She has a great fantasy galleon feel! The choice of colors is quite clever in my opinion and you did a great job on the stern!

Love the medieval shields!

Keep up the good work :)

It has a very original design. I like the custom gunport hatches, the stairs and the colourscheme.

Overall it has a very galleon-like feeling, so perhaps a longer headrails part (like this) would look better.

But that's just a suggestion. It's a fantasy ship of course.

Good luck!

I tried that, i didn't like it, it just doesn't fit in the whole, imo the ship is to long then.

I really like it! :pir-wink: You did a really good job on the decorations (figureheads and shields).

Very nice, the rigging is coming along nicely too, what type of ship would you say this is ?

Your ship is turning out quite original! :thumbup:

May I ask why you are putting rigging in front of the cannon ports and windows? It seems they can not be used any more now?

Thx, if you look to real ships you will notice the rigging starts above the first gundeck, since i've got bigger gunports, limited bricks, space etc...the rigging is slightly before the gunports, but they open, at the back it's before the windows, but that doesn't mind....

They are all some beauty flaws, but it looks good IMO and that's what i'm aming at, also i want to make it as realistic as posible.. and in that case some things aren't practical but more beautiful.

But thanks for all the comment, it's good to hear i'm on the right track :pir-laugh:

Btw, i'm aming for a galleon typish thingy and the crew will be a surprise (will it be pirates or imperials :pir-sceptic:

The rigging is massive work :imperialguard_commander1:

Respect for the ones who has already made custom rigging.

A small update (and a better picture :pir-sceptic: )

You're doing an excellent job on the rigging :thumbup:

I'm not sure about the anchor. It's not very smooth. I do like the fact that you're trying to develop your own technique.

The lamps are also nice. I think they fit very well on this ship.

My only tip is to add a lateen sail to the mizzen mast (like here).

It would make the ship more realistic since every galleon had this sail, and it would make the ship more manoeuvrable.

Thanx for the reply...i was very ancsious (how do you write that :pir_laugh2: ) to see the replies...(i'm very proud for myself how this ship is going :pir-grin: )

About the lateen...yes it is in the plans to ad one, i just wan't to make the rigging first or it will be in the way when i'm buisy with the strings...
