Some of you might've already seen my topic where I had a few questions that needed answering, and noticed what they were for... (some questions still need answering, you can do so HERE)
In one of the most famous paintings of the ship, the hull is white (as well as with a model kit I have), but in many models I see, its copper plated (In one the hull is even black). Since I barely had enough brown pieces for the HMS circumstance, white was the obvious choice.
A sketch, which my ship will soon look like:
The ship, with all my random junk on it:
And without all the random junk:
Here is a general size comparison: (originally I thought it would only be a few studs longer than the circumstance... I was wrong...)
I'm low on 1x2, 2x2, and 2x6 plates, so I bought about 250 pieces from Pick A Brick (Bricklink's getting my orders messed up too much) Which means there won't be any updates for the next 12-15 days, unless I decide to work on one of the SEVEN dingies that accompany the ship...
C&C is welcome. Post anykind of criticism you wan't, as long as it's constructive. Your feedback really helps!
