HMS Surprise
About this creation
A remake!

Scale 1:40’ish
L: 150 cm
B: 26 cm
H: 114
Bricks approx. 19300.


Looking back at my earlier designs I found that my version of the HMS Surprise, just like the HMS Ontario, was somewhat wanting.

This is a model of the HMS Surprise launched as the corvette Unité in 1794.
In 1796, The Royal Navy conquered, refitted and renamed her. She later on chased pirates in the Caribbean for several years.

The ship plays a central role in the Aubery-Maturin stories. This includes the movie from 2003 Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World.
The HMS Rose, which was later, renamed HMS Surprise, plays the “role” as HMS Surprise. Neat, but somewhat confusing.



Being notoriously bad at taking photos of my creations there are some Renders below, but you need to look at the LDD file to get a view of the details of the creation.






However, she has been on display at LW Copenhagen 2019. A Swedish AFOL has taken some fine Pictures from the event on this link.

Impressive work! The proportions and shape of the ship's hull are reproduced very accurately.

Quoting Nick Barrett Wonderful build. The shaping of the hull is exquisite and I'm sure the rigging was not the work of a moment...
Yep. While the hull is most, if not all, of the design work. The rigging is the real killer when building.
