You have some very nice ships Kurt.
Great introduction!

I had already seen your irconclad on BS.
It's a real masterpiece.
I have build a version of the monitor myself some time ago, but didn't take any decent pictures yet.

Thanks, I am glad you like my ships.

RTS LEGITOR was months of work, designing the cannons, figuring out the turret (which ofcoarse rotates), figuring out the hull .
So I am glad you enjoy it.

Messing around and taking pictures is a pain.

I am glad you like the cannons, a lot time in those too. Read the lugnet thread and follow some of the links to the real cannons.
FYI:
"As far as I know, the guns at Filipstad are the only ones of their kind left in the world today.  And what guns they are.  Two 15-inch, cast-iron, muzzle-loaded smoothbores—“Dahlgrens”—each weighing some 42,000 pounds (21 tons) and capable of firing a 450-pound solid shot.  They were the terror of the American Civil War.  So what are these mammoth specimens doing in Filipstad, Värmland, in rural Sweden?"
- Howard J. Fuller The Guns at Filipstad

Anyone here from Sweden?

is it possible for you to post the plans for the RTS Legomalee (I hope I spelled that right).  I would like to know what materials are needed as well.  I may want to construct a near copy if I ever get the money.  


Also, who is the best brick supplier? (In Western USA).

There are no detailed plans, all you can do is look pictures, and at the cross-section in my pirate vignette.

Thanks for the info.  I had seen your cannon a couple months ago and was very impressed.
Thanks for the part list. I have everything (i think) except the bucket  X-D

Ah, you need help using bricklink!

Go to bricklink and enter the part you want click "Go!"

Lets say you entered a 3001 which is a "brick 2 x 4"
You sould see
http://www.bricklink.com/search.asp?q=3001

Now click Show More Filter Options

Now chose your country or Region put a dot there and pull-down the correct answer.

In the "Sort by" pull-down select "Lowest Price"

Click "Go!"

Now you should see the lowest priced parts in you Region/Country you might want to add a color you do that by typing in the "Search Within Results" entry window.

Hope this helps.

Thank you very much!!!


BTW Your moniter is truly the greatest LEGO steam vessel I've ever seen!


In the same category, I would like to someday build an Ironclad central battery vessel or an early armoured cruiser (right now, the Inflexible and the Riurik are possibilities).  Right now I have a battleship constructed (will post pics soon), but what I have in mind is bigger.  

However, my funds are short now, so this will be postponed.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to make a convincing turret  of the period (1870-1920).  Inflexible doesn't need them, but the Ruirik has a few.

Mr Kurt, why did you build two cabins on the Legomalee?? The HMS Trinconmalee only has one...
And how did you slope the windows of the cabins??

You ask a good question,  in http://news.lugnet.com/pirates/?n=4142 I said.
"the [frigate's] stern looked wonderfully low and sleek, with just the captains cabin below the quarter deck. And as the LNA (Lego Naval Architect) of the RTN I would have left it that way. However she (the RTS LEGOMALEE) is the largest ship the fleet and the Admiral needed a flag-cabin, so ...

Now she has a nice dramatic aft."


The truth is that low rear cabin on the frigate did look nice but when compaired to the rest of the fleet.

pic1
Posted Image

It looked to small. So I added the flag-deck cabin!
This let me built a stern castle with some height to it.

View PostMr Tiber, on Jan 7 2007, 03:39 PM, said:

The kicked-out windows on both the RTS LEGOMALEE and the RTS SAN LEGONIO are 3 4 5 right triangles with the window in the middle of the 5 long side with a stack of 2 1x1 round and 1 1x1 cone bricks on each side of the window.

The stern's inverted sloped windows on the RTS LEGOMALEE,RTS SAN LEGONIO and the RTS REMEMBER the LEGAMO are 1 brick thick panel that is at the bottom hinged with a row of Posted Image4315 on the RTS LEGOMALEE this panel trapped at the top by a 1x16 row of plates attached to the underside of a larger plate. Look closely at pic2 on the far side as the inverted sloped panel comes to the top by the upper far white arch brick.

Hope this helps.

But the Scimitar is my fav. LEGO one.

I need to take more pics!

All the big ships have complete insides esp. the gun decks.

RTS LEGOMALEE
Posted Image

If you look below the two ships boats into the hole into the gun deck you will see: ladders on each end, the formast,
a barrel, a crewman, and  ofcoarse 4 guns (of the 22 total on the gun deck 11 on each side) on their carages, with wheels, each tied off to the hull at each side of the gun port hole (4081b)

my pirate vignette shows this
Posted Image

http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=122331

It has the same cross-section as the LEGOMALEE  and the decks are open except to the masts passing through.
And very short (just like the proto types!) No tall hat on minifig standing strait-up!

The captain's cabins (and the flag deck on the LEGOMALEE) also open, and nicely done, however I have never made any funishings for them, ie. desks chairs beds cabinets  extra.

I recall seeing a captain's office somewhere (a search on lugnet I am sure)

I... I dunno how to put it, man. This is simply some of the most extrordinary Lego Pirate work i've ever seen. I'd say KUTGW but that wouldnt be good enough! I'm having trouble finding any flaws in much of anything. These are several very well researched and very well built peices. Well done!
