The Blue Kraken
Posted 19 March 2007 - 09:40 PM
The blue Kraken is a small imperial soldier ship and a time filler while I wait and see if I can get any good material for the sails on TCT I made today, shortly after my first complete pirate set, 6521 ariived in the post after winning the bid on ebay.Here is a pic of the overall ship, you can probably see what I meant by "small".
Here is the front of the ship.
This pic shows the weapon rack, which would be in front of the mast, and you can also see the cannon.
This picture shows the inside of the cabin, with a bed and a table.
And then finally the crew.
So what do you think?

And what purpose does that large white slope in the cabin serve?

I will either add more tommorow or tonight.
The large white slope serves as a bed for the captain, 007.

I agree with the others that this ship appears "thrown together", but since this was only a time filler I'm sure this MOC is full of much more potential. 007, mentioned your other ship, which I like a lot, so I can see that you're already a very capable ship builder! (Or at least a capable sloop builder. ;-)) I also like the sail's color scheme in the other MOC. I was thinking of doing something similar for my own boat, but I'm still hungup on the right way to get that "airy sail" look.

Also check out Bonaparte's Wikipedia links index
and this Wikipedia article might be helpfull.
It also needs a bowsprit on the bow.

(i think you have more pieces, and you can do it better....if you haven't got sufficient pieces, i understand...by my own experience)

a napkin was the best substitute for cloth I could use. It might seem strange, but I liked it coz it gave it that "clothy feel".

I have always been a fan of these white/blue hulls.
