Landlubber The Sailing Pirate Ship
I give you my Landlubber. I've always wanted to create a real sailing ship... Eventhough, I'm not sure if she Sails or Drive..... I've had her with me at 2 diffrent exhibits/displays. In Denmark. At the latest display, Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen showed up (Kjeld is THE owner of LEGO) . And i nearly rammed into him on purpose. Just to get he's attention to my ship. He loved the idea, and when i said to him: You have to make a ship like this one. He replyed: yes we just have to do that, so you never know if Lego will make a RC ship at some time. I have 2 video's of her sailing around, and i couldn't decide whitch one is the best. So i posted the first at the top, and the second at the bottom. Enjoy and leave me your comment
About this creation
You will notice she's brocken several places. that's simply because she kept falling apart, at the end, i didn't bother to repair her.

She's powered by a small PF engine in the front.
And a small PF engine at the stern. (That's powering the rudder)









The funny thing is, around 34 children noticed, the idol was a Chima fig.
They didn't care about, the rest of the ship, only that silly idol. Strange kids.









My favorite part of her is the cabin (Besides the fact she can sail)
I spend my last 1x1 transparrent red plate's on it.








:Fourth wall commentary: She does no longer exist, Im replaceing her with a new RC ship .
That will be finished in the next couple of weeks.

wow! a chima fig! and it has a ship attached to it...xd, the crusader looks better, but, the rc motor is a very cool concept, it s great to see it move around, I agree with sebeus for the drivetrain, a tank like configuration would probably work best, 4 wheels, 2 motors, seeing the rudder move is a +, but, it s optional, reliability is most important, as is looks, I guess that for this kind of weight, you ll need xl motors, they consume a lot of energy, but, they re very strong. bravo Morthen!

Nicely done, it misses a few things (like head rails) but being Remote controlled that pretty much makes up for that. I canceled my RC ship, I don't want to sacrifice interior yet it did work though (I used two L-motors to power track gears, this way I did not need a functional rudder and the ship was able to make a 360 locally).

Quoting Deus "Big D." Otiosus Nice ship! And you talked to the boss of LEGO? NICE!
I sure did. He was amazed by her. He's a really nice and kind guy. He always take he's time to each participant and talk to almost everyone who shows up with something to show. Its amazing

Quoting MCLegoboy ! The name seems fitting; it only moves on land. I hope your second versiion is much more successful.
First time i had this ship with me, at exhibit, i had to repair the motor system. and im not kidding, 27 times exactly, Second time i had fixed it, so it didn't brake
