2 chasers. Not the most formidable of firepower arrangements but more than enough to see off any pirate BSBs and even if she comes across a SES then her marines should be sufficient to protect her.

The Marine detachment are aboard to protect the cargo and the crew has the admiral aboard to keep an eye on the most precious cargo.

She comes heavily armoured with tumbelhome sides and despite the vast quantity of cargo carried she still manages to be a fairly rapid little ship.

Real money?! X-D

Pfft! These Imperials can't even build their own ships, but instead take a leaf out of the Pirates' book by stealing, from the Pirates, no less!

Nice job.

Heh, nice job mate *y* Pound Coins? Hmm, The South Essex could demand transport, acquire the bounty and return it to me so that when I go to Center Parcs I have plenty of coins for the arcade!

Blast! I just monologued! Taxi! To the Copa Cavana and step on it!

Let me see if I heard right... You're complaining because Imperials stole from Pirates who are thieving scumbags themselves? Who cares about the feelings of pirates... :-P

Wig, my men are from the South of Essex. They think bars an pubs that have sawdust on the floor for the blood are posh, but wouldn't dream of wanting to set foot into them. These are men who know how to be dumb and intelligent AT THE SAME TIME. (Or, Boris Johnson of the Tory party. VOTE TORY!)

Also, one of the my Sgt Majors is a certain Edward Elizabeth Hitler...

Ah, so you must have nicked the freaking boat then.

"'ere, there's no hubcaps!"

"Stuff it! Take the entire flaming thing and run for it!"

Blooming thieves. FLOG THEM! FLOG THEM I SAY! FLOG THEM RAW AND THEN SOME! AND THEN HANG THE THIEVING LITTLE WRETCHES! BY GOD MAN!

Hey Admiral, was this ship going to be your treasure ship that you had started a thread on a while ago?

If so, it's nice to see you've completed your ship *y*

Also, this ship has been assimilated into row 32, column C in the Index of MOC Ships.

Welcome again to the index. *sweet*

Hahaha. I guess i invited the anti-scouser jokes.

And yes phred it is the rebuilt treasure ship from a while back, although if im honest the two ships i have switched roles and what was the treasure ship is now going to become my escort ship, if i ever get round to scrounging enough bricks to complete the hull.

I haven't as yet completed the inside of the captains cabin, all thats in there at the moment is 4 treasure chests full of standard lego gold. Proper minted are my men.

Got bored tonight and started on a little outpost for them too but time will tell if i ever get it to be how i want it to be!

I don't lug round

Lies!!! Tis no piggy bank!!!!

Tis a heavily armoured cargo vessel!!!!

What better way to stop the heathen barbarians and pirates from stealing the precious tax moneys then by melting all the gold and silver into collossal 'coin' shapes. Thus eliminating pilfering by any pirates as they can't lift the treasure!!!!
