Beautiful ship! I agree though, that the coins are too cheap a solution to such a magnificent build.
I especially like how you did the sails, very professional with the sewn edges.
The ship contains quite a few fantasy elements but it's great nevertheless.
I also love the frontal view and the golden figurehead.

I hope you'll keep on building ships :pir-classic:
By the way, you also made it to the Eurobricks frontpage!


Ty I bring this project to the end thanks to you and capitan grennhair and yours wonderfull ship.

There were a great inspiration for me!

I love the little key chain thing on the head figure, or figure head......whatever it's called. :pir-tongue: very beautiful ship :pir-wub:

Very well done!  Excellent detail, and she (he?) has a color scheme not often seen in MOCs.  I also like how clean it is, the decks and hull do not appear to be overly busy or cluttered.  Excellent job, sir, excellent indeed!

Gluing parts to a ship! Shame on you! :pir-laugh:

Beautiful ship! The color scheme really stands out excelently with that white hull. Nice work on the details and sails. I'm not going to moan about the glued coins as I myself am guilty of gluing whips on the stern of my first ship. However I can say that there is always another solution and gluing parts shoulding really be done. If you are planning on keeping this ship intact as a display model than I suppose the glued coins won't be a problem.

Really excellent work :thumbup:

Impressive showcase, it gives it a bigger impression, and it looks very professional.

on the connecting story, you could try to put some technic bricks (brick with hole) in the underside of the water  and make a nail or screw or woodplug erect from the wooden base which lines up with the tecnhic brick, this should prevent the ship from sliding around in the showcase. Don't suggest you keep it upside down though, but it should be enough when you move the whole around or even hold it under an angle.

Can I ask how you cut the plexiglass?  I am wanting to do something similar to keep the dust off.  :pir_laugh2:

I am amazed to see such a mighty fine vessel built on the small prefabs. I don't think I every saw a better MOC build on these!  :pir-oh:
Many have said it already, but I have to note that your sails stand out; i.e. they are simply outstanding! Rigging is good too. I also love your choice of colors; just as much as I enjoy my way of making headrails becoming more popular  :pir-wink:

The showcase is great, I've build one too for my frigates, however I found it very heavy and prone to scratches. What are your experiences?

Great build! I'm looking forward to seeing your next MOC.

i m glad to read this word from a great builder like you
i sew all your moc and they give me a lot of ispiration to make something of good.

plexiglass is
the showcase material (not glass)  and it s not so heavy if you have to trasport the ship.
i ask to different shops that make showcase for architect and they say me this type of plexiglass is really resistent
