Make it a bluecoat ship :pir_laugh2:  No, serious, your ship has a nice colourscheme and the figurehead is also great, a real hoplite :pir-classic:
I think there is too much space in the back of your ship. You could improve it by adding a spanker or give it three masts or move both masts a bit to the back.
An anchor would also be a nice touch and very useful.
For the rest your ship is good, I like the crab on your stern! :thumbup:

Thanks for all the input you guys! But to improve it, I have one question myself Admiral, what is a spanker? it sounds like a terrible device!

It's just a sail :pir_laugh2:  You can see it on this picture (number 12 is the spanker):

That's a very good looking ship, I especcialy admire the cabin and the front of the ship.
Also the colours of the hull go very well together :thumbup: .

I great little ship.  I like the colors and the design.  You just need to break up those flat areas in the front of and behind the cannons.  You could easily add two more cannon ports or a second window on the stern.

Well, I will do something about the back, but I am afraid it will be difficult to do the bow, but i will try my best, thanks everyone!

:pir_laugh2: That made my day, and made my signature  :pir-wink:

On another note, Very nice ship.  :thumbup: need to make one myself. Maybe its time, ONCE AGAIN, To pull apart my BB and fail at making a ship again.  :pir-grin:

Good improvements, extra cannons, an anchor, and even spanker yards :pir_laugh2:  
Your sigfig is also very nice :pir-classic:
Just some sails and the ship will be ready for a fight :thumbup:

This is a great ship.  The color scheme is great as are the small details like the crab and flowers.  I agree the masts should be back a bit more, but all in a great MOC.  It has given me an idea for a project.

Large and incharge.

6 cannons per side should be plenty to fend off any oncomming ship.

I like the classic feel, it's like an overgrown BSB, my alltime favorite ship. (probably because I own one)

I think it might be time to do some custom work to the Imperial Flagship



The ship looks great! Love the fire power!
