La Comete Sails again!

Sunday, April 5th, 2020

Many of you may know this ship as it had traveled to many shows with it's original creator Legostone since it's first appearances in 2018.  Back in September of 2019 Legostone had posted that the rigging was in poor shape and that the ship had suffered some structural fatigue due to many miles logged in the back of a car.  He had asked for advice on what to do with the ship.

It had seemed that the ships fate was her service had come to an end and she would be dismantled.  However a new option arose!  Another Pilar of the ship building community, Sebeus I talked Legostone into selling him the ship and he took on the daunting restorations.  By the end of March of 2020 she made her reappearance.  However she now sails under the black with some great renovations.  This LINK will take you to the updated pictures, scroll to the top to see the original photos.

Cloudship 1

Sunday, September 22nd, 2019 https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/173405-cloudship-1

Eurobricks Terry Akuna shared his creation Cloudship 1.  While not a traditional Pirate ship; this is a fully functional and remote controlled Lego airship that can actually fly.

It's believed to be the first and only one in the world.  I was lucky enough to watch as he preped and flew this at BrickWorld Chicago 2018.  The video in his post simply does not do it justice.  The flight is so smooth and if he wouldn't have divulged the fact that the Servos and Props were from a drone then you could have easily belived they were in fact lego as he implemented them seamlessly.

Enough chit chat ... Go see it for yourself!

Austrian Grenadier charge at Aspern

Tuesday, August 6th, 2019

Eurobricks member Woody64 has shared his 1790 - 1815 Vignettes in the Pirate Forum.

This particular one caught my eye as I love when paintings of history are recreated in Lego!  This scene from the battle of Aspern-Essling was recreated with the help of some custom headgear.

In May of 1809 Napoleon attempted to cross the Danube near Vienna but was driven back by the Austrians under Archduke Charles's command.  This battle was significant as Napoleon had not been defeated in over a decade.  Unfortunately for the Archduke Napoleon was able to withdraw the majority of forces so it was never declared a decicive victory.

So enough of the history lesson go check out the rest of his vignettes post haste!

14 Gun Brig: Pinnacle

Mr. Townsend has shared his ship building expertise again with us, this time in the form of a 14 gun brig called the Pinnacle. He has displayed some amazing custom sails that look very authentic, and even used 5 different kinds of string to simulate the rigging. The blue flag is a great touch as well. Bow to stern this sailing ship is a masterpiece.
