The iconic longline fishing vessel Andrea Gail, made famous in the movie The Perfect Storm. It is built at minifig scale.
About this creation
This is a minifig-scale (i.e. roughly 1:40) model of the Andrea Gail, the longline fishing vessel that was lost at sea during the Perfect Storm of 1991. If you like this project, you can support it on Cuusoo.

Below is a picture of Andrea Gail with her anchor masts deployed and the stabilizing anchors, or "birds", down in the water.


Below is a stern-angle shot of the entire boat.


Next is a close-up picture of the deck, showing some of the details, like the doors to the hold, the buoy stowage, and other equipment.


Next we have a close-up picture of the pilot house from the front. You can get a pretty good look at the navigation equipment and some of the mast structures/

Great model! The hull on this boat is very odd but appropriate for its purpose, I guess. The detailing is well done and I love the colours.

Oh wow the Andrea Gale! I've never seen a model like this before. I also never knew it was so deep. You did an excellent job, from the general boat shape right down to every last detail. I remember when I was little I watched this movie just to see the scene where this boat sinks (with my brother, who was still in pre-k)

I got into the LEGO(R) boat biz about 6 months ago -- mainly to make motorized boats built on unitary hulls. Ran across this jaw-dropping MOC in my online research while working on deck details for my marine geology research vessel (now on MOCpages). Yours still put mine to shame, but they showed me what's possible at larger scales, encouraged me to keep at it at 1:120 scale, and gave me some great ideas for my next ship. Your Andrea Gale is a tour de force, and so is the Coast Guard cutter.

Great! Very impressive. It's difficult to me to use LDD.

Quoting clayton Marchetti Wow this is incrediable! I love the image of the boat climbing the wave as a backdrop nice effect . The detailing is stunning I don't think you missed a single rivet . Beautiful
Quoting Henrik Hoexbroe You did a huge job on this one! Very nice.
Thanks, guys! Until I did my Coast Guard cutter, this was the MOC that gave me the most satisfaction.

Quoting Gabor Pauler Cool details! How close are lenght/beam/height ratios of the hull to the real one? Isn't it longer?
They are pretty close, but the hull runs just a little too deep in my model. If the diagrams I was using were correct, I should be less than a foot away from the correct hull depth. I think part of the problem may also be that the bow should start to flatten out a little earlier as you go down in depth. That is one of the thing I would try to fix if I were to do it over. That being said, many people are surprised by how deep the draught is on some ocean-going vessels -- they're often deeper than you might expect.

Quoting Alex Sonny This is the best of your mocs, but the world must see all of them. Join some groups, maybe those about LDD or ships so even more people can see your work. Magnificent.
Thanks. In this MOC, more than any of my others, I really tried to pay close attention to the details. For instance, the bumpers on the sides of the hull were really difficult to include in the design, and they don't really stand out that much, but they break up what would otherwise be a big flat wall of bricks. I have been gradually searching for groups to join. Hopefully I'll find a few more good ones in the near future.

Quoting Luke V I have this movie on DVD and this looks amazing... very good on detail!!!
Thanks. Of all of my MOCs, this ship is still the one that I feel is my best effort. I have another ship project in the very early development stages -- a larger ship done at a larger scale. I'm hoping that it comes out as well as this one did.
