It has a nice ship-y look to it but I think that it is built a bit sloppily.

Looks good, and can be used as both soldier and merchantship, which is always nice.

Great ship General! I really like it.
The coloursheme is nicely done, the idea for the rudder is nice too.
I don't really like the flintlock pistol and cutlass on the side of the ship, it's not really realistic.
Put them in a barrel instead, if there is room of course.
Some different heads would be a nice thing too.

I've noticed the spyglass figurehead! Looks like a ram to ram the enemy vessel and sink it.  :pir-skull:

Well done Armendariz!  :thumbup:

Overall this is a good MOC shiphttp://www.eurobricks.com/forum/style_images/pirates/folder_editor_images/rte-quote-button.png :pir-classic:  your sails are nice, I like the use of official Imperial sailors.

Improvements include......

Blackmoor is right, the pistol and cutlass attached to the side of the ship is rather....unreal, shall we say :pir-sceptic:
you should put it in the barrel.

There is no real room for cargo, do to the fact that there are cannons in the hold.

I wouldn't mind a photo or two of the cannons. They look pretty good.

Overall it looks good. Good job :thumbup: :thumbup:

I will put the flintlock and cutlass in a barrel since I only put 2 guns on the ship I have some extra space.
Thanks for the comments everyone :pir-blush:

Very nice Genaral armendariz! Like Zorro said, very neat that it can be imperial or merchant. Pirate too, I suppose, if you add some flags and figs.
The only thing I could think of that could improve this baby is some nice backgrounds. But that's honestly all.
Very well done mate!

Very inventive cannon you've got there General! I might use the basic design of it for swivel guns.
Your updates turned out very well, the quality of some pics has also been improved.
Great job Armendariz!  :pir-blush:
