MOC : The Story of L’Archiveur by IngmarNovember 8, 2009 posted by Skipper24
L'Archiveur a mighty 'Man o' War'. Once when navigating down the treacherous Eldorado River she was attacked and taken over by the French, could it pirates? Sporting a full 40 guns spread across the ships 3 decks. Ingmar's attention to deatil has excelled for him on this ship. It features a consistent recognisable colour scheme to enjoy as well as plenty of rigging that swamp the masts and sails for realistic effect. At it's bow a majestic figure head spouts from a trail of golden guilding at her stern a ornately decorated aft section can be found.
No matter how awesome this ship maybe the inspiration came from somewhere. In this instance it was out very own Classic-Pirates.com. Member Captain Green Hair also know as CGH recently created a wonderful tutorial showcasing the process of building a master class ship. It was a derivation of this tutorial that inspired Ingmar to create this marvellous vessel.
