As many of you are aware, Mystery Ship, the latest Eurobricks mystery adventure is in progress.  I've provided some "Behind the Scene" Images in this thread:  See the Sets.

As a building challenge, if you'd like to attempt to try building one of the rooms aboard the Sea Ghost, and it comes out well, I will incorporate your MOC into the story.  This is just for fun, but would add a great element of realism to the story.  Think of the various rooms that would make up a cargo ship.

Post your MOCs here.

I shared an image of this room on another thread, but here's Chef Otto's galley:

Hum, this sounds like fun.  I'll try to make a part of the Engine room.  That is as long as Sinner doesn't mind ;-)

Just make sure it is realistic and doesn't have an unlimited power source. You know I don't like those!  :-D

I'll take the transporter room!

Wait, I'm getting my stories mixed up.

*whacks Sinner with a dilithium crystal* :-P

Now, where were we? Oh yes, building. I'm not sure I've "seen" enough of the ship at this point to adequately construct it. I do, however, have a firm grasp on the fog. It's in my brain.  *wacko*

Think I'll keep "watching" before I try building anything. I do like that galley a lot though, especially since it's so well outfitted with potential weapons ;-)

Shadows is looking for stalkers. Yep, you heard me right. CLICKY!

Noooo, not  a dilithium crystal! They have to be the most overused plot device of the original series.  :-|

This does sound like fun. I just hope I'm not stuck with the janitorial closet once I come up with an idea.  :-P

Well I don't know about realistic, I've never been in an engine/boiler room Mr. Navy  :-|   I wanted to make it somewhat greebled without being TOO greebled.  Anyway I threw this together in about an hour so sorry if it sucks  :-$

Here's the overall shot:

Me too, I'm not seeing any of those. Leads me to ask something I've meant to ask for a while. What does IPB Image mean on these boards?

8-  8-  8- I love this! J, you know your building almost always impresses me and I really like this. Nice use of bley-grey on the wall, too. I love the grated floor and I swear I can hear the engine purring and whirring! :-| (<--at me, not you) Sweet, sweet, sweet!

We'll just have to see what EB's resident engine b!itch, Sinner thinks of it...that's the true test! *sweet*

Wow! I love it.  *sweet* That is pretty darn good for an hour or so. I like the Enterprise as well. (Which one is it? ;-) ) I would still be sorting bricks if I was making it... :-$ My only complaint is it looks too clean!  :-P

I was going to reply earlier but I decided that I wanted to post some engine room photos to demonstrate. However, it turns out that they are all film photos.  >:-( The best I could find was a shot of some valves and lagging.  :-$

That combined with the other picture you showed makes me want to redo it :-D  I could probably do the pipes better, but I've been so busy lately  *wacko*   As for clean...well, we DO have a janitor here, don't we? X-D

The galley is just phenomenal.  It looks cramped and real, I love the wood beams at the top *wub*  The map and the net are great details also, it just looks so REAL, the people on the ship...er, "we" have it good X-D

J (I can call you that, right?  8-| ) I love that engine room! It looks great!

Brickster, Amazing gallery. Looks so real.

The way Hinckley is drinking the whiskey maybe I should make a miniature onboard pub.  :-D

Ooops!  :-$  We're in trouble now.... Well, I really like it. I thought it was there as a reference and had already been discussed so I didn't comment on it. Sorry. Like SW4J I think the overhead beams are a nice touch, and the lights and decorations are excellent.... but it all looks too wooden to me. I think it would suit a sail boat better.

I'm in even more trouble now, aren't I?

Adults who collect and build Lego - then play Murder Mysteries with them - does this really surprise you?  I would not expect anything different.   :-D

In any case, I know whose dying first >:-) .
