Hi guys, I haven't been around for a long time.
I was in the process of sorting out all the Legos in my home, then I thought to myself: Let's build something out of it :)
So this ship was built from really limited resources, and I do know Victory got 3 decks, but again... sadly not enough bricks :(

First thing first, I've uploaded a video on YouTube detailing the working rudder.
Please go and take a look: (It's only 2 minutes, so it won't take you very long :))


And I understand there are many photos so if you can't load them or for any other reasons, please go to my album on photobucket:
http://s225.photobuc...93/HMS Victory/

And actually I've edited many of my photos and added captions on them using the edit function on Photo-bucket, but I don't understand why it doesn't show up on here...

And to the photos, here you go:

A view of the port side:

A view of the starboard side:

The bow:

And the stern:
This time I've tried the new "cheese slope" mosaic at the back. I've tried to make the back as "Victory-ish" as possible, but as you can see, it's still a long way to go.
Posted Image

Here are some bird's eye views as well:

Posted Image

To make this ship more user-friendly, I've adopted a modular building style.
Starting from the bottom without anyone:
Posted Image

Now fill up the bottom deck... with a gold philosophy... (In case you can't see it, it's "No Port, NO Life")
Posted Image

And as always, a tiny problem between our small friends and everyone else.
Posted Image

Okay, second floor.
Posted Image

Some closeups:
And again my philosophy is quite popular among the sailors. (And in case you can't see it, it's "The best way of life is being drunk")
Posted Image

Well... someone got to work:
Posted Image

On the same floor towards to the front of the ship, we have the kitchen:
Posted Image
Posted Image

Not to mention the not so fancy captain's cabin:
Posted Image

Here you could have a guess on how my rudder actually work.
Posted Image

The doors:
Posted Image

And just to show you that there are 4 lamps in the cabin:
Posted Image

After finished with the inside of the ship, allow me to show you the deck:

I've got many muskets let lying around, and I don't like the idea of bucket.

I just wanna show you Lord Nelson(the guy with a blind eye and only one arm.)
Posted Image
Posted Image

hehe
Posted Image

Just want to show you the anchor(one per side):
Posted Image

Now the mast and rigs of the ship:

Here are some other views of the ship:

Last but not least, please please please leave me some comments. Thank you for reading.

I think this is quite a fun MOC.  It definitely has the feel of HMS Victory even without the big size.  Lots of nice details and minifigs to bring it to life.  The head-rails technique is a good one which I've not seen before.  The working rudder is a nice touch too.

HMS Victory looks great. I like the yellow and black colour scheme and the details are excellent. :pir-classic:

The white ensing used to be in use after something like 1800 century, before that they ued red and blue ensings. If i have readed my homework right....

Into the MOC. I like the most of it, and its neat that theres some interior, one thing im not sure about in the back gallery, looks a bit odd for me, but thats fine. Keep it up.

Fantastic ship, hilarious pictures & commentary but my favorite detail has to be that musket rack. Brilliant!

And to my friend, Cpt Becker, I've used my all my legos for the outside of the ship already, so.. um... I guess the interior design is just... um.. less impressive :p :p

And a small update requested by my friend:
I really should have done it earlier, since this is Victory and it's Lord Nelson. :bonaparte:

That's certainly an important picture for this topic!
However, it's too large. Could you please risize it? Our max. allowed is 800X600 pixles :pir-classic:

This moc is so interesting!
It reminds me of the 10188 lego kit (the death star diorama). It's like a game.. but it's full of details, really a nice work!

Thanks consider it done :), in fact I've re-sized all the above pictures, using the re-size function on photobucket... hopefully it will work.  :pir-tongue:

Funny you mentioned, because that's what I've aimed at.  :pir-vader:

I love the way you are presenting your ship, with a lot of humor!

And I like all the action that's happening on your deck.

Good that you've resized the pictures :pirate:

Now this ship looks very good! I like the working rudder.
Although the stern might need some more experimenting, it's quite nice already.
I like how you've incorporated minifig torso's there. Never seen that before.

I think this is a rather good middle between a realistic and a playable MOC.

Are you also going to add more sails?
You could perhaps try to make your own sails, we have quite a lot of tutorials in the index.
However, I do think you could add some more variety in the length of the different yards first.

Good luck on future projects/experiments!
