Looks like I've got some competition in the big boat division, looks really really good! I like the separation between the gun decks. Good proportions on the hull. I liked the errika too, the only thing I'm not sold on is the spars. they look a bit fat or something.

Egad George! This is going to be HUUUUUUUUUUGE!!!

Do you actually have the 500+ mini-figures to put in it, or is that just how big the ship will be built to accomodate?

Ah, there's been an update! Amazing LegoPirate, you sure have a great variety of bricks at you disposal!

I commented in your Khornes' thread too but it should be here too.

Welcome to Eurobricks LegoPirate!

*y* Your Soleil Royal looks great, and HUGE! Your a very clever builder, the gunports and mast use a very innovative snot technique. I wish you luck on this great endeavor and it looks like your photography skills have improved too!

P.S. there's another thread about a Soleil Royal, see it here.

as for the marker its sharpie

its not comming off

but its only lego

and it was a prototype

i have a plethera of old brown and some other colors

but when i prototype something out i generally use just one color and go back and write on the bricks

it helps me see what im doing

got some more done on the bow

more picts to come soon

Is there any chance of scaleing these images down to fit in the thread? It would be great if we could post some directly in the thread.

Anyway, as for the MOC... How big will it be when completed? What will the measurements be?

pictures.....

what size do i need to scale them down to

measurements are

somewhere between 200-250 studs long

52 studs across

masts are still being determined

but

im to use a sphere idea coined by bruce lowell

(heres his BS account)

http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=44794

this is a studs on all sides sphere

it will 10 studs across

and maybe if i can do math at all, about

125 bricks high

but those measurement are subject to change with the design

bricklink.com has been a great place to find parts

pictures.....

800 x 600 is an ideal size.

I'm not sure how good you are with the software but if you've got Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro, Fireworks, etc. you can do what's called a "batch resize" so you can resize all your images at once which is a lot faster than doing them individually.

If you don't have any programs capable of doing a batch resize just wait a week and I'll have written a tutorial for doing a batch resize in a freeware program called Irfanview.

But for now just resize one or two pictures so we can post them in the thread.

That's a big (and beautiful) ship you're building.

Will you put it on display somewhere or are you just building it for fun?

Do you still have the other ships that are in your brickshelf folder or are you reusing the parts?

thanks

i hope i will be able to put it on display at

Legoland California

when im all done

i have all the stuff in my pirates folder on BS

on display at legoland california

and as for using parts from me other ships

that us just not right

all are still intact

i just buy more lego

the only part that gets moved is my captain

he gets moved from ship to ship

i think that he is an admiral at this point

starting with isabelle the smallest of the fleet

moving him on to erreka the medium boat

and now the great Man o War (ive not settled on a name yet) the largest and grandest

has to be the admirals ship

cant get pictures to be resized my computer at home

it wont let me, so ill try tomorrow at work

but check out me progress at

http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=209149

enjoy

Your treasure horde is quite impressive, I would post an image of it but that would blow the thread out of proportions at the moment so I'll do it after you've resized the images.

In a couple more days I'll do that Irfanview tutorial so everyone know how to use a free batch image resizing program.

Do you have some 'special connections' in Legoland California to get your ships displayed or do you just knock at the door and say: "Hey, I build a new ship, can I put it on display in your park please"?

It must be really weard, to build a ship and not have it with you afterwards in your house.

Well, I guess it is a great honor to have your MOC on display in Legoland.

i guess you could say i do have "special connections" ;-)

i have many friends who work there in the legoland model shop

i can also come and go as i please there.....

but the case that i have at legoland was just a bonus, the shop's boss allowed me to have

their Pick-A-Brick is pretty good

i have cleaned them out of most of their old brown to build me ships *sweet*

(the discount is a great thing to have)

speaking of PAB

i just got some more yellow and black windows

for the stern of me boat

anybody got any name ideas ye can suggest?

im leaning toward

something spanish-ishy?

also how can i get more uploading space so i can post more picts?

the last one used almost all me space

ha ha ha
