... and what not, but it is far too large for a pirate vessel... Teach, Roberts and Phred are the only Pirates known for using large vessels..
LOL! :-D
I know the barbary states took over a US ship (don't remember if it's a frigate or a large sloop :-$ ) too.
Granted it was a country that controled this ship, but it was a very piratey country >8-) .

Edit:
Also, i added those MOC cannons to MOC Cannon index.
They look really good *y*

Another Edit :-|| :
Hey Z i came up with an idea using click-hinges that might help your cathead be more stable and not need a "support arm".

I used different colors intentionally so that it's really easy to see ho it's built. ;-)

Nice... unfortunately I will not be using your design as I received a small bricklink order today with the parts for my cat heads/  they are remarkably similar though... great minds must think alike!  I also have plans for the lower bow too, so we'll see how that turns out.

Edit: I used this piece instead of the two Phred had referenced.  Posted Image...
but the designs are pretty close to identical.  Thanks Phred!

Here the updated catheads, they are fairly similar to Phred's idea, but a little different hinge plate.

Also, I think I might not have shown a picturing looking to the bow from the deck, so there is one of those too...

Triple post!  Haha I am sooo lame!

okay, well anyhow, this is the progress I made yesterday, but didn't get around to posting... I am studying for tests, so I am not my usual zippy self!  I am also short a bunch of plates and what not.  Anyhow, the ship is getting heavy, and with the latest editions, it now actually kind of looks like a ship!

so here it is... I am missing a bunch of plates and some red hinges so the side wall isn't attached well yet.  I also got a better shot of the cathead for Phred!

I agree, but I think the anchors are only supposed to attach to the catheads when they are pulled up from the water... I will try to figure out how to set that up a bit better... anyhow, made a little progress.  not my usual speedy self with finals here!

More in a few days... I hope!!

I think you are right about how the catheads were used.  Although i don't have confirmation of that piece of info.
In my bow Posted Image of the DDW i've got it designed for the cathead to only pull the anchor out of the water after the capstan has raised the anchor the rest of the way and keep the anchor from rattling against the bow.

Mostly.  I just needed some way to get access in there for move around guns and make some interiors... there is now a stove in the front for example, that I built on the the slide out platform then inserted into the ship!

Wow, that's one big ship!
It already looks good. And the amount of details is already stunning! Although I think it would look a bit "fat" because of it's length, a bit longer would make I look more sleek I think... But if it's intended to look like that, that's okay offcourse!
I can barely wait to see the final result of this amazing Ship in progress.

Why I would... that would be the ol' BAT GRAPPLE! So just about any Batman set will have those as a Batman accessory!

Really?  Well we'll see after the stern cabin is on.  If it is still a little 'fat looking' I can alway lengthened up the mid section without much work!

The Phantom seems to be coming along nicely, I'm curious to see how those masts are going to work.

I'm impressed every time I see a new update of this ship.

As am I.  I think once they get high enough to reach a mast platform, I may switch over the the standard Lego masts!

Well I try boney!

Maybe I should start taking the pics during the day so they are easier to see!

I also need to do a massive redesign on the stern... it appears this is going to be quite a challenge!!

A quick update... I am off to the library to study for my final... a final  ;-)

I did some stern redesigning, but I am short a few pieces still.  I am still working on it... but I added some windows... I am going to withhold judgment until I have the cabin walls completed!

Go right ahead and steal from me!  that is the point of sharing after all!

I came up with this solution after trying to figure out haw to jam a black fence part in there... then I said... "Hmm... I wonder if the shutter hanger and the windows are the same height!"... I looked at the window and saw that they were.  They obviously won't work as shutters over the current window panes, but they work quite nicely as sloped windows!

I love it *wub* !!

Though I must say, when I first saw it, the name "Phantom" made me think about the Haunted Mansion at DisneyLand, and then I began humming Grim Grinning Ghosts from the HM graveyard scene to myself  :-P . Check the link, the song is actully quite catchy 8-o .
Just returned from a 3 or so year dark age, so just getting back into the swing of things. :)

So Tiber says me ship is 'fat' and 'stubby'...

I don't know what he is talking about, looks sleek to me!

Posted Image

Okay, so that was a joke.  Onto small update...

You can see the length here... I think Tiber might be right, it seems about 12 studs to short to me know... I think I will stretch when I can get some pieces!

Posted Image

Posted Image


Here is some creepy winding stairs I tried to add because striaght stairs would take up too much room.  They are kinda cool, but a mini fig couldn't really walk up them or anything.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Here is the stern from behind.  I am not yet happy with it, but because I am running out of piece (hence the reason the quarter deck isn't done), I have to wait for a BL order.
