The HMS Maverick, a frigate bearing 14 guns on deck. She is a British ship of the line used
primarily for hunting pirate ships, just recently bringing the Devil's Serpent down to Davy
Jones' Locker. Her sister ship is the imperial flagship, together they have brought down many
a pirate ship.
Well this is my latest ship, the HMS Maverick. I am always trying to become that one level higher every time I build a new ship and this ship is no different. With help from Captain Green Hair's Build a Frigate and many other help from other members' techniques.
So I bring you the HMS Maverick.
Here we see the ship in all it's glory.
Recycled figurehead from Devil's Serpent!
I love this picture as it really emphasizes the curve on the side of the ship.
Well that is the HMS Maverick, more can be seen on my flickr and as always Comments and Criticism are highly appreciated!
EDIT: Right after 3 weeks here is the Mod as promised, I am sorry it is really, really belated I just completed my GCSE's
P.S. Also mods can you change the topic name to "UPDATED:HMS Maverick" please?

It is a very nice design though with nice custom sails. The stern to me looks a little plain and could use some work, maybe space the lanterns farther apart. I like the gundecks and the brick built anchor too Good work mate!

EDIT:After looking at Achille it would seem I definately rushed the stern a bit, mine lacks any splendor, I think I know what I will be doing during revising breaks

I really like that you use string rigging and knotting for the cross strings, I myself gave up on that and started glueing, so you've got my respect for that!
I would add another staysail,the space above the first one looks a bit empty.
As for the bowprit, I think three yards are a bit much for a ship of that size :) But that's my point of view...
One small thing about the accurate classification of your ship, with 14 guns she wouldn't be rated a ship of the line or even a frigate, most likely a "unrated" Gun-Brig or Cutter, but since it's lego It doesn't matter that much. (Even if some of us could be quite accurate about those tings )
But overall great work so far, nice pictures and I'll wait interested until you redone the stern! Keep briggin'!
