In my first post in the pirate forum i'd like to present a ship with some neat features which make it a bit different from other Lego ships. I named the ship Neptune's Pride since the figurehead was quite fitting. Unfortunately theres no interior below deck because of the cannon and rudder mechanism but there are still lots of details to explore!

I hope you liked my first 17th century ship and enjoyed the moving parts (some more photos can be seen in my flickr set), and as always comments and suggestions for improvenment welcome!

It is such an amazing frigate. I can't believe I'm the first one to comment on it. The flag seems like a unigue design, the front decoration is a great use of the new Collectible Minifigure, and I even like the color. Keep up your work!

I remember seeing your YouTube video on it. It is absolutely amazing how you pulled it together! :jollyroger:

Great Ship, I wish I was this good at MOC's. I have to pass off my Redcoat ships as Merchant one's, due to the small size  :pir_bawling: . Great use of CMF as figure head, now when I go to the LEGO shop this weekend I'm going to be desperately buying CMF'S and looking through the minifig bin's to find something like this  :pir-tongue:  .

Very nice, I have been experimenting with power functions on my ships as well, I never completed a ship with moving cannons though.
Out of interest, what mechanism did you use to move the cannons ?
I used this.
And is it remote controlled ?
