Ahoy matey's,

I've updated my original frigate with a few changes.

Biggest change is the two extra guns in the front:

Second i've made some ''arms'' to lower the sloop:

I've made her 2 studs smaller, so the tumlehome is much better:

I made the headrails a bit shorter:

And i made a little sign below the stern were i could have put her name:

I regret to say that she didn''t survive my hunger for bricks, i hope you enjoyed these final shots!
I have some large pixel shots, if you would like these for inspirational purpouses send me a PM.

Cheers,
Captain green hair

You're a crazy man! You've destroyed a masterpiece...  :pir-cry_sad:

She looked good, right to the end.

Takes a moment of silence.

So, what's your next big plan for those parts?

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

So you really dismantled her.... :pir-cry_sad:  :pir-cry_sad:  :pir_bawling:

Too bad, too bad.
Ah well, like admiral Vilerhard would say: I'd rather see her gone than in the hands of the French!

At least her pics will be preserved eternally in all her glory on Brickshelf!! :pir-cry_happy:

I've updated the paperwork for the Index of MOC Ships.

I also edited the first post of the first version of this ship to guide ppl to this thread if they ever get lost. :pir-laugh:

Hey all! It's been quite a while, hasn't it?

Well, I must say that I'm dissappointed on the destruction of this magnificent ship. I do hope you make sure that it's sacrifice isn't in vain, and build something awesome.
Just returned from a 3 or so year dark age, so just getting back into the swing of things. :)

Beautiful ship - Shame she's gone - but at least we got to see her before she was scuttled!

I hope that your scavenge for parts wasn't just because you found a seedier use for the well-endowed minifig from the stern!  :wink:

She was a nice ship but kudos to any LEGO fan who has the courage to canibalize any MOC to move forward to bigger and better things.  Green Hair, you're an excellent builder so it's nice to konw that whatever happens, the bricks from LE Requin will be put to good use.
