Thank you very much - it was really fun to build, although I wish I had put more details in to it.

Impressive scale and detail!
Thank you so much, it means quite a lot coming from you as I am a huge fan of your Battlestar Galactica creations. :)

Great model! Great shape and proportions. We need some photos of the stern!
Thank you. Unfortunately, the ship has been dismantled, and I didn't take any more photos of it completed then the ones above, which was a big misstake from my part. However, there are more angles, details etc of it as a W.I.P, which is near completion.

Stunning Moc! I love the detail, this deserves way more recognition! Great job :D
Thank you very much, although I'm not too sure on the detail - I think I could have done more, as it's quite blend. Anyway, thanks! :)

Amazing! She has great lines.....
Thank you. This is one of the things I liked the most with her. :)

Very well built ship, I really like how the mast is done. I see you've made it into two parts- that is always a good thing when transporting these around. Anyways, great job!
Thanks! I too liked the mast (I was really inspired by the Daring class when I built her). The one regret I have is that they contain the only non-Lego piece - a rubber band to keep the sides together. I could probably have found some other way. And yes, 2.8m would just have been too long to transport... The back end held up perfectly, but the front not so much. Went well bringing her in to the event, not so much bringing her home, as she fell apart as I was to get her back into the car, which is why I never took any more pictures as I just couldn't be bothered putting her back together, which I now kinda wish I had. Anyway, thank you very much for your kind words. :)

This is truely a gem! Great work. I miss a chopepr on its back landing platform. :) 5/5
Thank you so much, it does mean extra much coming from you as I'm a huge fan of your creations as you're able to put such a great amount of detail in, relatively, small creations. I think there is one picture in the W.I.P. thread with her having a chopper on the flight deck.

Why do you only have pictures of the front???!!! More close up pictures!!! I want to see detail!!! This is awesome by the way!!!
I'm afraid that I've torn it apart, so I can't give you any more pictures. In retrospect it was stupid of me not to take any more pictures, however, these were taken the night before I took it down to the Lego event at Skaerbeak (back in 2011), and unfortunately the front broke down on the way back home and I never got around restoring it... However, there are some VIP pictures of it when it's nearly done from all sides of it, so if you'd like you can always check thoes out. =)

Amazing work - this deserves much more recognition.
Thank you. I took this MOC with me to the Lego event over at Skaerbeak, Denmark (fall 2011) where I got a lot of praise for my work, which is always fun. Sadly it has now been torn apart, however, I'm currently working on a new ship (HMS Svea, a sneak preview can be found at http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/366072) which will be more detailed and have an interior (though also built waterline up). Anyways, once more thank you for your kind words - they really do mean a lot when coming from such a skilled builder as yourself (I'm a big fan of your creations, especially your HMS Victory). =)
Quoting Matthew McCall
Call me impressed, this ships is simply gorgeous and the amount of work you must have put into this mind bloggling. Fantastic job!
Thank you for your kind words, really means alot - especially when it comes from you who I consider to be one of the greatest lego builders when it comes to military MOCs. As I worked on this MOC on and off, it indeed took some time to finish although I too am glad with how it ended up. I'm currently working on a new ship which is smaller (just over half as long) but with more details and an interior. However, process has been slow lately as I have lacked both time and motivation... But I might upload some VIP photos within a week or so, so stay tuned. And once again, thank you for the praise. =)

I almost couldn't tell it was Lego... wow great work! May I sugest making a Nimitz class Carrier or Ticonderoga class Cruiser next?
I've actually began planning my next project, which will be an Amphibious Assault Ship. However, as of now I don't have the time to spend as much time building as I would have liked (school is taking up a lot of time), so this will with most likniness be a build for the summer.
Quoting Ben Indy
Cool! Could you add some more pics?
Quoting Rhys' Pieces
It would be great to see more of the ship, but from what I can see in the photos, it's pretty darn nice (and BIG!). Fabulous work :)
This was built in the early fall of 2011, and has since then unfortunately taken some damage. However, I hope to have restored it by the end of week 8. In the mean time, if there's any area of particular interest I'll see if I can't take some photos and upload them for you. =)
