This is really excellent, I don't know how you can have the vision and the patience to create something this huge and detailed!

It's really shaping up to be a true masterpiece Cap'n! :pir-wub:
That hull is absolutely stunning! The tiles give it a very smooth look.
Those interior bits are also magnificent!!

I can't wait till you start with the top of the ship!

Excellent...!

Nice job on the bow Captain  :thumbup:
Seems like you won't be needing 10+ versions to make it work  :pir-tongue:

The furniture is looking really nice as well.
Impressive stuff. Keep it up

Im looking foward to this! I recently accquired for my Birthday a Pirateology book:
Posted Image
Its about a Captain who has captured a Pirate Captain Carlton and in exchange the Pirate agreed to tell him about a Pirates Life.
I also got a Model ship which is supposed to be Captain Carltons "Swiftbuck" its a Ducth Merchant ship, the model was sent to the Governer to see when the ship comes into port.

Brilliant book, I want to build a VOC ship to!  :thumbup:

After a three weeks vacation one needs some time to try to keep up with things, I missed the update of this beautiful ship.

This is really going into the right direction, I could not really visualise in my head the way you wanted to make the hull upside down with plates and tiles, but now that I see it I love it!  :pir-wub:
I expect the need of many, many Bricklink orders....

I'll be following this project.

By the way: congratulations with moderator-hood mr. Green Hair! You seemed to have careened your way through the ranks rapidly. :pir-sweet:

Another one with the salary of a secretary-of-state (US edition)...
Man Id wish I could build one like them but I dont know how to start, and although I have dozens of guns and soldiers, I barely have any bricks besides the one of my sets.

It is looking really cool though, and since I am belgian, I will support for you ! The Prins Willem and the HMS Victory...We are sure being treated well these times.

I believe there is a tutorial for this somewhere. Not on EB or C-P, but I think a web search might be useful.
