It is very nice @Thomas Waagenaar can't wait to see it in real bricks. Will you be finishing the upper masts? Some parts are looking a little strange towards bow and stern, but that is to be expected and sometimes hard to avoid. 

Great Work! 

 

Thanks!

And yeah, I'll make the upper masts with real bricks, especially since I have no idea how much sag they will have due to weight of sails or anything (Especially since I want to go with full studding sails). So I'm just gonna keep that as last thing and maybe get some metal supports from the hardware store.

@SerenityInFire Thanks! So am I! Once IKEA & Co are done delivering the needed shelf space I can start bricklinking it all ^^

But in the end, it'll (hopefully) all be worth it! :P

@Thomas Waagenaar

It's a very nice looking vessel, I like how large it is, it should be a real beast once finished.

For the sagging, I think it can be solved with a few thread. by attaching them on the masts and on the hull, like on real sail ships.

Working on the modular lower hull for Fer Maiden. Hoping to have it completed over the weekend but, such is life building MOCs in reality vs Stud.io, I of course had to make revisions that required further brink link orders (and damned waiting....)

So far so good for the overall structure, but obviously the SNOT sloped sides being sturdy enough to handle will be key.

And yeah, definitely! Any suggestions for what types of rope would be the best to us? To get it to look right/neat?

For the ropes, I used to go to a model shop to buy them, but I guess any types of linen thread could do the job too, of diameters varying from 0.6mm to 2mm.

Agreed. I find I get rather stingy with the nice waxed modelshop thread, while cheaper options look almost just as nice. Some thick sewing thread might be the cheapest option, and still work very well.

Hi all, this is my first attempt at a brig using the 6280 prefab hull parts.  She still needs sails and perhaps a few swivel guns (she's only going to be a merchant vessel).

Merchant Brig WIP

It's heavily inspired by this MOC by @-DoNe-.  @Captain Green Hair's rigging tutorial has also been a big help! It's very much a WIP at this point. I'd love to hear your suggestions for improvement before I get too far into it!

I need help, I suck at making anything lego MOD because i'm mainly the guy who just follows the manual.  I am currently trying to modify the creator 3 in 1 ship by trying to combine the brick bounty and the new 21333 pirates of barracuda bay, i tried redoing the entire hull but that would turn out monumental since the end and back need colossal work since i would have to extend them by a couple of studs.  

from my understanding the LDD is not supported by lego and I was trying to go that route because i'm merging parts yes but I also want to order them from pick a brick/brickling.  Am I stuck doing this the old fashion way?  I must have literally downloaded and re read every single building instructions possible from Lego regarding pirates so I can learn building techniques but my problem is getting all organized and mixed and matching pieces from other sets without putting them back.  

I need a few pointers on what's a good way to get organized so I can focus on this and get the order in knowing Lego takes months to send out them out either way!!! 

 

Just and FYI gave up on the hull since that would take too much time, my idea is just stuck on adding a door, redoing some handrails, after measuring the sails, the brickseas bounty are the right size since the black seas barracuda reimagine are too big, I love the creator ship but I also want it with pre fab parts, once I realized that ninjago and other famous ship use a brick hulls I was perfectly find with leaving it as is and just completely focus on redoing the upper part.  I've been drawing the bricks so i can search for them later but my life would had been perfect with LDD or a CAD but need guidance on what to do.

I'm going at this too old school i literally drew an expansion for my imperial guards set from 2015 but haven't sat down yet to know what bricks to use and accessories to make this function.  My mind is at a blank now hehe i did not have this problem when I was a kid. heh thank you

Real life construction of L'Aurelie has begun. Hull section 1 of 4 has been completed. Waiting on the BL orders to start hull section 2/4.
More pictures, including a size comparison to the 3 in 1 creator pirate ship are on Flickr.

Please ignore the missing tile on the gunport. I forgot to put that on before taking the pictures :P
