It's not often we see great MOC's like this with custom hulls. According to this Brickshelf gallery, she belongs to Captain Pete and his wife who go galavanging off attacking trade shipping and other small ships.

really really great ship!

It seems Darkspawn is a member of EB.
Lets hope he sees this!

Thought it was an interesting approach using "upside-down" rigging, but one which worked brilliantly!
I love the little telescope for the pirate in the crows-nest too

And Mister Phes, just because I shorten your name to "Phes" does not mean you can call me "Zuloo". Captain Zuloo to you!

I really like the chain in the water. It looks a heap better than just an anchor floating on top of the water!

The technique you've employed to create the hull is rather impressive. Even though it lacks the curvature found in the prefabricated hulls the inflection of the stern and bow isn't overly obtuse thus enabling the technique to work effectively.
The Black Meg exemplifies using some ingenuity can allow builders to overcome limitations in their inventory which may otherwise prevent them from attempting to create certain types of MOCs. Highly inspirational!

I had no idea that you were a member here DARKspawn. I suppose I should have checked the member lists to see if you were a member here before I frontpaged your MOC. I really like your design, and I look foward greatly to your future ships.

I do think that the stern is a little high, this might look nicer if it were a little lower, or hanging over the back a bit more.
The build a frigate tutorail!
