HMS Leviathan
A 52 gun ship of the line.
About this creation
After about a month of construction, I finally got around to finishing my new ship, HMS Leviathan. She's a fourth rate ship of the line. Not only is she armed with 50 cannons, but she also has 2 68 pdr carronades on her forecastle, very destructive weopons with much more firepower than regular cannons.

I started bulding this ship in August 2012 when I realised my previous flagship, HMS Majestic, was completely obslete compared to what I could build now. I wanted to build a realistic warship which had an unblocky shape, was built on hull sections, and armed with atleast 50 guns, and this is what i came up with. Pieces such as the gunports and the cannons were brought online. But the rest of the ship was built using pieces I already had in my lego collection, and therefore, wasn't expensive. She is now my new flagship, and is the pride of my fleet!

Great, mighty vessel,your English ships inspired me to build a small 8 gun ship, sadly i screwed up the flag, i used a 20th British flag from another creation, so i used that one instead of an 18th century flag, i screwed up my own nation's flag :P, hope i didn't offend the admiral of the Royal Navy ;P

Leviathan is certainly the correct name for her. Nice work, but seems slightly blocky, but it could just be me. Lovely detailing, excellent work!

A very solid ship design, I particularly liked the front and the rear with the double deck of windows. The 52 guns is an ambitiously sized project to be sure. On minifig scale, with the standard lego guns and the standard prefab hull parts it is tough to jam that many guns into the space. As a result the ship seems a little tall for the width and somewhat boxy because of the lack of slope to the tall sides. The colors are very well composed, however, and the sails and rigging are very well done. The name placard on the back is a nice finishing touch to add some extra detail.

Masterfully done. I especially like the 1 by 2s as ropes, it's quite effective.

Yea that is a real bargain, if you call LEGO, and buy the cannons directly from them, they cost about 3 euro each, (then they are new ofcourse) I forgot to mention, that, at the black area, where you have three gunports, in black. There i personly would havd chose yellow hatches, insted of the black ones. But its still a really great job

Quoting Morthen P Shes you best work so far. And what a Leviathan she is, i really like how you made the cabin melt in with the rest of the ship. That black line in the top, is looking rather good, i also like your interior, its very nice, and im really surprised about how many cannons you have. Last note. i would really like to see your Leviathan standing next to my Crusader. Great ship of the line, 10/5 atleast,
Thanks, glad you like it. For a while, my ship was very empty (i only had 16 cannons), but then i found a pack of 40 cannons on ebay. I entered an automatic bid of £50 (62 euros), and won the bid. It was a complete bargin, sometimes you get people selling 1 cannon for £6 (7 euros)!
