  1. Yes, that might be a good solution. I would have hesitated more, but as it only is for the decorations and the golden elements tend to have a lot of deviations in colour anyways, I think this is the way to go. I already glued some pieces together or cut some in half, though always hidden by the finished result.
  2. A lovely story. One of the few situations less Lego is acceptable.
  3. I will probably finish the Argonaut close to the end of January. I have to order more bricks to complete the missing yards, studding sail booms, guns and the rudder. Within the next days I will prepare the missing square sails, though course sail on the main mast will most likely be completely furled up. I really can't tell why I insist to add reef lines, if nobody will see them anyways. Again a few things bother me with her, but overall I'm happy and learned a lot for future ships. Currently the yards seem to be too much of equal length, but adding the studding sail booms could fix that. We'll see. @KotZ Bregir has a good point there. As you can see, I don't use a prefab bow on my frigate. The old ones were just one piece, so you either had to raise the level of brown bricks in the middle like shown in Captain Green Hair's tutorial or live with it. I removed it and tried to brickbuild the bow, which resulted in a lot of gaps. While this one is quite sleek, plain but elegant, without unnecessary decorations, I want to go for a more decorated stern next. I have two ships already planned out in my head. One will be the HMS Leopard. It is just too expensive, so I will have to wait. Maybe then the required parts will exist in the desired colours. Until then I can think about how to improve the stern, working on the scale of the figurines.

    [WIP] “L’Anubis” - 3rd Rate Ship of the Line

    Such an elegant solution to do the headrails! Well done.
  5. Good luck! Very close to the method I am using:

    [MOC] HMS Midway

    I love this build. Very nostalgic. You really catched the spirit of the old Lego Pirate series and enhanced it. The ropes add much to the overall appearance.

    [MOC] Captain Redbeard faces budget cuts

    Reading the title I thought you would complain about the decrease in printing quality on Captain Redbeard's face over time.

    [COR-FB] The Delphinus Orca

    Congratulations on such a fine start in ship building. I'm really looking forward to what else you can pull off! Great hull technique that I haven't seen so far.

    [GoC] Class 4 Xebec - Dirty Rat

    This one is really beautiful. The main mast could be taller, the shrouds can stay as they are, I think. I'm not very familiar with Xebecs, so I leave it with that. Kurigan already explained everything well already anyways.

    [MOC] Ship updates

    @evancelt Yes, they are. It is a technique I saw at @kurigan's 'Nuisance'. Originally it seems to stem from @SlyOwl.

    [MOC] Ship updates

    I reworked to of my older ships, the 'Lipizzana' and the 'Lydia'. Also I built a little steam tugboat and had some fun with a Fabuland rowboat. As the first two ships already are posted in the BoBS-subforum and the other two are too simple to deverse an own thread, I thought to share them all here. I added a jib- and a topsail, anchors and a little hatch: I removed the bowsprit and the two foresails from the 'Lydia': The tugboat: This one is more of a fun build. Whenever I decide to add sails, I'll probably use another solution for mast and rigging:

    @evancelt Yes, I made them. I will see, if I have the pattern laying around, it was just some red paper, using the torso as a template. I also added a link to the pictures.

    @Spud The Viking That would work. Go for it. Just the Temple though as I have done the Gallery just now.
