This is the first version of the project, back when it was just a WIP and look how nice it turned out,

First ship ever, with remote controlled cannons and hatches,
It was a very fun project to make, alot of blood sweat and money, but its all worth it.
And i did achive some personal goals, that i always wanted to make, here is some of them,

First Person in the world to make the remote controlled system :Check
Make riggins attach at outside of the railing at small platforms, (just like real ships):Check
Make railing in diffrent hight levels :Check
Make the Deck in diffrent hight levels :Check
Make a bending bow: Check
Make light in the cabin :Check  
Make cabin windows in transparrent bricks: Check
Make most of the railing in transparrent bricks, (which creates a Glowing effect, like shown at the first picture) :Check


And if you can figure just how many transparrent green and yellow bricks i've used, then you can tell me, cause I dont have a clue.

Some credit has to go to Sebeus I, who did inspire me with he's version of the RC cannons,
(But that was only a WIP, that he couldnt make fit into a ship, entirely,
So ive used he's idea, made it more compact, made it fit into an actual ship,
And I also gave it hatches.  
Never the less he deserves some credit,

Enjoy and leave me your comment, at this amazing vessel,

Nice! Especially the shot at 1:19 is awesome. You could make a great scene with that, like here at 1:32.
I also like the fancy disco lights in the cabin. There could be great parties going on in there :drunk:

yea alot of people told me that actualy hehe, but theres one problem, they wouldnt have anywhere to party at, (the only "fail" this moc has, is the lack of interior, which had to be sacrificed for the electronic brain,

and it was the plan the whole time to make it do that effect, it wasent easy but i worked it out, i do have to mention that, the effect reaches its climax, when the battaries are nearly dead, then they go up one by one nice and slowly,

Excellent ship with great details, Morthen! The only thing that I think could be improved are the gears on the sides of the ship. I managed to overcome that problem on my ship with motorized cannons by using some worm gears on 1x4 tooth plates, hidden in the middle of the ship. (Here's the video
of it)

When I saw those hatches open I couldn't help but be in awe, it's great to see a frigate with working hatches! Very well done indeed, I also really like the idea of making transparent windows rather than using the regular old window pieces. Congrats!

It's a splendid vessel to be sure - very robust!  Wouldn't want to go up against that in me dinghy.

But it doesn't look very golden or whalish.  The figurehead is a mermaid - it would be better if it was a whale for the namesake of the ship.

If you take a look at the bow, then you get the sensation of why i call it "whale" Because of the round bow, and because of its massive size.

And "Golden" Because well......it contains alot of gold parts.
Normaly i name my ships after the idol. for example: Grim Reper, Mermaids Trident, ETC.

But this one is named according to how it looks,

I did look at the bow but I didn't get a whale sensation... I'm not even drunk.

UH OH!!!  My mind has entered the Twilight Zone!

You used yellow instead of real gold though.   :pir-tongue:
