You have some very nice ships Kurt.

Great introduction!

I had already seen your irconclad on BS.

It's a real masterpiece.

I have build a version of the monitor myself some time ago, but didn't take any decent pictures yet.

hey do know what the part # is off the top of your head for that bucket on the end of your barrel?

That cannon's a beauty! 8-o

You should check out this cannon thread at EB for other ideas for cannons and carronades. Maybe even show off your cannon on there.

Your ships are amazing, all of them. But I really like the RTS LEGITOR, it's not like every other ship we see. People don't make steam boats it seems.

Thanks, I am glad you like my ships.

RTS LEGITOR was months of work, designing the cannons, figuring out the turret (which ofcoarse rotates), figuring out the hull .

So I am glad you enjoy it.

Messing around and taking pictures is a pain.

I spent time looking at every Passaic Class monitor picture I could find, and time at peeron trying to figure out how to do things, I filled a dozen pages in my Lego design notebook working out details.

I am glad you like the cannons, a lot time in those too. Read the lugnet thread and follow some of the links to the real cannons.

FYI:

"As far as I know, the guns at Filipstad are the only ones of their kind left in the world today. And what guns they are. Two 15-inch, cast-iron, muzzle-loaded smoothbores

is it possible for you to post the plans for the RTS Legomalee (I hope I spelled that right). I would like to know what materials are needed as well. I may want to construct a near copy if I ever get the money.

Also, who is the best brick supplier? (In Western USA).

Thanks. I am glad you enjoyed the RTS LEGITOR. But wait until you see the monster I am working on NOW!!

zavala.jpg

I need two of these WalkingBeamSteam.jpg modeled with Lego Pneumatics

I have the Pneumatics and the paddel wheels done, I have one walking beam part-way done I am missing parts to finish it (bricklink time) as well as make a second one. I need to make the towers and tie them into the hull .

Tons more work!!

I'll take pictures and upload them.

kurt

EDITING here ----

I am add a link to the finished work, incase any anyone wants to know.

There are no detailed plans, all you can do is look pictures, and at the cross-section in my pirate vignette.

Also, who is the best brick supplier? (In Western USA).

The one who has the parts I need at the lowest price? Is this a trick question?

Kurt,

Thanks for the info. I had seen your cannon a couple months ago and was very impressed.

Thanks for the part list. I have everything (i think) except the bucket X-D

(holy smokes are you thorough)

Cheapest.

Ah, you need help using bricklink!

Go to bricklink and enter the part you want click "Go!"

Lets say you entered a 3001 which is a "brick 2 x 4"

You sould see

http://www.bricklink.com/search.asp?q=3001

Now click Show More Filter Options

Now chose your country or Region put a dot there and pull-down the correct answer.

In the "Sort by" pull-down select "Lowest Price"

Click "Go!"

Now you should see the lowest priced parts in you Region/Country you might want to add a color you do that by typing in the "Search Within Results" entry window.

Hope this helps.

Thank you very much!!!

BTW Your moniter is truly the greatest LEGO steam vessel I've ever seen!

In the same category, I would like to someday build an Ironclad central battery vessel or an early armoured cruiser (right now, the Inflexible and the Riurik are possibilities). Right now I have a battleship constructed (will post pics soon), but what I have in mind is bigger.

However, my funds are short now, so this will be postponed.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to make a convincing turret of the period (1870-1920). Inflexible doesn't need them, but the Ruirik has a few.

My favourite ship in history.

Yesterday your favorite MOC was the Scimitar....

Mr Kurt, why did you build two cabins on the Legomalee?? The HMS Trinconmalee only has one...

And how did you slope the windows of the cabins??

You ask a good question, in http://news.lugnet.com/pirates/?n=4142 I said.

"the [frigate's] stern looked wonderfully low and sleek, with just the captains cabin below the quarter deck. And as the LNA (Lego Naval Architect) of the RTN I would have left it that way. However she (the RTS LEGOMALEE) is the largest ship the fleet and the Admiral needed a flag-cabin, so ...

Now she has a nice dramatic aft."

The truth is that low rear cabin on the frigate did look nice but when compaired to the rest of the fleet.

pic1

dsc01878.jpg

It looked to small. So I added the flag-deck cabin!

This let me built a stern castle with some height to it.

pic2

dsc00967.jpg

pic3

dsc00971.jpg

And how did you slope the windows of the cabins??

The kicked-out windows on both the RTS LEGOMALEE and the RTS SAN LEGONIO are 3 4 5 right triangles with the window in the middle of the 5 long side with a stack of 2 1x1 round and 1 1x1 cone bricks on each side of the window.

The stern's inverted sloped windows on the RTS LEGOMALEE,RTS SAN LEGONIO and the RTS REMEMBER the LEGAMO are 1 brick thick panel that is at the bottom hinged with a row of 4315.png4315 on the RTS LEGOMALEE this panel trapped at the top by a 1x16 row of plates attached to the underside of a larger plate. Look closely at pic2 on the far side as the inverted sloped panel comes to the top by the upper far white arch brick.

Hope this helps.

Yamato is my favourite ship in the real world along with the Soliel Royale and the Kirov.

But the Scimitar is my fav. LEGO one.

Plus I like the Legomalee a lot too.

Ah I see... Is there any interior to show??

I need to take more pics!

All the big ships have complete insides esp. the gun decks.

RTS LEGOMALEE

dsc00960.jpg

If you look below the two ships boats into the hole into the gun deck you will see: ladders on each end, the formast,

a barrel, a crewman, and ofcoarse 4 guns (of the 22 total on the gun deck 11 on each side) on their carages, with wheels, each tied off to the hull at each side of the gun port hole (4081b)

my pirate vignette shows this

pirate_vignette_03.jpg

http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=122331

It has the same cross-section as the LEGOMALEE and the decks are open except to the masts passing through.

And very short (just like the proto types!) No tall hat on minifig standing strait-up!

The captain's cabins (and the flag deck on the LEGOMALEE) also open, and nicely done, however I have never made any funishings for them, ie. desks chairs beds cabinets extra.

I recall seeing a captain's office somewhere (a search on lugnet I am sure)

I... I dunno how to put it, man. This is simply some of the most extrordinary Lego Pirate work i've ever seen. I'd say KUTGW but that wouldnt be good enough! I'm having trouble finding any flaws in much of anything. These are several very well researched and very well built peices. Well done!
