I positively love this ship for a number of reasons. The hatch leading to the lower deck is an amazing and original idea, as is the bulkhead. The use of the rounded cabin windows supplements this design perfectly and gives me a mental image of conquistadors sailing to the new world, or a flame lit pirate ship in the harbor of a gluttenous and debaturous town full of ale chugging pirates and a captain scheming up a plot in his quarters. The arched windows just seem to compliment this so well, i cant see the use of the 4x4 square windows (with lattice) doing the same trick here, although it works very well in most cases.
As much as i like seeing scale ships made out of legos, i like this kind better. Lego's should be legos, and for some reason this is the only ship on this site that gets my imagination working like when i was a kid. I built a ship very similar in profile to this one not long ago with a very 'golden hinde' kind of hull but yours came out better. If i had this in my posession, i would turn the deck into brown plates, and give the cabin a pirate style makeover with mugs, kegs, maps, a table, a wench, some gold coins and a few cavalier pirates. I also think if you have the ability to LED the cabin from the inside out, it would make a killer display. Something about the glow through those cabin windows just gives me the chills in the best possible way.
