    [WIP] HMS Redoubtable

    Yes, I see what you mean. I do have a place holder dark red at the bow, waiting for a tan to come in from Bricklink.The stern is likely to use it as well, maybe the longer one, like the Barracuda Bay BSB. Not sure yet exactly how it's going to look at the stern as of yet.

    [WIP] HMS Redoubtable

    The picture do make it seem a short, yeah. Doesn't look as short IRL. As it is, The hull is just over 100 studs long, with about 6 or so studs from the front sticking out. it's 26 studs at the widest point. The stern is likely to slope out a bit, but not much. I'm hoping it wont look as short and wide one the sides are built up, as they are going to be sloping in quite a bit. If by tiles you mean the cheese slopes, yeah, that is my plan exactly. EKnight

    [WIP] HMS Redoubtable

    Got some progress done, but now waiting on bricklink orders before I can really go much further. HMS Redoubtable HMS Redoubtable It gets quite wide at the middle, at least compared to what I have done previously. Not being constrained by the prefab hulls, and all that. Tose were just too small for this project. And here are some blown up shots to get a sense on how I constructed the bow.

    [WIP] HMS Redoubtable

    Hello Gents of Fortune, I have started working on what is going to be my largest sailing vessel. It's going to be a triple-decker, with a 100+ guns. (My brother built a 90 Gun ship last year, and I need to top it. I'm the one who is know for building boats, after all.) So here is the beginnings so far: HMS Redoubtable WIP HMS Redoubtable WIP HMS Redoubtable WIP by Elephant-Knight, on Flickr It's my first foray into building such a large ship without using the prefab hulls in any way. Bow is looking fairly good, but what do you all think? I'm going for 10210 Imperial Flagship colours, in case you didn't notice EKnight

    Pirates of Barracuda Bay Under Attack!

    I think Captain Redbeard will still win. He has survived this long, after all!

    THE PIRATE BAY IS GOING TO BE AN OFFICIAL LEGO SET!!!!

    I recently built a MOC based on the CBC, you can check it out here: Crossed Bones Clipper It's obviously much bigger than the set, but it more properly lives up to the clipper in the name. EKnight

    THE PIRATE BAY IS GOING TO BE AN OFFICIAL LEGO SET!!!!

    WooHoo! my set was shipped yesterday! Now, time to jump into this ongoing debate. The Cross Bone Clipper was my first pirate "ship" (3rd Pirate set overall). I got it when I was a wee lad of 7, so it holds a special place in my heart. I was quite happy to see it get a reference in this new awesome Pirate set. Taking a look at the Cross Bone Clippers box art, I see thus: Cross Bone Clipper box It's clear that Redbeard is in command. Our green vested person is the helmsmen in this picture, and our woman is standing nearest to the gun. From this, I think that the new Pirate Bay minifigure Robin Loot is the female from the set, as it seems to be her who is the "Former gunner of the Cross Bone Clipper" And that she is simply wearing the clothes from one of her shipmates. Just my two cents. But it's Lego. You could make that character Redbeard after a shave if your heart so desires EKnight

    Just ordered mine. Only had to stay up til 10:00. Got to love being in Western Canada. EKnight
  12. Can't really say I'm sold on that hull design, but I'm really digging that sail plan. Very unique, and still very reminisant of the original. I'll vote because I love pirate boats, and will always enjoy them! EKnight
  13. Words cannot describe how happy this makes me. Day 1 buy for me!!! EKnight

    [LEGO IDEAS] Maelstrom Pirate Ship Duel - PotC

    Those micro ships are beautiful. A great MOC, however, I see a little problem with it. One ship is going clockwise, the other is going counter clockwise. In the movie (And in the concept art) they are going the same direction. Your ships are going to crash together, and we won't get epic Jack Sparrow moments. EKnight
