I make only galleons actually, I have a new one ready to be posted btw
Actually some of your ships aren't galleons, the hulls might be, but the sail plan is not.
Take Espada (depending on how you rigged the mizzen mast, it's a Polacca or a Hermaphrodite Brigantine). The Follower and the Demon are both Brigs. Look at this page to help you: http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=23991 Enjoy kurt Permalink
Hey, Finding that you have done your best on that MOC you've made could be better? Then jion the Building Advice Group. There you can find the most helpful advice on how to make the best, Better! Permalink
Hey there, I'm fairly new to Moc pages, glad to be a part of this group! I have a slight request though, can my pair of schooners be added to the index of ship mocs on euro bricks? I'm under Fires-storm, and their names are the U.S.S Charger, and U.S.S Dauntless. I'll be adding them here soon as I dig up my SD converter>.< Permalink

So far I have been posting LDD models. In the coming winter I intent to make some of them for real.
Especially the ships from the 1790s-1810s is a fascinating item to make. However these ships have a coppered hull , so does anyone know where( if possible)I could get my hand on some bricks in “copper”.
If It´s not possible I´ll just make them with an orange hull. Permalink

hmmm, I've noticed that I....
Instead of advice I will give some links to some mocs that could be inspiring.
These are some of the ones I have stumbled upon. I have tried to keep within the confines of the age of sail. (Not the group, the period). I have tried to keep them as varied as possible. Note that this is not a complete list! There is a lot of mocs equally well crafted and I have probably just even forgotten some. So fellow moccer, don´t be offended, if you are not mentioned here.
First some of the ones outside mocpages, these are with a link and sometimes a reason rather than a name:
Then some of the ones on mocpages, these are just mentioned by name and sometimes moc:
The ships of mr. Henrik Hoexbroe
Ships and boats by Mads Møller
Several ships by Sir Nadroj
The Shadow V by Sebeus I
The Golden Hinde by James Pegrum
Chinese Junk "Duk Ling" by ArzLan
Even if there is a lot that speaks against the lego hull there is some use of it if you keep inside the galleon size limits, Like the works of Luke Hutchinson
But then there is also Bonaparte Napoleon, Nykle Dijkstra and others who don´t keep within this limit but still seem to make their ships look great.
Hope this gives at least an idea of the vast number of customhull techniques. There is a lot to see yet... Permalink

ok, so I got a hull design but I am nowhere near finishing fore or stern, I know WIP's are usually not allowed, but I'd appeciate being able to post one so that people could help me with the bow and stern sections, could I possibly do this?
An exception will be made for you to get comments, OK?
