Enjoy.
Just returned from a 3 or so year dark age, so just getting back into the swing of things. :)

Strange colours... In fact the quality of the pictures makes them even more strange - the ship looks almost pink to me.  :pir-classic:
I'm not a big fan of those brick-built sails... they look way too blocky. However I llike the design of the upper deck and the sterncastle. I'd like to see some pictures of the ship's interior.  :pir-tongue:

I like it.  Especially the figure head.  :pir-wub: It might look better with different rigging, but overall it looks great. The color scheme reminds me of an old 17th century ship.

Though it has an interesting colorscheme, it is pretty well build.
The shape is not bad and the stern is actually pretty good IMO.

The only thing worrying me is that pirate flag and the skeletons on the rear, altough our VOC guys were a bunch of pirates we had a bit of a different flag to hide it :pir-grin:

Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

That's interesting... While I saw this green lower deck before, I must've missed the pictures of the stern cabin revealed, hence my previous comment about the ship's interior.
Very colourful indeed, but maybe the captain likes it that way?  :pir-classic:

Oh no, there's a hole in the bottom of the hull!!!  :pir-tongue:

Interesting, The Klein sounds just like "te klein", wich is Dutch for "too small"  :pir-tongue:

Perhaps it was intentional?

I could swear there's pink bricks on the stern...
