My work on the Pirate audio dramas have gotten my brother and I in the mood to build Pirates again.
So let’s start with a ship that was build mostly by my brother.
Posted Image
The story influence quickly shows, as this is supposed to be governor Broadside’s ship, the Iron Ram.
Posted Image
Not surprisingly we used the name as an inspiration for the figurehead.
Posted Image
The ship is held in a very classic style like the BSB and the CC.
Posted Image
Unfortunately there is not much space on top of the cabin, but enough for the rudder and a mast.
Posted Image
The backside of the cabin, pretty much the only thing that can be seen clearly in the only picture I have seen of the ship.
Posted Image
The inside of the cabin, where the commanding officer lt. De Martinet is sitting.
Posted Image
The sight every pirate fears.

We have built a few more things, but I’ll post those later.

Thanks for the comments.

I mentioned that we had built a few more things, so let’s bring on the next ship.
Posted Image
This is a Spanish ship that that I build. It mostly mimics the rather colorful paint job of the Armada Flagship.
Posted Image
Originally I wanted to give it cannons on rails like the one of the flagship, but it ended up being like the SES because the other ones would have been too tall for the hull.
Posted Image
The commander of the ship.
Posted Image
It was interesting to try and make a sail like this as not official LEGO ship has a sail like that.
Posted Image
The backside of the cabin, with crossed sabers for decoration.
Posted Image
The inside of the cabin is just as colorful as the rest of the ship.

I still have a few more things for later.

Wow, those 2 ships are already amazing!! I love how you took an official ship and made it in almost every way better!

Well, my brother and I are not done yet, so here is another ship.
Posted Image
This I captain Foul’s ship, the Barracuda, from The Golden Medallion comic. It was mostly build by my brother. It is a little hard to make a model of it, because I only know of 4 pictures of the ship, and they are not all that consistent on how the ship looks.
Posted Image
The ship is pretty well armed.
Posted Image
There has never really been any close-ups of the Barracuda, so we decided to give the ship a prisoner hold.
Posted Image
The backend of the cabin. I knew that window would come in handy for a ship sooner or later.
Posted Image
Captain Foul and his henchman Culverin.
Posted Image
The interior of the cabin.

Your fleet becomes strong! Just try to make the gap between the stern and the sides a little less marked :)

Well, I’ll try to think about it.

But for now I have one more ship up my sleeve.
Posted Image
The story about the Queen Of England that I wrote down left me with the idea of building a passenger ship.
Posted Image
There are windows on the sides instead of cannon hatches. A passenger ship would probably be an easy target for the pirates.
Posted Image
Some lifeboats to fill out the empty deck.
Posted Image
The rudder and the ship’s captain. While I have made a uniformed crew for the ship I haven’t actually made any passengers yet.
Posted Image
A Crewmember who is swabbing the deck and the stairway to the cabins below deck.
Posted Image
The backside of the ship, which is decorated with a few flowers.
Posted Image
The lower deck, complete with passenger cabins and a kitchen.
Posted Image
A better look at one of the cabins. This one has bunk beds.
Posted Image
The kitchen.
Posted Image
The large cabin on the ship is a dining hall.

Well, I think that are all the ships I have for now.

Nice ships Runamuck!  You've definitely kept the feel of classic pirates that we all love.
I like them all but my favorite is the Iron Ram.  It looks the most like a real LEGO system set and the figurehead is very identifiable with so few bricks.

It has been a while since I have last build anything, but I have finally gotten around to making another ship.

Posted Image
This time I have built a little fishing vessel.
Posted Image
I even tried to make some somewhat functional net arms.
Posted Image
The catch of the day.
Posted Image
The interior of the ship. Its rather small, so there isn’t a whole lot to look at.
Posted Image
The backend of the ship, and the nets in action.

That's a fun design! I really like it, it's also a neat change of pace from what is normally posted.

All of those ships are really great! I like how you use such a classic feel in your ships. :wink:

Great new ship :thumbup: The netting is done very well.

I always like seeing trading/fishing ships and the like. They add more depth to the pirate era.

Thanks for all the comments.

While I may have been rather busy writhing various things lately I have also found a little time to make something of my last spare hull.
Posted Image
I built a little cargo ship.
Posted Image
A better look at the side of the ship. I thought the hull was a bit on the small side, but I had to improvise a little to make the ship longer.
Posted Image
I wanted to make the deck easy to remove. Unfortunately that didn’t quite go as intended, but it is removable none the less, even if I have to remove a lantern in order to get it off.
Posted Image
The backend of the ship. I tried making some windows that were a little more fancy than usual.
Posted Image
The captain’s cabin. Kind of dark in there.

I love the passenger ship!

By the way, that "yoink" sound you just heard was totally not me stealing some of your ideas...

If Lego had kept the bluecoats, people would still be buying Pirate sets.

That is an impressive fleet! I like the idea of a passanger ship with all those cabins. It has a good color and the uniforms are just perfect!
