ah, your fleet is always an inspiration, love it! Any chance you'll be dislplaying these beauties any time in the not too distant future?

I really love this photo! Was I to see it in any other context than a Lego forum I would have taken my gospel oath on it being a real life picture. Well done, sir.

I've only recently joined but I've been following this thread for a while, and I have been amazed at the details of the fleet. Its actually inspired me to get back into Lego, can't wait to see more of your work Posted Image

I am not sure if the illusion scale can be improved any more than this. But Im sure you will find a way to improve it beyond what you have done.  You really have mastered this style of lego building, and it has inspired me to rebuild parts of my own mocs to improve them and add more detail.  The lines on your ships are spot on and the sails are perfect.

Your fleet sure is impressive! I especially admire the redone gingerbread work on the Achille. Do you suppose that you will build any more ships in the near future? Your fleet admiral will surely need a ship of the line to command from!

I'm sorry to bump this, but I wanted to take a look a you pictures for inspiration, but can't see them anymore. So I was wondering if there was a new place you had them uploaded to.

Interesting his pictures were there recently. His Brickshelf is still active and you might scrape by with this small folder for inspiration. http://www.brickshel...ry.cgi?f=432073

His Flickr is gone as I am sure you noticed. He also hasn't been here since Christmas. I really hope we find the images again! Do we back up blogged images?

It's a shame indeed to see those fabulous pictures gone. I have downloaded a lot of them when they were still up to use as inspiration for my ship. But since it's not my work I can't share them here or on my flickr account. I think you'd best pm perfectionist and see if you can get an answer from him.

It's true, the pictures are gone. Unfortunately, may laptop was stolen a while back and with it all pictures that I had of the ships.

Almost all pictures are back. The police also found my laptop. Posted Image

Currently the fleet is stored stored mostly in the basement, though I hope to be able to let is see the light of the day when I get the opportunity.

Hello everybody! roughly 4 years (!) after completion, I finally took some nicer pictures of all ships. Still, these ships were built to last, and they are actually like new, and still up to date in terms of techniques. I've made a new topic for Concorde just recently, but now took new pictures of all ships, including her, they will all be posted here.

I never thought I would have something negative to say about one of your ships, but I have to say that I liked Achille better in red.  The tan looks kinda dull in comparison.

Concorde and Magicienne are absolutely gorgeous, however.  I particularly like the blue and yellow of the stern faces.  The yellow linings at the top are probably my favorite features of the pictures shown here, and as usual, your sails are amazing.  If I ever saw your basement, I would probably never leave it- unless the ships did, too.

Speaking of Achille, actually, I have a question for you.  I recently redid my largest ship so that the spar deck is now removable.  I had to break it into four sections, though, to try and cut down on the sagging that I encountered.  There's still quite a bit of it on the largest section, though, and the ship only has five center segments.  Did you encounter any of this with the deck of Achille, and how did you fix it?
