Nice ship! I like the shape, but I think it would be better in a color scheme like BB- more brown, tan, maybe black and yellow. I like the printed sails, and as always, the customized minifigs. The ship design is good, though. Is this your first MOC ship?

Thanks!  :pir-classic:  Yes, this is my first MOC ship, It was quite challenging as I have no actual pirate ship sets.  :pir-cry_sad: Hence the red color scheme.

Yes, I worked on my second MOC ship recently. Don't dispair, the second ship you make is always better than your first (and judging on this ship, I'd say that the second well be better than great).

Oh we are going to OWN the French now!
I guess its cause people relate Battleships to the Royal Navy, Did the french navy even have a name?


Never Fear, Oblivious is here! That sounds good.  :pir-tongue:

All the minifig.'s are very nice, but indeed the ship could be better :pir_laugh2:  Well, without any good shipparts you still did a good job. But you should buy some real shipparts to make this MOC even better. good luck :thumbup:

I remember my own first self made LEGO pirate ship. :pir-sick:
You've done a good job for your first boat! The ship could do with more colours and details to add a nice feeling to it.
So I would say: Add some more details to the cabin, make fences on the forecastle and some ropes (custom perhaps) to flourish it up!
Great work so far! :thumbup:

We bluecoats are still undergoing a great debate if we are French, Americans, or something else.

So, the politically correct term is blue coat.

Thank you very much.

Remember our fleet is at it's full strength, your ship is still in the dockyard, and so do others.
We will give you a warm welcome. :pir_laugh2:

I hope this ship is quickly finished Hound Knight!
Nice avatar you got there. :pir-blush:

I happen to have it on the highest of authority that the bluecoats are infact British Royal Navy. :pir-sad:

I like the ship.  It is way better than I could do if I ever try to build one from scratch.  The red is a little hard on the eye's but I imagine it makes it way easier to swab the decks after a bloody battle.  Good job

Wait, Your saying Bluecoats the the Royal Navy? That makes no sense? Or am I getting it wrong?

Yep. It's debatable, but the Royal Navy did have bluecoat sailors. Elite regiments and officers sometimes wore blue, and in formal ceremonies you didn't see very much red.
