Kyle84 has recently sailed into the LEGO Pirates Forum and he’s wasted no time impressing us with his digital ship builds! The “HMS Surprise” is a sleek Imperial Guard vessel armed to the hatches with 20 ferocious cannons and a sizeable, but capable crew.
Move aside, Soldiers and Imperial Armada or you’ll receive a nasty surprise!
This is my second upload.

I published the first version on BrickLink at last February 11th .
And I got some good feedback about it.
Many modificatied since the first version.
This is almost the final.
Now i will try build actually and make the instructions.

On the bridge you’ll find the high ranking officers ensuring the smooth operations of this outfit
The sextant is so named because its arc encompasses one sixth of a circle (60°) – and not because it has anything to do with sex
This is the chief bug catcher – watch the 2003 film, “Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World” and you’ll understand this reference
Meanwhile in the Captain’s Cabin… the Captain is enjoying the concierge service – Governor Broadside would be jealous!
This is where naughty cabin boys are sent when they misbehave!
About the Builder…
Kyle Park has only recently parked moored his fleet in the Pirates MOC Sub Forum but his Flickr account is rapidly expanding with new imagery of digital ship builds – so do cruise by there!
And once you’re done, discuss this fine vessel in the LEGO Pirates Forum with Kyle84 and the Classic Pirates!
