Le Vesta
I've made a French frigate (with 20 guns)called'Le Vesta'. I've been building on it for about 1,5 year. She has been displayed at Legoworld, Zwolle last year and I think she will be there again in 2011. The other ship you see on the picture is the Achille, made by Eurobricks member Perfectionist.
About this creation

She is finally finished! (after 1,5 years of building) This is how she looks:

A new overall-view with most of the sails.

Here you can see that it's possible to take the sails in. I can do this with every sail.

Here you can see my officers, the captain (and also my sigfig, called 'Admiral Croissant') and some midshipmen.

This is a view from the stern (how it looked before).

Thanks for viewing, comments and critics are very welcome.

Would you consider adding your sail tutorial from classic-pirates to ship builders guide. I think its the best one I have seen yet. I will definetly use these sails on HDMS Lougen!

Partly because of this posting, I find that you seem to be an expert at building historically accurate ships and I think that you would be a true source of inspiration and a valuable giver of advice to future shipbuilders, so I have taken the liberty to invite you to my new group “Ship Builders guide”.

Thanks for all your comments. Wonderful ship. I really like your take on the rigging and sails. It“s fascinating how you make the sails look so realistic. When I get to building my ships for real, I might need to consult you. I“m looking forward to see some more models from you in the future.

YOU have some true talent! I've always wanted to build a frigate such as this, the imperial flagship I wouldn't classify as a SCHOONER! Thanks for posting this AMAZIG price of art, maybe send instructions so we can all enjoy your masterpiece!

It's a beauty Admiral! And welcome to MOCpages! I really like how she turned out, the hard work paid off. I'm looking forward to the result of the rigging! Good luck!
