The " Going Merry"

26 posts in this topic

Hi everyone... I didn't know where to put this creation, but as it's a ship, a pirate ship, I'm going to put it here!

This is the first ship of the Luffy's Crew in the manga " one piece" , see more here : one piece wiki

I did it for an exhibition but also because I'm a great fan of the manga, so I think it's the only moc i'll not destroy it !

anyway, here it is:

Fantastic work Guss! I love the detail in this ship. It has a comic feel to it and it is fun to look at. You did a magnificent job there buddy, keep it up. :pir-wink:

It strikes fear into my heart...

Nice ship! It really does look comical! The way you did the masts is good, and that ram's head is quite interesting!

great work! :thumbup:

Very nice work, Guss! This ship resambles the one in the manga/anime very well. The details are awesome, such like the figurehead and and the cool shapes on the ship. The sail is very good, I like it. Are you also planning on making your own One Piece figures?

Very nice ship Guss ! I like the custom sails and flags.

By the way, what the scale of the ship ? I guess it's not minifig scale ? Is it the same scale as your previous boat ?

thanks a lot Captain Zuloo and Admiral M

Thanks a lot Matn, I'm planning on making a Minifig scale Going merry with crew and detailed interior, but It ll be a very long term project, it surely will be over in 3 years (or maybe more! ) so yes I'm planning to make the minifig, but not now^^

Thanks a lot ma louloute! ^^ the ship is at a strange scale ^^ it's smaller than minifig, you can see it scale on this WIP pic : http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3396/350337...cb5f2ce26_b.jpg

Very original to make a ship this way! It really has that manga-feeling over it and it made me think of Link's ship in 'Zelda phantom hour glass'. The anchor is also nice, I might steal the idea :pir-sweet: It's a very fearsome ship :pir_laugh2: btw, is there a small GARDEN in the back of the ship?!? :pir_wacko::pir-classic:

A garden to harvest fruits to avoid getting disease on the ship. :pir-tongue:

Great ship Guss! The thing which stands out for me is the hull, I´ve never seen a ship in this style.

Good job on the headrails! :thumbup:

I only don´t like the red/white striped tricorne sail at the back. Perhaps it´s better to make a white one instead.

thanks you two^^

YnyklY , this ship is from a manga, and as you can see here : Going_merry.jpg

there is some fruit trees at the back ( mandarin trees ) , they belong to the navigator of the ship, a memory of her childhood.

Cap'n Blackmoor, I didn't have the choice of the colours scheme as I recreated the ship ^^ thanks for the hulls, I had some difficulty to recreate it, but it turned well !

Hi guys I am a great fan of one piece thank you for making this. I have looked all over for a Going Merry moc and this is the best so far. I have made some mini figures from the one piece world and maybe i shall post them on here later. I got into doing my current moc pirate king stuff because of one piece and will post some pics of my fleet as soon as I finish the sails for the flagship. But I must ask you are you going to do the Strawhats' new ship the thousand sunny

Hi Guss,

this is an interesting ship and a great MOC! :pir-classic:

Did you modify the front hull piece, by adding studs on the side?

Kind regards,

Teddy

This is great! It looks like it came straight out of a manga. :pir-classic: The bow is very interesting, and the ram figurehead is hilarious. :pir_laugh2: I look forward to your minifig scale version, even if it takes a while. :pir-laugh:

Commodore Hornbricker : Thanks a lot, I like my anchor too and I think I'll reuse it for another ship!

Thanks a lot Zorro and Joey Lock ^^

thanks a lot captain hook, it's good to see there's other one piece's fan here! to answer yoru question, I am on the big project on making this one minifig scale + the thousand sunny minifig scale to with working "dock system", and a detailed interior for the two ships , but right now I don't have the parts to do it so I think it's a very long term project ^^

and yeah, please show us your custom minifigs ^^

thanks Teddy, I never modify parts, I HATE parts modification, the front hull just have a sticker put in it, easily removable. I photographied the size of the ship then photoshoped a little to makes it looks good then printed it on stickers , and put it on the hull , so I can remove it without damaging the hull ^^

Thanks Millacol88 ^^ I think it'll take more than a while :pir_laugh2: but when I'll start it, I'll show some WIP pics! ^^

A fancy creation IMO, Guss! Looks cool :pir-wink:

Fine rigging and many lovely details everywhere!! My favourite features are the bow and the mandarin trees! :pir-laugh:

Very good rendition of the original, must have been quite a challenge. But the mandarins are actually tangelo's as far as I know :pir-wink:.

I'm looking forward to the minifig scale version. Also any chance we might see a thousand sunny one day?
