Sailing the Seven Seas with a small, but worthy vessel that will transport yer mechant material from one dock to the next.

For those of you that followed the WIP photos this was also called the Chibi Ship.

Great job.  The design it very cool, especially for a shorter ship.  It's so small but packed with detail.  I really like this ship and its possibly one of the very best small ship designs I have seen. :thumbup:

It looks very short, do you have a side profile shot so we can see the actual dimensions?

Short or not it looks good.  I love the finishing touch on the rear.

There are quite some details on this small vessel! :thumbup:
I like it, some ropes would be a nice finishing touch.

Very nice design but to make it even better maybe it needs a little colour to break up the brown.

This looks good, nice building tenchiques (very complex) and lovely details, like on te stern. The guy in the crow's nest is quite funny :pir-classic: But I think a flag in the crow's nest (like the top of the mast) would be a nice thing to add. Anyway, good ship! :thumbup:

So, the name is The Missing Anchor. Is there a storyline behind it why the anchor is missing?

Maybe that was all that was wanted when the pirates plundered it.  :pir_laugh2:

Very cool ship, lots of details.   :thumbup:

Well typically for a ship of this manor I would use the official LEGO anchor elements, but since mine was 'Missing' and has been for the past few months I was at a loss of what to do. I was also missing a name for the ship. The two ideas just seemed to merge into the title while explaining the missing anchor.

It looks good from what I can see, but I cant see the first picture. Is it possible that you could upload some photos to brickshelf?(the only lego picture site that actually works for me 100% of the time)  :pir-classic:

I like how the stern has some detail, but you didn't make it to extravagent so it still shows that it is a merchant-ish ship
