I love your ships but the best is HMS Leopard (HMS Sirius) 8-o

Its brilliant Thats a dream ship to me *sweet*

Add one more gun deck and it would look a bit like the HMS Victory

You are a very good ship builder captain K.

The HMS Cannonball is a nice brig, very well detailed for this relative small ship.

The HMS Leopard..... wow... very nice! I'd feel very safe if I were a passenger on that ship! *y*

But it seems a big bit for the prefab lego hulls. Something just gives me the feeling the lowest yellow stripe is made out of tiles, meaning the top can be taken of the hull, but I'm not sure, could you confirm that please?

If so, I think you could take it of and make a nice brick built hull for it! *sweet* Perhaps that would look nicer.

I also like it better than the Sirius, that's probably because of the more realistic colour scheme.

Good luck on the process!

Anymore feedback for Captain. K's ships - anyone?

Well, if the cannonball is to be a brig, i would bring down the stern a little.

Most brigs had flushed decks, i believe?

Are there any pictures of the progress captain K?

It appears Captain. K has gone away and it might be some time before he gives us an update. I suppose we could always PM him if we're really curious.

Hello,

...

Yippie!

Another Ship to add to the Index of MOC Ships

bild_105.jpg

I like that you've used small moc cannons instead of the regular cannons on a small ship *y*

These cannons are really similar to other cannons in the Cannon Index.

since it's a little different i added it. X-D

The only thing i can think of to improve is to have more space between gun ports (or less gun ports)

Other than that, Good work :-)

Hello

Captain green hair had said:

Capt. green hair was right, the deck of a brigg is flat.

I regarded pictures in the InterNet in addition.

I changed the stern of the HMS Cannonball again.

What thinks it? Looks nevertheless better, or?

It looks way better! *y*

You can also try to put the hatches for the guns on top, in stead of below. Or isn't that possible?

I like the barrels with cutlasses at the gundeck. Nice detail.

The new colours look cool, but I think it would look even better if you would replace the brown log pieces with yellow bricks, and make the currently yellow stripe black, so it would match completely with the HMS Leopard. Just an idea..

The Leopards bow looks wonderfully detailed! Do you have a close up picture of the stern?

Wow Capt. K!

The design of the mini cannons blew me away (no pun intended) to see the Cannonball next to the Leopard shows just how huge the later ship is. I'm guessing it was hard for that thing to find a parking space in the shipyards at Portsmouth. :-)

Are you going to have to destroy the ships for pieces? Seems a tragedy if that's the case. *sad*
