HMS Pallas

HI Everyone,

This is my first post, and I'd like to introduce myself with my ship the Pallas, a 28 gun frigate. This is the second ship I' ve made. Even though I ve emerged from my dark ages for quite some time I've never really poster anything until now. So, here she is. I am a purist and therefore am against handmade sails and rigging, though it would be more honest to say that I can't be bothered to make any. Besides...the ship is in mooring and isnt going anywhere, so she doesn't need the unfurled sails :-)

Please feel free to post any comments recommendations or remarks you wish to make.

Many thanks

That ship looks awsome. I am really impressed. I was wondering if you could post some other pictures of your ship. I would really like to see some close-ups of the hull and a good view of the stern gallery.

That looks like an impressive ship, based on the IFS' base and color scheme. I'd also like to see more detailed pictures. :pir-classic:

Ooh what a wonderful ship you've got there! :pir-wub:

An excellent way to introduce yourself! Welcome! :pir-sweet:

The hull has a great shape and colours, top notch work on it! :thumbup: Those sails are also very nicely done, but I think she deserves more rigging.

It looks a bit plain up high, a few more ropes would add even more to what already is a pearl.

Soon! :pir-classic:

Great work, anglezoo :thumbup:

I really like how you have made the ship although as what Captain Blackmoor said she could use a bit more rigging.

The stern looks great with those golden windows and flags.

This is a great ship, beautiful in her simplicity and reverent to period design. I rather like the color scheme, as it seems to reflect the taste of the time from which it comes. I have to ask, however, you rater her at 28 guns but I see none on the spar deck and only 11 gunnels to a side on the gun deck, a total of 22. How do you make up the missing 6? I really don’t mean to be cruel and apologize if the mistake is mine. I think you may be over selling a ship that doesn’t need it. 22 guns is respectable and still in the same rating as a 28. The brick built sails are an interesting touch, especially with the mini figure activity all about the ship. I’ve seen guys make unfurled sails from white or tan plates, with relative success, perhaps that’s a solution if ever you change your mind. Once again, lovely ship!

I aim to get a few more smaller guns on deck when I get round to it, 4 bow and aft chasers and 2 somewhere in the middle.

Very nice ship!

It has enough stuff on the deck like the bell and a captstan (and soon a few cannons) and the hull is also nice.

I like the colourscheme and the small curve in the line of gunports.

I do agree with Blackmoor on the rigging though. I prefer custom rigging anyway but just lego is very good as well (but it could use some more ropes).

But like I said it's a very fine ship with a lovely stern :thumbup:

:thumbup: I join to the clapping :thumbup:

Very smooth design, great idea for the sails, and we can see a lot of action inside the ship

P.D.
