Hello all Lego pirate fans!
I bring you my latest ship, the seventeen cannon treasure ship of the Spanish Armada!
Posted Image
It may be quite inaccurate, well it is Lego!

All the sails are custom made with string and use my sewing skills!(:pir-sceptic:)This is my most ambitious rigging i've used to date.

Sunset at the Lego Spanish main.

I made the deck have different shades of brown for accuracy.

So that is my new ship, C+C is very welcome!

Outstanding work! The bright red color is a real eyecatcher.

Is any interior accessible? I'd love to see pictures of the cabin etc.

It might be due to the perspective, but the sails look kinda small, don't they?

I really like it. The red colour represents the old Spanish Armada well. :pir-classic: I like what you have done with the bow, we don't see that kind of bow on many prefab hull ships. Sails and rigging look good to me.

Any chance on having a picture of the stern? :pir-sweet:

Sail to My Brickshelf or to My MOCpages, or my Flickr Photostream!
