Excellent Evil Willy!  

Now the aft of the ship looks more complete and interesting, although the flag get hidden behind the sail.  Maybe you could consider relocating that becaus every needs to see that this is a terrifying pirate ship heading their way!  :^D

One thing though...  I'm not sure if its the picture or the sails, but the aft sail looks in a lot better condition than the other seemingly Limp and tatty sails.  Maybe they need some starch to stiffen them up.

After looking at your sail making tutorial (quite briefly though) I thought you already had the sails to make stencils.  Perhaps another look will tell me otherwise...

Ah yes, I know which one you mean.  Also found in the Black Seas Barracuda, Skulls Eye Schooner and Red Beard Runner although the RBR sails have had holes punched through them.

Maybe mister phes you could trace them on a paper and mail it to me? I could pay for shipping and I would GREATLY apreciate it :)

Make me a stencil like in my tutorial.

Hopefully you will, thanks!

Wouldn't it be easier to scan the sails at their original size and then Email the images over to you?

The RBR's sails are bigger than those of the BSB or CC. I believe they are just as big as the SES's sail with skull printed on it although I'm not sure since I don't have SES's original sails. Imperial Flagship's main sail is the same size as Red Beard Runner's sails (not counting the smaller aft sail of course) and it's bigger than CC's or BSB's sails.

I think Mr Dreamweb is correct...  I haven't actually built my Red Beard Runner so I'm not sure how big the sails are.  Take his word for it and ignore mine!

Very nice ship Willy. I really like the color scheme.

Actually I meant Imperial Flagship, but I've done some checking today and the Armada Flagship's main sail is exactly the same size as Imperial Flagship's so it doesn't make any differene.

What kind of comments would you like about it, Willy?  As you know the Illustrious Mr Phes has no problem continuing piratical conversations longer than anyone else!

Is it possible you could take some pictures of it against a nuetrally coloured background?  Light blue would be the best since it would contrast with the ship and make it look like it was set against the sky.  But white would also do.  It just makes it easier to look at the MOC without the interference of the background.

I must say that I like the ship - except for the white thread. In my opinion You would have been better off using a fine black thread aka the ones normally used by TLC.
