2-deck LDD ship

25 posts in this topic

Hello all! I have begun work on a HUGE ship on LDD. It will have 3 masts, 2 decks, and over 30 guns. I am not sure if I will build this in real life (I can't afford it) but I will try to build it on LDD

Good luck. Don't let your eyes pop out of your head staring at the computer too long. Can't wait to see it.

I didn't err!

Looking extraordinary good Admiral! It looks like you have a ship to sail soon!

The work on the bow is nice, it has a nice shape and the colours are good.

May I recommend to use coloured stripes on the hull between the gundecks instead of plain black?

Good luck finishing her, you've done a huge part already!

It looks great M! :thumbup: I've never gotten the hang of building in LDD, but it seems that you have.

Thanks, friend, I guess I'm all right :pir-blush: :

and i'm not even that good! :pir_laugh2:

time for another update!

here, I finished the bow. I tried a lower bow, just for the heck of it, and it turned out great!

AND I added railings (God bless Captian Caravino, railings are so damn hard!)

Looks great so far! If this is LDD, how much does it cost so far?

In LDD you can only choose, Red, Black, White, Tan slopes. No Gold, Thats why its hard for me to visual my LDD HMS Unicorn.

Looks very good, I especially like the view from the front, that looks perfect. Maybe you can make the ship a bit longer, it's quite short and high now, but you decide. I like it :pir-classic:

Thanks for compliments and critisisms, guys! You make me feel so wanted :pir-cry_happy: . I worked a bit on the stern, and I also enlongated a bit. I'd post pictures, but I need to do work.

It is time for updatation on my progression (whatever that means :pir_laugh2: )

The ship is near ready to launch! outside is complete!

The stern needs more detail...and yellow...but i'll take care of that later:

Lets start with an overall shot:

Nice ship Admiral! I love the stern!

A suggestion though:

I would add a brown stripe through the thick black line to break the plain colour and to add a border between the gundecks.

Great work on this ship Admiral, keep it up! :thumbup:

On blackmoor's comment: yes, that is what I wanted to do, but removing half the ship is impossible. so I can't unless I really wanted to rebuild the ship from the midline up (and I don't). I agree that it would look better, but I just can't.

On Commander's comment: no, they are made out of 2x2x3 pillars, they are just there to show where the masts will go.

Thanks! I began to rebuild the hull and the bow, but then I had to completely redesign it. So HMS Colossus shall remain as is, and my current project is the HMS Conquest.
