    Building a new hull frigate WIP

    Hello, I didn't plan to start a thread for this frigate but after months of work, I knew I needed creative input. So, here goes: I'm redoing the Hull ship bit by bit, here we go. I'll show you more later. This is just my design for the stern, so I'd like feedback from especially @Sebeus Ion on the custom stern, @Legostone and later on, @Captain Green Hair. She'll be a frigate of 26 guns Any feedback appreciated. Count Vroski
  2. With recent events transpiring on the brick seas, paranoia and hostile thoughts continue to plague many minds. One under the influence of this paranoia, an unnamed governor (NPC) under the command of Corrington, has ordered a personal heavy frigate to be built to patrol surrounding waters of any and all possible "hostilities". After the ship's completion, it set course for the governor, but oddly on its arrival, the governor has disappeared. The island was charted and the governor was heavily sought after, but with no luck. Perhaps his paranoia got the better of him? Or was it those pesky tribals? The facts of his disappearance may never be unraveled but one fact does remain: the Legion remains docked, waiting... (Apologies for the ship exceeding the background, I was not prepared for the sheer size of this behemoth. ) C7 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr IMG_6873 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr IMG_6871 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr Oddly, the ship was never officially certified to the fleet of Corrington. In fact, the ship's manufacturer has remained anonymous. With these peculiar facts, the crew to the Legion find themselves wondering just who their allegiance is pledged to now? IMG_6867 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr Now with the governor's disappearance, the unnamed island is bursting with new life. Pirates, scoundrels, Oleanders, Corries, Eslandolians, and merchants alike all want one thing, to take on the seas with the Legion. Captain William Marcus of the Legion and his crew have now turned to the pleasure of coin. What is to become of the crew of the Legion? Will their colors remain true and their loyalty to Corrington come back, or will they burn their colors and turn to the rebellious side of the Sea Rats? Perhaps even an Eslandolian or Oleander will purchase and reconfigure the ship to serve their empire. IMG_6796 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr Thanks for reading my story! I built this ship a while back before I got fully into Eslandola. Since I'm part of Eslandola, I have no use for this Corrington heavy frigate so I'm not licensing it as my own. If you're interested in licensing the ship to your fleet, feel free to DM me! Here are some more pictures of the ship and its fun features: IMG_6863 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr IMG_6865 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr IMG_6810 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr The flooring to the upper and lower deck can easily be removed to get access to all sections of the ship!

Play Feature by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr One of the swivel corners had a turnable gear that opens up a minifigure display underneath the "HMS Legion" pattern. IMG_6860 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr Full crew for the Legion. IMG_6879 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr The front can easily be opened for a quick display of a hat/hair rack to quickly exchange the headgear for the minifigures! Goodbye! by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr Another small ship I made alongside it, Rose Mary. The base is all on hinges so it can be folded and stored inside the stand for the legion. Thanks for viewing! I hope you enjoyed. As always, may your journeys on the brick seas be filled with wealth! Cheers. bam 2 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr More play-features/misc. pictures:
  3. My latest MOC: L'Hermione - frégate de douze française She took me about 6 months to complete. I am very proud of her and this is my biggest MOC so far. This is also only the second XVIIIth century ship I am building as I was building WW2 Royal Navy ships before. I will give mention to @kurigan for his rigging tutorial which I loved and use in this ship. Moc pics on my Flickr: https://flic.kr/s/aHsmPHBN3F Thanks a lot mates! Jean Bédard, Québec City, Canada

    [MOC] HMS Surprise

    Just browsed through the forum and could not find this anywhere. Think I just forgot to share it. Mentioned her some time ago in the General MOC-Discussion, WIP-Help, and Teaser Thread. If she is hiding somewhere in the forum, I do hope someone has the chops to remove this topic. Scale 1:40’ish L: 150 cm B: 26 cm H: 114 Bricks approx. 19300. Looking back at my earlier designs I found that my version of the HMS Surprise, just like the HMS Ontario, was somewhat wanting. This is a model of the HMS Surprise launched as the corvette Unité in 1794. In 1796, The Royal Navy conquered, refitted and renamed her. She later on chased pirates in the Caribbean for several years. The ship plays a central role in the Aubery-Maturin stories. This includes the movie from 2003 Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World. The HMS Rose, which was later, renamed HMS Surprise, plays the “role” as HMS Surprise. Neat, but somewhat confusing. Being notoriously bad at taking photos of my creations there is some Renders below, these are also in the General MOC-Discussion, WIP-Help, and Teaser Thread. …but you need to look at the LDD file to get a view of the details of the creation. Find it at MOCPAGES http://www.moc-pages.com/moc.php/452403 She has been on display at LW Copenhagen 2019. A Swedish AFOL has taken some fine Pictures from the event on this link. Hope it is ok that I link to this https://www.flickr.com/photos/86394332@N03/47062421172/in/album-72157705321073761/ There are also some more photos including WIP at my Flickr page. https://www.flickr.com/photos/131641614@N06/with/46031790204/
  5. Here we go, almost exactly 3 years after publishing about my Star Wars Medical Corps, I finally completed the capital ship that I envisioned to build. Better late than ever... Please discover below my DP20M Medical Frigate. For additional background and history, I invite you to read my original Star Wars Medical Corps topic. DP20M Medical Frigate by Veynom, on Flickr About the DP20M: The DP20M is an unarmed modified version of the famous DP20 Corellian Gunship. As often with vehicles and spacecrafts assigned to the medical units at the end of the Republic Galactic era and during the Empire, these were either 2nd-grade ships, either refurbished ships. The DP20M is no exception to the rule. The structure of the ship being sturdy and robust, it was common to find DP20 that could still travel around the galaxy but whose weaponry was damaged during combats. Some of these DP20 were then recycled into medical frigate by completely removing the weapon and extra shielding systems. The spared volume allowed for the installation of additional health support and medical equipment. DP20M Medical Frigate by Veynom, on Flickr DP20M Medical Frigate by Veynom, on Flickr DP20M Medical Frigate by Veynom, on Flickr The DP20M was designed to provide a small surgery room along with a bacta tank, a reanimation room, and a small hangar hosting a tiny speeder as well as a first-aid container. Here are the various modules: DP20M Medical Frigate by Veynom, on Flickr Playability: The cockpit can be opened and a pilot minifig easily fits inside, even with a large helmets DP20M Medical Frigate by Veynom, on Flickr DP20M Medical Frigate by Veynom, on Flickr The central section can host 2 medical beds with extra medical equipment around. DP20M Medical Frigate by Veynom, on Flickr DP20M Medical Frigate by Veynom, on Flickr DP20M Medical Frigate by Veynom, on Flickr The rear section contains 2 different modules: - the surgery room with a bacta tank DP20M Medical Frigate by Veynom, on Flickr DP20M Medical Frigate by Veynom, on Flickr DP20M Medical Frigate by Veynom, on Flickr Apparent studs allows for minifigs to be placed in several places inside the room. The bact tank can be opened to welcome a minifig. Several accessories are available to play around. - The small hangar can host a speeder and a first-aid medical container. DP20M Medical Frigate by Veynom, on Flickr DP20M Medical Frigate by Veynom, on Flickr There is also an extra stud to clip the speeder and a join ball to clip the container. Accessories can also be stored on the wall. The lateral panels open vertically and rotating bars are available to block them in open position. The manipulation is very easy and can be done blindly. The build is sturdy, easy to carry and fully swooshable. The Medical Corp is now complete: Star Wars Medical Corp by Veynom, on Flickr Star Wars Medical Corp - Play features by Veynom, on Flickr Technical details: 70 studs in length Initial idea inspired by the half cone panel from the Tantive IV set from 2009 3 years of time between the first idea and cockpit prototype and the completion of the ship. Once the technic backbone frame was drafted, the build went fast, starting from the rear until the cockpit. Lot of SNOT in many locations. The "good old piece of junk" aspect is emphasized through the extensive use of old "not so white anymore" bricks from the 70s and 80s. DP20 construction process by Veynom, on Flickr I hope you enjoyed it, comments are welcome
  6. I was never a huge fan of this ship... but once I started modeling, I couldn't stop. It's a unique ship in terms of shape, and, at only 39 studs, it's at a very manageable scale. Same scale as @Kristof's Venator.This is one that I plan to build, and I'm confident in its rigidity, despite the skeletal structure. Admittedly, the gray 3x3x2 dome top (pn 88293) is too tall for the rear armor plating, but I didn't like the blocky aesthetic of the alternatives. A 3x3x1 dome top would be ideal, or even a wedge 3x3 variant of pn 43708, but, alas, we can't have everything in life. Renders UPDATE: Here's a shot of the build next to Kristof's Venator. More images of the Munificent build can be found in the replies.

    [MOC] Nebulon-b Escort Frigate

    About 3 years ago, I made a Nebulon-b out of parts I had at my house, and really liked it. People were asking me for instructions to buy it, and I didnt have any. Now, three years later, I have finally gotten around to upgrading it and making instructions. With that being said, here is my new and improved Nebulon-b Escort Frigate:I built this with the main goal of making it movie accurate, sturdy, good for display, but most of all, CHEAP! All of the 1895 pieces will cost you about $190 to order through bricklink, which is less than many other mocs Ive seen that can be very expensive. This was very fun to build, and way better than my old model. Disclaimer: I have not built this version out of physical bricks, and am planning to buy it for myself once I gain enough money to buy the parts myself. The point is, the inside structure is almost identical to my old one, and it is sturdy. The stand will be enough to hold it up.I did not include an interior, but there is enough space in the main part under the antennas for two minifigs sitting down. It can easily be decorated if you are into interiors in your models.The ship looks good from all angels and has a little unfilled space which you can barely see. Here are the rest of the images: The moc is now For Sale at: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-41937/AWproductions/nebulon-b-escort-frigate/?inventory=1#info Here is the link to my old model that I built if anybody is interested: https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/150019-moc-nebulon-b-escort-frigate/
  9. Ahoy Eurobricks! Let me introduce this build, based on classic 6285 set - the one and only "Black Seas Barracuda" Inspiration I took 4 mid sections, and add mast. no less or more. For this setup the hull has no need to be widened to look right in my opinion. Also, I don't like much general view of the well known builders technique, which I call "minecraft style", so I tried to make as much as possible lower profile, (frigate silhouette) of the 18th-19th Century with flat decks to avoid stairs of pieces and so on. The next step I realized that can't put as much detail into it in that scale as I wanted first so I decided to make this ship look more simple, classic without crazy rigging or something. Just similar to official Lego old but gold ships sets and between realism. Build It’s build to transport as strong as possible and at the same time this ship is modular! So I can (quite) easily split hull up for the 3 parts (front, middle, back) and also remove each side to get more opportunity to play with! And yes! All known Lego original play features are on board. A place to store chest, cannonballs and cargo, lift crane, a capstan to raising and lowering an anchor with my own design, access to gun deck and firepower and captain cabin with full interior, working compass and of course working ship wheel which turns the rudder (similar to 6286 set). Also added customs sails total of nine. Absolutely love the technic (of my own? Please correct) that I used for the front. There is often a tons of slopes I saw on other ships builds. The back (under the cabin) has also some replace technic for the slopes which I never saw before. (pls correct). The middle uses simply slopes technic to get the right angle, and mount, which I designed. Seems nothing to add here Hope you enjoy! Let me know in the comments !

    my first moc ship

    Hi everyone, after having introduced myself I am here to share with you the construction of my first ship that still does not have a name. the base from which I started, as you can see from the hull, is the black pearl. the idea is to inspire me to the black pearl, but without faithfully creating the ship of the film .... in fact, my ship will be different both in form and colors. For the project, being a little expert, I started with the techniques of the captain green hair, which I thank very much for this resource. I do not pretend to create a historical ship, but a fantasy ship that is, however, realistic. The ship "should" be a cross between a small frigate and a brig. The hull includes the bow, 3 intermediate sections, while the stern will be made only with the pieces I have available. At the moment the armament provides 12 guns, but I'm considering to insert others on a further bridge ... if I advance the pieces to build it :) I share with you the first images of this work, where you can see that the sides have been created, I still have to design the stern and the bow. I await from you, experts, a positive or negative opinion of the work done up to now and possible suggestions. thank you very much, Giuseppe

    HMS Surprise MOC

    Hello fellow builders!! I just wanted to share with you my MOC of HMS Surprise (a frigate that was commissioned in 1794), and to ask you for your help and support for my project. For more (and better) pics with a description of my MOC you can go to https://ideas.lego.com/projects/9f73a563-081e-4726-9437-dff9a5293641 if you really like it, and think it'll make a cool new Lego set, I would also love to have your support for HMS Surprise so we can turn a design into a real Lego Set. Thanks!!!

    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.

    Modular Ship Project

    This took me a few months to complete, for a few reasons. I decided to post this, even though I technically haven't finished this project, but this past week I decided to post this weekend if I couldn't think of anything new to add. The genesis of this project was my modding of my Brick Bounty (nothing much, just some improvements here and there), and I wanted to create something more substantial. To be clear, this is my first ship MOC, as well as my second large MOC. I don't say this in hope for leniency (go ahead and bash me), I just want to give some context. I recognize this as a learning project; indeed, you can see some progress (albeit not much) in the pictures below. I'm already doing MSP Phase II, which incorporates a few techniques that improve the design quite a bit. This project was divided into two batches: Batch 1, which is a Supply Ship and a Armed/Converted Merchantman; and Batch 2, which is Frigate, a Prison Hulk, and a Sheer Hulk. I wanted something that gave me more than just a warship, and I think I covered my bases fairly well. In addition, this project (and to a lesser extent Phase II) is a kind of a bridge between official Lego sets (in my case, the Brick Bounty) and bigger and better MOCs (such as the beautiful specimens here on Eurobricks); as such, I wasn't too concerned with making great MOC (or even necessarily a good one), but rather a decent one that would go fine with Lego's ships, and perhaps (hopefully) wouldn't look too out of place alongside proper MOCs. Batch One: The first ship up is the 'Supply Ship', a.k.a. the Tub. This is meant to be a ship used to move troops, equipment, or victuals to wherever they're needed. It's not pretty, but it gets the job done. I started off by making sure a minifigure can stand straight up inside (5 bricks tall). I've kept this throughout this project, but I have changed to a smaller height in Phase II. I also used the 1x2x3 inverted slope for the hull sides. This is a real thing, though it's more used in modern times than in the Age of Sail (a flare, as opposed to a tumblehome). This shows the inside, and probably the main point/draw of this batch- the anchor system. You can see the channels for the anchor chains; string might be better, but I wanted to use chains like Lego does (there's a couple reasons why, mainly because chains are more readily available to me). 'Modular Ship' (Supply Version) #4 by Jonathan Wallace, on Flickr Here's a look down the inside. The two Technic connectors under the Technic plate are meant for the chains. The end of the chains are attached to the top one, and wound in between the two, similar in concept to what's on the Brick Bounty (sort of). 'Modular Ship' (Supply Version) #5 by Jonathan Wallace, on Flickr A more overall view of the ship (with Bosun Bob at the helm). I wanted the ship to have some kind of defense, so I put some some carronades on top. 'Modular Ship' (Supply Version) #1 by Jonathan Wallace, on Flickr A top down view of the deck. Besides the anchor, the only real feature is the grate/cover. 'Modular Ship' (Supply Version) #2 by Jonathan Wallace, on Flickr A view of the stern area. The bracket is meant for a nameplate or something similar (the inverted slopes around it can be removed and replaced to widen it if necessary). 'Modular Ship' (Supply Version) #3 by Jonathan Wallace, on Flickr The second part is the Armed/Converted Merchantman', a.k.a the Lumberer (I don't know if it would actually qualify for a 'HM_'). This is basically an 'upgraded' version of the Supply Ship, armed with cannons and carronades to help defend, and comfortably keep pace with, various convoys. A view of the bow; not much, but the bow mount (modified plate) gives me some options. 'Modular Ship' (Converted Merchantman) #2 by Jonathan Wallace, on Flickr Here's a view of the gunports; also a better view of the bow mount. 'Modular Ship' (Converted Merchantman) #1 by Jonathan Wallace, on Flickr I think Lego's cannons look better; it's probably because the ship's a bit chunky. 'Modular Ship' (Converted Merchantman) #3 by Jonathan Wallace, on Flickr Batch Two: The third ship (and the pinnacle of Phase I) is the Frigate. In the British system, which I base most of my information and inspiration from, it's actually not a frigate, but rather a 'Post Ship'. Many Sixth Rates were of these types, but all were commonly called frigates anyways, and so that's what I labeled this as. I found a picture early on of HMS Euryalus that I took a lot of inspiration from, if not direct translation of some design elements. This is also the only ship that's actually modular; the rest are built in a way to make it easy to make it modular, but also easier to build in the first place (I admit a bit of laziness probably crept in there, but I wanted to move on to other stuff). Here's the ship, piece by piece, form bow to stern. There's 20 pictures, so I put it here to shorten the post a bit. The fourth and fifth 'ships' aren't really ships- at least not anymore. These are what are called hulks (specifically a prison hulk and a sheer hulk). They were once warships, but once they were too old to be really useful anymore, they were converted into some kind of hulk. I've searched on here before, but I haven't found anybody who has made either one of them. I'm sure the talented shipwrights here could have a much better crack at such projects than I, but even if I just spread the idea around, that would be enough for me. The fourth ship is the Prison/Accommodation Hulk. These were used as floating prisons to keep prisoners of war, mutineers, or just overflow from the regular prisons on land. Accommodation hulks were like floating barracks; used in a similar way to the prison hulks. The fifth and final ship is the Sheer Hulk. These craft were floating cranes, usually implemented in putting masts onto new ships (or replacement masts for those ships that lost theirs in some way, shape, or form). After the Age of Sail, though still in the 19th Century, purpose-built sheer hulks were made to help increase maritime construction. Multiple capstans were used to power the crane, and the sides/railings of the ships were usually cut down near the deck. Modular Ship (Sheer Hulk) #1 by Jonathan Wallace, on Flickr I've found many photos of different sheer hulks, and all have some different kind of combination (rigging, number of crane arms/booms, etc.), but I tried to build what was sort of the average of what I saw in my reference photos. I didn't end up finishing this one, as I couldn't really make the crane fit together quite right. If anyone can think of anything, feel free to make your own (just make sure to send me a link ). Modular Ship (Sheer Hulk) #2 by Jonathan Wallace, on Flickr This has been my Modular Ship Project (Phase I). I haven't made instructions for this (mostly I don't feel it's really a MOC worthy of it, but also I'm busy/lazy), but I do plan to make them (*ahem* eventually ). Phase II has already begun; I'll still be using prefab hulls, and I plan to make a Third, Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Rate. I've already discounted a First or Second Rate, but I'm holding out on a Two Decker. Although I will work on a Three Decker a bit in my Testbed before I close Phase II. Any comments, suggestions, or critiques of any kind are welcome; I await the feedback!
  17. Hello! Maybe someone remembers that digital Invisible Hand MOC I made a year ago. I still made some digital MOCs in my free time. This time I have made a digital MOC based on the Nebulon-B escort frigate. It was a ship I always wanted to see released as an official set. Sadly, TLG have focused more on unknown Clone Wars vehicles in the last years. But knowing the inaccuracies the hypothetical official set would probably have, I decided to design my own version. I want this model looks closer to a real set than a MOC, so I have included some features for minifigures to make use of the internal space. It contains a small surgery suite, a bacta tank, the cockpit, and there was even space for a small Hoth rebel carrier. I have also made a small Millennium Falcon for size comparison, like some UCS sets. I hope you like it. Otherwise, write your discrepancies in the comments. Brickshelf folder
  18. Class 7 Frigate "Marlin" Imperial Flagship 1 - red version by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Out of the Quinnsville shipyards comes a lightly armed frigate! She features a spacious gun deck and has plenty of room for troops or cargo. (OOC) Only the first picture is done in Corrington colors. The reason for that is because I originally built it for Lego Ideas and was to lazy to render another 10 pictures showing off all the angles and features.

It was supposed to be the ultimate Imperial Flagship. It's true colors are the Red, White, and Black though! Anyway, thanks for checking it out! C&C are welcome and appreciated! Not quite sure on the class though, she is 9 hulls long which would put her as a class 9 or 10, but she only has the lower gun deck and the top deck. If @Bregir or someone else could clarify I would be most grateful!

    A simple matter of math

    The tales all tell about captains brave enough to challenge larger and more heavily armed opponents. And succesfully defeat those opponents by witty tactics and superior maneuvering ... However, those are the tales. When you face reality, reality in the shape of an English frigate facing a French 64 gun battle ship that is, all kinds of heroics are reduced and everything becomes a simple equation taking into account the relevant numbers. A bold move of the English captain but a stupid one, one full broadside of the French 64 was enough to blast him back to reality. A cooperation with Captain Greenhair.

    Cardinal's Shadow

    Another one of my long forgotten vessels finally presentable. (started ~May 2017, forgotten since 1st September 2017) Having lost the Cardinal in the Battle of the Five fleets, replacement was needed. With the funds available, it was quickly decided that another frigate, maybe a bit faster and lighter, would be needed to replace it. Farrucio Paraja quickly came up with a design; due to various delays a sistership of the Cardinal itself had been finished much faster then the new vessel. Now, half a year later, the delays have been resolved and the vessel been finished. Now that its done, it is time to head out to hunt pirates... To load more cargo, the ships boats had to be dropped off. Lots of various pieces of cargo were being loaded aboard the vessel. Quick overview over the whole vessel: Fishing issues, already noted a couple days ago, popped up once again. With most cargo loaded, it was time to load the small boats - 5 of them, if we ever need to get to any island with the whole crew it would certainly be possible. Waving goodbye:
  21. The busy Eltina shipyards has yet delivered another vessel to the colonial squadron of la Royale. Such speed is only possible with the affluence of new settlers, indeed, the recent event at a former Mardier island has forced many of the "Royalists" to flee to more hospitable lands. This extra of manpower allowed our shipyards to run 24h on 24 to satisfy the thirst of la Royale for mooaarrr ships. Meanwhile, to exploit further the labourers, the owner of the shipyards, Knight Lagaufre, has decided to launch a new frigate, a heavy one. She's built with 5 midsections, length-wise is comparable to a class 7 two-decker, but since she only has one full deck, I plan to license her as a class 6. C&C are welcome. Vive le Roi!
  22. Class 6 Heavy Frigate "Lightning" Coppered hull Ship by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr My most recent ship build is this copper hulled heavy frigate which I have dubbed the "Lightning". It's got 40 guns in total. It has 20 24-pounders on the bottom deck and 14 9-pounders on the top deck. There are 2 24-pounders and 4 9-pounders facing backward. It has a copper hull for speed and maneuverability as well as 3 square-rigged masts. Crew size would be around 15ish. It has a small cargo hold/powder mag and has a weapon storage to arm the crew in case of ship boarding.

  23. Here's something familiar from The Clone Wars to share with you - the Munificent-class star frigate. This one is seen throughout The Clone Wars series and in Revenge of the Sith so it was on my Must-MOC list for a long time. I wanted to make sure it would look somewhat suitable in scale when displayed with the Venator 8039. There's likely no hope of TLG ever doing this ship. There's not much to it but a shell of a hull with some guns around it - I was hoping to place an interior somewhere but there's barely any space. I recycled a bit of familiar parts - that sticker from the front slope pieces are from the Mandalorian speeder. The black strut in the front is there only to keep the ship upright. I had a version without the ventral fin but it looked wrong. I also got some inspiration from stark mark 5's sweet build here: Comments welcome. I can see now that I have to fix those engines. Next build.
  24. These shipyards never take a break. Over the past couple of weeks, we've been busy working on a new frigate to reply to the constant pressure applied by Mardier. Unlike most of the previous ships built here, we've decided to paint this ship in untypical colours - this ship will be the first of many in my very own fleet of warships. For the time being, it'll very likely start it's career by hunting down Marderians, but I'm hoping that eventually there will be no need for that anymore and it can return to escorting other ships. The dark hull should hopefully allow us to remain hidden if there is a need for it. Even the mizzen is equipped with a topgallant mast and sail, which should allow this ship to catch up to any ship weaker than her, and escape those who are any stronger. _____________________ For the time being, this one will be licensed as a class 5HA for myself, but I'm hoping on upgrading it to a 5th rate (I'm guessing that would mean class 7?), as it carries 36 guns (with 5th rates being 32+ guns). If anyone doesn't believe me - 22 guns on the gundeck, 2 bowchasers, 2 sternchasers, 2 guns on the forecastle, 8 guns on the Quarterdeck (you might check here, the most rear guns have been moved further back and rotated). Thanks to @Capt Wolf, @Elostirion and @gedren_y for suggesting names ;) It also has a small brother, the Tribute, a 4A.
  25. The colonial squadron of la Royale is ready to welcome a new member, a smaller one this time, designed for reconnaissance and escort missions. Here she is, the class 6 Licorne (unicorn),flying proudly the ensign of Oleander navy: Class Cost Stats Points Range Maneuver Firepower Crew Cargo Hull Sum 6 560 24 5 4 6 4 0 5 24 The above is the proposed stats repartition, with emphasis put on range and maneuvrability, as we can expect from a frigate. The origin of this ship is unclear, the official story says she is a renovated warship, without further details, but some say there was a secret meeting and there's even an amateur artist who has drawn a sketch of a ship who ressembles vaguely to our Licorne. The photos are a bit dark, hope you can see the small guns from the hole. All the parts above the gun deck have been redone. Figurehead, the brown thingy is supposed to represent an unicorn. Thanks for viewing. C&C are welcome. Vive le Roi!
