Jorge Reis built this wonderful tall ship representing the school ship Sagres of the Portuguese navy. It is the third ship with this name in the Portuguese Navy, so she is also known as Sagres III and is on service since 1961.
The ship was available to the public during the Braga Brincka 2014 event, a LEGO exhibition organized by the Portuguese LUG – PLUG. I wish I could attend the event and closely observe the MOC, including the wonderful small details in the ship’s deck!
I wonder if the pressure on the hull parts isn’t too big to cause some deformations…
I know that’s still work in progress (WIP) but this micro world war II fleet by Paulo Castanho is an awesome work and needs to be shared!
All ships have a great level of detail, specially if we take into account the incredible small scale of 1/350.
Most of the MOCs were already built using real pieces. Be sure you take a few minutes to find them on his Flickr’s gallery ;)
