    I don't think I could make something half as good looking, even if I had all the bricks in the world and a 1 year to do in! Incredible model, great details, and so cool looking! Keep up the fantastic work!
  6. Class 2 - HMS "Barracuda" [COR]

    Thank you very much! Thank you! I actually started with the trading ship from the old imperial trading post (set #6277). I then lengthened and widened the hull and completely redid the bow and stern. To accommodate for widening it, I used the large slopes at the front and back on both sides to give the ship a fuller look. Then I modified the mast from my brigantine (pictured in my signature below) to fit just right. I'm glad that you like it! Thank you! Yeah, I was never really happy with how they turned out. I may remove them before I picture it in anymore posts. Thanks for the feedback! I saw the crows nest design on another lego ship while browsing the internet, I had to modify it slightly for it to work in LDD, but I think it turned out great!

    To me, anything round built with lego is both hard to do and when done right, really impressive! This is one of my new favorite models, great work on getting the round shape perfect!

    Man, that is awesome looking! Every angle shows some new details. My favorite is probably the mime getting arrested! Fantastic work!
  9. HMS Naval Cutter "Barracuda" of the Corrington Navy Imperial Cutter (IC) The HMS "Barracuda was built at the start of the Juniper War in 607 AE. It was crafted completely out of wood from the Juniper Province as a sign of Corrington's ownership on the land. In the terrible conflict that ensued this little ship was to be a most notable annoyance to the enemies of Corrington. It's small size and fast speed allowed the Corrington Marines to perform several blitz attacks on unsuspecting seaport towns and ships, especially when painted black for night missions. It only boasted a broadside of two 4 pounders, but what it lacked in firepower it made up for with speed. After the Juniper war it remained in service until being de-commissioned in 615 AE to make way for newer ships. It was sent to an auction in Arlinsport and was promptly bought by a local fisherman - for a fraction of it's value - to be used for fishing and hauling small amounts of cargo for extra cash. The owner was about to scrap it after he no longer needed it, but a young adventurer named Lieutenant Nathaniel Brickford saw it in the harbor and offered twice what the scrapyard was willing to pay for it. He had heard many stories about this little ship from his father and grandfather (both veterans of the Juniper war), and he hoped he could restore this forgotten icon to its former glory. (OOC) I hope you enjoyed this ship's backstory! This is my first of many ship MOCs. I decided to make a small lightly armed class 2 naval cutter. Limited only by size (per the rules and wanting to take full advantage of my free license!), I think I have made a nice starting vessel for my journey on the Brick Seas. I don't really have too much to say regarding it. It mostly speaks for itself because everything about it is visible, so here are just some additional pictures of it. Enjoy! Questions, comments, and constructive criticism are always welcome!

    Wow! Great looking micro build! I would be interested in seeing something like this in minifigure scale, however it would probably be to massive!
  11. [MOC] Modular: Dock Inn

    Awesome! Can't wait to see it!
  12. Ok, that won't be a problem. Just need to make some more renders! Thank you! Yes, I can think of a nice background story for my ship. I've already got some ideas flowing!
  13. Yes, the Corrington history was really what made the choice easy. Powerful nation, ahead of it's time and other factions. I'm here to help keep it that way! Ok, I only did it because I did want to spend a week building just to make my story come to life. I have no intentions of using other peoples work moving forward, I'll keep it to only my own personal builds! Thank you for the advice!
  14. Could someone could direct me to the proper place to register/claim a Class 2 ship please? Thanks in advance!
  15. Ok, good to know! I figured I would start at Arlinsport first, get a ship, and then move to more populated (or less populated) island to really start my journey. Thanks for the info! Thank you! Yes, I tried to make my intro vaguely detailed so I could expand on it however I felt necessary. I will most definitely check out and read all of those resources! I will be sailing to one of those three "active" areas before to long. Yes, there is lots to take in! I'm sure it will take a few weeks to "fully" grasp everything going on around me. Thanks for all the help! Thanks! I think I'm going to have lots of fun in building and story telling. Thanks again for the warm welcome!
