I often look at LEGO creations as art or interesting technical accomplishments, but this 13th century naval battle scene brings something different to the table, which we don’t see often in LEGO… education. James Pegrum of the Brick to the Past team shares some interesting information about an important moment in European history in the photo’s description (accessed by clicking the photo below).
The build itself is very interesting. The technique used to achieve the round hull shapes is not new by any means, but I have not seen it used for ships very often and the smoothness is quite impressive. As expected of Brick to the Past creations, the ships are indeed very historically accurate. Opinions about the sea in this build may be quite diverse, as people tend to either love or hate loose pieces on builds – but can anyone deny the impression of movement that the water gives?
