What a nice mini ship! It looks very good. Although the jib is too square but I don't know how to get it more triangle shaped, so who am I to complain?
The creator used some SNOT in this creation. The tiles at the side look very nice.
And defenitly better than that other mini ship sold by LEGO...

He made this BS Gallery. He seems to be an expert in Mini MOCing... He's not a memeber of EB...

That's exactly what I was thinking!

As for the ship...  It looks very nifty, although I'm not liking the use of the plates for sails because they're too wide.  The thickness of sails are about one sixth the width of the hull!  Maybe I'm being overly critical there given it would be hard to create brick built sails on something this small without resorting to just one plate.

Very nice, and I think although the sails are a bit bulky, they make up most of that MOCīs charm also....

Incredible how small this thing is. Not easy to make with so many details.
Nice to look at, but I prefer minifig size because I want to play with my ships  ;-)
He guns are made in the same way as in this mini HMS Surprise.

NO! Dirty, Dirty Phes. And how do you know that the builder isn't a girl?  :-P


Anyways, It looks pretty good, as said before I like Minifig scale ships or builldings, because on a cold winter night, you can have them battle!
Just returned from a 3 or so year dark age, so just getting back into the swing of things. :)

You're the only one with a dirty mind Mister Norrington, as Mr Tiber has already reminded you what I was thinking, and I'm sure girls can have larges amounts of creativity too.

Maybe, but it was MR.PHES that made the original provacative comment was it not? So, in theory, I don't have a dirty mind for responding to a dirty joke the way I did... But lets not get off topic on this wonderfull little model we have here.

Yes, I prefer the SYSTEM scale ships too.  I suppose that's because they allow for more detail and greater functionality, plus the mini-figures also add a degree of delightfulness to them.

So I be wonderin Mr Walkers, why do you prefer ships with room for mini-figures?
