Hello fellow builders, I present you the Flying Dutchman, the infamous ghost ship from the Pirates of the Caribbean film series, in LEGO! The idea came to me a year ago, while I was sitting at my desk when I cast me eyes upon the 3 official LEGO POTC ships on the top of my shelf: The Black Pearl, The Queen Anne's Revenge, and The Silent Mary. For years I had been waiting for LEGO to release a Flying Dutchman, but to no avail it never came out. Determined to build the ship myself, I embarked on an exciting, challenging but rewarding journey to produce a MOC which would take up its rightful place among my fleet and make it complete. More information can be found here at LEGO IDEAS. If you like it, feel free to support! Here are some renders below (more can be found on my Flickr page): LEGO Flying Dutchman - 1 by Scarvia LEGO Flying Dutchman - 2 by Scarvia LEGO Flying Dutchman - 4 by Scarvia And with the crew: LEGO Flying Dutchman - 6 by Scarvia The infamous triple-barrelled chasers in the bow: Triple-barrelled chasers (Out) by Scarvia Triple-barrelled chasers (In) by Scarvia Thank you for your time.
It is finally completed, took me long enough . Let's start with some history; Now, back to the present; I had some help from my sister to spice up those first 4 pictures . The prow underwent a lot of changes since the last version, it took me a while to get to something I was satisfied with. It is one of the more difficult parts of the famous ghost ship after all. A small but very important addition is the original Davy Jones minifigure, to serve as captain. For your information, that one was quite expensive . There were a lot of changes on the stern and poop deck. It began with some structural changes (because it kept breaking apart) but later also characteristic details were added, such as Dead watching over the ship and the flippers on the galleries. Apart from the minifigures there is only one black part on the ship, which is the compass on the steering wheel. Excluding the colour black from the colour scheme was essential. The one aspect that the new version did not improve on is interior access. While the previous version had a complete interior I sacrificed main gun deck for structural reinforcements. The port side of the ship was also finished (previous version was open on one side). But I did keep the captain quarters, with some changes though. The cabin can be accessed by taking out the poop deck. On the previous ship the stern was usually a disaster whenever I moved this ship. It's a lot more stable now. Yep, I'm quite satisfied with this one. Time to move on to a new project . Video
scheuerbeutel posted a topic in Pirate MOCsThis is my version of the "Capstan Hammer" of the Flying Dutchman (cf. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9gp73EZdObM) if you want to see the mechanism in action visit https://imgur.com/a/g2uad because I cannot upload more than 0,1 MB :/ The most challenging part was to construct the inner part in such a way that it rotates along with it, but can also be lifted and falls down abruptly. In addition, the mechanism should be kept so small that it can be installed in a normally dimensioned ship. Although the rotary movement of the hammer during lifting is not exactly the same speed as that of the capstan, I am still quite satisfied with the result.
