Hello, everyone, I started making this ship last night, went to sleep and put the sails on this morning. Here is the result (and my breakfast):

The rest of the pictures I will link to.

Unfortunatley, as you can see, I still have to make the cannons, but still, here is where they will be. I quite like the yellow stripe going across the way.

Here is the figure head.

My favourite bit, the brick-built hull on the front.

The Side; no rigging, unfortunatley..... How is that guy going to get down? :pir-tongue:

The back looks like the Macdonalds M! :pir-classic:

Oh dear oh dear that folder is not yet moderated!! :pir-cry_sad:

It seems you posted the "wrong deeplink"

You basicly posted this: http://www.brickshel...y.cgi?i=1967416
But this is a real deeplink: http://www.brickshel...tars/avatar.jpg

You should click the images and post that link, savvy? :pir-wink:

Oh, carcus. I thought I was being smart doing that, because the pictures are very large....


I will have to re-upload them, smaller.... Watch this space.

You know how to resize them?  We can fix you up with a Batch Image Resize Tutorial if need be.

This looks like your best ship yet Axle, the shape and colors work pretty well!
Is it not possible to make some rigging out of string? :pir-grin:

Keep it up! :thumbup:

I will try the string thing (:pir-grin:) soon, but I think my ship is too small. Thank you for the nice comment, though! How long would you say it would take to make the rigging?

On a ship like this approx. 2 to 3 hours....
After you've doen it a few time's you'll get faster!

I apologize for my double post, but here is an update,with this new version I still have to put on sails and rigging, but oh well. Also, it's been taken over y Pirates, so could a mod take the H.M.S out of the title, please?
Here's a full shot:

Posted Image

I've added an extra deck, now it has cannons, 10 ports are taken up, and two are decoys. Soon I will put it in a brickfilm.......

Posted Image

It goes well at the front, I think.

Posted Image

Here is where the rigging will attach.

Posted Image

I was at my friends house today, and he asked me if I wanted to take some parts. I left a rowing boat, but took these!

Posted Image

And now to triple-promote my new sig-fig, Captain Axle of the White Lightning. We fill up our days by chasing the Black Seas Barracuda around all day. Wow, typing that has given me an idea for that film! :pir-skull:

Posted Image

Comments and Constructive critism welcome, please reply!
