Her name is The City of Roses. She is an 8 gun Brigantine ship being built to the specifications of Captain Matthew Foster, the famous English Privateer.
I started working on a ship a while back when the new pirates line was announced, but the small hulls she originally had just weren't doing it for me. After getting a hold of the new Brickbeards Bounty, I finally had all the pieces needed to make my own Brig.
My plan is to create a ship with lots of interior details and playability, as well as being fairly accurate to how a Brig actually looked. A challenge for sure.
The tumblehome has proven to be pretty tough. I wanted to build something that felt real solid, yet would still look good from the inside. I think I was successful there.
With only three middle hull sections, its pretty short, but I really like the squat and fat look of sir Nadroj's ship, and I hope to replicate a similar overall feel with my ship.
I will continue to post updated shots as I get them done. This ship will take a while for me to build, so be patient with me. More photos can be seen on my flickr page.
