    Definitely as a once active player and current mediocre lurker I can say that there's lots of support behind the scenes. Which is convenient for jumping back into the game without being lost assuming one can find the time for pirate shenanigans when they aren't building train displays lmao.

    So Many great details on this ... Is there more to the buildings?

    [WIP] HMS Victory in mini figure scale

    This is excellent... One thing grossly overlooked in most models

    I know I'm late to the game here but I don't get on too much lately. But the beautiful thing about Lego is you "can" just rest the board inside a model and not worry about it shorting out. I do recommend covering the board in some sort of insulation sleeve though. I run lighting boards in some of my locos and they have gotten hot enough to leave little pin pricks in the side of the bricks they rest against before I installed heat shrink. (I also run my trains for several hours continuously at shows) Edit : love what you did for the tram
  9. I heard rumor Capt Larvey may be in the market for a new ship ..
  10. I've never tackled a full brick built hull ... Definitely have done some half hulls for vinettes but never a full ship. CaptainGreenhair did an excellent tutorial a long time ago on using the prefab hulls, Sebeus also had a wonderful method using prefab hulls ... I'm sure someone not on mobile can link to those gentlemen. There have been countless others since them to use similar methods (they just stand out because they were my inspiration). There is definitely no right or wrong ... I've seen some awesome cartoonist style ships on a rowboat and I've seen some that can hold a candle to a wood ship kit. It's all about what your goal is ... Do you want realism or more Lego style with the oversized cabin and bow ...
  11. Tons of great techniques in this ... The corner doors is my favorite. Also it's great to know that hands fit through the chains

    Interesting use of the road plate
  13. Wow just wow ... So many excellent details in all of this ... How long did the renders take?
  14. What setting are you using for the glowing lantern and fire ... I've not had any luck with the lighting effects.
  15. @Ayrlego do you have a link to the other build your white tower became a part of?
