We if this isn’t a tranquil scene, I don’t know what it. According to builder Disco86 there are a lot of accurate details if you know anything about yachts. I’ll tell you truthfully, I don’t know anything about yachts. But I don’t need that bit of knowledge to appreciate what a lovely creation this is, in a lovely setting, that’s making me just a little jealous of those little dudes in the dingy.
Although I never owned any LEGO Pirates sets in my youth, I still have very fond memories of playing with these beloved sets in a friend's attic. This model by LegoFjotten really captures the whimsical feel of these sets and brings a huge smile to my face as I recall the endless hours of adventure between the Pirates and the Imperial Soldiers. And let's be real, we all played as the pirates.
I don't fish, or at least I haven't since I was a child. I also don't do boats, unless it's a Disney cruise ship. I also don't eat much fish (but I do enjoy a good fish & chips). So I'm at a loss to explain why I love this little fishing boat by builder Know Your Pieces. Perhaps it's because of the splendid color scheme and building techniques. Or maybe because it's built out of my favorite toy, I just don't know.
No, not that Saturn, this one, the steam powered tug. It was the last one to see active duty in Germany until 1979, and now it's been artfully recreated by builder koffiemoc. The real Saturn has been restored and is residing in the Rostock Shipping Museum. This brick-built one is so well done it deserves a place right by it's side.
Want to hear something weird? I have something strangely in common with this MOC by vitreolum... I was the clouds in the movie Cabin Boy. Way back in the early 90's my friend Tony Gardner was doing the makeup for the film, and they needed someone with an expressive face, so naturally they thought of me (the human cartoon). I'll refer you to this old episode of Movie Magic for more info. A self imposed challenge on this MOC was a curved, studless sail. I'd say challenge accepted, and conquered.
For as long as humans have been traveling by sea we've been afraid if it. Something about those mysterious depths, unseen creatures and the inability to breath underwater has kept us just a little on edge. And while there's no documented proof of creatures like this one by W. Navarre, stories have been shared for centuries, making you wonder.
