    Mini junk

    When I read "junk", I expected a poorly made ship Nicely done, sir! This little guy would be right at home on the Yangtze.

    [MOC] The LEGO Castle of Captain Sabertooth

    I've had family over, and haven't had a chance to really look at it. I'll have something later on.

    6280 Armada Flagship Micro

    I have to give you props on this. You've made one of the worst ships ever made by Lego look something resembling decent!

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

    Thank you, kind sir! I immediately sat down and built one in LDD. Very clever work on your part, as usual. Maybe someday when I'm rich and famous, I can make it to one of these shows to see some of your ships in person. Keep up the amazing work!

    My first Pirate Moc

    I love the windows at the back, though I saw that before I saw the rest of the ship, and expected something much larger with how grand those windows look. It's a very unique choice that I think looks really great. Perhaps the captain has big plans for his future, or finds himself entertaining company on a regular basis? When I got back into Lego several years ago now, I initially used sails from the old sets, but I gave those up very quickly (partially because I couldn't believe how much the sails cost, partially because they're kind of restrictive). When I say "quickly", I mean to the point that by the time I finished my first MOC in its original configuration, it had custom sails. Fortunately, this site has a lot of great information on how to do pretty much everything. For instance, if you want to take a stab at your own sails, there's a very good tutorial here: Also, you might want to check out what is probably the most common hull building technique on this site, commonly referred to as the "Captain Greenhair Method". It can be kind of annoying, especially if you try to set it up in a digital design program, and takes a little tinkering, but the finished product looks great. I really like the old bow and stern hull pieces, but I've found they are typically best used for larger ships. The newer hull ends are readily adaptable to either large or small ships, IMO, and are typically easier to work with (especially at the stern). I still like the old ones, though, because I'm old and I like a challenge! It's good to see other ships coming out using them regardless of size. That you've built such a nice smaller ship on them is a testament to your capabilities. I'm looking forward to seeing where you go with your next project! I just noticed that you said you want a ship your son can play with without having to fix things constantly. If you're after that with your bluecoat ship, I advise against the Greenhair method as it's a little fragile. If you want a ship for yourself, though, you might want to examine it.

    Hull Section

    Right? Twelve years... this makes me want to go back and see what the oldest post on the site is

    [MOC] 58-gun Galleon of War "HMS Royal Intent"

    I see! Still, a very good effort, I quite like her. I also just noticed her stern ends with a middle hull piece. That doesn't happen very often here, and I'm always interested when I see one. There have been some very interesting ships designed that way, and this certainly falls into that category.

    [MOC] 58-gun Galleon of War "HMS Royal Intent"

    Impressive! Very well detailed, with a lot going on for a ship built on the standard hull. The color scheme looks great as well. I'd like to encourage you to step up a bit on your next project, and try to have the hull expand amidships, and contract towards the stern, as ships of that period tended to do. My only critique of this is that the hull is straight down the sides, but it would probably take so much work to change that for this ship that you'd essentially have to start from scratch. I think you'll be even more proud of the results if you do that.

    [MOC] 10-gun (full hull) pirate ketch "Pelican"

    I'm going to disagree with Roadmonkey. If you're following the sail plan in your August 29th post, you'll want to keep your mainmast where it is. If you're going to go with fewer sails up front, though, then you'll want to follow Roadmonkey's suggestion and move it forward.

    [MOC] Pirate-hunter Airship: Leviathan

    I always get a kick out of these! I especially like the little gangway that opens in the hull. A very clever touch!

    [MOC] 10-gun (full hull) pirate ketch "Pelican"

    I have to say, I prefer the yellow and white to the green and white. It looks really good, I hope you get a chance to build it!

    MOC - French Sloop

    I like it! Small, and decently detailed. I think Kurigan would be proud.

    The Great Caribbean Battle

    Holy crap! I just realized those are all built on rowboat hulls! Brilliant!
