    MOC: Le Fleuron, 1729 third rate French ship of the line.

    It's a 1x1 plate with ring that attaches the fence piece to the upper deck. Ah, the black and brown is mostly the same width. The lighter colour just appears thicker I guess. The main stays are twice as thick even. Same as I've always done my rigging. It's old cotton cloth I dye with coffee and tea. Then when it's dry I use white glue to stiffen it. Thick layer on both sides. When that is dry you can iron the cloth and draw/cut the sails without tearing it. I make all the rigging by hand, there is a 1000+ knots in there so it takes a bit of patience. Ah yeah, my hair was real nice that day.😂 You can look up my build a frigate tutorial under the tutorial section. That might be helpful. You may always send me a message if you get stuck at some point. Please do elaborate when you do do I can understand, pictures can also help with that. Good luck!

    What an absolutely beautiful model you have made! For the roof I'd go with dark grey, it fits the model better in my opinion.

    How to Design a Modular or a Non-Modular Building?

    Usually I start by looking at pictures online, many of a single subject. Then I take all the parts I like from my examples and throw these in the mix to create my building. I alwas start with thinking out Doors and Windows so these all fit, then I build the rest. It's always good to think of details you want to incorporate before you start, so you don't have to redo parts later. Good luck!👍

    Thank you guys!😊 Thanks! Can you tell me what you think is off in the rigging? All hiding in the rum hold off course😂

    Thank you for all the kind words guys, I appreciate it! No no no, your eyes are lying to you! They can hold a canopy to keep the stairs below it dry. Perhaps I should add an actual canopy..hey great idea, thanks! The large ones are made from a pin joiner and a black palm tree trunk. I have explained the smaller ones in my sloop topic called El Gran Grin. You are correct sir, you may proceed to the next round! It wasn't my original idea I think, but I forgat where I stole it..
  6. Yargh me harties, I be here to show you me latest ship model. It is the third rate ship of the line Le Fleuron, launched in 1729. It has 64 cannons and an able crew of 333 men. This wooden model by the plans of Gerard Delacroix inspired me to build this model. Next a close-up of the stern, as you can see the gunports on portside are closed: If we take a look from the headrails, we can see she is ready to fire a full broadside on the starboard. You may also notice I used tiles to widen the hull this time. A close-up of the stern. If you look through the windows you can see the upper gundeck has a full interior and so does the cabin above it. A brids eye gives a nice view on the extensive rigging, masts and sails. The lower sails are functional and I tried to make a hastily reefed sail on the front of the bowsprit. A first look into the upper gundeck, you can see the pumps behind the main mast. Another fun fact is that there isn't a single reddish brown brick used in this model. On the other side we can see the galley behind the bell post.The cook is preparing spicy chicken wings. I made the campaign deck rounded, so that a minifig can stand at the helm whilst keeping the sides of the ship a few plates lower. And last the interior of the upper cabin, a bed and a table nothing really special. That's it mateys, I hope you enjoy it. C&C welcome, thank you for watching!

    HMS Ontario version 2

    Fantastic work! Indeed some of these ships came with oars, imagine having to row that... I do see one possible improvement, the gallerie windows should be angled. Seeing how you made them it should be possible to put the yellow plates offset around the glass. I hope that makes sense.

    MOC: Ding Dong Alley, a western layout

  11. Howdy Folks! For last years Brickmania Antwerp, me, Kabel, Captain Braunsfeld, Loves houses and Legostone teamed up to do a Wild West layout. You might have visited and seen it, or saw pictures of it here in the forum (I can't seem to find pictures of the whole damn thing, so post 'm if ya got 'm). Today I want to show you my contribution; Ding Dong Alley. Why is it called Ding Dong Alley? Just because it sounds cool. My part of town attached directly to Kabels to the side street left to the saloon. The others where just, well, all over the place. Let's start of with an overview: And then the 4-4-0 locomotive, modelled after the Leviathan: The first car is a cattle car: The second one is a passenger coach, I am really happy how I dropped the 9 volt motors into the frame: Then a transport wagon with 2 cavalry field cannons (same as behind the covered wagon): And the last is ofcourse a caboose: Along side the track is a small freight station: And a water tower: A friendly group of Indians has set up camp to the east (this part used to be bigger with rocks and all, but I needed the parts...): The sherrifs are having a shootout wit some bad guys in the alle (in the whole thing we had about a hundred sherrifs I think haha): A band of Union soldiers is riding through town: The stage coach delivers mail and locked packages? In the Saloon there is a bit of a brawl going on. Glass is flying through the windows and the owners swiftly kick out te troublemakers while the ladies that work there wave at men from the balcony. In the alley next to the Saloon is the military contracting office: On the other side of the Saloon is the Drug store. I was planning to make store signs, but it didn't happen,so: And next to that is the General store: And as last, the back of the Alley: Well that's all folks!
