Does it have a thread of its own though?

Do what exactly?

Do you mean post in the Pirate LEGO MOCs forum?  Its the first sub-forum at the top of the Main Pirate Forum.

I haven't seen it before and I would remember such a beauty!
Great ship and good colors!
It looks Spanish to me. Anyone agrees?
The brick-build sea is nice, with the dolphins and the waves.

Ah, Good work Mr. Tiber! Now I see that this baby rests in The Vault in Legoland Billund, in which case Sne made a topic about this recently (and problably awhile ago too).

Gotcha

Nice to see some more pictures Mr. Tiber.
I wonder if it has an interior.
Probably not since it is only used for display at the Vault.

This MOC has the fingerprints of a lego land builder all over it.  Everything, right down to the waves is a piece of artwork.  A point of interest is that there are two cannons located in the rear of the ship.  Very few fan made MOCs do this  A pirate flag is also flying on the back, in which case one has to wonder where or why these pirates are commanding such a hulking vessel with what appears to be such a measly crew.  I particularly like the rigging of this beast.  It makes for a very realistic ship from afar.

And why does everybody think it's a Spanish ship? It actually reminds me of a Dutch Galleon...
I agree with Mr. Tiber.  It looks like a very ornate Dutch Galleon.
I usually think of Spanish vessels having a larger forecastle when their aftcastle is that big.

I like that it has two cannons on the back. (in case someone tries to shoot her rudder)  I've seen pics in books where the cannons in the back are real low like that.

I didn't notice that till you told it, cause my ships do have stern guns(AKA Chasers)  X-D

There are three cannons at the rear of my Acheron X-D , and there are also gonna be two at the rear of my future brig...
I'm hoping to have 4 chasers on the back of my frigate  X-D

I believe he meant to say "I agree..." but he hit the key above it.

I don't instinctively associate this ship with any nationality, just looks pirate to me. 8-|

At the last minute Willy can't decide if he's staying or leaving...

She looks English or Portuguese to me.  The colours are more English navy circa 1580.

Sorry, I'm a navy historian of sorts.
