[WIP] Jack Stone Hulled ship WIP experiment

Recommended Posts

I've wanted to MOC with those Jack stone hulls for quite some time now, and recently got my hands on a set, with an extra middle section too boot. easy and cheap way to get a large boat going, if you don't mind paying the shipping.

We'll see how much I work on this, I have a few other projects on the go at the moment (Like the Blacktron ship in the background)

Great shaping... Er... I'm puzzled by some LBG parts of the bow, the rounded ones. Were are they from ?

Those are part of the hull parts. rather difficult to work around.

I've always been curious about the MOCing potential of the 4+ Pirates sets.

The sets in their own right were hideous due to their excessive use of large parts but they I speculated they may have potential for use in larger builds.

There haven't been a great deal of Pirate MOCs utilising 4+ parts and not being a MOCer myself, I've had not feel inclined to experiment.

So it will be interesting to see how this ship turns out. :thumbup:

I love the use of these hull pieces! 
 I always wanted to try moc the early Harry Potter ship that used similar hulls. 
I think someone used them to moc a Flying Dutchman and to this day I think it’s still my favorite “lego” scale version of the ship iv seen.

I'm looking forward to seeing your progress in working with those hull pieces. I've always found their shaping to be quite interesting and full of potential.

Due to the excessive sloping/tumblehome at the bow, it looks like more of a "space frigate" to me (a' la Disney's Treasure Island) , rather than a "usual" age of sails ship. Still, you have managed to incorporate those 4+ pieces really seamlessly and one cannot easily discern where the big piece ends and where the small bricks start.

Interesting build. I have some hull parts, but never thought they could really be useful. Great job finding a use for them.
