This may look chaotic now but I can garantee that once I layed the deck everything will be hidden and it will look like an ordinary pirateship.

I recently bought Queen Anne's Revenge but instead of a bow and stern hull part it had two bow parts  :thumbdown:  .
So I used the old hull parts which have holes in bow and stern (like the Caribbean Clipper).
The holes in the stern were perfect for installing the operating 'button' for the anchor and the pneumatic pump.

This ship will feature pneumatic operated chase guns, similar to what I did before here.
It will have a capstan which can be used to operate the crane, the cabin will light up and the anchor can be operated from the stern.

Well, I hope it will work out.
I will post more pictures when I make progress.

We piratey MOCers tend to gravitate towards shape and color and we are not nearly as good with fun/play features.  Koodos to you for doing something different!

One thing ive always liked about your ships is the fact that you add these great functions. Most people just put all their effort in getting the looks right. Well done for being more adventurous and adding more working functions, I look forward to seeing the final result!

Well, to be honest when I first saww the pic I wondered what it was all for.  Then I went to your Flickr and watched youre video link and was truly amazed!  Those mechanical gunports are brilliant on the Demon II, cant wait to see what you have in store for this ship  :pir-grin: Id love to see mechanically trimmed sails or something like that too

I thinkj what he means is, that this is the first newer ship he has bought and so he didn't know that Lego now use the same piece for the bow and stern. Which is probably my biggest dissapointment with the new Lego ships, as the original stern piece is far superior!

Will you make the pneumatics work for all the guns? I think it is a really cool idea!
I also like the way your demon 2 ship looks, good luck on this one!  :thumbup:
Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

Yes, this is my first of the new generation ships, I love the dark brown but the original hulls are so much better, besides, the new hull pieces wouldn't allow me to work in the pneumatic pump :P

I would either need a lot of pneumatic cylinders or design a very complicated technic construction to make that happen.
And I'll probably need a bigger ship as well. Perhaps my next ship will have this feature. Maybe I'll use remote control power functions then, if the ship is big enough to hold a battery box, motors and receiver :pir-sceptic:

Time for an update,
I covered up most of the techical side of the ship.

The chaser cannons are in place and work well, I'm not sure about using the hellhound heads again though.
I also placed the first mast but I'm probably gonna place it a bit higher, but I'll have to be carefull with that since I learned the first mast on a brig is shorter than the second mast (when it has two masts).

Posted Image

Maybe I'll give it a galleon sail plan, so one smaller third mast.

Next update!

Posted Image

The white cannon ports will be removed soon, I had a lot of problems trying to get a good color patern.

Posted Image

As you can see there's still a lot of work.

Posted Image

I don't know how you great ship builders do it but whenever I try using the laticed windows on a stern it never looks good. So I decided to once again do something else.
The nice thing about this glass window cabin will be the light function  :pir-blush: .

Nice hull shaping and curving. I like it, it give me inspiration for my next ship, thank you.

This is awesome. I though about doing something like this on my ship but I didn't have the skills and bricks for it.
The moving cannons are great and the real light will probably be great as well.
The colourscheme is also nice, but perhaps you could make the blue line continue between the two bowchasers.
Good luck on this!

Outstanding technique! I agree with the Admiral on the blue line, though. And I don't think that your way of designing the stern window is in any way inferior to the beig ships around here. I find it to be quite nice. (apart from that, we'll propably never be ably to fully understand vessels like the Achille and the Vesta. My best guess is that there are matte paintings where the most complex parts are. That - or they are simply built by people who are sticklers for details  :pir-sweet: )

Next update, it was night and I took pictures with the cabin lights on.
Now because I'm getting closer to my flickr limit I opened up my brickshelf again. Could anyone here help me to reduce the images ?

The ship is almost finished, I need to make some sails and improve the deck a bit.
The hellhound heads on the bow are giving me some probles, they are a bit wider than two studs which causes problems when I want be consistent with the blue line on the ship.
Still some work to do...

It looks a bit like the Black Pearl, I mean that it a good way  :thumbup: Looking forward to seeing more! :cannon:

Sorry, I just saw your update, It dosn't really look like the Pearl anymore, Still in a good way though! :pir_laugh2:

Oh, but this ship is not meant to look like the pearl. I'm just building on multiple ships at the same time.
there's this technical ship, the black pearl, Din's Fire and the flying dutchman.
I work on the one I like most at the moment.

Now I'm actually not really satified with this ship, all mechanical abilities are fine but  the ship itself looks rather blocky.
I think I'll need to try again.
Luckely I can just remove everything I don't like withouth touching its mechanical systems  :pir_laugh2:
Anyway, this was a fun build, mostly in the beginning.

Maybe I should apply these mechanics to a larger ship, like the Flying Dutchman I'm working on,
imagine, Remote controlled Triple cannons  :pir-sweet:

Interesting design, the mechanical aspects are cool and add something different to the norm. I don't think the ship itself looks too blocky but there's room for some improvement. The colour scheme is nice it would deffinitly be great to see you incorperate your mechanics into your new Dutchman. Maybe some string rigging would look better, although it's an absolute pain to do! Nice work and keep them coming.

Very cool working bits, but she needs some sails.
