Lovely stern! You ships always have the most realistically shaped sterns I've seen in Lego ships.  I also am amazed how well you do the riggings on your ships.  Great job  *y* !

It's an old ikea curton, looks very similar to broadcloth. I've weathered it in hot water with coffee and tea, then i smeared it in completely with white gleu. When that's dry, i've ironed them. The stripes are simply made with a drawing pencil.

Ah, a marvelous ship! I like how it's using the skinny hull! The rigging is lovely and fits in well. The back is really good, and reminds me of a good small frigate. The cannon placement looks cool (the picture). There's alot of nice vibarant detail placed into this ship.

Great job :-) !

Edit: Awsome sails!

What I really like about this ship is: the rigging (Great work! I don't agree with Mr. Hairy Ruben, your rigging looks much better than the original piece used by Lego  :-P ), the sails and the stern (Very realistic! I've always had problems with sterns myself!). What I don't like so much is the middle part of the hull and how the black bricks contrast with the grey hull pieces - it's too abrupt and the three layers of black bricks look too "pixelized" (I can't find a better word) in contact with the grey. Lego themselves found a nice solution to this problem by putting one layer in different colour between the two black layers - note the white layer in the Black Seas Barracuda. Perhaps you should try the same?
But that's just a minor drawback, apart from that it's a great ship!

The language is called gibberish ;-)

I used some steps from evil willy for previous sails too with cheap wal-mart fabric X-D

This ship has been added to the Index of MOC Ships too *y*

Keep up the great work Cap'n *y*

Actually you can.
The black top hull part from the Flying Time Vessel instead of the grey one should look better :)

Right. The trick is to separate them for the first time, after that it's easy to put them together and apart again.
