This forum is a great source for pirate builders so I thought I'd add my recently completed British Frigate to the fleet- I know I referred to the moc data-base quite a bit as I was working on it.

Its meant to be a British frigate from the Napoleonic era, though I suppose its a bit under armed for a frigate (18 guns)

-also I thought I'd point out that I'm member 10,000, do I win a prize? :pir-laugh:

Stunning, kv_d! I think you pulled this one off really well, especially the bow! Can't wait to see more from you!

What a lovely sloop you have. I am particularly fond of the stern gallery, and what an elegant solution with the brick built, furled sails. Over all a great look, and a great job!

A Very nice job on this frigate, I love all the detail you put into it. The bow is excellent, and the rigging is very good as well. Nicely done, and keep bricking :thumbup:

The ship looks great! And it is also quite unique because you made the sails from LEGOs! I just love it!  :pir-classic:

The deck is just snotted white bricks- the only non-lego element here is the string.

Well it looks like a very good frigate another piece of competition for bluecoats(oh boy another one?).It's not the toughest lobsterback boat, then again not the weakest.
anyway good MOC
In the begging there was only 3 men one liked the color red ,another liked the color blue,and the last one liked the color green.Then they found some coats and started hitting each other.That's how war was made.
I will only have respect for redcoats when they actually make a "General Redwater's amazing bleach!"

She is beautiful and very original especially the stern.  I hope you make a few more ships based on the same style.
