    Do you need a Captain for your fleet?

    That's a neat minifig, but yeah still a bit too steep.

    The still-nameless Ship 02 doesn't really seem like a military vessel to me, or a pirate. Probably something more like a merchant or general private vessel - still not quite sure there either, I just think it looks cool. Regardless, the crew I came up with for out is a bit on the scrappier-looking side, not proper/military enough for Captain Jones, there.

    Also added some rigging

    Don't know if it was intentional or not, but I like the Ukrainian flags on top of the masts.

    Not intentional, but nice catch! You're the first to say Ukraine, others have said Sweden. I was just trying to add an extra bit of color.

    Looks like that flag didn't show up until the mid 1800s. That's a bit late for this vessel. The Swedes, however, have been using those colors since the mid 1600s.

    If anything, it's probably Welsh.

    Ooooohohoh that Chitty.

    I read the original Ian Fleming book to my boy about a month ago, then we watched the movie. Twice. Then we started attempting a Lego version using the pirate ship rowboat backwards as the car's body. So freaking hard, so many complex shapes. Hard to do it any justice at a smaller scale.

    need to learn more about this stuff
    When I see how good these submissions are that don’t get picked, I realize I would never have something that could make it to becoming a set!

    Yeah, it's huge, and so detailed. Probably cost about $800

    So awesome. Given the significant number of gun ports, I might suggest privateer.
