Those stern cannons must come in handy while you run from the redcoat fleetsPosted Image .

I really like the ship. I think that you blended a lot of colors very well. I am not sure about the black 1x1 inbetween the center window and the two side windows. It seems a little out of place making the ship look like a bumble bee.

I really like how you are doing the stern.  The two cannons look awsome and I really like the stern gallery.  Keep up the good Lego building. :pir-classic:

Good work General A!

I think you got the shape spot on from Blue Hair's manual.  Good head rails and good call on the tan decking, it looks great in photos.

A few suggestions if I may...

I would move the rigging on the foremast back a little bit (like it is on the other masts).

Also, the colors on the stern cabin seem a little scattered to me... I see you are going more yellow in the later pictures which seems like a good plan to me!  Also, since you have that lovely blue strip running down the ship, I would consider using more blue in the stern cabin (maybe even in-place of the black?)  Usually a blue strip running on top of a ship like that is used to incorporate a color used prominently on the stern with the rest of the ship, or so I think.

So when do I get my design fee? Linky. :pir-tongue:

Looks good mate, although I'd try to put some blue in your stern, can't just have it change to black that fast.

She's coming along nicely Admiral! :pir-classic:
I'm only not sure about the headrails. I would make the yellow line on the bottom (with the 1x2 plates) really a bit shorter than the one on top of it.
And I would let the 'cable' from the bowsprit go to just under the crow's nest, but that's just a minor point.
The stern (and the stern chasers there) looks great and so is the bell. :thumbup:
Keep it up, it's going to be a very fine ship. And as Bonaparte said with Perfectionist's ships, if you finish it soon, it can participate in the contest for the 20 best Lego ships ever.
