HM Frigate Minotaur
HM Frigate Minotaur, 20 guns
About this creation
hello again! this is my newest ship, the Minotaur. i was inspired to do a ship in this color by an illustration i saw of the real Minotaur, which was painted red. i think it came out nicely.

this is by far my best creation. i strived to achieve the traditional lines and look of a man of war. i used a staggering technique to break up the straight lines Lego lends itself to in creations, which dont exist in ships. i think it worked pretty well, not perfect, but in this scale, curved hulls are hard to achieve, and fooling the eye into thinking the hull is curved works the best.

she is 4 center sections long, and 20 guns, with 4 carronades on her top deck. she has a full set of sails: main, top, gallants, and royals. the masts seems pretty accurate to the height they would be on a real ship.

overall, i am extremely happy with the way this one turned out.

please leave me a review with your thoughts!

Again you have created a great ship... Not sure if I like the color scheme, but I love the slightly bent hull... I try to break up the lines of my ships as well... Which i will be posting soon....

Nice, I really lie the stern. Maybe a new sail shape (a little too square for a square sail).

Nice, but from close up it doesnt look that great. Still, nice job.

Looks really cool... makes me want to build pirate ships ;) The only suggestion I would have would be to try and use less studs on the upper deck. I think the rails in particular would have looked really slick using red tiles instead of red plates.
