I don't often come to this forum due to the high quality of most of your creations I can't compete with, but I would like to introduce, just for you, one of my last Work In Progress.
I'm the only one in my french lug in working with lego old ships of the line, and in applying the Captain Green Hair's technic, and I have built several ships by this way, but this light frigate, instead of being quite simple, was conceived with a particularity : she consists in two parts made to fit and to slide perfectly the one on the over, wich is nearly invisible on the pictures.
The Espada (it is supposed to be a spanish frigate) was conceived to make part of a gigantic project of diorama. In facts, the scene is too big to allow me to put it in my room, that's why I have to wait to be in an exhibition to take pictures or videos, and the public usually likes it. It is also still a project ; much things are to be improved, but the mecanism has proved itself and I could take the first videos so that I can share it with you and extend the creation of Eurobricks.
The scene represents a spanish flotilla standing near a mysterious island, when a kraken suddently appears close to the coast, and sink two frigates. The kraken's tentacles are animated, and the prow of the Petirrojo is in flames, buffeted by the monster, while the sea opens and sinks the stern of the Espada until she finishes into the mouth of the Kraken.
OK, enough words, here are the videos :
The sinking of the Espada, and you con see the whole diorama.
The passengers of the Petirrojo trying to survive between the tentacles.
Here, I introduce my waterfall system and a very small french army, before focusing on the cave I built beneath the island.
And finally, additional videos taken during the tests, from several points of view.
Well, that's all for the moment, I know that my ships are quite modest, due to the fact that I don't own a lof of amazing parts, but I hope my work stands noteworthy, and that you will like it. If you have any idea to help me in the continuation, it would be great to discuss about it right here.
To go further, here is a small galery for the Espada :
I had no time to make a movie of the scene, with scene edition and music of POTC, but I'll have it done one day
Oh, and by the way, I apologize if my english is...strange
