1:50 scale (minifg) reproduction of the famous clipper Cutty Sark from 1869, Britain.
About this creation
Lego model is 163cm long and 97cm tall.
This MOC was specifically prepared for the 4th spanish LEGO-fan meeting in Terrassa (Barcelona); Hispabrick 2010.
This was the first time I participated in a public Lego display. I hope it wont be the last! ;-)



















The LEGO building techniques used here are pretty much the same as used on the Calypso ocean explorer. Rigging is kept real simple, just enough to create the sensation of a true classic tall ship.

Credit: The idea of using Technic pins where the ratlines are anchored, is borrowed from Captain Green Hair.

The history of the famous Cutty Sark is pretty interessting (Google it!). Alas it burned in dry dock in Greenwich in 2007.
Full restaurantion is currently under way.

An awesome ship; truly stunning! The details (especially the deck area) really makes this ship come to life! I like the fact that you chose to build it in the scale that you did. An overall fabulous MOC. Excellent! 5/5! :)

I'm glad you felt like that, I think I will proceed after your comment. Again, your ship is the finest around, and I have you to thank for the final kick off of inspiration to add the Beagle to the ranks. I should have it setting sail just after the new year. Thanks for the response Henrick, Chris

I'm thinking of building my LDD of the Beagle, it will cost a pretty penny, so i am really thinking about whether it's worth it or not. Was building this worth it in terms of bricks and space and displaying the finished product? Chris

In short; Yes, absolutly! In more detail; As I never keep any of my MOCs the cost of bricks is practically NIL, as most of them are put to good use later. Regarding the transport; I would not want to repeat transporting and re-building a full-rigged ship; the ropes and cords are a nightmare. Good planning and packing is necessary. It was certainly worth it on a personal level as the many visitors to exposition expressed their admiration for the MOC.

Quoting Anders T This is great! The upper part of the hull though... is that just bended?
Tak! Yes, the upper part is "just" bended, but I assure you that no bricks are harmed in hte prcoess. The bend ONLY uses the small tolerance-gap there is between each brick. When you use enough small bricks together, the tolerance allows for a whole curve to be formed.

This is great! You left me a comment on my model of Hms Ontario. And here I see ecxactly what you mean. The upper part of the hull though... is that just bended? The details are stunning and. -those angles again.

  February 11, 2011
Astounding work, Hendrick. The smoothness of the hull's lines is amazing as is the overall accuracy. This is good enough to be on display in Greenwich on board the ship itself. You are a true master of the brick!

This is absolutely remarkable Hendrik. But I have a few questions. How did you make, or where did you acquire your sails? Is there an interior? And, if they exist, can you please send me the instructions for this wonder to Logicomix.Incryptory@gmail.com? I'll give you credit of course.

What a spectacular creation! It is so full of amazing details, the deck, the masts, the entire hull construction, the railing towards the bow, the dozens of ropes you fixed... Fantastic stuff! P.S.: How much does it weigh, BTW? And you´re right: Size matters:) Best regards, Steffen

Quoting Pascal Imero I think this is the best MOC I have ever seen! How did you bend the front part with the tiled plates?
Thanks! Using the very small gap there is between each brick; When doing it for several small bricks in a row, the angle grows enough to be usable! (See the "how-to" of the Calypso MOC!)

I haven't had the time to post a comment on MOCpages for months but this was simply too good to miss. Clean lines, just enough detail and a great hull. I have the Royal Clipper on my building "wish list". If I do ever get around to it, your model will be my major source of inspiration.
