    Flying Dutchman

    Finally, it's finished! I remember that old video you posted. Did that lego ideas ever really got off? We need a Flying Dutchman set really.

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

    Oh how very delighted to see work from you again! I remember you back in the day making great mocs that were for its time outstanding (and still do look impressive). To see a built which is modern in a sense and very accurate to the real life counterpart from you, is a very nice surprise. Amazing how you managed to make such a convincing build out of a standard hull. Would be nice to see it with everything under the waterline.

    [MOC] Circa 1712 36-gun East Indiaman 'Duke of York"

    That would actually make for a good set to sell! I would buy it most definitely. I saw the Götheborg at the Amsterdam sail 2010, and this absolutely captures her likeness. Yes, this should be a set.

    [MOC] Pirate-hunter Airship: Leviathan

    Very nice smooth shape! Would almost beg you to make an actual 18th century ship out of it. Show us how you did that curvature on the vessel!
  5. Hi there,

    I thought I'd lost you! I have fond memories as a kid watching your lovely star wars and indiana jones themed three part series in lego. I was wondering where did they go? I couldn't find your channel and videos anymore (they were at the top when you searched "Lego Pirates") but all of the sudden I remembered your name and got on this profile.

    Kind regards,

    Jisk

    English 3th rate Agamemnon minifig scale

    Wow, your first MOC? It looks like a professional build. Very nice, well thought of. The rigging fits, the tops look great and the interiors are very smooth. I'm really surprised this is a first for you. Well done.

    USS Poseidon - Minifig Scale First Rate Ship of the Line

    Good god, it is finished! The rigging looks stunning. Must've been a frustrating couple of weeks.

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

    Absolutely brilliant! It's been a while since I've seen another brilliant MOC build ship. This one is stunning, with the huge resemblance of the original model. Well done on this one

    [MOC] Fantasy medieval house front

    Really wondering how it doesn't fall apart! A very impressive build, capturing a very nice fantasy feel. Straight out of Lord of the Rings or something of the sort.

    A simple matter of math

    I hope one will forgive me from bringing this topic up again, but after some time of inactivity on the forums and returning once again I find myself greeted again by old veterans that were always such huge sources of inspiration for me. I am so very delighted to see you, Sebeus, giving us this beautiful cinematic masterpiece. Not only is the build of the fourth rate (?) absolutely astonishing (good god that stern) but the photography of the whole set is art in itself. The beautiful atmosphere, the tension, the smoke.. It all works! Now of coruse I'm going to whine about the British getting beaten here because.. Well.. They are the bes... Not going down that road Well done and I'm glad so many of you are still alive, like Admiral Bejaune, which I came to know about when I spend ages on Classic-Pirates.com. Kind regards, Edward

    More ships for the fleet!

    Good god! Seeing the whole fleet together is absolutely pleasin' to the eye! Since I live relatively close to Antwerp, I would've loved to see this. Sadly, I didn't. Notify me when you do something like this again. Also lovely the tutorial frigate gets to see the light of day once again. Never thought I'd be reminded of its existence!

    Privateer/pirate ship

    Ah yes, a fine 17th century ship! Just hoist the Dutch colors and attack the English, I say. I really like how you rounded off the stern, and didn't use the big basic parts people commonly use. Looks great!
  13. Hello there! I am very fond of the Dutch shipwrights and did a big paper on the 17th century ship art. The Dutch shipwrights were truly magnificent. If you have any questions about certain parts of the ship, do ask, and I'm sure you already visited the Bataviawerf ;) Best of luck!

    HMS Ontario version 2

    Great scot! Blimey, this is amazing! I had seen something like this before, so I went on a search party and found your MOC pages profile, and I had it right. You are that awesome guy who makes these completely accurate ship-hulls out of lego. Your ships of the line are stunning. Chapeau, mate! I know this technical drawing myself, since I tried to recreate it with a 3D program, and I must congratulate you on this accuracy. I don't think there's a better model. The detail on the decks, the red under the gunports, the guns itself, as if somebody picked a few pixels and made an unsharp photograph of the ship itself. You're really good.
  15. I'm glad you're still around. I haven't been online since 2016 but I've been around since 2011 and more and more veterans don't show up anymore.

    Are you working on something new? Your ships of the line were beautiful.

      Haha, the die-hard Captain Edward. Good to hear from you.

      And thanks for the praise. New stuff... well, yes, plenty, in fact. But not in the Pirate Forum. I've found a new home among the Brethren of the Brick Seas. Still building ships - smaller ones up to frigate size so far - but some escalation is immanent :wink:

      Feel free to stop by, and have a look around - there's a lot to be discovered from a lot of amazing builders and story-tellers.

      With Phred and Sebeus there are two more veterans active, and maybe we'll get you, too :wink:

      Cheers, Captain!
