    HMS Argonaut, 38 gun frigate, WIP

    Hello dear ship-builders, I wasn't active for a long time now. Some of you might remember me from building the "HMS Bulwark", a 74 gun third rate ship of the line. It was in March, when she got a new bow. I never really liked the old one, way too angular. Then I came across the quarter saucer base (30201) of the 1998 Stingray Stormer (6198-1). It perfectly fitted the desired shape. But now for my frigate, probably being named "HMS Argonaut". She will become a 38 gun fifth rate frigate. More pictures can be seen, following one of the flickr links. Supposed to be a sister ship to the Bulwark, I think about changing the white stripe back to yellow. What do you think? Also for similarity I will probably keep the windows on her stern. They may look to big, but I already tried smaller ones and have to say, I like the current ones better. I hope to progress faster than last time. It mostly depends on me willing to buy the needed bricks. As for the rig and last details, I already have the ideas. So far so good. I hope you all continue to have great joy reassembling bricks into sightworthy constructions! Wellesley.
  2. Greetings, shipwrights. Whether a novice, an apprentice, a master, or a veteran shipwright, following the process of others, sharing your own, and giving and receiving feedback can help everyone improve. What's the point? This is just a place for all of us liberally to post WIP's for feedbacks, tips, suggestions, and questions, without otherwise littering the BoBS forum with WIP's. You can post just one step in the process, or several over a period. It's all up to you. So I am working on a vessel/ship - what do I do? Post one or more pictures, questions, ship-plans, descriptions, etc. here, and hopefully someone will step in with some wonderful advice. At least, I expect to do so. I know NOTHING about ships - can I comment, and how do I do? Everyone with something constructive to say can comment. No need to be a scholar in historic vessels, medieval carpentry or sail making. Sometimes it might just be aesthetics, a crazy idea, a suggestion for a technique, use of a specific brick, or whatever you can think of. Just keep it nice and constructive. In return, builders posting here will pwomise not to take offense! I'd suggest tagging the builder you are commenting on. But I am not an expert - the arrogant elite will laugh at my puny attempts at shipbuilding! First of all, the arrogant elite was not invited. In fact, they have been given specific instructions to go back to their fancy little elitist coffee houses to talk about how brilliant they are. Secondly, regarding puny attempts, take a look at my first attempt at a ship just two and a half years ago... Well, you really don't have to look. Move along... Nothing to see here... The rather obvious point being, we all start somewhere, and no matter where you start, or how steep your learning curve is. The only requirement is that you want to share your process, learn from others, share your ideas, and/or improve. Soooo, is this something official? What will I gain from participating? EGS bonuses? HAH! This is merely me gone rogue - and I may hang from my toes for it! No official bonuses here. However, I'd like to see a bit more focus on the process and techniques of building here, and I think ships is an interesting place to start. This is, however, quite likely to be replaced, superseded, or added to by something official at some point in the future. Who manages this and keeps the record? Manages? Keeps records? Bwahahaha - forget it! Just post your WIP's and comments. Don't overthink it! ________________________________________________________________________ Kick off! Oooohkay, here we go: I have been working on a 4th rate, circa 50 guns on two decks. I present to you: The HMS Endeavour. Started here: Went here: And have ended here: She is supposed to be the first in a series of 4th rates designed for colonial waters. A 4th rate is a small ship of the line between 46 and 60 guns, just above frigate size. This one is (IC) specifically designed to serve as flagship for colonial squadrons, sailing in consort with frigates and sloops. Looking forward to hearing your comments! And to see your WIP's!
  3. Yargh me harties, I be here to show you me latest ship model. It is the third rate ship of the line Le Fleuron, launched in 1729. It has 64 cannons and an able crew of 333 men. This wooden model by the plans of Gerard Delacroix inspired me to build this model. Next a close-up of the stern, as you can see the gunports on portside are closed: If we take a look from the headrails, we can see she is ready to fire a full broadside on the starboard. You may also notice I used tiles to widen the hull this time. A close-up of the stern. If you look through the windows you can see the upper gundeck has a full interior and so does the cabin above it. A brids eye gives a nice view on the extensive rigging, masts and sails. The lower sails are functional and I tried to make a hastily reefed sail on the front of the bowsprit. A first look into the upper gundeck, you can see the pumps behind the main mast. Another fun fact is that there isn't a single reddish brown brick used in this model. On the other side we can see the galley behind the bell post.The cook is preparing spicy chicken wings. I made the campaign deck rounded, so that a minifig can stand at the helm whilst keeping the sides of the ship a few plates lower. And last the interior of the upper cabin, a bed and a table nothing really special. That's it mateys, I hope you enjoy it. C&C welcome, thank you for watching!

    Project GC in 1:40 and 1:100

    For a new client i started my biggest project ever till now and is a complete construction kit in 1:100 scale(70 cm) and a one of model in scale 1:40 and will be 1.75 meter long. In total i will need 300K of bricks for the project. Here is the first teaser from both project. IMG_7790 (2) by VFracingteam, on Flickr
  5. I was initially hesitant to share this model since LEGO discourages sharing ADP entries, but I had to post a video to YouTube for my submission so I may as well share it here as well. Stud.io's renders look better than any photo I could get at the moment, so this is what I have: Rocketship - ADP Submission by jwarner1718, on Flickr The initial idea for this creation was something along the lines of "what if we made, like, a missile, but it was supposed to be flown?" Obviously this has seen quite a bit of refinement but I'm glad it could all come together it time for ADP. The rocketship itself can be removed from the stand and swooshed around quite nicely, and the stand doesn't use any rubber bands or dampers to hold the model in place (the ADP palette doesn't have rubber bands). Rocketship - ADP Submission by jwarner1718, on Flickr The ADP palette also has very strict limits on minifigures, so the submission version gets a simple astronaut. My personal model has a green Classic Space minifig at the helm, and I think he suits it much better. Rocketship - ADP Submission by jwarner1718, on Flickr Finally, a video demonstrating the stand's removable function.

    HMS Endeavour/Dauntless WIP

    The HMS Endeavour/Dauntless from the official Lego Pirates Of The Caribbean game. I tried to make it look as much like the game model. Took around 40 hours to build including playing the Port Royal level over and over. Modular decks for easy disassembly. Doesn't have an interior yet. Any suggestions? And when I try to import it from stud.io it says 0 parts on my baseplate and wanted list (see pictures). Want to buy the parts via bricklink. Cant upload pictures due to size limit of 0.1MB.
  7. This was my entry for round 5 of the Middle Earth LEGO Olympics. My category was Valinor from The Silmarilion, and I chose to recreate the Kinslaying at Alqualondë. The build was loosely inspired by this image, particularly the landscaping. It took 7 days to complete, and weighs a whopping 26.2 pounds, making it my largest solo build to date! The build process proved to be very challenging at times, especially the water and mossy hillside. Initially I just was using trans clear 1x2 bricks for the water, but it was warping so much I had to add plates to connect it to the bottom layer of water, so that it would attach correctly. Below is a summary of the Kinslaying at Alqualondë for those of you who are interested. "The Kinslaying at Alqualondë was the first slaying of Elf by Elf, and was the act that banned the Ñoldor from returning to Aman, the lands of the West, for centuries. When Fëanor intended to leave Valinor, he needed ships to get to Middle-earth without great loss, but the Ñoldor possessed no ships, and Fëanor feared that any delay in their departure would cause the Ñoldor to reconsider. The Ñoldor, led by Fëanor and his sons, tried to persuade their friends, the Teleri of Alqualondë, to give him their ships. However, the Teleri would not help in any way against the will of the Valar, and in fact attempted to persuade their friends to reconsider and stay in Aman. Unwilling to take "no" for an answer, the Ñoldor started taking the ships and sailing them away. This angered the Teleri, and they threatened the Ñoldor with rocks and arrows, and they threw many of Fëanor's followers out of the ships and into the harbor. They also began to attempt to block the harbour; however, it is only slightly possible that the Teleri drew first blood. Then the Ñoldor drew swords, and the Teleri their bows, and there was a bitter fight that seemed evenly matched, if not even in favor of the Teleri, until the second Host of the Ñoldor, led by Fingon, arrived together with some of Fingolfin's people. Misunderstanding the situation, they assumed the Teleri had attacked the Ñoldor under orders of the Valar, and they joined the fight" Lots more pictures on Brickbuilt. Thanks for looking, comments and constructive criticism very welcome!

    1:200 QM2

    I’m designing a 1:200 scale model of the Queen Mary 2 with full interior (except the hotel rooms, 1300 identical rooms would get redundant). I’m using LDD to design it and hope to buy the 19,228 pieces and build it over the next 2-5 years. It will have working elevators, cargo doors, passenger doors, and all 17 decks with machinery and public spaces. Let me know what you think.
  9. Hey Eurobricks I wanna share with you my new project - a First Order Resurgent-class Star Destroyer in UCS-scale. To avoid another long time MOC in WIP Nirvana I started this time with little help from LDD. Dimensions, main frame, angles... took me about a year to set these parts. Because of the LDD file I generated instructions and and part lists for me. On the picture you can see an early version of the ship and one of the latest with much more details. For the moment only one digital render of the ship. There will be some adjustments/tweaks in the "real" version but most of it works fine for me. I already finished the main frame with the instructions... and its good! More pictures will be on flickr Greetings Kommander

    Kassiopeia Exploration Vessel

    Hey! While working on my Resurgent-class SD I created this MOC. Started as tablescrap and turned out pretty well as microscale spacecraft SO - thats the reason behind the KASSIOPEIA Exploration Vessel. It roughly took me about 10 hours. Source1 Source2 Greetings Kommander
  11. In King's Harbour, word has been going around about Olean and Eslandian expeditions to Terraversa, and many are asking if not Corrington should follow suit. Some claim to have heard a "Mr. Barlow" in a tavern somewhere bragging about being in charge of such an expedition. While this may not be true, there is some truth to a diplomatic mission underway, and in preparation, the official yacht, the Amiable is undergoing trials in the bay. More elaborately decorated than most Corlander vessels, this ketch-rigged pleasure yacht houses a large cabin aft to convey any dignitary in style and comfort. However, it is no warship and must rely on escorts and speed to avoid any enemies, as it is entirely unarmed. _________________________________________________________________________ And unarmed pleasure yacht build for an upcoming mission for Corrington. I believe she is a class 4, being slightly longer, but of a slighter build than the Ironsides. C&C welcome.
  12. Another freebuild that i originally built for the Summer Joust and only recently got around to re-photographing with Kaliphlin personnel. Not all of the Kaliphlin fleet are huge dromons or lanteen rigged ships. On the west coast of Kaliphlin in particular, Avalonian style cogs are popular among patrol ships for their hardiness and troop carrying capacity. Here a Kaliphlin patrol ship plys the waters around the island of al' Esterbroke. I have to say, i quite like this design - i hope you have enjoyed it too! C & c welcome as always.
  13. As requested by Inkpanther in my last thread on the EAS Agamemnon, here's another B5 MOC! This time it's just in LDD/LDraw, but the renders give a pretty decent idea of how it might look IRL. Front (got guns?): Side (oh yeah, don't forget the missile launch tubes as well as the guns ): Top shot (new greebles, new parts, another view of dem guns): If you're familiar with the reference material, or if you've seen the other thread, the Nova-Class Dreadnoughts are predecessors to the Omega Class Destroyers - without the rotating section but with a ridiculous quantity of guns and slightly fewer Starfuries. This beastie is for takin' names and kickin' megablocks. As a result, it wasn't much work to translate the Agamemnon into what I want to call the Schwartzkopf. The reference images I used are the Antares, but I prefer the one that was a topical reference (well, it was at the time!) to Stormin' Norman. Stats-wise, this one is 104 studs long (still legally a SHIP, right?), 30 tall and 20(ish) wide - or about 83x29x16cm. It contains 3720 parts, almost exactly 1000 less than the Agamemnon. I don't think I'll build this one in the brick (I'd have to make a UCS plaque) but just in case, I put the plaque holder on the opposite side of the stand from the Agamemnon so that they could face each other head-to-head on display at home. The model has 5 not 7 "ribs" in the midsection compared to the reference shot of the Antares but I'm fine with that - it fits my scale better so I'm taking artistic license. After placing the side-panels in the LDraw version, I can tell there could be some brick alignment issues with them around the midsection that would require a minor redesign of those, but they could probably do with a minor tweak anyway. The full Flickr album is here. As well as the renders there are a few reference pics I cribbed from the web, including a side-by-side comparison of a Nova and an Omega. Hope you enjoy it!
  14. Hello everybody! Allow me to introduce my new series of MOC. To begin - Russian frigates pr.1135 (NATO designation - "Krivak"). Built in LDD. Scale 1: 350. Frigates pr.1135 - a unique series of warships, held at the Navy of the USSR and then Russia, Ukraine and India since the early 1970's to the present. In total 49 ships were built, and the construction of a serious improvement is still ongoing. "Krivak I" ASW-frigate "Krivak III" coast guard patrol ship more photos and information
  15. This is Classic Space forces' top-secret backup command space station, LL-002 (named Cosmic Command Station Upsilon or CCSU for short) that was built in case the home planet of the Classic Space astronauts was destroyed in battle or otherwise made inhabitable to provide a base of operations for a counter-attack and to keep the CS forces from falling into chaos from the the lack of a command structure. This vessel was designed as a cross between a small space station and a a very large space dreadnought, though don't be fooled into thinking it doesn't move: CCSU (or Upsilon Base as it is known in the higher reaches of Classic Space ranks), has two very powerful ion engines to keep the ship mobile in real space. The ship also is light-speed capable and features two wings of 6 fighters each tucked in two sections of the ship near the front and rear of the vessel. The ship without the space background, but with the micro Benny's spaceship(!) still in view. The black A-frame parts are supposed to hold the ship up while it's sitting on a shelf, (as a built-in stand) and a lengthy Technic axle spine helps it keep it's rigidity. (I hope!) The rear of the ship. I was inspired to create the engine pods on the space station after seeing a older post by Flickr user Karf Oohlu. (see it here) The side view as requested on Flickr for use in the eventual SHIPtember 2018 poster. Also, all 168 of those trans-black 1 x 2 tiles are supposed to have this print, as they are solar panels to supplement the ship's power supply. The four 4 x 2 slopes are going to have this Classic Space logo print on them. The red and the black strip is exactly 100 stud's long.. my ship is just barely over that at 103 studs long. Micro Benny's spaceship(!)... not much else to say. It is not technically "in scale" with the space station, but it's close enough. NOTES: I would have put this SHIP (which stands for "Serious Huge Investment in Parts", in case you didn't know!) in with my other Classic Space stuff, but I think it's best to keep mini-figure scale and micro-scale things separate. Anyway, this is my first SHIP and should be built in real life by next SHIPtember (2019) for sure. Comments, questions, suggestions, complaints and such are always welcome.
  16. If you want to read the first part of my characters story, read the introduction post. "Log of Captain Lothario Fraunces, 28th of June, 618 Me and my brothers Jacobo and Alfie spend some days together in the city of Breshaun. Me and my brother Jacobo came to Breshaun on board of the Fluyt 'The Octopus'. Together with Alfie we enlisted again and had plans to reach the new world to the east, when some of the Octopus' crew members came to me. Crew members: "Lothario, the captain died last night. He was ill since we left Holders Rock but he did not want to tell anyone. We need a new captain and we know your skills on the seas and don't trust the old quartermaster Cedric. He is egocentric and is very stubborn. Lead us in our mutiny!" And so we went to the ship. I challenged Cedric to a duel for the captaincy. Our cutlasses almost broke with every strike. Cedric fought like a bull but his anger prohibited him to foresee my moves and I was on the winning hand, what I did not know was that Cedric companion was below deck, ready to fill me with lead through the hatch. The blast just missed my forehead and blew my hat away. The cheat came out of the hatch to finish the job, but he did not count on my brother Alfie. With one smooth move Alfie threw the cheat overboard: "Go irritate Neptune" - he said. How I already love this guy. The duel with Cedric however, continued. It was not long before I took the upper hand and with a few slashes and thrusts I had him on the ground. We put Cedric on a rowing boat back to Breshaun, The Octopus crew chose me as their new captain. We buried our old captain on an empty beach in LeBellan, said goodbye to the girls in the brothel, took in fresh supplies and headed to the new world. Jacobo (the new quartermaster) convinced the me and the crew to head to île D'Or, for glory, adventure and gold was lurking on that island. What more does one need to convince a bunch of Sea Rats? And so we went." -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I hope you guys like my ship and the story. I checked the shipwright post for building tips and took my main motivation from the replica Dutch Fluyt 'de Batavia'. I will license her as a Class 5. My apologies for the bad photo-shopping, this is not my forte. The name derives from the bow spring: C&C is welcome.
  17. __________________________________________________ EDIT: Ready MOC In Post "Update III" __________________________________________________ Hello guys! Since christmas 2017 I am working on my first LEGO ship MOC. In the first process I will create a 3D model of the ship and after that build it in real life. New albums with new pictures of updates are being addet to my album feed: https://robiniv.imgur.com/ I'll update the album as soon I make developement. You can give me advices so I can improve my work. End of project is earliest in summer 2018. (Edit: Don't know when it ends :D) _____________________________________________ Specs about the ship: Name: HMS Providence Type: Frigate Rate: 5th Cannons: round about 30 Gun deck: 11 cannons each side Quarter deck: 04 cannons each side 2 carronades Measure hull: Length: ~100cm Height: ~50cm Others: Minifig fit in decks (i hope -.-) Rudder will be operative ____________________________________________ Robin_IV
  18. This model was heavily inspired by A Plastic Infinity / Arcane Sweetie Belle's old (2012-ish) build, as seen here on Flickr. I took the basic design of the ship seen there and added newer parts and an updated color-scheme. This Unidentified Flying Object is meant to be the space ship of two of the Unikitty! CMF Alien Puppycorn figures' species. The ship without the figures. The trans yellow cones are simple forward-fixed laser weapons, but don't be deceived: they are only part of the defense grid on this ship! The rear of the ship features two engines, while the lime green 2 x 2 round tiles on the hinged tail are supposed to have this print here for a national symbol. The cockpit can seat two pilot figures and the roof is quite tall, so their unicorn horns can fit. The cockpit hinges to allow access to the inside to place the figures at the controls. The pilots of the ship, as best I could recreated in LDD. They are supposed to be two of these figures here. As usual, any comments, questions, suggestions and / or complaints are welcome. I plan on building the ship in real life after getting my final Classic Space models in order later this year / early 2019, but the alien figures are already on the way right now.
  19. Hi, folks. During last SHIPtember, Ryan Olsen created a SHIP based on Babylon 5 - the EAS Agamemnon. I stumbled across it at the time thanks to some Lego blogs, and at the end of the year decided to build one for myself. Credit for the original Lego design goes to Ryan, of course! I took his WIP pics (here) and final pics (here - awesome photography & Photoshopping!) and reverse-engineered it in LDD to understand how it all held together and what parts were required. Then I used Rebrickable to figure out what parts I needed. To build it, I used the "hide" tool in LDD - hide bricks in reverse order, then undo to play back the build as you follow along. Much more helpful than the absurd LDD-generated instructions... Here's the end result (Flickr album here) - my pics & lighting are not studio-quality, unlike Ryan's! The middle section rotates (manually) and stays put at any angle, so it's well balanced and the turntables provide enough friction to keep it stable. Stats-wise, it's about 95cm (~117 studs) long, 35cm tall and 15cm wide, using ~4700 bricks, weighing-in at just over 3.7kg (8.2lb). I made some guesses as to internal structure (e.g. the turntable connections in the rotating section) and the greebles on top & bottom are my own, but it's very close to Ryan's original design and some reference images of the original. Ryan was kind enough to share the image files he used for the stickers, so I was able to complete the model. I couldn't connect the front & rear side plating in LDD - as I learned here, the connections are just illegal as there's not enough clearance between the side plates and overhanging top & bottom plates in software - however, it obviously works in the brick. I converted the LDD to an LDraw file (using SylvainLS's updated parts mapper here) and used LDCad (which can ignore collisions) to place the plates in order to use POV-Ray to make the renders you can see in my album. I learned a lot doing that! Note that I made some tweaks in-the-brick but haven't re-done the LDraw file or any renders to reconcile the minor differences. It was a fun, frustrating at times, but very rewarding journey, and I'm really happy how it turned out. The SHIP looks awesome on display in my living room. Thanks for the inspiration, Ryan, and thanks to those on this site who helped with the digital stuff! Here's a 360 degree render: https://photos.app.goo.gl/caouE0BlHzarD6C42

  21. 14-gun merchant ship "Razorbill" The Quinnsville shipyards are hard at work during the summer months, and their most recently launched vessel is a 14-gun merchant frigate. 14-gun Frigate 4 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr She has fourteen 8 pounders on the top deck which offer plenty of protection and has quite a bit of valuable cargo space. 14-gun Frigate 3 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr She has a finely crafted stern and the crew are quite pleased with how she handles on the Brick Seas. 14-gun Frigate 2 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr ---------------------------------- It's been a little while since I posted a ship build and I've had this one completed for a little while now. She's definitely not my best work in my opinion, but I believe she is ready to be launched into the Brick Seas. As usual, C&C are welcome and appreciated and thanks for looking!
  22. Location: Mesabi Landing Type: Class 8 Ship Destroying Angel by North White, on Flickr Having been launched, the WTC's largest ship, the Destroying Angel now floated majestically in the harbour of Mesabi Landing. Destroying Angel by North White, on Flickr Agnes and the Ship's Designer walked along the deck, discussing the mighty vessel. Destroying Angel by North White, on Flickr "How is a vessel with 6 cannons worthy of the name "Destroying Angel?!?" Asked Agnes angrily. "Maybe you should have waited before naming it!" Yelled the designer. "This ship was built as a speedy, long range, maneuverable, gunboat. Not a Hard Hitting Warship." "Easy now-" Agnes was interrupted. "DON'T QUESTION MY DESIGNS EVER AGAIN!" Yelled the Designer. The tour continued in silence until they reached the conference room. Destroying Angel by North White, on Flickr "As you requested, a fully stocked bar, and a conferance room for directing WTC operations." "Excellent." replied Agnes. Destroying Angel by North White, on Flickr The Majestic Ship would soon see action against the Pirates of the Brick Seas... ...except for Sinbad thanks to the reckless actions of Ansa Mesabi... FIN So, finally finished the destroying angel, which I had working on since around November. I recently finished it up and spent the day doing rigging in sails, and I will say the following. Sails are $#@%$#@%$%$#@%#@%$#@%@#%#@%@#%@#^&*&*^(^%#@$$#@^&&(&^%#$$@#$ing difficult to do. And mine look absolutely terrible. They also took me like 6 hours to do, as well as a major chunk of my sanity. So I am not going to fix them anytime soon. Otherwise, I'm mostly happy with the rigging, and the ship as a whole. I tried to follow @Bregir's suggestions for the ship, and worked hard to give her a nice tumblehouse. I also added my own little interior for when I need a conference scene when I'm fighting pirates. C&C appreciated, though the sails are awful. I understand.
  23. “Mr. Horton,” Captain Matthew Hawes said as he crossed the gun deck of the old galleon. “How is the refit coming along?” “Slowly and expensively sir,” said Horton. “It seems more of her is rotted through than anticipated. At this rate, we’d likely been better served to have purchased a new ship outright.” “Perhaps, but this particular ship has something to offer that others cannot.” Captain Hawes said as he ran his hand along the grain of an old plank softened by the sea. Horton furrowed his brow. “What’s that sir?” Captain Hawes paused before turning to leave. “A story to tell.” I am currently building a Class 5 or 6 galleon named "The Rosa Lee" and since it is taking more time (and costing far more money) than anticipated, I figure I'd post several little narratives along the way to show off the progress I've made thus far. More stories and images coming soon!

    Black seas barracuda rebuild

    Hey guys, iv always loved the black seas barracuda, and last year decided to try remake the kit from my childhood. I got as far as bricklinking the the hull and masts before realising that to have an original would be financially unviable because I wanted it in mint condition. Thus I realised that if I was to have one, I needed to reimagine it. With the brick bounty having redbeard at the helm of his new ship, I tried to imagine how the ship would look many years later, with a newer more tenacious crew. (Note- two surviving crew members looking s little different) anyway, hope you all like, comments and criticisms appreciated. https://ibb.co/cpXiKJ https://ibb.co/j31URy https://ibb.co/gePutd https://ibb.co/f59oKJ https://ibb.co/mruAYd https://ibb.co/kJVCeJ https://ibb.co/jHwkzJ https://ibb.co/mQdFzJ https://ibb.co/d7x8KJ
  25. The latest addition to the MCTC merchant fleet: the carrack Eslandita. Here's a quick look around her. The characteristic high forecastle and bowsprit: The crewmen handling this cargo are glad to be out in the open, away from the low clearance below decks: Sailors scale the rigging of the mainmast: The carrack has a tall superstructure fore and aft: A bird's eye view: From the stern quarter: Additional images: Similar to my Hidalga, but with a black-on-brown hull and more of those shield-like teeth pieces. I also approached construction of the bow a bit differently, and went with a more decorative approach for the stern windows. All C&C welcome.
