MOC: HMS Phoenix

7 posts in this topic

[pid][/pid] 139C

Hello again. Recently, a friend of mine who was going off to college gave me custody of his old LEGO sets. This gave me a great chance to have some fun building new structures and such. However, my most proud creation is my fleet's new flagship:

HMS Phoenix

I got the design out of my head, and decided to make it a brig, just because my fleet is made of small, fast ships to intercept enemy ships. Also to train sailors for His Majesty's Navy.

The Headpiece:

(It's not a parrot! It's a phoenix!)

The crew at work:

The officers:

(The Lieutenant and Commodore Marius Gloriosus)

The Sailors:

(The one at the right end is the ship's cook.)

The Marines and the cannon:

Thank you for looking in. As always, comments and questions are appreciated.

Always entertaining, always inspiring, always:

That hull, it floats ?

I would really love to see it floating in some water :pir-sweet:

I'm pretty sure that the hull floats, however, I don't want to show it. It may leave a gunpowder ring in the tub. :pir_laugh2:

Well aren't you a lucky sod! Exactly how much LEGO did you acquire?

Sometimes it seems there's too much emphasis on producing the largest most heavily armed ship possible, it's good to a smaller vessel from time to time.

Of course! Rendering a brick built phoenix at that size would be a complete bitch - but you still should have tried anyway! :pir-tongue:

An heck of a lot, to be exact.

Or in my case, every time. :pir_laugh2:

And what's the difference between a parrot and phoenix anyhow? Besides the plumage, and the flames, and the talking.
