  1. +++ UPDATE 27/December/2016 +++ Happy holidays eurobricks! I have some new pictures of my Venator. You can check out my flickr for more pictures. I will upload more as soon as possible. First post also edited. greetings Kommander +++ UPDATE 3/December/2016 +++ Long time no see eurobricks! Today my Venator enters the sky above the ship yards of Rothana Heavy Engineering. As the project manager I proudly present you the capital ship “ATELLES”- a Venator class star destroyer. Back in 2005 when I saw the Star Wars Epi. 3 starting sequence in the theaters – I was like “I really have to build one of these giants!” Then a few years later and already earning my own money I started the wip. The plan was building a venator bigger than the Lego ISD (10030). While processing the project there were 2 points of massive improvements. Each time I change the size and the new version was bigger than the old one. The building time on the last version of the Venator I´m showing you in this thread was only about 2 years. Now be at university the time has come to finish this ship. Over the whole 7 years I ordered about 100 times at Additional to these orders I used a lot of my own bricks in storage. I don’t know how many bricks I used for the Venator. It have to be something above 45000 pieces with a weight of 65 kg. The construction of the inner structure and the frame is basically like the #10030 IDS. A structure made out of technic bricks carrying the whole ship. This technique is easy to scaling up to big dimensions. The Venator´s of Erik Varsegi and Iomedes were always leaders in supersized star destroyers and a good orientation for my project. At one point my Venator should be one of those as well and I destroyed the old version and made a bigger one. This Venator how hitting the length of 220 cm x 117 cm x 68 cm. A bit smaller than the others. However, the thing was building this ship as accurate as possible. Some details of the origin Venator from the Movie has been changed or replaced with own ideas like the frame structure at the surface. The overall impression has to match and looks smooth. For those they want to know about construction details here we go. In the middle of the ship is a massive string - the ship´s “backbone”. Different sections like the hangar or the thrusters are connected with it. The inner structure mostly consists of technic bricks, pins and plates. Simultaneously I build the “wing”-plating because the wedge-plates with their angles restrict the shape of it. And as you know the plating is a bit bigger so it can overlap the frame. The thickness of the plating is 5 layers of plates. One slope underneath and above the string create the first important angle. Each one has left and right technic bricks as well. On those the wings can be attached. Unfortunately I secured the underneath-plating with some wires because the weight was too much and I couldn´t find any alternative to fix this problem. It is the only thing that isn’t Lego. Glue also never touched this project. In every thruster is also a solid string with technic bricks. Rings consists of 8 hinge-elements are the basement for the use of round bricks for the shape. A unique technique which also looks pretty nice. To counteract a misalignment of the long thrusters I decided to install them with an increasing angle upwards. And as expected it works pretty well. The command tower as well as other sections can be detached easy. Reason behind this is of course for the transport. Next step is to exhibit this giant on events in Germany. Maybe I manage to change and improve some things unstill the first event. Finally the last step is selling this thing dissembled in components or complete as Moc. More pictures: - Kommander +++ Original Post +++ Hello Eurobricks, my name is Philipp and i`m a member of (IdS) and of course german :) Today i`m here introducing my work in progress UCS Venator. Some of you maybe discovered my litte turrents on flickr in various groups. At the beginning of the building progress in year 2008 i started with a size around 150 cm in lenght, but by passing the years i scale up the size to the Venator im showing you now. This ship hitting a lenght of 220 cm and has a width of 120 cm. Dimensions like Erik Varszegi`s Venator. Maybe a litte bit smaller. Btw. here you can see a picture of my first Venatorbuild. Looks kinda cute, isn`t it? Most things are finished...thrusters, guns, superstructure. I really can see the finish line. But this update/post is only for an overview. That means unfortunately no closeup pictures. The next and last milestone is the underside armor. In the meantime i`m going to fill the gaps and there`re still bricks that need to be changed. Before i forget; this is my flickr account: and here the original thread on IdS: http://www.imperiumd...estroyer/page-4 - Kommander
  2. (GBW) Patrol - The Deland Republic - A nice shot Sargeant ! World Map N5, at the Large of the coast line between The Deland Republic and New Brickika. A Light Helicarrier Corvette of The Deland Republic is patrolling. : Nice shot Sargeant ! : Haha ! Thank you sir ! : You're welcome ! But it will be hard for me to beat you now ! : Don't be so modest, sir. You're a crack at this game ! : Golf on the Helipad is not a game, it's an art ! : Yes sir, you're right ! : Sir ! May I interrupt you, sir ? : Don't bother me when I golf ! I said it earlier already ! : Sir, I know, Sir. But you precisely said that I had to interrupt your party when the Helicopter would be back, and, sir, it is exactly what it's happening, our helicopter is in approach, sir. : Oh ! Ok ! Crap of this Helicopter, no way to have a good golf party in this ship... Let's go gentlemen ! Be ready to the landing pad ! Sir, Report of the patrol team, sir ! The New Brickikan tanks are still on our borders, sir, but no sign of a vessel. We don't know if Filace is sending them Naval support yet. We will need better surveying devices... : Well, it seems it will be up to F. Al'hadrin then, We will need the Drone he found on our shores... Ok ! Gentlemen ! Let's finish this mission ! We need to see if our new drone is ready ! Machines back to Port !
  3. Unnoticable ship interiors needed

    So, i have been looking around and have been playing around with my lego silent mary. But sadly unlike other ships, it had no detachable roofs or spaces. I know you can't make a lower floor in this set because y'know... giant broken floor wich is now the zombie sharks' private apartment. But why couldn't they make a captain's hut? Because i'm not good at making unnoticable changes (especially in this set) and my lack of lego building skills are truly disturbing, i haven't yet started. How did all of you tackle this major drawback? And if you somehow made a living space out of the captains hut, what are your other mods to this set? thank you for your time
  4. [GBW - Cp 03] - Deland Republic - RON Part A3 - The Wiwaxia Studica Map Grid D6. Somewhere on the internal lake of the continent. As prepared as the forces of the RoN are, there will always be surprises in combat. The goal is to have a reliable counter ready for those surprises ! Designed for quick movement in all kind of waters, including rivers and lake, the FREMM (FREgate Multi Mission) named The Wiwaxia is just such a counter to the CoAC forces. As a FREMM, this Frigate with the ability to launch cruise missiles can totally defend itself with automated 100mm gun on main deck, anti-aircraft missiles on the top roof of the cabin and with anti Submarines mesures, including drifting mines and also with a constant Navy SEAL intervention/boarding team on the breech. She is one of the newest vessels the Deland Republic has launched in order to replace the older and heavier Destroyers still active around the Common Wealth of Southern Territories. With all that equipment, the Wiwaxia, named after the south western county (Land) of The Deland Republic has become a force to be reckoned with. The Deland Republic has sent the Wiwaxia in a counter move against Filace by anticipating their move in Studica E4 and E5 and passed through all Refnor detecting systems thanks to its revolutionary Stealth system. With such a stealth system, she is able to pass through any radar detection and cannot be detected in a civil fleet. Even, during Anti submarines trainings, the crew had to attach some warning systems at the hull in order to mark her for their own subs to avoid collision ! She is now at sea around the shores of Refnor in D6 and is preparing itself for battle. Currently, there is a call from command to launch cruise missiles into multiple locations in grid E5. - Sir We have confirmation of the target in E5 ! Can we begin the firing procedure ? Asked the radio operator. - Yes ! Open the hatch ! Target coordinates ? Answered the Commandant.. - Studica E5 in sub Area A1 and A2 + C1 and C2. Targets aquisition complete. We are waiting confirmation from RON Main Comm-Link... So, since the order from the RON Comm-Link has been transmitted the vessel of nearly 70Studs long aligned itself for fire and prepared its 8 Long Range Cruise Missiles located inside the front main deck, just behind its automated gun. - Targets confirmed sir ! - So let's begin the danse ! FIRE ! SWOOOSH ! SWOOOOSH ! SWOOOOOSH !
  5. “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!
  6. Ship "Admiral's Eagle"

    Hello mates! I am fan of Lego Pirates for a long time, but I've decided recently to register here, because I've created MOC which I would like to share with you. It's a bluecoat soldiers' ship, I called it "Admiral's Eagle". I hope you like it, I have also published project on Lego Ideas ( and so far it is going well. From the most important thing, ship contains 877 parts (without 5 minifigures and their weapons), captain's cabin accessible from the side walls and from the top, prison cell with small entrance (also accessible from the top), 2 shooting cannons and 3 mini shooting guns, winch with anchor. Here are pictures (more images &download link - https://photos.googl...nZVQTdjVVJhMEZn): Brig 21A
  7. 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!
  8. Topsail Schooner "Lady Kathryn"

    After many months of planning, research, reading, studying, building, rebuilding, tearing-down, tearing out hair, and experimenting, I finally am able to present to you the Yankee topsail schooner Lady Kathryn (The Kate, for short). Brig - Two Masts - Two Square Sails on the Main 21B The Kate was built in the shipyards at Portsmouth, New Hampshire, in the 1720s, and transports cargo from New England to the Caribbean (with the occasional smuggling run to the French at Québec). She runs heavily armed to defend against pirates, and sails fast close to the wind to outrun Royal Navy revenue patrols. I chose the figurehead I did because it looked so much like the young friend of mine for whom the ship is named. The captain's cabin is not yet furnished and finished, but it's going to be a while before I can get around to that. Being thrifty Yankees, the old, ripped blanket in the bunk gets patched instead of thrown away. I tried quite a few building techniques that I learned from studying other ships on this site, so thank you to ALL of you who have posted pictures of your creations so fellers like me can learn from your talent and experience. Hope you all like it! By the way, if there are too many picture, please let me know and I'll delete some. This is my first major MOC post and I didn't know if there were a limit. The windlass is functional and raises both anchors. The Kate flies a flag associated with Colonial New England, the Pine Tree flag. Building the binnacle was a giant pain, but I like the way it turned out. She's not perfect, but I'm pretty happy with her. Building her gave me the opportunity to buy a LOT of amazing books on 18th Century sailing ships, and schooners in particular.
  9. Last weekend me, Maxim I, Legostone, TitusV and Sebeus I got together. To start off the Saturday we visited the replica of VOC ship the Batavia. To me this is the most beautiful replica ship in the world. It is build according the way they did things back in the day. It has no motor and can actually sail. Batavia visit (2) by Captain Green Hair - don't just favour, comment!, on Flickr From left to right: Me, Legostone, Sebeus I, Maxim I and TitusV. Batavia visit (3) by Captain Green Hair - don't just favour, comment!, on Flickr The bow and the beautiful Lion figurehead. Batavia visit (4) by Captain Green Hair - don't just favour, comment!, on Flickr The stern, you can clearly see they are doing maintenance. Even the scafolds are somewhat historically correct. You don't see that every day. Batavia visit (5) by Captain Green Hair - don't just favour, comment!, on Flickr Discussing how to make stuff in Lego at the bow. Batavia visit (1) by Captain Green Hair - don't just favour, comment!, on Flickr In the sail shop, we also visited the rope maker, the smith and the model shop. Batavia visit (6) by Captain Green Hair - don't just favour, comment!, on Flickr At the wharf they are also building a replica of the 7 provinces, the flagship of Michiel de Ruyter, Sadly we learned that they had to stop work due to the lack of funds and volunteers. We took the guided tour which was very educational. I thank our guide for all the information, I actually learned a few things. After the visit of the Batavia it was time to build! I hosted a little competition called Ship Build Off #1. The idea is that everybody had to have a ''finished'' ship by Sunday 21:00h. They had to make their own pictures and send them to me. So we got busy: Work by Captain Green Hair - don't just favour, comment!, on Flickr And we got some progress: Progress by Captain Green Hair - don't just favour, comment!, on Flickr Like any good contest there is a prize.

  10. [MOC] 60095 Wreck Revival

    I've seen the topic made by Lego Conductor user regarding the look of the wreck from 60095 set. I liked his idea about how the ship would look when it was on the waters. The mentioned topic could be seen here: Here is my version regarding the floating ship.

  11. The Adventure Galleon

    This is a MOC that I designed for Lego Ideas, inspired by the 2009 wave of Lego Pirates sets. The major inspirations behind this set were the new Balloon pieces that were introduced last year in 2016, as well as the fun compact ship that came in the Lego Spongebob set 3817-1, The Flying Dutchman, Circa 2012. However, I did not get past the first 100 votes that I needed to advance to the 6 month grace period to advance. This has not discouraged me from refining the idea for the set, and I plan to re-submit a newer version of the model soon, hopefully with new play features. Since I've last submitted this MOC, it has gone through several major revisions, which I am very eager to share with you in the following weeks.
  12. Anders T had a few of his ships on display at the M/S Museet for Søfart Summer of 2017. The HMS Ontario is shown below. These are some great looking vessels that are on display. Come check out his topic and other great builds in the Pirate MOCs Forum.
  13. 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
  14. Skull's Eye Cutter

    Hi, Let me share with you my custom pirate ship. It's not actually an own creation, it's just a re-design, but I tried to build in some unique solutions, so I think it's in the right topic. I've always been a LEGO pirate fan, but I had only small sets. For a few months I returned to this passion and I started to collect bigger sets from 1990-1994. I prefer pirates and islanders subtheme. I've gotten the Renegade Runner, and I customised it (I've shared it in the improvements topic), but it wasn't enough! I wanted to have a more playable ship. I didn't have so much space and money to collect big ships like BSB or SES, but I really liked the dimensions of the 6271 Imperial Flagship, so I desided to transform it into a pirateship. I've seen good solutions on this site (for ex. from Cherno) and they also inspired me. A wanted to keep the shape of the original ship, with a design of the SES. The sails I've used are from RR (which are perfectly match to the 6271), completed with the main sail from SES (that's also the same size as the 6271's). I've added five minifigs from the SES and three animals too (monkey, parrot and rat). It's not as creative as some ships here, but I'm very satisfied with it. Here's an overview: IMG_4991 másolat by Gyula Herr, on Flickr Thanks for stopped by!

  16. BOBS Brief Stories : The Brickwall to the rescue ! Since the Malto situation became an epinous problem for the Eslandolan diplomacy, it appeared to Felipe de la Manzana he should do something to help his new friends in Mehit and to support his country effort for peace. He decided to disarmed his brand new Frigate, The Parango of Sacrifice, he renamed the Brickwall after Murion Brickwall sacrifice at the battle of the Bridge of Arbol. He just left the two bow chasers with a soldier on board in defense purpose, but all the eighteen 12 pounders normally on board have been disembarked to leave the place to a full load of food and tools for the Maltians. The fast vessel took full wind and set sail quickly to the shallow waters of the Malto area. Due to the sand banks and poor port condition, Malto doesn't have the capacity of hosting such a vessel, so Felipe droped anchor at a resonable distance and hired his new Mehuãtajir friends services to unload the cargo for Malto. It is with such a total humanitarian with a neutral delivery that the peace can be preserved now as it seems the Corrington troops would never stop food and tools delivery without any armed escort ! Felipe de la Manzan is sure his friends from Corrington will finally keep reason and will allow Eslandola administrate this area as it is by law (after a war treaty, that cannot be contested !) the Eslandolan Sovereign Territory. Thank you for reading. Of course, all the description and story are IC thoughts and reactions ! Felipe de la Manzana is an Eslandolan Citizen and wants the best for his country. He doesn't want to be more involved, so, he just sent humanitarian help without unboarding from his Frigate. OOC : I don't really understand everything around all the Malto affair, and I am leaving the Gamemasters solve this. This was the opportunity to show you some builds I was working on for a veeeeery long time now, and to show you the main MOCs I will expose to the Fanabriques Event in France this Week End. Of course, every comments or criticisms are welcome !
  17. Aquarium

    I've used the shipwreck from 60095 set, 60091 set and the landscape module from 60092 set to create a LEGO based aquarium landscape. It took me around two months to create the optimal equilibrium between substratum, background, plants and fish population. Now everything is ok and the Neon Tetra group members found their night shelter under the shipwreck's cabin.

  18. [MOC] Redcoat Ship

    This Redcoat ship keeps a similar design to my recent Bluecoat MOC but is mostly a MOD of The Brick Bounty. If you have not seen the MOC of my custom Bluecoat Ship click here. I had to rebuild some parts of TBB but I left the cabin alone for the most part. I will let the pictures do the rest of the talking. I hope you like it.

  20. 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!
  21. We're finally finished😁 This is the final page for my beautiful moc of the rebel Nebulon- b Escort Frigate I've had many versions that you may have seen, and this will be it... for now now for some pictures: Original Topic (Earlier version):
  22. When I stumbled across Paint0r's Legos Ideas page for a Lucrehulk-Class Droid Control ship, I had to build it. So I did. Please support Paint0r's build if you can. The Lucrehulk was a dream addition to my display for some time, and I don't think TLG will ever sell one. So when I saw this design I knew the wait was over - except for ordering the additional 1200 pieces I needed for the build. It took a few nights to figure out how many of the 1695 pieces I had already. These photos were taken at a point where I'd color swapped enough of the ship for display purposes. I didn't follow the .LDD instructions perfectly because there were a few points where I'd gotten lost or simply didn't have the pieces. However, the approach to the build was repetitive, so I was able to 'fill in the blanks' when needed. The Pick-a-Brick order was nearly perfect - but I'd ordered 96 of a slope 45 1x2 with plate and it came in white instead of light grey (a piece that PaB doesn't have available in light grey). I was pretty disappointed until I started building it anyway and thought a dash of white was okay. I also spashed a bit of Trade Federation blue in there, too. This now means, of course, this isn't the ship from The Phantom Menace, the Vutuun Palaa. Another ship of it's class, further along in The Clone Wars. The build: it was a lot of similar wedges. Started with the core, of which I had enough grey laying about to assemble it. It does disconnect from the base model fairly easily. I do hope that if Paint0r sees this model, they aren't disappointed with some of the many cosmetic deviations I made from the original model. I'd say I'm 90% accurate to the instructions, and the final build of the design which was shared here. Much of it was limitation of my patience and budget. It's very difficult to get the arms of the hangars to align perfectly (can see this in the top view photo below). It takes some doing to squeeze the wedges together to make a smooth curve... and sometimes results in buckling and the pieces go flying... argh. As a result, these initial photos will be updated once I can get the twin hangars more symmetrical. It takes patience. But having this beast on display is worth it... even if it isn't swooshable. I really skimped out on the engine array. Too many pieces hard to find on Pick-a-Brick and it was just easier to stick the sub-engines to the side of the hull rather than build the intricate lattice that holds the three main engines and six sub-engines together. I am satisfied with the way it looks. This build will be the centerpiece of my Trade Federation army someday. Will need a little micro-scale fleet of N1 fighters too, of course to bring it down.

Most of the build was creating ten of these very tightly packed, extremely well designed wedges that comprise each of the cargo bay/arms.

  24. [MOC] Superyacht Kiss

    At the end of last year i was very honest that the best and biggest shipyard in the world Royal Feadship ask me to build a big model and a set of one of their new build yacht; My Kiss. I had only 2,5 month for both project's. One week before the deadline the two project's where ready and deliverd at the yard in Aalsmeer and the projectmanager was very pleased. This project was very difficault because i haved to buildt it only from drawings and renders, also the building style where complete new for me . End of this month this model will stand in the great new book from Dennis Glaasker and Dennis Bosman. The real Kiss is now sailing to Monaco and is nominated for best ship in there class at the Monaco Yacht show 2015(23 to26 september) and mine model is standing with proud on the real one . In this topic i will give you a glimp how i build this model . This is the real Kiss at their launching party on 14 februari 2015 at the yard Royal The Vries and mine family and JunkstyleGio where there as quest. Soooooo enough information and here is the start of the model . First start was the bow and the most difficult one. After building the bow the idea's came quickly and the progress grow's every day. This enough for today and hope you like it . Greetings Edwin and stay tuned for the rest of it .
  25. The still waters were broken by the sharp bow of a ship, and row upon row of its bristling cannons flew past. Captain Rijsk glanced down with a smile. He liked his job immensely. And he loved his flagship. Captain Rijisk worked for the Bumbel Tuna Trading Company - or pretended he did - and was the most successful fisherman in the business. Or maybe, more like the most successful Admiral in the business... Well, as I was saying, it was a fine, bright morning as the HMS Scrumble ploughed loftily through the waters, and the crew pulled out their fishing poles and prepared for another day. The fact was, though, that Captain Rijsk didn't work for the Bumbel Tuna Trading Company, and his ship wasn't out for fish. In fact, he didn't even know if such a company existed, and no one really like Bumbel Tuna anyways. But this mission, he had totally agreed with the Mardierian Secretary of War, was a stroke of genius. It was a brilliant way to get up close to the Eslandolan settlements without attracting much attention - then, when it was the least expected, his fleet of fishermen would turn the tide of the war, for good. Suddenly the lookout cried aloud, "Sail to starboard! Can't make out it's flag, though!" "Purple and white?!" exclaimed one of the make-believe fishermen. "What kind of nation would pick purple and white for their flag?" "I'm fairly sure that's Pontilla," remarked another, staring over at the tiny the ship dancing across on the waves. "No - it's Carno for sure," countered another. But in all the commotion over the tiny boat, the unfortunate crew failed to notice the more important details of the case... For, you see, some little time ago the Garveyans had developed an ingenious contraption - or rather, they had bought it from Captain Whiffo who had come up with it, and trained a whole brigade of their soldiers until they were quite expert in its use. It was know as the Eslandolan Wooden Diving Contraption: It really was spectacular. The tendency of the wood to float kept it barely underwater with the weight of a soldier attached, but the tube extending to the top let in plenty of air, while the glass window let the attackers see exactly what was going on. But to return. One second, all was peace and quite, and everyone was taken up with the tiny boat floating past. The next, all was confusion. Up out of the water they came, dripping as bad as the tuna the ship was supposedly after. Up the fishing lines and up the stern, Up the portholes and over the side, long before anyone had time or the presence of mind to fire a single one of the cannon. But the Mardierians went make-believe fishermen for nothing. They instantly grabbed up the weapons that were never far away, and did their best to stop the attackers. But all their efforts were futile, and not even the lookout escaped... Off went the victorious Garveyans with the "fishing smack," Leaving the Mardierians behind, as they commented, With a ship of much more decent size! But Captain Rijsk was not one to give up easily, not he! "It's not the end of the day yet!" he exclaimed. "Oh dear!" returned one of the crew with a gasp. "Now you've really jinxed us!" Interior: Not much of an interior to this one, just the cabin in the stern had enough space to really do much! And a few pics of the ship by itself: The Stern: Closeup: And one final shot: And I'll leave you (yes, a great deal of pics, I know!), with a shot of the attacking Garveyans. Phew! Definitely my quickest ship to date - and yes, it definitely got kind of out of hand! It was totally supposed to be about a 2A fishing smack, but something happened somewhere... Loosely based off the HMS Interceptor, but somehow my quarterdeck ended up a fair deal higher, which forced me to change up the sail plan a tad as well. I was originally hoping to build a whole underwater section with the Garveyans cutting through the ship's hull, but time was against me, so this is it for now! Enjoy!
