This sounds very interesting Captain! I'd like to participate in this. :pir-sweet:
But there is a problem, I'm building a ship at this moment too. I have the bricks but I doubt if I have the time to build 2 ships.
The vacantion is coming closer and I don't know how much time I have to spend on my HBO.
All this sounds very promising but I think I will be a bit behind with the building progress. :pir-sceptic:

Well when the project is finished, the thread will be like an instruction. So you can always build one at a later point ofcourse.

Very cool idea! onfortunately I'm already building a frigate and it takes already a lot of time and money, so I can't afford building another one within 6 weeks. Maybe when my ship is finished, I can try to build this one.

You can't get them either from Bricklink or somewhere?

Something like my old frigate, Le Requin, but longer and with newer techniques:

You got the parts so far and the means to get the rest of the list?


Ok, so far Cap'n Blackmoor and General Armendriz are in for MSN help, i can have 3 more.
I will start the build somewhere this week, and then continue the list some more.
I'll be posting pics of every single step, so without help it should be doable as well.

Aha, one of my favourite shipbuilders is also on the team!
This is very handy since some of us are in different timezones, so the support can now almost be 24/7 and the good Admiral knows the techniques as well.

Ok guys, step 2 is up.
I think it should be clear, but if you have questions you know where to direct them.

Next up i want you to think up a colorscheme for your ship, it would be a bit boring if they all have the same color ofcourse.
I usually test my colorschemes by making a simple drawing in paint and putting in the colors.
When you have made it up, please share it with us in this thread.

Good luck!

I also make drawings of the coloursheme on MS Paint. Coincedence? :pir_laugh2:
Anyway, my ship is going to have the Spanish/French Black-Red striped coloursheme, the stern will be black with yellow decorations.
The French L'Achéron from Master and Commander is a perfect example of the ship I want to build. :pir-blush:
