HELLOEARTHLING has shared his MOC of the Armada Flagship, outfitted to sleep a crew of double the original! It’s a tight squeeze inside for the 6 crewmen, but it holds a very diverse and interesting group of seamen. There is some clever decoration inside the ship, and a truly unique figurehead, I can’t say that I’ve ever seen one like it before!
Overview of the hold, with the cooking equipment, table, and the laboratory at the end.
A strange bird head in a jar, and a taxidermied dog of some variety.
The stern cabin, where the captain and wife sleep.
Left to right: Captain, his wife, zoologist, biologist, and two sailors. In the real HMS Challenger, there were over 200 crew and three scientists. (!)
More detail pics are available on Flickr. Also a bit more history on the HMS Challenger, which I think was super cool.
I should make a proper warship next!
