  1. A simple matter of math

    Captain Greenhair shows his brilliance again with the beautiful French 64! Nice work on the frigate as well!
  2. Pirates of the Carribean 5 Sets Discussion

    The silent Mary is heavily based on the French ship La Couronne of 1636. Here is a website about the ship. http://www.historicships.com/TALLSHIPS/Corel/La Couronne SM17/La Couronne SM17.htm You can also google image search "La Couronne ship" and see some great models of it.
  3. General Pirates of the Caribbean Theme Discussion Thread

    I wish this topic would go cold until someone posted with official pictures!! I'm tired of seeing a post and it not showing anything! Kind of a hypocritical post for me!
  4. Build a frigate with Captain Green Hair

    Maybe this bump will inspire more great Mocs to be built! Such a great tutorial!
  5. [MOC] Ship ''Halve Maen'' 1606 in minifig scale

    Again you have raised the bar!!! Seems to me I've gotta go minifig scale now!!!! She turned out excellent my friend! Keep innovating!
  6. 94 gun, somewhat-to-scale ship of the line. LDD MOC.

    No offense but is this suppose to be a fantasy style ship or a historically accurate ship? If it is suppose to be a historically accurate ship then I would say you need to do more research on the subject. It looks more like a steampunk airship to me than a ship of the line.

    It's so good to see a new ship from you. And of course it doesn't disappoint. The sails are perfect in color and shape and the skin color strake is perfect. It's always great seeing a build from a master builder and a great friend. Long live the CGH technique!
  8. [OL-FB4] The Tigre arrives

    The paint back then was actually very good. It was lead based, which was bad. But salt water absolutely destroys everything. I own and have owned several ocean boats and I am constantly cleaning, replacing and repainting certain things onboard that salt water has ruined. But that is the nature of the beast that is the ocean!
  9. [OL-FB4] The Tigre arrives

    You can't go wrong with the white, black, blue, yellow with red gunport color scheme! I like how when the ship of the line arrived it was in a deteriorated state. Many ship of the lines sat in port and were rarely used in peace time as they were expensive to man and operate. So sometimes they needed refits and complete overhauls before they were seaworthy again. If you read the accounts of the HMS Bellona, you would learn that after a cruise, Her paint had almost completely washed away, and her poop deck had almost been completely swept away by the seas. Very cool story to have a worn ship and not a newly built ship!
  10. [ESL-FB5] Class 5T Heart of Eslandia

    Bregir I'm not sure if you understand why I mentioned the vasa. I was using it as an example of the curvature of the ships hull (sheer) vs the curvature of the gunports. I know vasa was a failed ship. If it had been 5 ft wider it would have changed the course of history. But it was only used as an example for early ship design, being an easy source for people to google, research etc.
  11. [ESL-FB5] Class 5T Heart of Eslandia

    You are correct about the hull curvature vs the gun port orientation. Most people fail to realize that the gunports do not follow the hull curvature exactly. Some ships had completely flat decks compared to their horizontal curve. While some ships gunports curve up slightly as they go fore and aft, but it did not exactly follow the sheer of the ship. And as weird as it sounds the gunports usually curved upwards more towards the bow rather than the stern. One reason. It's called seaworthiness. Now some older ships, example the Vasa, had very curved decks and so the ports almost followed the sheer exactly. But vasa came along at the start of the age of sail.
  12. Naval Action PC game

    I think everyone is 6 months behind here.... Joking aside, the beta on this game was amazing. I can't wait until they release the full game. Maybe they have and I'm the one behind!

  14. Custom sails (more realistic colors)?

    Haha ok. But I can assure you that they will not smell like coffee n tea for very long. Especially if you follow my step by step!
