Well, this is my lastest MOC. It`s some kind of hanseatic town so I placed topic here.
About the MOC?
Part of hanseatic town (Elbląg in Poland) with harbour, merchants houses and merchants guild.
The ship was mainly inspired by hanseatic cogs - LINK

This is really cool - I´ve never seen anything like this:
The houses and the market place are very nice, but the ship beats all!
Your cog is awesome. How you made the brick built sail... I´m speechless.
For those who haven´t had a look at his BS-folder: Watch out for the minifigs.
The "medieval" trousers are another ingenious way of building.

I really like the way the left building has been build. I think I get the technic but am not sure.
Then the brick-built sail. The first one I see and the best thing is that it doesn't look too thick.
Again my compliments.

I'm a big fan of your buildings, the merchant's guild looks awesome!
The ship is even cooler, I have never seen a sail like that, and it turned out really, really good!
The rest of the cog is somewhat boxy but I think you've done a great job on the ship.
I like the cart on the square too. The docks are also really nice but I should also cobble the stairs to the jetty.

This is another great masterpiece Kris! You amaze me with the time and intricacy that has gone into this town, ship, and figures!
I love the piece intensive walls on all of the buildings, even down to the chimney.
Here is a pic of the ingenious figures. Kris could you explain what the grey pieces are to me please?
Once again, truly a masterpiece!

I wonder though, how he fixed them to the feet.

I`m in work so I don`t have much time.
Quickly - This minifigs wasn`t my idea. All glory goes to mijasper and his Sir Francis Drake minifig.
For me it`s the best minifigure ever
I used this technique in my - Imperial Barracks. It`s so lovely that I will probably never get bored using this.

I'm also hugely impressed with the sail - very clever technique.
Great work !

Just add an assassin on the clock tower and make a glider for him!

I really like how you combined colors and texturing to give it an authentic look.
I especially like how you used "standard" (studs up) techniques to give the merchants guild a beautifully textured exterior.
Is there an interior of the buildings as well?
Posted 08 June 2009 - 04:44 PM
I really it!
It looks very realsitic and offers a lot of interesting scenes and details!
The most I like the tower.
Very, very well done!
Posted 08 June 2009 - 07:25 PM
The cog is my absolute favorite. Amazingly done that one
Same question as Teddy though, do the buildings feature an interior?
Very good work indeed

Btw, why is the sail on the boat blowing forward while the smaller flags on the crow's nest are blowing backward? ;)

The ship is sailing so fast the apparent wind is directed backwards.
