What a truely wonderful design.  This might be the best brick built ship I have ever seen in terms of capturing the classic lego feel.  This thing just screams classic lego.  I imagine if that new little builder pirate set grew up into a missive ceation this would be it.  Awsome job!  It is very impressive. :thumbup:  :thumbup:

This is huge and in my opinion the best ship I have seen without the hull pieces. Great Job.  :pir-wub:

Nice!
I see some influences of the Batavia, the shape is quite the same. :pir-blush:
The ship is very well built, and as Hornbricker said it captures the classic LEGO feel.
I also really like your rigging! :thumbup:

Unfortunately it sails for the pirates, so I have to sink it or capture it when I meet it at sea. :pir-laugh:

Amazing, as those before me have said this is probably one of the best brick built ships I have ever seen!

The Jolly Roger built at the back is a nice touch! Just wow. I am speechless, so I will be back to add more later.

Even though it is made up of mostly "basic bricks", it looks wonderfull. Seems like it could be a model for a store display.

Very cool! I like the different designs that LEGO fox has brought to the table.

I would like to make some smaller ships out of brick only so that I cant have merchants, etc... running around my port so that it doesnt look like its only military.

This is a REAL pirate ship, it's got the classic lego feeling (like some people said before) and the classing pirate feeling over it. The stern didn't really scare me, but it looks very nice as well :pir_laugh2:

That´s a very nice shi¨you´ve build there Fox.
The hull is well done and so is the stern. The colors work well together. :thumbup:

I would like it better if you made the masts from Lego pieces, but that´s personal i think.
And may i enquire why you make the sails out of plastic?
Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

The build a frigate tutorail!

I too wood prefer lego mastes and yardes, but when all I biuld in is to scale with the miny figs partes are fuw and the demand is grate and prices are high. so I've alwayes had to improvizes.  I got the ideya for the cerve from the La Mort Royal by Captain Green Hair before I was a member of the site so I feel a thankes is in order for you ser.  As for tha sailes,  I wonted somthing permenent and inxspensive.  I will admite that fabrick wood fit the bill, but I also nedded somthing waterprof and disposibal.  So after a liteal recon I fownd a store with disposibal party tabel covers in several collers and on sale.  Pluse when you know you will ned the partes of the bout for other projects cutting that much fabrick seemes to be a wast.  Even when you reyous everything inclooding the riging.

Commodore Hornbricker the second one is the calpret.  Almost a perfict mach.  The model I got looked axsactly like that only with black sails and the uper porthion of the aft casel was black insted of red.  Isent that Capten Hooks ship from Peter Pan?

Yes I believe that is the Jolly Roger.

Yes, you did a great job in capturing the classic look.  To me it doesn't look like a very battle efficient. :pir-grin:  But on the other hand, who cares?  :pir_laugh2:  One thing i also noticed was how the bow has a very high curve to it, which looks somewhat odd, and takes an element of realisticness out of it. ~LW 8~
