my first moc ship

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,
after having introduced myself I am here to share with you the construction of my first ship that still does not have a name.
the base from which I started, as you can see from the hull, is the black pearl.

the idea is to inspire me to the black pearl, but without faithfully creating the ship of the film .... in fact, my ship will be different both in form and colors.

For the project, being a little expert, I started with the techniques of the captain green hair, which I thank very much for this resource.

I do not pretend to create a historical ship, but a fantasy ship that is, however, realistic.

The ship "should" be a cross between a small frigate and a brig.
The hull includes the bow, 3 intermediate sections, while the stern will be made only with the pieces I have available.

At the moment the armament provides 12 guns, but I'm considering to insert others on a further bridge ... if I advance the pieces to build it :)

I share with you the first images of this work, where you can see that the sides have been created, I still have to design the stern and the bow.

I await from you, experts, a positive or negative opinion of the work done up to now and possible suggestions.

thank you very much, Giuseppe

Welcome to EB, peppe1983!

Looks like the ship is coming along nicely so far and I look forward to seeing more as you build.

It is a bit hard to see the details, and I see you've just uploaded those images to Eurobricks directly, so I'll mention that the paperclip/upload option on Eurobricks is only for very small images to be used in your signature line here on the board.  You only get 100K total, so even 1 regular image probably pushed you to the limit of available space.  For sharing photos of MOCs, etc., you'll want to use a 3rd party service and I think most folks would recommend Flickr.

Here's a tutorial on linking/embedding Flickr images in your posts: http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/97921-flickr-tutorial/

Thanks for sharing - happy building!

Thank you Deraven

I am happy to have joined your community :D

Yes, in fact the photos are too small, the next I will post with that method.

Meanwhile, I wanted to ask a question about the construction.

Since for the sides I used the technique of hinges and jumper ... How do I connect all the sections of wall where there is the difference of half plate forward? (because of the jumper)

Hi guys, then I went ahead in the construction, I started designing the stern. I'm going freehand, looking at the MOCs and photos of real ships.

I would like an opinion on how the temporary version of the stern is coming from the side of the ship. The version of the stern is still temporary, especially in the colors of the connection between the stern and side, which must be adjusted to soften the gap between black and gray.

A greeting, joseph

 

I try to post photos with image shack

Hi guys, I made some progress, I even finished the stern and almost finished the bow ... I did the sides of different colors, because I can't decide on the final coloring :)

I await your positive or negative feedback regarding the topic and colors before moving on ....

I also have 2 doubts about the construction:

1) How can I join the normal sides to those that are positioned on the jumpers?

2) Is there a clean way to join the last sloping sides (thanks to the hinges) with the bow?
