Hello that's my last "fatigue",
After I found the 2nd caribean clipper set, I decide to build a new ship of the line (6 cannons) to destroy the terrible pirates. I hope you'll enjoy immages. (i try to conserve the flavour of old LEGO set, also i use only bricks from the 2 set)

I like it! But it looks like your rigging is a little squished, maybe move the brackets that clip onto it down a brick or so?

Nice job !!!  :thumbup:

Constructive criticism about the stern:
I would add some black in it + bluild it 1 brick higher.

I especially enjoy the fact it holds a nice, large fighting force. Just the thing to take care of that nasty pirate problem.

Nice ship! Love how it looks like a bigger and meaner version of the caribbean clipper. I agree though that the rigging seems a little squashed.

Actually this reminds my of my old creation HMS Enterprise. It was also a "2 Caribbean Clippers in 1" kind of thing, although yours resembles the original more, and has 3 masts and 6 cannons, while mine had only 2 and 4 respectively. A very nice modification you have there!
