    LEGO Ideas: The Pirate Bay!!

    This would be one of the greatest Ideas sets if it passes review. I would buy it in a heartbeat.\ EKnight

    Pirate ship WIP

    Yup. Got another one coming. This is what happens when I don't build a new boat in a year and a half. I just start building them back to back to back, non stop almost. I've also had a decent amount of free time. This current WIP is a pirate ship, going off of the colour scheme of the Cross Bone Clipper. It was my first Pirate boat, so it holds a lot of nostalgia for me.

    Pirate Support Ship

    Ship building continues for me. This ship was just a quick build. It is after all just a recolouring of the Imperial Flagship, in Skulls Eye Schooner colours. I think it looks snazzy. Pirate Support ship. by Elephant-Knight, on Flickr Pirate Support ship. by Elephant-Knight, on Flickr Yes, to properly match the colours of the Schooner, the lanterns should be blue, but lets face it, blue just doesn't look right. Green looks so good.

    Spanish Galleon Enviar

    Progress has been good. Hull and masts are done, other than a few parts yet to arrive from Bricklink. Time to rig it up and set the sails. Enviar WIP by Elephant-Knight, on Flickr Enviar WIP by Elephant-Knight, on Flickr EKnight

    Spanish Galleon Enviar

    Those who follow me on Flickr will have already seen this WIP. Those same people should also know I like building creations based on official Lego sets (like most space themes, blacktron especially, castle themes, and of course, Pirates) My current WIP boat is a Spanish galleon, based on this one built by my dad before I was born, but which is now mine.

Well, that's the colours of the Armada Flagship, so it's what I'm going with. EKnight

    HMS White Card (Now finished!)

    The HMS White Card is now all finished, and ready to sail. HMS White Card by Elephant-Knight, on Flickr HMS White Card by Elephant-Knight, on Flickr HMS White Card by Elephant-Knight, on Flickr Pictures were taken at my workplace, and we have some pretty powerful fans in the shop, so I stuck one behind it, so see what would happen. Ship didn't fall apart, and got some nice billowing on the rear sails. HMS White Card by Elephant-Knight, on Flickr A close up on the headrails, as requested. HMS White Card by Elephant-Knight, on Flickr HMS White Card by Elephant-Knight, on Flickr HMS White Card by Elephant-Knight, on Flickr HMS White Card by Elephant-Knight, on Flickr Tell me what you all think! I personally feel it's my best ship to date, but I say that with most of my ships EKnight

    HMS Horshwaddle

    Thanks for the appreciative comment! The figurehead came from a loose lot of Lego I got many years, but came from Freestyle sets back in the 90s, I think. EKnight

    HMS Horshwaddle

    So after finishing the White card, I went right ahead and continued my Imperial fleet. This ship took only two days from start to finish, but considering I went a very different route than the White Card, It shouldn't be surprising. HMS Horshwaddle by Elephant-Knight, on Flickr I intentionally went for a very set like aesthetic. having an extra main sail and spanker from the 90s Imperial flagship kicking around was a big incentive. (The lack of rigging is also what made this ship a two day build.) HMS Horshwaddle by Elephant-Knight, on Flickr HMS Horshwaddle by Elephant-Knight, on Flickr Sailing aside the Flagship for comparison. HMS Horshwaddle by Elephant-Knight, on Flickr The octopus looks a little tacked on, but half the reason for the octopus being there is related to my Pirate comic. It makes sense in context, I guess. HMS Horshwaddle by Elephant-Knight, on Flickr As always, comments are appreciated! EKnight

    HMS White Card (Now finished!)

    Regardless on whether or not I am satisfied with the stern or not, I am calling the ship done for now. Sails are made, rigging is complete. Just need to take some better pictures. A task for this weekend. HMS White Card by Elephant-Knight, on Flickr I'm kind of thinking I made the sails a touch small. Any thoughts? EKnight

    HMS White Card (Now finished!)

    Got more progress done. Rigging is about 80% the way, Hull is pretty much complete. I'm not 100% sold on the stern still, but I'm happy enough. HMS White Card WIP by Elephant-Knight, on Flickr HMS White Card WIP by Elephant-Knight, on Flickr EKnight

    HMS White Card (Now finished!)

    I took in the advice to take away the outward sloping sides of the cabin. I left the height as is, for I really like it. I do however have a problem with colouring the side of the cabin now. Got to options, as seen below. Stern option A by Elephant-Knight, on Flickr Stern Option B by Elephant-Knight, on Flickr I think I may put a black plate underneath the windows, just to break up the white a bit, and make the windows pop more. A great name suggestion, but too Frenchy . In my mind the Blue Coats are the more French types, and this is a Red Coat ship. I may however just go with White card.
