I love ships, both old and new. It is a fascinating experience to board a ship that has floated for over 150 years. That's why I decided to build with LEGO pieces one of my favorite historical ships, the ironclad "Huáscar", which is currently a floating museum. The "Huáscar" was commissioned by the government of Perú in 1864. It was designed by Captain Cowper Coles, built by Lairds Brothers in England, and launched in 1865. This ship is an ironclad turret ship. It was a light, fast and very maneuverable ship by the standards of that time. Its main artillery consisted of a revolving tower with two guns, but also it was equipped with a spur, very effective against the wooden ships (that were the most common ships at that time).
About this creation
The LEGO model of the museum ship was built with about 1500 pieces. The red part of the hull can be removed easily, so you can display the ship with or without the underwater part.
The whole ship itself is a museum. The interior of the ship can be accessed by lifting part of the deck. Inside the ironclad there is a collection of nautical instrumentation, old weapons and some pictures of ships from the 19th century.

I was wondering about the Minifigs, still, given that IRL they would be around 5ft tall and 3ft wide, building to "scale" isn't really possible anyway, so might as well go for looks and playability. I really like some of the details you have added on this one, such as the longboat racks and mast ladders. Love that you made the bottom half detachable, haven't build a ship in a long time myself, but when ever I do build my next one, I was planning to do that. Epic ship!

Hi: Thank you for your comment. The minifigs are not at the same scale of the ship. I used the minifigures just for decorating.
Quoting jim mcdonough very nice looking ship,like the smooth lines,however as you have minifigs aboard,the scale is wrong at 190ft long and a beam of 35ft it really should be around 5ft long and 1 foot wide, amazing a ship of this length only needed 600hp back in the day, like yourself i love ships and really enjoy building them

This is really a great looking ship. I`m quite surprised to see this war ship "disguised" as a merchant ship. Too bad you didn`t add pictures of it as a waterline model. Good luck on Ideas!
