Very nice ship!

At the moment, even if we entered the forum with only one day of difference; you now have a better starting than me... a frigate default_drool.gif !

By the crew I must deduce that you are a pirate fan, I'm correct?

Good name also :wink: .

Friendly from Spain,

Commodore Ariel Brickson.

very well done Sir! Clever use of minifigure hans as headrailing, I havent seen that technique used often, its very rare as far as I know. Good job in the rigging as well. The only thing that points out a bit is the side galleries at the stern, as they look a bit odd the way they are at this point if you know what I mean, but thats not a problem IMO, im just being silly picky me. pirate_laugh2.gif As I dont even havent never build a ship before, so its wrong for me to judge. pirate_look.gif But the ship is very well made. Congrazulations for your new ship Captain. pirate_classic.gif

Thanks! I am a pirates fan, and when will you post your ship?

Responding to Matthias:

sure, as soon as I can load it to flickr

answering captain becker:

yea, I agree. But that part was built before I saw other frigates of similar style

Answering J9993:

Thanks!

Here are some more pics:

It's an interesting ship,

I noticed the gun ports aren't evenly spread over the broadside,

it doesn't really bother me though, is there any particular reason you did that?

I love that atlantis decorated stern, nicely done!

As I dont even havent never build a ship before, so its wrong for me to judge.

Your feedback is very well appreciated nonetheless, besides, you're pretty active in the pirate forum so you have seen quite a bit of ships,

you actually have a great deal of experience with ships you could say pir_laugh2.gif .

Answering Sebeus 1:

I did that because I stepped out the width twice (by 1/2) and originally had 5 bricks long for every length segment. I changed it through layering to 6 long everywhere. However, the center section would be way to short unless I made the sections around the middle 4 long. In short, I kind of let the model dictate how it turned out.

Thanks, I like the stern too ;P

I can't figure out how to do that right (I am a new member)

In the bottom right corner of any post, you'll see "Report", "Multiquote", and "Quote" buttons. Just click "Quote" on any post and it'll automatically copy the text of that post into your next post.

I hope to see your entire fleet one day (because I know that you have a redcoat ship)...

My own flagship needs sails, but I'm thinking in present it today or tomorrow... becasue in this time I was capable of build two more ships (smaller and not so detailed, but...); so now I have two ships for my fleet and one ship as enemy.

Friendly,

Commodore Ariel.

I have this great sail material, I would love to give some to you (I Have a lifetime supply of it) , but since you live so far away it probably would cost more in shipping than if you got it yourself.

Here is a picture of it:

However I know that there is a tutorial for making custom colored sails.

Do you have any ship sets?

Unfortunately, I don't have any original Lego ship; at the begining, I will make the sails in paper; because the ships are changing nearly every day...

I hope to post my flagship soon...

It might be a wise investment to buy some hulls and masts off of Bricklink, I know most of my ships were built on hulls I bought, I only have 2 original sets (the black seas barracuda and the queen Anne's revenge).

I don't know how; one time I see the page and my face was something like *huh* *huh* *huh* .

And it's also the problem that it's in dollars, while my currency is the €...

Anyway, thanks for the advice.

Greetings.

Great ship! As was said earlier, I really like the Atlantis details you have incorporated in the stern.
