[MOC] Armada Brig

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody!

after seeing the wonderulf WIP "The Parrot" I wanted to share my old MOC on the small white hull pieces of the 6280 as well:

The Armada Brig

The ship is build only with original Lego-parts except a few more strings and it was the first one I build using all the modern slopes.

Therfore I was very proud of the bow which was raised by to rows of slopes and the working achor mechanism there.

The captains cabin can be opened from top. It includes a big table, a collection of flags taken from all the different sunk ships and all the other stuff a captain needs:

The spanker sail is made out of two of the 6280 sails as well:

Take a look at my Flickr Album Armada Brig to see more datailed fotos!

I am looking forward on your thoughts on the ship, please consider its already 3-4 years old, from my time I just came back to Lego :pir-huzzah1:

Ummm, don't you mean "spinnaker"?

Hm, I am no native english speaker but I am referring to the nearly square sail (built out of two triangular sail from 6280, best seen on the 5th foto) at the aftmost mast which is in the direction of the ship, i think another name is "driver sail" Wikipedia Spanker.

A very good upgrade of a very underwhelming set.  The original was (IMO) one of the worst sets Lego ever made.  If they'd put this out instead, I'd have had a very different opinion of that line.

I love the details that you've added, like the chandelier in the captain's cabin and the skylight.  I might suggest getting some brick built cannons, though, so you can have fewer empty gunports :-)

Thank you for the great compliment! :pir-huzzah2: Really nice Ship you have there. Gives the old Ship from 1997 a Look it deserves. :pir-love:

Nice ship!

Album lacks 2-3 good side pictures of the ship.

Thats a good point, I will make some better when I catch some more sunlight next time!

When I was a child I had the same opinion (it was also the lonely pirates opponent) as well because the pirateships are mostly bigger but today I kind of like the set especially how they put all the 4 main colours in and for me it works.

When I built it I did not like the brick build cannons at all but with time I changed my mind. Unfortunately I dont own a lot of wedge plate 2x3. Probably I can build some before making the side pictures...

Great vessel !

I like how you gave her more length and how you manage to get a better sail plan with only official sails !

We would love to see a better view of the ship ! The 1st picture is taken from too far and from too high IMO. Try to get closer and low down a little bit and I'm sure we would have a Frontpage killer picture ! :thumbup:

An excellent vessel that deserve more pictures !
