About this creation
















This creation is one that's been in the back of my mind for years now, something I haven't built because of a lack of official sails. But when I saw the Imperial Flagship for the first time at BrickCon last year, this idea immediately popped into my head, and I just had to go ahead and try to build it properly.

This ship is based off of the Sloop Providence replica, which is docked about five minutes from my house; as I would drive by it, it would just scream at me to build it. Although it is a Revolutionary War ship, I love the arctic whaling scene too much not to make it a whaling ship (going after a narwhal.) I look at this MOC as the refined and definitive Thar She Blows!, which was built in December 08'.

Having built ships in the past, I try to build each in a different way. In this case, the hull is built studs-out, with a series of hinges and string winding it up inside - it was surprisingly stable!

You can find more pictures at Brickshelf once moderated.

What an incredible build, and what an inspired series of techniques! I've never done a brick-built hull, let alone one held together with string. Beautiful.

Partly because of this posting, I find that you seem to be an expert at building historically accurate ships and I think that you would be a true source of inspiration and a valuable giver of advice to future shipbuilders, so I have taken the liberty to invite you to my new group “Ship Builders guide”.

Wonderful hull. Before building my first entry I´ve looked at it many times -decided to go in another direction. But this looks so great.

Well done, the hull design is one of the most unique I've seen! Also, that narwhal is simply brilliant, and I STILL can't figure out how you did the angle for the hull:) A very good job mate, keep bricking!
