With a name like Boeing 787 8 Dreamliner you’d probably assume the builder was heavily focused on building aircraft MOCs. Well, what a daft assumption that is!
Mister Dreamliner makes his debut in Pirate MOC Forum with a frigate he’s dubbed “Phama“ due it’s a highly notorious reputation as an opium smuggling vessel!
It clocks in at a whopping 6,836 pieces and measures 100cm (3’3″) in length – and they tell the Imperial Guards its a cruise ship!
“Nuestra Senora de las Phama”
That loosely translates to “Our Lady of Fame” in case you were wondering… oh, you weren’t. Never mind!

About the Builder…
Boeing 787 8 Dreamliner (Frank Mäurer) is another one master builder with a digital shipyard right inside his computer.
He was an impressive fleet of tall ships which is continuously expanding and berthed through his Flickr account. If you navigate to his Instagram, you’ll discover things haven’t always been pixel-perfect, for once upon a time, he built MOCs with a modern military flavour using physical LEGO bricks!
Now, when you’re done admiring this frigate, plot a course to the LEGO Pirates Forum and discuss Fregatte Phama with Frank and the Classic Pirates!
