HMS Nymph (WIP) Entry 2
After almost 1 hour 30 minutes of aditional work (I spend 20 minutes on changing the coulour and the orientation of the keel)
About this creation

Overview...


So I settled on making the keel BROWN!


Look at the technique. I decided to SNOT the keel too


Again...from stern with the curve


A closer look at the keel...

So, should I copper-plate it or not?

Edit: Go look at Entry 3

Thanks for the comment! Actually, I am sure that the ship was copper seathed, but it kind of looks better without it, so I have the dilemma between historic accuracy or the "it looks better without it". For everybody that's interested Entry 3 is coming today .

Hey! Thanks for the credit. I think it is my first one. Even though as you state yourself this could just as easily be to someone else, in fact the only thing I see that resembles my designs is the sideways idea and the design process itself. I even see a closer resemblance in the hull with the modern ship designs of Alex Charbonneau http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/307297 I see that you have asked about the bow design earlier, sorry for this late response. Itīs made as a horizontal version of the sideways roofing technique http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/307885 You can see it in all my LDD ships but here is a brickbuilt version http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/306795 As for the color: Copper or no copper it all depends on the time period. The HMS Nymph was built in 1778 so she would probably have been copper sheathed, if you are content in having this as a LDD model you should do this as a combination of green and some metal color (my orange solution, is a compromise based on the selection of bricks available as standard on PickaBrick and Bricklink). However if you want this to be any member of the HMS Swan class you could go for a white hull and if you want it to be any sloop of war you can go for a black , brown or even a grey (lead sheathed) hull. More on this here http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/310216 Sorry about the wall of text and self reference it looks like itīs going to be a great ship. Good choice for a moc, the Swan class sloops were beautiful.

Quoting Sebeus I Nice so far, I think you should make it wider though, the yellow line is not the gun deck right ? otherwise it should curve inwards there
Entry 3 is coming this weekend... gun deck will probably be just in preliminary phases... the main thing is that thats next...and the poop deck/stern will be almost done. And to answer your question, no, its maybe 5 bricks (exactly, its 5 plates laid on the side one on top of the other) higher... and its at least 4 studs wider...

I think that they look more realistic when the copper plating is downplayed. Anders and his orange hull isn't the most aesthetic, or realistic concept. You have a nice boat going on here, go with your gut, like you've been doing, and turn this into a masterpiece!

Thanks! I too made my mind on not copper-plating it, it will look better without it!

Quoting The Lego Animal (Jay Rhum) That's a cool hull start! I'm not sure about the proportions? Maybe too narrow? As Chris, I will suggest you making it on your own way, and with your own choices. I know by experience how hard it is to make a nice hull with fluid curves. Regards - Jay
I think the only thing I "borrowed" from Anders is the bow.Thanks for the comment! :)
