Historic Ships, Replicas, Figureheads, and Models
What is this index for?
This index is to provide not just inspiration, but also the possibility to link the pictures to threads on the forums, for example when discussing a MOC or giving advice. You want to know how the real old sailing ships look like? This is the place for you!
How is this indexed?
The Historic Ships, Replicas, Figureheads, and Models Index is sorted by Historic Ships, Replicas, and Figureheads.
Anyway you can help?
You can help by giving suggestions and informing us about items that have not been indexed. You can ask questions, give suggestions, and inform us about items that have not been indexed in this very topic. If you would like to contribute to the index, please follow these instructions:
Ships added to the index should be either historic, surviving examples or well-built, decently accurate replicas (i.e. build according to plans or a wreck). Beware: Ships like the Golden Hind or the Grand Turk replica are fantasy products for the most part!
In case someone has 25+ nice, sharp pictures of one showing the most important parts of such a ship (you can never have too many ) you can go ahead and make a thread in the pirate forum and I'll make sure it gets linked here. You can also upload picture from Wikipedia or Wikicommons, but beware the copyright restrictions!
Alternatively you can post a comment that you have pics here and someone else will make a thread out of it.
When posting a new thread please make sure that it doesn't get bumped to the top again by adding these two lines to the first post:
Also put "INDEX: Historic Ships" or "INDEX: Replica Ships" in the title and "Please do not reply directly to this thread" in the subtitle.
