don't worry, I don't except much, the only thing I said about the size of the ship is that it can't be a micro ship,
you can still make a small ship :)

Hi all!
I would make a little pirate ship like RTN LNA, i will try to do better and different of course ;)
Otherwise if we can do a viking-dwarwishe-pirate-style, i could make a ship like this, a mix between a steamboat and a viking boat.

See you soon for my MOC and congratulations for the creations already in course.

EDIT: 01/08 , I have finished my ship. I will take pic this morning with a cool light.
I hope you like my Côtre, The famous Red Morey, La Murène Rouge.

Try looking looking up "names of ships" on Google but if that doesn't work then names like this are suitable: HMS Hope Well, HM Pearl [I'll let you use that name} or HMS Nelson. btw next I plan to build a 3 deck Man 'o' War.

Ouch, Maybe you can Pick up a Brickbeard's bounty for hull pieces, If you have any money left. You should let LEGO now about this and I'm sure they'll fix this. I can't wait 'till she's done! I wont have another ship up for quite some time, for I'm in the progress of building my port. It will be 128 studs by 48 studs, but I might add some more farmland, or a passage to another smaller town, as I picked up two 32x32 baseplates the other day. Any Ideas for a name of the port?

that would be awesome, I had the idea a long time ago but when I finally had myself some hull pieces Pirates of the Carribean came and so I tried to make black pearl-like ships,
But I'd love to see your attempt,
I suggest you concentrate on the exterior, the ship has only one mast and sail so it would be too difficult, the hard part will be the cabin details and the dragon head on the bow,
good luck, btw, I think you'll be the first on mocpages with this creation

Though activity is quite low in this group now, I still feel that I should write my pirateship idea down here,

I have been working on a new pirate ship,
it will be built on the regular old hull pieces with three mid-sections
But more important is the playability it will have,
besides opening decks and hatches, doors, and such,
it will have some mechanical constructions in it,
such as a working rudder and crane to hual treasure out of the hold.

Furthermore it will have a better shape than any of my previous ships.
I'm going away from my old techniques and am going to something similar to Napoleon's creations
http://www.mocpages.com/home.php/26108
a perfect shaped ship,
now, I'm not going to do exactly the same,
his ships look the best but I think they lack playability,
I will find a course between good-looking and being playable.

My ship won't have as much guns as some of my previous or as much decks (the Flying dutchman has three decks)
but it will actually look seaworthy and will have cool features.

The main reason I started this project was because I want to proove I can do better than Lego® 's Imperial Battleship,
that I can create a ship of the same size that simply reduces the battleship to a piece of wreckage without being overdone,
(why it would even be smaller, 3-4 midsections)

Now as usual there will be another ship as well, a counter for the pirateship crewed by imperials but it won't be half as good as the pirateship (wich will be called "La Triforce" you'll see why when I post)

Hi, I am currently building a new pirate ship called "The Kraken". It will be bigger than the dark demon and will have over twice the firepower. It will have 5 cannons on 1 side, 4 small guns and 2 swivel guns. It will also have an organ inside the cabin. I am hoping to upload it by monday next week. It will be the 2nd most heavily armed ship I have yet built.

I've got another ship that I'm going to upload. Its a 3 gunner called HMS Oasis. The reason why its only got 3 cannons is because its built on fin hull sections. 3 cannons though is impressive for its size. I built this ship because I wanted to try some new techniques out such as having a curved gundeck. Many of the features of this ship will go on my HMS Majestic. The HMS Majestic will have 2 gundecks. Not sure how many cannons it will have though. It depends on how many cannons I will have. Construction on this new ship will start in november.

i dont know how to do it,
for i will use the normal technic to make the sides of the ship but i dont know how to do so, without its gonna look borring,

for on my previously ship

(the grim reaper)

i used a really special technic,

where i did put all the studs on the sides and maked the walls slope and then i did put some details on.
but my point with this is,

any tips or ideas to do so ?
or any ideas to some nice collers for an imperial ship ? im not sure but primary white with some yellow or brown lines

The technique you used on the grim reaper is cool, there's nothing wrong in applying the technique again on an imperial ship.
the first imperial ship I made had a boring shape,
I'm trying out a new technique for my new imperial frigate,
http://www.mocpages.com/image_zoom.php?mocid=237612&id=/user_images/12746/1290357887m
you need a lot of jumper plates and tiles to do it and it's quite fragile.
I'm not sure about the playability as well, but one good thing is that the shape will be accurate

p.s. sorry for the late response

i can see what you mean sebeus,
but i wont be using the same technique,
because i dont think it would look pretty good on a imperial ship,
and the technique does so the ship dosent get pretty wide and small room for a cabin,
but i can see what you mean,
and i found alittle imspiration from an borgian ship in assassing creed brotherhood,
so i king of have an idea what to do now,
but im working on a imperial fort at the moment there is in a low mountain,

yea black seas barracuda and the new imperial flagship
10210 is the two finest and best ships
(or models)lego ever made i agree with that but they ahd been really lazy in the last past time with the models they look so incomplete ,
and on the brick beards bounty i can see that they had copied many of the details and so on from the black seas barracuda,

I quite like the Skull eye schooner. It has more masts and sails than the black seas barracuda, and it also has twice as many cannons. I managed to buy one off ebay for about £50. I'm not demolishing it though, because I think its a brilliant ship. I also own the old imperial flagship and brickbeard's bounty, which I have destroyed to build MOCs. I also brought an incomplete version of the armada flagship. I am using its hull pieces to build a custom spanish ship. I'll upload it soon.

i can see what you mean but no the skulls eye schooner haves only one more hole on the broadside for a cannon then the black seas barracuda but it haves the same ammount of guns i just think that its more beautyful then the skulls eye schooner,
it also looks more realistic
(even so then skulls eye have a roar thing there actualy can turn from side to side by using the steering wheel)
but everyone haves a taste.
i also noticed that most people are basing there ship building technic on the old lego ships,
both in the huge filling mass, and shape, and on the mastsystem,

for the brick beard bounty looks so poor and incomplete and fragtuale compared with its
big brothers

sebeus im wondering about how far you had gotten with your flying dutchman project ?
and did you fix the "to short problem" ??

Sorry for the late respond,
I'm going to have to start over and buy extra grey bricks, the width is ideal but to get a lenght fitting the width I don't have enough pieces,
I'm not satisfied with how the shape is coming along...
I still hope to get it finished in time to enter the JRCII, which means it has to be finished before the 15th of march

Yeah, I saw it too, I kind of knew it wasn't to be a great set,
It was going to be cheaper than the Queen Anne's Revenge so It couldn't really be better than the QAR.

What's worse is that I only see one end piece of the black hulls.
Besides the minifigures there's not much of interests I think.
I probably won't buy it,
instead I'll do a bricklink order and make my first SHIP
(Serious Huge Investments in Parts)
I'm doing a new version of the black pearl,
here's a little preview I'm building for the POTC contest at Classic-Pirates.com
http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?i=5082917
It will be a big project, that's for sure,
my first design (in my head) was calculated to reach a total lenght of 1.75 meter !
SO I rescaled and Now I'm getting about 1.10 meter.

(I wouldn't be able to carry a 1.75 meter ship out of my room, gotto think practically when building big mocs :P )

well i knewt it to, but i hadent seen that comming, thats probably the worst set from lego ever, you gets all sad just to looks at it, and i saw that with the single top endpiece
to, its that there makes it that bad, that set just kills the mood the other POTC gave, they have to do a redesign or make an accurate collectors edition, for us fans. i already had a SHIP i did use at my mermaids trident. but i will use the parts from the black....boat...yea that pretty much descripe the set. to a second version of my grim reaper. and 175 cm ship ? to long, its a good thing you do a 110 insted. the praticality and details are the most importend in the building of a moc.

I just saw some more close pictures of the official black pearl.
https://exoneit.de/default.asp?ex=shop:produktedetail.asp&Artikel_id=103054&kat_id=7251

I must admit, it looks nicer than it appearently did.
It's a rather small ship though and there are only 2 cannons.
Sigh, another dilemma...
why don't they just make two kinds of sets, really bad ones and really good ones XD
at this moment I'm heavely arguing with myself wether the Pearl is worth a 100 euro's :S
Permalink

I understand, even if I am sad with that, lego's idea of the Black Pearl. We great lego fans are nothing but a small part of their market, therefore being the Pearl an icon in popular culture it will probably sell a lot. Lego can't therefore build the BP as the Imperial Flagship, a great ship with 1500+ pieces, because the average buyer would found 150$ too expensive for a Lego set.

Anyway even if I perhaps bought it in my annual Lego buy (I just buy a set at Christmas) I guess for great builders as you Sebeus I it is more compensating to order individual pieces in Bricklink, specific ones and that you know you will need, because for sure the BP has lots of unnecessary pieces.

well me neither, and yes, im arguing alot with myself to. but i still think they should make a collecetors edition, with 1500-2000 parts or so, for then all the BP fans would be very pleased. but i know that, if i should get the minifigs and the hull parts, and the angel idol, i and the sails, then i would probably make a better deal by buying the whole set, but as frank said. we true fans are just a small group of there huge marked.....

Well, the easiest sollution would be to use the regular rigging parts but the nicest results are achieved with costum rigging.
This is a great tutorial but I'm warning you, this technique is very time consuming and requires a lot of patience.

I think I will try the custom rigging since along with me lacking any ship sets I also lack any rigging pieces. After looking over some ship mocs I think I can make the masts pretty well..... hopefully this ship won't turn out too bad.

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.

I had no idea that the ships started to have cooper hulls, and that was quite common according to what I read. The historical part is really interesting, I made a search and found that copper hulls allow increased speed and also allow ships to stay for much longer at the sea. This happened when England was at war with her 3 greatest rivals, Netherlands, France and Spain, and they coppered all their ships' hulls. Copper was cheap at that time because there was lots of it in Wales but still copper hulls were much more expensive than wood ones. :P this is what I found sorry for all the text

Now to your question, as far as I know Lego doesn't have a copper colour, you can always use orange or dark orange, but if I were you I would built the hull in standard colours like brown, black or white. Even if you can find the necessary parts in orange (which I doubt) I assure you it will be an astronomic price, at least judging for your amazing and very detailed huge hulls...

Thank you for the quick response.
(and the history lesson :P)
A possibility on bricklink is the chromegold slopes at 1-2 dollar pr. Brick. (You´re right that´s completely insane)
It would be a reasonable approach to build hulls in white, as this is the colour of the hulls immediately before the coppering practice began.
As to the possibility of finding orange bricks: My hulls are designed with bricks that come in orange as a standard colour, the price is about the same as with white slopes.

coppering hulls... :P totally out of place today but I guess it made sense back then.
it is quite a noble metal kind so it wouldn't rust quickly...
Anyway, I suggest you go for a white hull, achieving a copper color is expensive and I'm not sure if it would look even good.
I like your ships as they are colored now :)

Thanks, the idea of a LEGO ship with an actual coppered hull might be a bit farfetched. It seems like the closest thing to a coppered hull is the orange I already chose for the LDD models. I´ll might settle for something older with a white hull. -I was thinking at some point to go ahead in a project with the ships from, ”Architectura Navalis Mercatoria”(the ships are very similar to the ones I´ve already built but from before 1775), this could be sooner rather than later.

That sounds frustrating, I always hate it when you have uneven ratio of pieces and you need an even ratio for it to work. You're lucky to have enough hulls for 12 ships. I probably just going to get a brown bow and stern and maybe a few extra middle hull pieces, thought I already have a few from the viking ship. Best of luck with the WIP's!

I know what you mean, sometimes to improve a ship you got to demolish part of it in order to rebuild it better, I'm always afraid that it might not get as good as its original state.
Lately I have been transferring my frigate (din's fire) over to another hull and while doing that I'm incorporating a working rudder, new working capstan and battery box with lights, the whole operation makes me very nervous :S

well i understand why that makes you nervous..... i would had been frightend to death 2 times.....but i feel just like you do, but i just realized, i have to do it, well its the creation im most proud of, but, if i can make it even better, then i will do that, and if i fail, i just need to remember how i did it the first time.
goodluck to the both of us

Can't wait to see your new grim Reaper, exhibits are nice, last year I showed my ships (the black pearl being the biggest)
there was this father and two kids walking by, he said, "wow, what a big boat... another boat ??? ...three boats ... 4 boats ????
4 boats..."
it was very funny :P
This year I will exhibit my new Flying Dutchman, along with some other ships, can't wait to see the reactions, it's massive, over a meter long.

i can wait neither at your FD, but you dont have to wait for so much longer for my Grim Reaper, i will post it before the week is over. and to return to the sibject exhibits, yea its very nice, in our pirate layout there was this huge fort, at around 7x5 ´baseplates, and my ships did lie right behind it, but anyhow people who went over to us to see that fort, but when the kids noticed my ships they yelled: see the pirate ships daddy, and then they did drag there parents away from the firt and over to my ships, i really got a kick out of it, hehe,

its comming along just fine, (sorry i havent been near a pc the last couple of days,
ive been hunting a new camera, because my cellphone, well, it isnt as good as a real camera, but however i know a guy who has a good camera, but i havent been able to borrow it the last past week, but i will be able to do it today, (hopely) but im gonna post a teaser, of my cabin on my flicr account, then you can just imagine what ive done to the rest of the ship, hehe, and besides i can just aswell mention it, i broke down my mermaids trident looooong time ago, but a week before i went to exibition, i wanted to create a new one that could battle the grim reaper, so i did, and it looks rather good when you think upon i spend around 30 hours upon it and i spend a total of around 300 at the grim reaper, (first and second time combined) and Sebeus, what camera do you use?

If this isn't already a rule, people should have to ask an admin before starting conversation threads. The majority of us are mature enough to know what is a good idea for a thread and what isn't, but this way we don't get topics that are only helpful to one person. For example: "c@n u guys plz help me!" Stuff like that just makes the group look sloppy and wastes space.

I'm entering the JRC II as well, that category is difficult, I need a small pirate ship but it still has to be a threat to the trading ship so it can't be too small
(this was my prototype btw http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/307880)
Now I'm making the pirateship on a costum hull, the trading ship is prefab hulled with 4 midsections.

A big trading ship isn't easy either, it should have less cannons than the pirateship but then I have all this empty space :P

Nothing extraordinary so far, just two ships but I must say, my trading ship is coming along nicely, I hope I get it finished in time.
Pretty cool that you can actually enter your grim reaper,
but considering its size it must be difficult making a larger trading ship.
Man I wish I could just use my tiny black pearl (http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=491840) that would have been an original entry XD

Looks like they don't accept LDD creations. I understand why they do that, but it is a real shame. I just can't use my real bricks. I tried to pull them out on Easter while both my girls were asleep. I managed to pull out the whole collection, look at it with satisfaction, and then they both woke up... Oh well, perhaps another time. Thanks for the info.

We would have to get both our ships into one picture somehow, might be do-able with photoshop but I'm not good at that, it's probably against the rules anyway.
besides, what if we win ? we would have to share the price, what part do you want :P

My BP is coming along very nicely! The hull is a lot easier than I thought. I will definitely be needing some BL orders because I need some slopes for the hull. The shape was actually rather easy to make. Which is nice because it will probably be one of the hardest parts of it.

My first siggy looked really boring, I wanted something unique, a siggu you couldn't mistake for somebody else's.
Pretty much like yours, except, you have a look-alike :P
http://www.flickr.com/photos/45244184@N04/ (but I see now that he updated his siggy)
the main reason for the samurai helmet with dragon wings was that I never saw anyone else make that combination before I posted it.
that helmet with wings is the most important part of my sig, if you have that the rest of the fig doesn't matter that much.
I made an alternative siggy a while ago, for killing and such :P
