Fvin has built this awesome ship, based around the skeleton minifigs' components and their horses...

That's a true masterpiece!!
What a patient that guy must have.
Great design. Very creative.
We must have him here!

What does strike me though, is how low the oars are.
I'd expect that particular part to be under the waterline.

Wow, nice! At least someone found a use for those skele horses... *sweet*

Would look better with skeletons (instead of regular pirates) in my opinion, but sweet design and size, anyway.

Why thank you SlyOwl, but I always leave the pressganging...  Errr... recruiting to others...

Yes, that is a hint for someone to go and contact him.   :-D

Here's an innovative way to "smuggle" a Castle Skeleton Horse into  the Pirate theme.

Hmmmm....  Now that gives me an idea for the "A Pirate's Life" competition...

Now for my views:
-Awesome
-Great use of parts :thumbup:
-Great colour scheme
-I'm not too sure that a live crew is the best idea :pir-tongue:
-Just look at this broadside! :pir-oh3:

Now I ain't no pirate expert, but that's one damn fine looking ship there. I love the way the skeletons and horses are incorporated into ship. It's brilliant.

A fascinating work and a great find, thanks SlyOwl. I´m really impressed with all that creativity, and I especially like the bow of this great ship.  :jollyroger: on!  :pir-laugh:

Not a fan of the cannons either, but hey, the rest is mind blowing.

Hi all,
I am Fvin, the designer of this skeleton pirate ship. I am so happy to note the discussions of my creation in this prestigious AFOL forum. Thanks so much for the notification & invitation from SlyOwl too!

The ship was designed for a gathering of Lego Fans in HongKong, April 2008. As there are some members of less than 10 years old, I cannot say it is an AFOL gathering at all. =P

The ship took me almost 30 hours to build, 2 weeks to complete. It was my desire to use Skeleton Warriors as sailors or replacing the sailors' head with skulls. But finally I chose to use normal sailors for this ship so as not to make this ship too horrible to some young members.

This is the first time I build a pirate ship. I think there are still many places to improve. Please feel free to comment and suggest anywhere to improve. Thank you!!

Just one question to all of you. Could anybody figure out the meaning of the sign on the canvas sail? ;-)

Regards,
Vincent

It's mind-boggling! I can't work it out, no matter how much I tried! It looks pretty cool upside-down, with the E looking like a person :pir-laugh:

Woa i missed this one, but thanks to our great newsletter i am looking at it now!

Very creative, nice colorscheme and i actually like the life crew.
They could be really dark, evil guys that had no money for wood and butchered a vilage just to make a new ship :jollyroger:
