this is the third Construction Journal for my largest lego ship ever.
(I got that construction-journal business from Kelso's Invisible Hand)
30 sept. 2008
I'm making progress,
this can be considered as a rough design of how it should look like.
I had a hard time with the cabin,
I don't know yet how to do the decks,
I'm working on the forecastle now, I managed to work in the triple gun nicely.
speaking of the forecastle, the longer I look at the ship the more I'm thinking I'm building a castle, I'm using a lot of gray arches and slope bricks.
I'm not building an accurate version of the Dutchman, the Dutchman's broadside contains 26 cannonballs while my version has only 8. (broadside means the amount of cannonballs a ship can fire at the same time on one side)
It seems I forgot to take a picture of the whole thing, I will take one as soon as I can and post it as soon as I can.
Now some stern/cabine shots;
there still much to do
the Organ; it needs improvement, I know, I justed wanted to post something so I con use your tips to improve it, right ?
some shots of the guns (I have a total of 21 guns now, I remember the time when I only had one...)
The forecastle with the Triple Gun, it's not on the ship yet, I need to work some more on the Dutchman's front. The triple gun can be pushed out using axles (see the holes ?) the hatches close by using the chains.
BWEUAAARGH ! this is Davy Jones, at least the best I could think of and it wasn't even completely my Idea, it was Edvin Einarsson who suggested to use the big black squid. I really have no idea of how to do the crew, davy jones is a squidface right ?
If you have ANY complains or suggestions, write them in a comment right away, (except the davy Jones, I'm not serious you know)
now is the time...
this was my last construction journal, the next step is finishing the ship...
Wow! You even thought about the org and the front "tri-canons". That's becoming cool! The only thing I might not be a big fan of would maybe be the grey colour... Anyway, beautiful sail ship, Sebeus! And congrats on MOTD!Regards, Jerome
I think it is coming along great. A suggestion I have is that you put the cannons with the brown holders on the top level and the cannons with the red holders on the bottom. It would make it more pirate like and brown guns match the dutchman's style more than red ones. -Red Terror 7
this isnt even done and its awesome!!! i suggest you add seaweed on it. and davy jones still need alot of work! (you could just have it when will is captain) check out my pirates of the carribbean stuff, i got more!!!

Hi Sebeus Inwum, I and Fed have a MOC-Off and I would like if you, as a good builder, are one of the 3 judges, answer on my page for this MOC-Off for fun, which is called "Fed v.s. Rex - for fun".
That is Very nice and the best ship i have ever seen its imposible to make a better ship than that have you thinking about Guinnis World Records haha just kidding but its a very nice ship and and if you have to then just crash each and everyone of your ships to make this finish and this is nice and you really like that kind of dinosaur head as you always use is that your design?
Looking really good man! I do not really have many ideas for the organ, I mean you did put it in a kinda small area... ...apart from that, this thing is awesome! My only suggestion would be to maybe make the crew be the ones when Will is Captain of the Ship?
More than impressive! I can't wait to see it finished!

You are crazy, how can you build in this way, it is great.To the Crew: You could make decals for the crew figs or paint them. I have a good idea for the head of Crew members, the head of the troll from this Harry Potter set with the toilet (hope you know what set I mean). Can you comment on my Fordo and on my Fire or Force, please.
P.S.: I have one more reason to be happy in the Christmas time^^.
Oh my dear God!!! this is just SICK man!! i'm totally agree with Crimso and Apple, you are easily the best ship builder on this site, very impressive details added right here, and i just can't wait to see the final version done.. high level work my man!! >>> peace.. fofo
