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

I can't, you'll need to get one of the pirate forum moderators to do it, just post on the MOCs discussion thread what you want, and they will get to it, sooner or later.

Well, we have a shipwreck! I am always a little leery of "shipwrecks" because, any pile of LEGO boat parts can be called a shipwreck. But Zack's MOC "The Wreck of Hesperus" based on the poem http://www.poetry-online.org/longfellow_the_wreck_of_the_hesperus.htm is not that at all! Good work Zack!

I posted my latest pirate ship, it is a brig ;)
I'm out if inspiration for a while now...
I think I'm going too make some kind of guide, to show how I build my ships

Good. The more guides the better. I used to always look for guides and tutorials but never oould find any. I had to make my own.

As long as it's a finished ship, ie. not just a hull. So go for it!

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>.<

Glad to have you as part of the group!
If you wish to have your ships indexed on eurobricks post a request here: http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=19972&st=135
hope this helps!

Am I allowed to upload my HMS Warrior? It its based on a ship that has a steam engine, armour plating and an iron hull. The ship does have 3 masts though, with sails.

Copper bricks?
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.

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:

The all-round talented mr. Legomonster.
http://www.flickr.com/photos/legomonster/2702779983/in/photostream/

This is an interesting approach. However I don’t think it will work when you get to the bow and stern
http://jpbrix.com/ships/wooden-ship-hull-wip/

Waterline model: This is not the first one who I have seen using this technique, but one of the postings that gives the clearest view if it.
http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=54871&st=15

Straight forward building: Kind of the bricky one but then again not.
http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=18854&st=225&p=963508&#entry963508

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...

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?
