Never :pir-wink:

Love the bilge pump Captain. So simple and yet so effective.

Those minifigs are great too. :thumbup:

As for the cannons, weren't you going to paint them black after engraving them?

Keep up the good work matey :thumbup:

Thanks!

I had intended to spray the old ones black, but i like the fact that the new colors sticks out well with the other colors, so i changed my plan...again. :pir-grin:

Looking superb Captain Green Hair!

I love those minifig pants, they are very unique. Good work on the pump too. The combination of the new pearl dark grey cannons and the brown bases looks stunning. I hope TLG will make some more new bases in different colors.

I eagerly await the next update.

I have made some 17th century figures, thanks to Mijasper for the legs design.

Please please please please don't use these minifigs.

It's Lego and well found of mijasper... but they absolutely don't go with the other minifigs IMO.

Please think it over Green Hair.

Time for a little update, just before the first anniversary of the project. :pir_laugh2:

I've finished the first ''berghout''. (The black line)

This is an important moment, as the rest of the ship will follow that line.

Looking forward to the stern. :thumbup:

CGH, I love the way you have turned the studs from upside down to right way up.That is certainly the best technique I've seen for a few weeks. I'm in love with the idea of using those SNOT parts. Ingrnious buddy!

Well done. :thumbup:

Thanks guys!

Last night i did some more and put the Lion just about where it should be:

That gives her a bit grandeur and it also shows the full length without the bowsprite as the headrails run in between the lion and the bow.

C&C are welcome!

...and also shows the full length without the bowsprite as the headrails run in between the lion and the bow.

But we can't see the full length. Could you take a photo of the full ship with your addition?

That's so bloody big man, not normal anymore!

Perhaps you could throw in a little cousin or something like that for size comparison? :pir_laugh2:

Dear CGH,

the black line looks amazing. :thumbup:

Are you planning to tile over the studs on the side?

Or do you leave all/some of them to represent copper nails?

The black line looks really good on those photos. :pir-wub:

Only nitpick could be the last seven 1x1x1 snot bricks at the bow.

The line seems to wobble a bit at the end, and end a bit to low, but that could be the camera angle.

Keep it up. And congrats with the first anniversary of your beautyfull ship.

Kind regards,

Teddy

Awesome CGH! It reveals the height of the ship a bit, now it really looks like a massive project!

Keep this wonderful build up! :thumbup:

Awesome job CGH. :thumbup:

The updates look really cool as always.

I have to agree with Teddy on the last seven bricks at bow though.

Other than that everything looks perfect

But we'll discuss your ship in other places.

Keep up the good work :pir-wink:

Horrible indeed, the thunderstorm was even above our house, in Friesland...

Anyway, the burning news has already been frontpaged and there is a thread about it here.
