About this creation

Davy Jones' ghost ship as seen in Pirates of the caribbean Dead Man's Chest and At Worlds End.

Support this creation at Lego Idea's (formerly Cuusoo)

Apart from the rigging this is 100% LEGO¨



It took me around a year to design, plan and construct this ship,



The Flying Dutchman engaging into battle with the Spanish Galleon
( 21 april 2012 : BrickMania Wetteren )



The Flying Dutchman in the middle of a grand Pirate Layout
( 5 May 2013 : BrickMania Wetteren )


The Flying Dutchman is a galleon with two gun decks accommodating 38 cannons (20+18). The weather deck has various spots suitable for additional smaller guns. In the movie (Dead Man's Chest and At World's End) the Flying Dutchman has a total of 52 cannons and on top of that the famous triple barreled chaser guns in the bow. It is suspected that the Dutchman has stern chasers as well but there's no visual material to support.

If you are not familiar with the Flying Dutchman you're looking at a strange ship I assume. The main thing you should know about the Dutchman is that she's a ghostship, haunted by the curse of her captain.
(for more background info visit Wiki)

Now some pictures, with a total length of 129 studs (slightly more than a meter) it was not easy to get a clean background.

Important aspect: this is a waterline model which means only that part of the ship is built which is not submerged (under normal conditions). Because of that this ship doesn't feature a hold but the advantage is that it's a great set for display as it can be placed directly on a blue surface.

The max width is 26 studs and can be measured at the waterline near the forecastle.
I must say that she looks less bulky in the pictures than she does in real. She may look narrow to you while she isn't really.

Following is a picture of the real thing, the floating barge I based most of my design on, I heard it was dismantled a while ago, people could visit the ship at Castaway Cay as part of a Disney cruise. I would have loved to see it for real...




I also made a video but It's very dark (I filmed at bright daylight and yet...)
I warn you, I'm a MOCer, not a moviemaker :S
I'll try to make a new video when I get in possession of a better camera.













The port side of the ship is open to view the interior. Interesting fact; the real ship they used for the movies was also open at the port side.

The stern is probably the most detailed section, while the decorations don't match those in the movie they do add to the typical appearance of the legendary ship .



Yet it is not very faithful to the movie, I kind of gave it my own interpretation.
There used to be more on it though, I was short on dk green vine pieces for my cannon ports so I took some off the stern. As soon as I get more of them I'll recover the stern to its former glory.



Now time for some onboard pictures:


Poop deck (yes I said poop -_- ).

Quarter deck.

Forecastle.

Waist (uncovered part of the upper deck with gangways).





Entrance to the cabin, on a historically accurate ship the steering mechanism should be located behind those doors and a gap/window between them. There would not be a steering wheel but a long pole connecting to the tiller (which is the extension of the rudder inside the ship), the so called whipstaff.


Captain at the wheel.

I made two longboats though they can't be seen in the movies (except for the one W. Turner escapes in). Even the crew doesn't use them, they rather swim to land. I haven't been able to spot their location when stored on the ship, I assumed the waist was the most logical place (allthough they aren't there in the movie).

Time for the interior, the port side of the ship is open, one can easely view the interior that way. The main reason was to save parts though. Interesting fact: the real flying dutchman barge has this side also open and when you think about it, there's not a single scene in the movies where the port side of the ship is clearly visible so on that matter it's actually even more accurate to leave it open :P.


The upper gun deck, you can see the tiller (connects to the rudder).
This deck also gives access to the lower galleries which lead to the lower balcony.
A ship with double galleries is very uncommon, it's not made up though, the Dutchman was inspired by the Vasa which was a Swedish warship from around the early 17th century, The only known ship to have this uncommon characteristic.


The captain's quarters, where Davy Jones plays the organ.


There's a total of 3 stairs on the upper gun deck.


Two of them go further into the lower gun deck.


a view from under the forecastle.




The lower gun deck, pretty wide, this is where the heavy cannons are placed




Good old Wyvern, he should actually be on the upper gun deck but there was more place here.
Since it's fundamentally impossible to build an accurate replica of the Flying Dutchman *(see below) I figured I could allow myself some more flexibility in the design.

















































The crew:



There are so many things I could show pictures but I reduced this page to a max.
for interested: the crew
WIP page


It's difficult to say how many pieces are in this ship, It weights 4,2 kg and is over 1 meter long.
It's difficult to say how long I worked on this, I played with the Idea of building a new Flying Dutchman since about 1 year ago.
This is my biggest ship so far, it is considerabely larger than my previous biggest ship (the Black Pearl) and it will probably remain the biggest as I don't intend to make any big ships soon. One day perhaps, a Ship-of-the-line, it's a dream.
This was it, I hope this time my permanent shelf will live up to its name.

I became a real geek considering POTC movies, I watched them, no I studied them several times to look for details I might have overseen. I'm pretty much the Flying Dutchman expert now :P



For the interested, here (brickshelf) are some WIP pictures.


*There are several scenes in the movie that contradicts certain locations and interiors in the Flying Dutchman, this made it impossible to make a fully faithfull replica. I decided to go for the more realistic way which resulted in the nicer decks but also reduced the captain's quarter in size, in the movie it has the height of two decks.

Medals and prizes:


Thank you BrickQueen :)

Appearently it also won some kind of award...
I just love my username :) . . . :O quiet Flare!

Support this at Lego Ideas, the ship as it is now might not be a sell-able set but it could bring us a step closer to an official Flying Dutchman after all

both and how did you make the bottom platforms even. how high above the original is it

also how make the part where the triple guns home out. the wall that they come out of. how do you build the bottom of that

Quoting isaac macqueen how did you do the part below and including the first balcony on the back
You mean how I attached the balcony to the hull? or the sloped sides forming the arches?

Quoting isaac macqueen i am building your ship on ldd and i need to know what pieces you used for the tilt in the hull in the very back on the bottom by the arch pieces. could you please tell me?
I used the same car roof hinge plates I used elsewhere on the ship, they are placed one plate higher than the previous section. I will try to add that part in the LDD file this weekend. I wish you the best of luck, please do not hesitate to ask any more questions. In the meantime you may find this link useful; http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=58268 It is the WIP tread were I posted my progress during the build. Among others you can find this picture there http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Sebeus/Dutchman/2011/WIP/dsc04004.jpg (a bit blurry though unfortunatly) When you view these pictures you have to keep in mind that the finished ship may not look the same, I reconstructed many parts (The bow ultimately became much sharper than what you can see on the WIP picture.)

Honestly I thought I was looking at a scale model until I clicked on a picture and I still find it hard to believe. This is just amazing. The shaping of the hull is fantastic. I love how you decorated the stern. I really like that you left the one side open so you can see the interior. Beautiful work!

Now that is just the most realistic lego Flying Dutchman i've ever seen, and possibly the best lego pirate ship i've seen on MOCPAGES! By the way, if you're thinking of building a ship-of-the-line, you should try building the HMS Endeavour. Although if you're gonna make it 100% accurate, you'll need 108 cannons! But anyway, great job!

Okay, its to awesome I can't explain it. I can't help it. :P This is epic and awesome! Love the details, the bow, back, and the crew! This has improved very much from your 2008 version! The alligator mouth is wider, than your last one. I'm speechless. I also like your use of sand color, which makes it look more like the real one!! Btw, mind if you check out my improved Dutchman and give me some tips? If so, thanks! Your like, my top favorite builder! But, actually in Dead Man's Chest, they did show the Port side of the ship.

Quoting captin pasquale Wow! This is insane! Two things. 1. I agree your old organ was better. I really dont remember the old one too well, but theres something on this organ thats a bit off if you get me. But as you said its more acurate, so yea. Second you said a perfect replica was impossible. Im curious as to why. Is it that there are two many decks or rooms in the decks or something? Overall amazing!!!!
this picture implicates that the captain quarters has the height if two decks http://images.wikia.com/pirates/images/2/2a/The_organ.jpg But the entrance is located on the second deck as you can see in all exterior pictures. This means that the exterior entrance does not connect with the interior entrance of the cabin. for the movie they used seperate sets for the interior scenes and they made this mistake ;)

Woah! Sweet work on the incredible details as well as all the seaweed and algee! The hull of the ship is very well made, looks very sturdy as well: 9/10. It would have been better if you had made more movie-official figures though: 4/10. The organ was done incredibly well, and all the sea creatures on the stern and the bow added a very nice touch: 8/10. I like how he tripple guns on the bow were made too, as well as the cannons: 9/10. Overall: 30/40. Good job!

you are as close to the real dutchman as anyone ever been, atleast in Lego, i really like the fact that you made one open and one closed side, becasue that fix's the problem with having detachable decks, that you did do just fine in your previously version, the only thing im not sertified 100% with, is the front (or prow) i prefered how you did it in your old version, besides, what i could see from the pictures, you havent made the brocken mast thing that sticks out of the bowsprid, and now to the things i admire, i love that you only made the ship that isnt below water, (because if you did make the rest there is under the water, it would be way to high, to even fit in the camera, and i like that you are mentioning it, for then it dosent seem so square'ish, and i love the variosly colers, insted of the 100% light grey as you had in the old one, (but what are the lightgreen tower roofs at the cabin and the lightblue floor at the balcony good for? BUT i still love and admire this ship, the size, the extremely many details, and the variously colers, are still perfectly combined, and in the top where you did compare your model and the real one, it was actualy quite hard to see the diffrence, the only thing there did i could see the diffence is that the real one is at the ocean, i would rate 456 if i could, but i cant, so i will give you 5 insted, Perfectly job, though, it was good to see the fruit of your one year long work, (the funny thing was yiu thought you would be able to rebuild the old one into this in about a month or two so that you could enter the compatition, Man you where wrong hehe.

Quoting Deus Otiosus I'm very disapointed with your presentation, for your greatest creation yet, I'd expect a musically accompanied video of a creation with muted ambient sounds and lit up by flashlights or similar technical support on dark places. Pity. If I were you, I'd retake that to honour the great Flying Dutchman.
Well, you're absolutely right, retaking is not an option though, atleast not for the moment, my camera's filming capabilities are worthless (considering I filmed this is bright daylight) so I would need a new camera. As for music, yeah, I can't use the original POTC soundtracks because youtube gives "license" problems. I figured it was better than nothing though. Maybe I should make my own music...

Excellent Sebeus, what an impressive model, and so true to its original! With all the little decorations, it really does seem otherworldly, gothic, and "hellbound". I am completely digging the two sharks on the ceiling, BTW. And over thirty canons, I would say that´s mighty impressive on its own... What a great creation! Steffen

Oh my word! This is spectacular! I love all the barnacle-greebles. The captains quarters interior and exterior are a work of art. I love the triple guns as well. The shape of the ship is beautiful and completely accurate. The mix of colors looks great. The minifig legs was an ingenious way to connect the parts together. I can see why you want to keep this together, it would be so hard to take apart, both mentally and physically. This is the reason you are one of my favorite builders. You have successfully done what no one I've seen has ever done before. You created a FD with just the right amount of color mixing to make it look realistic, but it isn't to the point where it is cluttered and looks like a rainbow warrior, which is how most peoples FDs end up. This deserves a nomination in the Mocie awards! Oh, and this is just personal preference, but I think the masts would look nicer if they were all the same style. Is this in CUUSOO?

It could fit in the "legends and myths" category but then again, it wouldn't be fair as I started building on this way before the MA started :P
