British Bomb Vessels

10 posts in this topic

Hello again,

when I read C.S. Foresters Hornblower novels I was intrigued by the bomb vessels he commands during the time of Napoleon's war against Russia.

However, I was never sure what they would look like.

So, I have made up my mind. And created huge mortars. And very small ships to carry them.... :-)

This is probably historical nonsense, but I had a sufficient amount of fun.

So, here they are, the pseudo-british bomb vessels:

The mortar is probably too massive for such a small ship:

.. and where to put the ammunition?

I probably chose not to care :-)

Take care,

till next time,

I've never heard about them but it sounds very interesting. And your models look very good, they're small but detailed.

This is a proper Lego masterpiece. I love that infantile look because it fits so well with how i looked at lego when i first discovered it.

The (soccer)balls in the Grand Emporium come to mind as ammunition, but then in black of course.

....I read C.S. Foresters Hornblower novels

An excellent series of books and a good looking series of MOCs.

Thanks for sharing!

Hi Michaelozzie,

thanks for finding a real bomb vessel - obviously these things need to have a longer body/hull.

However, I like the idea that everyone has to stay in the back of the ship in order to stabilize the thing :-)

Nice build but isn`t the cannons a little too big for the ship it might topple over in rough seas.
