Nice ship Captain, just saw her in BS! :thumbup:

Only improvement i can think of is the yellow stripe.
Perhaps it is possible to make it in smaller steps, so it flows a bit better?
Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

Exactly what do you mean by that mighty Green Captain?  I'm not much of a builder, as you're no doubt aware so what are these "steps" you speak of?

Nice ship,
and nice little cannons! :thumbup:

Would you be able to give us a close up of one of those cannons? :pir-cry_happy:
I would like to see if it's different from the other cannons in the cannon index.

I've added you ship to Index of MOC Ships.

The cannons simply are built up.

I agree and I do not agree with the good green captain here!
Yes, I do agree the stripe could flow a little better, that seems like a good idea to me.

And no, I don't agree there is only one improvement: I think the sails look a bit distracting, especially the middle sail on the fore-mast and the topsail on the mizzen mast  look somehow to big compared to the other sails.

Lastly, I think the topsail on the fore mast looks like it could also do with a little lowering.

Other than that, it's good! :pir-wink:

Hello,

thank you for your good tips!
I have changed the yellow stripe and the sails once again.
The ship is looking that way now:

I like it now better. What do you say?

Oh, I like this ship very much. I like that the sailors actually have uniforms (the Brits didn't do it for about 200 years after their navy started). The ship is very good.

Did you draw inspiration from the Sophie, Jack Aubery's sloop-of-war in Master & Commander?
Just returned from a 3 or so year dark age, so just getting back into the swing of things. :)

The sails are better like this, and very pretty cannons :thumbup:

Yes, I plan a small squadron to build up.
Up till now the squadron consists of the "HMS Leopard" and this one "HMS Sophia".

And I build 22 cannons frigate at one. To this but later more!

I am a tall fan of Jack Aubery and his adventures.

Yes, HMS Sophie has inspired me when I have built this ship.

Compare these two pictures.
I have changed the yellow stripe only in the middle of the ship.

Nice, I love the cannon Design, I might try to make one of those for myself.
