12 gun Brig
About this creation

Making port at Brickmania 2013




My latest ship, I went for something more realistic this time (the tall masts and sails).


A 12 gun trading ship, built for speed, the Interceptor from Pirates of the Caribbean inspired me here.
Although I picked some other colors.



She's built on old prefab hulls (3 midsections).



The decks are gray because I ran out of (dark) tan :/



Wait, what's Mell Gibson doing there ? :P



For those that don't know, a Brig is defined as a two-masted vessel, square rigged on both masts and the main mast (last mast) typically has a brigsail attached, also called the spanker (the trapezium-shaped sail).
(If you're thinking about a joke right now I can add that the upper deck near the stern is called the poop deck )



...Oh sorry, was it boring ?



The lifeboat.











And now some comparison pictures:


a family picture (all the ships in this picture have been made using the same building technique).


...Engaging the Phippy Christine, better watch out for that.. eh.. brig-sail :P


...Engaging the...wait...I didn't have a name for that ship either :O



Three ship sterns, let me know which one you prefer.


And last but not least, engaging Farore's Wind
This picture made me realize the sails of this ship are too big while those of Farore's Wind are too small...

I hope you like it,
I made this ship within a timespan of 2 weeks while I could have done it in a day :/
Well, it's the result that counts I guess.
See ya!

the comparaison pic is a dream! you tempt me into making a traditional ship first, but, I already have so much work... still, it s interesting to see your techniques, as now, I can taste it since I have one, I estimate my biggest problem to be the body of the ship, I really like yours, but, in space...I ll have to find a trick to make it harmonious, this ship is a beauty, although it might look less realistic, a little color in the sails would accentuate the excitment of this treasure, the poop deck? lol! how can this be boring? lol!

That is a truly nice brig. Good ship design there. The shape and colors are fine and the realistic looking white sails are nice.

One of the great things about visiting your pages is that we always learn something, your knowledge on the ship subject is amazing. By the way, I don't think grey is a bad choice, looks great here!

Quoting Subix V. Ships are great in shape and design. Rigging is missing.
True, on the first ships I simply forgot about the rigging but I'm planning to equip them with shrouds atleast.

Quoting Deus Otiosus It is fun to build witha template, but is it not more rewarding to achieve a new level of building with every MOC?
You mean like, a total new kind of ship-building ? I'm working on something like that, I'm just not in the required creative mood to make progress on that for the moment ;)

I like the realism of the design! As for which stern I prefer, I think the Merchant Brig has the best-looking rear.
