This is really excellent, I don't know how you can have the vision and the patience to create something this huge and detailed!

Thanks for the kind words guys! :pir-cry_happy:

Maybe one day we will be able to display our mini-fig scale vessals toghether in a special lego sailing event? :pir-wink:

Me, mr. Errorist and perhaps even mr. Tiber are planning to display at Legoworld Zwolle 2009.

You are welcome to join us in the revolution, the return of pirates, the overtaking of LW! :pir-grin:

It's really shaping up to be a true masterpiece Cap'n! :pir-wub:

That hull is absolutely stunning! The tiles give it a very smooth look.

Those interior bits are also magnificent!!

I can't wait till you start with the top of the ship!

Excellent...!

Nice job on the bow Captain :thumbup:

Seems like you won't be needing 10+ versions to make it work :pir-tongue:

The furniture is looking really nice as well.

Impressive stuff. Keep it up

Im looking foward to this! I recently accquired for my Birthday a Pirateology book:

61%20XkUJXScL._SS400_.jpg

Its about a Captain who has captured a Pirate Captain Carlton and in exchange the Pirate agreed to tell him about a Pirates Life.

I also got a Model ship which is supposed to be Captain Carltons "Swiftbuck" its a Ducth Merchant ship, the model was sent to the Governer to see when the ship comes into port.

phreds Halloween Ship was a massive inspiration.

After a three weeks vacation one needs some time to try to keep up with things, I missed the update of this beautiful ship.

This is really going into the right direction, I could not really visualise in my head the way you wanted to make the hull upside down with plates and tiles, but now that I see it I love it! :pir-wub:

I expect the need of many, many Bricklink orders....

I'll be following this project.

By the way: congratulations with moderator-hood mr. Green Hair! You seemed to have careened your way through the ranks rapidly. :pir-sweet:

Another one with the salary of a secretary-of-state (US edition)...

Man Id wish I could build one like them but I dont know how to start, and although I have dozens of guns and soldiers, I barely have any bricks besides the one of my sets.

It is looking really cool though, and since I am belgian, I will support for you ! The Prins Willem and the HMS Victory...We are sure being treated well these times.

I believe there is a tutorial for this somewhere. Not on EB or C-P, but I think a web search might be useful.
