Hello everyone. Long time no see!
It's been some time since I last posted here. But now I'm back and I wish to show you a new MOC - a Spanish frigate. Since historically it was the Spaniards who had the biggest and most powerful ships, it was only logical for me to give the biggest ship I ever built to them... So here she is - La Victoria...
If you wish, you can take this quick tour of the vessel, where I show you the things I consider worth noticing.
So, let's begin with the figurehead. And before you start complaining about those KK2 swords (they're Viking, actually ;-) ), let me explain. IMO figureheads often represent mythological or fantastic creatures, and these swords have this unrealistic, fantastic look which fits here (actually I think it's the only case where they fit...).
This ship has its own brig, located on the upper deck. Right now you can see a British captain who was unlucky to become a POW in there.
The ship has a spacious cargo bay with 2 hatches leading to it. It's used for carrying all sorts of goods belonging to the Armada.
The sailors can use the hatch on the upper deck and the stairs below it to reach the lower deck. This is the place where the ordinary seamen sleep and dine. Of course the officers have their own mess hall. The meals are prepared in the galley by the one-eyed chef and are delivered to the officers by the steward.
The officers' quarters are on the upper floor of the sterncastle - the captain has his own quarters, while the first and second officers live together.
These are only the small details I wanted to draw your attention to. You can see the rest in the brickshelf folder. Please don't forget about page 2.
Hope you enjoy it!
