HMS Audacity

Postby Elephant Knight » Fri Feb 08, 2013 4:29 am

I present my latest masterpiece, the HMS Audacity:

HMS Audacity 003 by Elephant-Knight

Measuring 150 studs long, it isn't my longest (my USS Constitution is 10 studs longer) nor is it my tallest (Again, my USS Constitution was about 5 or 6 studs taller), but it is my best. I just keep raising the bar for myself when it comes to building ships.

Comments and critisicm are welcome!

Excellent Job E-knight! I personally love Lego ships as well and have created one of my own.
Maybe I'll post it here one day. Keep up the good work! :)

Whoa, this is great! I've seen many ships made but this is definitely one of the better ones.
I believe the sails are custom, correct? If so, what materiel did you use?
Once again, fantastic job! :D

Fantastic build. Can't knock a thing about it! Out of curiosity does anyone build really detailed medieval boats?

Wow! Love every bit of it. :)
I can hardly build a ship, but I'd like to try sometime, you've inspired me sir!

Wow! This is quite impressive. The tall masts and the rigging are really cool.

I made a very simple medieval boat recently, but I haven't really seen any super big/detailed ones. Mark of Falworth builds some boats from time to time too.

Cool boats :) I might try to fill the large medieval boat void one day!

The sails are custom, and are made from cloth that I purchased from Walmart.
