Feel free to support my Flying Dutchman at Cuusoo... if you're in a good mood
Here it is, there are still some rough edges but I like it this way, I will modify several parts of this ship, add sails and so on but I got to post this ship at some point. Feel free to support my Flying Dutchman at Cuusoo
A special thanks go to you guys, for supporting , suggesting , correcting and everything else you did in the WIP tread
This ship would not have been what it is now.
I'm also happy to say that this is the biggest lego Flying Dutchman on the net (over 1 meter lenght) and that...feels good
Originally I wanted to link to all other ships that are bigger but appearently that's more than a handfull
A video (sorry it's very dark, eventhough I filmed this is bright daylight, I'm guessing there's something wrong with my camera)
The port side:
The ship has a total lenght (stern lanterns to tip of prow) equally to 10 cars lined up. Check the spoiler for more comparisons.
Well, more pictures can be found in my Brickshelf Gallery.
I'm going to make a mocpage as well and probably post a picture at Flickr.
I don't have anything big planned for now, I might do some more experimenting with IR broadside cannons but I also want to build some more in other themes besides Pirate (but don't worry, I still have plenty of pirate ships in stock).
Either way, I don't think I'll demolish this ship anywhere soon, I'm going to keep it forever (atleast some years).
I also added it to Cuusoo, a ship the way I made it might not make a realistic set but it could increase chances of an official Flying Dutchman set eventually.

My Cuusoo project drew attention of a rather influent youtube lego reviewer (has over 12000 subscribers)
I'm not really into youtube, I use it purely as a tool to upload video's. This person however, BrickQueen has quite the influence, my cuusoo project gained over 100 supporters in one day .
I might get an official LEGO comment when it reaches 1000 supporters. I do not think my little ship will ever make a real set but I'm very interested in what LEGO has to say about it themselves, maybe some explination why there was no official Flying Dutchman in the first place ?
