English warship "Revenge" from 1577 in minifigscale 1:50

Recommended Posts

Dude, I don't know what to say, it is the best ship ever build I think! thumbup.gif

Will you be adding the decoration in the brown plate on the stern? Perhaps engrave it on a large tile or something? Would be really cool if that was also there I think.

She really is a spectacle. It looks so much like a wooden model those curves. pirate_wubnew.gif -sums it up

I think that it's simply one of the greatest MOC ship that I have ever seen; so many details, so many good ideas...

And the photoshoped image it's simply great, I put it as PC wallpaper screen (I don't know how tell this exactly in english, but I hope you can understand me default_wacko.gif ).

Friendly from Spain,

Commodore Ariel.

It looks very sturdy despite the tiled plates rounding the sides. How did you do that? Anyway, your ship is amazing!

Yeah I am still wondering how the bent tile plates can hold there... why do they not just popp off due to the pressure the bending induces... ?

I have also start a new project whit the Revenge inside ... a little bit :pir-sweet:

Astonishing! I can only join myself to all the compliments that have already been made!

I've a question though! I've seen the gray tower in your WIP photos that acts as conterweight for the curved structure. But how did you achieve this goal in the finished ship? Is the tower hide inside the aftcastle? And if not how do you proceed?

The counterweight was only needed for the construction time.

I first start with one side till the end to see if all ends well.

At this point started the copy for the other side and on the end both side force cancel each other.

Amazing! Especially nice with the minifigures. Great work, love your custom sails and rigging. Hull shape is nice and clean as well.

This is the best Lego ship I have ever seen. :excited: :excited: :excited: :excited: :excited: :excited: :excited:

Agreed, best ship from my pov, too. But nonetheless, judging by the time you spent here on EB, you should by now be acquainted with the rules about bumping old topics. Read here, please! Basically it says: Don't do it for no reason, dude!

@Captain Braunsfeld : this one is an old one but perhaps it could have some highlights more :pir_laugh2:

This is a nice piece of work. I don't remember seeing it when it came out all these years ago.
