    [MOC] Tintin Unicorn Ship

    My first post! My rendition of the Unicorn from Tintin (mainly based on the film). Just edited with better photos. Would love to hear your thoughts! And here's Tintin and Haddock with the Unicorn model - please forgive me using a cat for Snowy!!

    [MOC] Tintin Unicorn Ship

    Thanks everyone! I appreciate it! I never had blueprints so I just looked through lots of reference pictures on the internet and in the film. And for the bow and rear I used this https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=64651&name=Boat Hull Brick 16 x 13 x 2&category=[Boat]#T=C Also that Snowy figure is perfect, I'll have to try and get my hands on it if possible! Hi, there is a capstan it was just obscured by the minifigs for the most part. It's right behind the foremast, I just posted new pictures featuring it! And I'm glad the colours came out well! :)

    Wow, thank you! That's really kind of you, I didn't expect that! And the rigging is definitely a plan, I agree that lego ropes are definitely the way to go but sadly all I have are what's on there now! I've looked around on bricklink but they're really quite expensive to get I would definitely like to though, as they really add so much to the build, as I saw in this moc of the Unicorn from a while back We'll see what happens though!!

    Thanks, I really appreciate it!! Thanks!! I'm glad you think it did the job regarding accuracy! Thanks!! It went through a couple iterations but I'm satisfied!! :) Whoah, that's awesome! Where can I see that? And thanks!! Haha, what an absolute classic, hey!! I got sick of not seeing enough of the ship in LEGO (it's just so beautiful) so I had to make my own Have fun reading!! And yes sir!

    Thank you very much! I tried to make it almost like a big playset, without compromising the design. I'm glad you like it! And yes, Tintin is very nostalgic for everyone! Thanks, and yes the Unicorn is a truly beautiful ship! I chose the yellow colour to differentiate from the others out there as well as to make it more vibrant and contrasted, closer to the film's version than the comic's. The galleries were a pain but I'm satisfied in the end. I don't really have experience with rigging, I tried to before but I didn't have rope of the right thickness so maybe I'll give it a go eventually. And are you kidding, who wouldn't love Tintin!?
