Flying Dutchman / Hollandais Volant / Vliegende Hollander

She's finally finished, with a total length of 129 studs (about 1 meter) and a max. width of about 26 studs she's my largest MOC ship so far.
A special thanks for you guys, for supporting  :pir-blush: , suggesting  :monkey: , correcting  :pir-hmpf_bad: and everything else you did in the WIP tread  :shark:This ship would not have been what it is now.
This was also the first time I shared my progress in a WIP tread, I'm happy I did.

Posted ImageThe ship has a total lenght (stern lanterns to tip of prow) equally to 10 cars lined up.
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 hope you liked it.

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.

WOW that truely is amazing there are so many details in it. I particularly love the back of the cabian with the seaweed and bits of sea creatures attatched to it. :pir-wub:  :drool:

It's finished! And what a beauty she is! This ship is seriously one of the best ones I've seen, the WIP thread was also very good for seeing how you made it! The stern is fantastic, all the detail is just marvelous, and the ship itself is full of so many great details! I absolutely love this thing.  :pir-tongue:

No seriously, you've nailed this one, it's so detailled, during your build i must say i had my doubts how this was turning out, but you've outdone yourself :thumbup: .

I don't like the fact you use real ropes instead LEGO ropes.

Despite of this, great MOC, faithful to the POTC ship

I tried using original rigging pieces (link) but that just wasn't what I want it to be.
And because lego strings practically only come in black (which is a color I tried to avoid as much as possible) I decided the costum rigging was the best alternative.
Still, it makes me a bit sad that my ship is not 100% LEGO.

This is absolutely incredible. I know you have made some fine MOC's Sebeus but I think you have really excelled yourself this time. Its a strangely beautiful model and captures the original source material very well. Any idea how many pieces it took to make?

I don't have the slightest clue, I weighted the ship (4,2 kg) and based on that (I know it's silly) I estimated...6000 pieces... but that could be wrong for more than 2000  :pir_wacko:

Wow! Words cant explain how impressive this is! If TLC ever get around to releasing their own Flying Dutchman chances are it will look tiny compared to this one!

Well done!

Is that all you have to say about this huge, magnificient, impressive, mind-blowing vessel? :pir-tongue:

You have outdone yourself Sebeus, fantastic work all round! From the details to the shapes, it's all top-notch. :thumbup:
When you started with this ship I was hoping you knew what kind of challenge it would become, and you've pulled it off in a most impressive way. Congratulations! :pir-sweet:

And oh, look at that wonderful tag of yours! :pir-wub:

but I'm a real noob at such things like costum sails, costum rigging, costum..anything actually  :pir_laugh2:
Judging from your shrouds I don't see where is the noob part Posted Image They are great and fit fantastically the ship!I'm actually speechless. If this was a normal ship it would be impressive for its details and scale… But it's not! It's the FD, with incredible detail, shape and accuracy! You have gathered the ship's look in the stern, bow, everywhere… The masts in that colorscheme turned out great, the captain's cabin also, there is but one place that I dislike: the capstan Posted Image That capstan isn't looking finished yet, tough I know you went for lots of consideration with that. Anyway, at a ship at this scale, who notices the capstan? Posted Image

As I said in the WIP this is probably one of the best vessels ever done! Great job! And you can clearly notice your progress from builder since your last FD… Fantastic!

A ship is floating in the harbour now,

The wind is hovering o'er the mountain's brow;

There is a path on the sea's azure floor,

No keel has ever ploughed that path before

I thought about making a new siggy for this occasion but I like my old one too much.

Btw, I updated my post with a new video, I had to make the soundtrack myself (because of youtube license problems) Because of that it's not as good as the original music :S
but atleast there is an continue track.

Someday I'll finish the other side, when I gathered enough parts.
At this moment I can't even start building the other side, my old grey collection is exhausted, I have like only three 1x2 grey bricks left  :pir_laugh2:
I'll need quite some minifigure legs as well and I'm also out of dark tan...
Overall, it would take another big investment  :pir_wacko:
