It looks a bit too brown for my taste.

But maybe this is normal for a medieval ship?

It has all the elements, I am just not sure if any of them are complete! In terms of the brown, the camera is also making it look like a lighter brown than it really is I think. Maybe in its real life darker state it isn't as... brown... ;) heehee

I have always very much admired this ship, a completly brown ship, too me, looks more realistic..I do not like the use of ladders as railings though, it looks sloppy and not too solid. good ship though.

Do you know a good alternative for the ladders?

Wood is brown...Ships are made of wood, some ships in the Pirate era were also brown, but there aren't so much MOC's made in brown. The ships were oftenly painted..

Now, over to the ship..

I actually like the fact it's brown! It looks quite realistic. I like the sail configuration, but they look a bit too white to me. The design is very nice. Typicly for the ships from this era is the bonaventura mast(I don't know if it's called like that it English(it's the fourht mast)), a very nice detail.

If someone wanted to build a more historically accurate MOC how would they make a wooden ship without being too brown?

Are exotic birds normal for medieval ship? Look a the birdie on the bow!

This here ship was made by a fellow known as Jonathan, son of Josh W, a member of this site along with others, most promently being Classic Castle.

I like this ship and the use of the ladders is nice but I don't like the pastelle blue peices and such used on the deck. The overall look is very original.

Do you think he'd be interested in discussing his MOC with us?

It's a nice and cool ship. Though, the bird does throw the color contrast way off the scale.

This indicates that the ship was sailing in tropical seas when this picture was taken ;-)

Possibly. Since he hasn't visited our site in a while (sine June 3rd) I could go and contact him on another site he's more active at, good idea?

Aye, it's a good idea! If he comes back, he could confirm if it's already took apart or not. If not he could take pictures...

By using some paint.

The English had a yellow boarder around their ships.

But probably the real medieval ships were just brown without any paint.

I was looking at some pictures in google, and those old ships were all brown.

Are you gonna paint your lego? :S

Only the warships had... Speaking about English warships, I gonna start with my first brick-built-hull ship ASAP, an English one... It will be a brig...

No Sir, I was talking about colored bricks (yellow, red,...) that are not brown.

I hope you make a progress thread!?

Is the name now Count Tiber or can we still can you Mr. Tiber :)

I actually expected you would become a Fellow in stead of a count when you reach 1000 posts....

Can anyone explain this ranking system?
