Once again, a Brickshelf find! These are some nice ships. Folder description: "Modellbaumesse 2007 in St_Poelten". These are from Austria LUG, as mentioned by Hobbes.

This white one(Limienschiff)  is very nice.

That side window of the yellow one (Frigate) is fabulous!
Posted Image

Side two of the two ships.
Posted Image

A governers' mansion? I hope so. Looks nice. Mr. B, think you'd be interested in this one ;-) !
Posted Image

I like  these two ships. They're very ornate. That one is my favorite.

Edit: My appologies, here is the folder : Clicky!

Edit 2: More pictures from Hobbe's link. Thanks for the translation and info Hobbes! And I fixed some information as well as the thread title.

That white/brown ships look very good. I would like some close-up pics but I guess they don't exist.
The mansion is a bit bigger than my version :-D.
And it has such an impressive garden.

I've added "Modellbaumesse 2007" to the title of this thread since I assume thats where these MOCs were on display.  If that's incorrect or anybody has more information don't hesitate to inform!

Very interesting.... It seems that this fair was near my hometown....
Thanks for that information, nice folder.
There´s a site (in german language) from the two organizers of that
LEGO part of that model fair.... but there´s not much information anyways.

The brown/white ship is stunningly beautiful! Although I don't like the colour-scheme. If this ship was in yellow and black, it would be even more beautiful. The other ship is also a fine one. And the mansion is also great.

I think the white on really forwards towards a real ship. It kind of bulges out, and has many things a ship of these ages would. So, I really think this is one of the best Minifig Ships I have ever seen, besides Legopirate's giant one.

Welcome back Mr. Tiber! We be missing you!

You're right.
The only thing I think he could do to make it look even better is giving the fore-mast an extra sail. Other than that (besides the colour-scheme) it is great.

This one is okay, but I am not a huge fan.  the main mast is WAY too tall and I don't like the sails.  The side window is nice, but I think the stern castle is a little too tall.

I like the brown/white one much better.  It looks like it is using brown and rown though.  I would also like a close up before making any official judgements on it!

Modellbau = modeling/model building
Messe = fair

Those are pics from a "modeling/model building fair" at St. Pölten, near Vienna, Austria, titled Wunderwelt Modellbau ("Wonder world of modeling/model building"; German only, though).

The models are from members of Austria's LUG. They also did this exhibition and a few more.

Here's the member gallery, there should be some more pics of the models displayed: http://gallery.lugnet.at/

ImperialScouts,

I see you wrote Limienschiff, but it has to be Linienschiff (meaning ship of the line).
And since you also wrote frigate instead of fregatte, why don't you just write ship of the line? :-$

Just a friendly suggestion.

I have to say, those brickshelf finds are getting better and better!

Linienschiff is what I have on the topic title. Writing 'ship of the line' would make the title to long, and I figured fregatte would be frigate, correct me if I am wrong.

Well, by the url's of the images, the white one was called Linienschiff and the yellow one fregatte.

I didn't think about that. Sorry!
Anyway, you can also write "Lineship" I think that's also a correct term. I have a pirate game where one of the ship types is Lineship, it has about the same size and armament as this ship, so I think it's correct...
And yes, fregatte is frigate. *sweet*

Linienschiff: Ship of the line, or lineship I guess...

Thank you Mister Hobbes!  I assume you were the one who updated the thread title.

Not quite, Mr Scouts changed the title but he wrote Limienschiff instead of Linienschiff. So I changed it to Linienschiff.

So nope, nobody hacked me!

Ah yes, he's a Fellow so he can edit titles of the threads he creates.

But anyway...

Mmmmm, it will be a bit different. Mine is a bit more modest .
Besides, this garden is too big for Joshua to maintain ;-).
You might accuse me of something :-D .
