    [MOC] La Flora

    Brings back that nostalgia factor! Reminds me a bit of Captain Greenhair's tutorial on how to build a frigate.

    [MOC] Charlemagne 74 gun ship of the line

    Gosh! That's not just a ship, that's a behemoth! Very well done. Are you thinking of making sails as well? It would take some time, but I think it would definitely improve the silhouette.

    Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World Movie *Sneak Peak?*

    Oh that would be a dream come true! When I joined this forum I had always dreamt of being featured on classic-pirates.com, probably my favorite website when I was about 10 I have lost most of my photo's, I do have some but they are unedited. The closest that you could use would be this one, which you can download from flickr: Link: https://flic.kr/p/rXKqpG One thing to keep in mind is that this was made 6 years ago, and as I'm nearing 21 it does not really reflect what I would probably have made in the present. But, it seems people do really enjoy it, so I'm very glad (I shared this on a Patrick O Brian appreciation page on Facebook, and it was very well received by all the fans that were thrice my age haha) Should you have any questions, feel free to ask! - Jisk
  4. I love the little jokes here and there. It has been a while since a lego stop motion has made me laugh out loud. Stunning graphics as well! Looks very convincing and -in style- as it were. The "Unsinkable II" has to be my favourite pun, though. Oh, and "Barrk, Barrkk".

    Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World Movie *Sneak Peak?*

    Hi all, Sorry to bump into this old topic, but for those interested I uploaded the film two years ago to Youtube. I had forgotten about this thread and I am not sure if I had already shared the brickfilm here (I am very inactive on this forum, I'm sad to say; there are so many beautiful ships and creations posted here regularly!). I was cleaning up my youtube channel and thought I'd share it with you all. So here it is, for those that haven't seen it yet! I was quite inexperienced when I made this, and I am not at all happy with how it's turned out, but for nostalgic reasons I decided to publish it anyway. Enjoy it for what it is; it was my first experience working with a green screen, and I thoroughly enjoyed the process. Kind regards and I hope you get to see me here more often! - Jisk
  6. Also, should I post this in 'Bricks Flicks & Comics' forum too? Am I allowed to post the same thing twice?
  7. Hi Eurobricks and swashbucklers. I haven't posted much of my own making in recent years, simply because well.. let's just say I'm a bit lazy. Sorry! Back in 2015-2016 when I was 15 -16 years old (I know, easy to remember) I started messing around a bit with a custom built ship and No. 6721 "Imperial Flagship" (which was one of the last second hand set I bought). It was also at that time I discovered the Aubrey-Maturin novels, and began devouring them in a way you don't expect from someone my age. I also found out a movie adaption was made, containing various elements from the novels. I watched it, and again, and again, and I became a bit obsessed with the story and historical accuracy. And I was (and still am) a lego fan. So 1+1 is 2, ey? I grabbed a green robe and tried recreating a scene! Thanks to a friend who helped me with final cut pro and my mother for sewing the sails, I am very glad I can present to you a movie I should've released three years ago! Here's something I had much fun working on, with vague images, laughable special effects and the occasional video thrown in. Please enjoy. I hope I inspire someone to make a perfect version of this. Kind regards, Captain Edward, or on youtube: Jiskpirate P.S. Be sure to check out my older animations on my channel, with some being reasonably successful, although not too good. For me, my channel is one big plaza of nostalgia.

    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!
  12. 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
