  1. A nice looking layout Mesabi! I really like the shaping of the yellow building. In the real world, Europe would have been much more built up, then say the Caribbean or the Bahamas, so I think it works pretty well.

    Speed Champions Wishlists and Future Speculation

    This would be awesome! Or more McLaren sets in general. IDK... Toyota is bringing back the Supra and Honda has the NSX. Those are both pretty popular cars. I'd really like to see Koenigsegg get a small lineup. Something alone these lines maybe? The CCXR or ONE:1
  4. I get what your saying... Do you think I could at least get away with a class 6 or would a class 5 be the limit? Thanks! Thank you! I agree, however all the brown pieces that I have could fit into the palms of my hands... not really enough for serious shipbuilding...
  5. Barque 5 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr @Bregir: Could you please direct me to the right class for the above vessel? I was thinking class 7 based on hull length, but now I'm not quite so sure. Thanks!
  6. Thank you! Yeah, I'll go ahead and do that. That makes sense... I thought class 8's though were the ones that stated a 2 deck minimum, at least that's what it says in the about ships page...
  7. Thank you! Yeah, I was looking through my pieces and thought, hmm... never seen handcuffs on a ship bow! As too class size... She's bigger than any class 5 I've built. Using hull measurements, a class 5 has 3 to 4 midsections and two end pieces. That puts it at about approximately 15 inches on hull length. For a class 6, 5 hull sections for a single decked vessel puts it at about approximately 17.5 inches on hull length. I went with the class 7 because the hull on her is 24 inches long and with the bowsprit she is pushing 32 inches. This photo gives a little better perspective on her true length.
  8. Schooner "Northern Gannet" Coming all the way from the Corrington mainland, the double masted schooner "Northern Gannet" is a sight to behold. Barque 6 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Barque 7 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr The "Northern Gannet" was built by Richard Brickford as a trade ship for Brickford Enterprises to haul corn and grain throughout the Brick Seas. Richard, the mayor of Quinnsville knows that seeing this ship sailing into Queens Bay can only mean one thing; his wife has finally joined him in the new world! Barque 11 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Richard was rowed out to meet her before she makes it into the port. He's excited to see her, but realizes he'll need to commission a large house than the one that he currently lives in! ---------------------------------- After much thought and consideration and lots of failed techniques, I was finally able to create a ship that I am rather proud of! While building it I remembered that Richard has a wife on the mainland and that she needed to join him eventually in their new home of Quinnsville. As usual, C&C are welcome and apprecieated and thanks for looking! There are a few more photos and different angles over on my flickr!

    I personally like the more realistic aspect of BoBS. It would be cool to maybe expand it slightly, but I don't think steam ships and stuff like that would really be a match in my opinion. Interesting question though Mesabi!
  10. Hmm… I wonder that too... if that is the case given the current status of the rules that would make it quite easy to build an army...
  11. Gonna say this is per settlement. If you re-read it, the limit is based on settlement size.

    A great looking build Ayrlego! I really like the landscaping as well and the hut looks fantastic!

    Hello everyone by FBros! :)

    Welcome to Eurobricks!
  14. Some more progress has been made! I quite like how the stern is looking now. Barque 2 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Barque 3 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Barque 4 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr I plan to add lots of rigging to her, but unfortunately I only have peach colored string, so... yeah... I may rig her up in peach or get some black or white. Don't know yet.
