The Miss Elizabeth and the Cliffs of Bricksburg

The Governor has sent his payroll gold down to Colonel Brickburns for safekeeping before being shipped off in an Imperial Guard's Man-of-War. The villainous Captain Quincy Jones has come to town in his Schooner the Miss Elizabeth to level the house and claim the Governor's gold for himself.  Now a battle rages between the red coat garrison and Captain Quincy's buccaneers.

The Miss Elizabeth of Marblehead:
The dread captain Quincy Jones has set his sights on the Governor's payroll being held in the Colonel's personal home, leaving First Mate William Gears in command of the Schooner Miss Elizabeth.  Armed with her two six pounders and four swivel guns she is a force to be reckoned with for sure! Do you drop anchor and bombard the town, or spread all sail, put rudder to wind, and leave the captain to his own fates in redcoat prison?  The ship is yours! you decide!

Miss Elizabeth features fully modular sails.

The Cliffs of Bricksburg:

The Cliffs of Bricksburg are an ominous view for any mariner who might have the towering rocks on their lee. Captain Quincy Jones however, is leading a raid on nun-other than the Colonel's mansion with his eyes fixated on the Governor's payroll gold!  Will the Redcoat sentry react in time to sink the captains dingy before he can reach the dock?  Can the Captain wrestle the gold away from the Governor's henchman and the brave Redcoat soldiers or will the gallows be in his near future? You decide!

I wanted to thank Bonaparte and Eurobricks for putting on this competition that I have greatly enjoyed.  To Frank Brick Wright as well for competing with me and becoming a great friend.

This was an awesome project, lots of fun planning, building and getting to know my partner. Mr. Townsend build a terrific ship with and incredible shape and rigging and I got a great friend in the process! I'm really pleased with the finished product. Thanks so much to Bonaparte for holding this contest and giving us the opportunity to know other builders!

A ship is floating in the harbour now,

The wind is hovering o'er the mountain's brow;

There is a path on the sea's azure floor,

No keel has ever ploughed that path before

I like the idea of a cliff set. And the Miss Elizabeth is lovely.

I love that beautiful schooner,
clever way to connect the sections via the water surface,
The land section goes well with the ship, wel done!

This looks great! I love the sails. And there's a lot of cool detail going on the cliff side!

This is a lovely schooner. So simple yet so well executed. Of course I love the cloths sails that change state.

Love the rigging, sails and the way the masts are lent back.
