Holy crap, that's really nice! I usually disike LDD creations just because I prefer seeing real bricks, but this is something neat! You have done a very good job, I'll offer more feedback once the BS folder is public. :pir-wink:

Pretty cool.  I don't know how you guys have the patience for the digital designing.  I tried it a couple times and I just about wanted to rip my face off in frustration.  Nice job.

It seems like your doing pretty good so far.

Not to many people have the patience for LDD. (plus you can't do any rigging in LDD :pir-wink: )

You have any better pictures of the stern? That's the only questionable part of the ship. the rest looks great.

IMO Those cannons look real nice!

Good idea on making it longer!

However, I think the Sterncastle (captain's cabin) shouldn't be overhanging so much. For the purpose of it being realistic, you might try and make it half as long as it already is.

Like I sadi before: Amazing work for an LDD ship! Love it!

The stern is far too long and too wide.
But your choice of colours is nice and so are the cannon designs.
I also respect your LDD model since that's always quite hard to do.
And because there are those 'modified plates with clip lights' on one of your cannons, are you planning to tie the cannons to the ship?
That would be great :pir-classic:

Very Nice! But if you want to improve it, I'd say take a step back. Not that it's bad, Its just the brickbuilt hull. It looks like it's going to be another titanic, One hit and it will fall apart. Unless it has a interior frame already?

I'd also say, Cut down on the Stern, you don't want the Captain snapping off the back of the ship because its too long or heavy, It will look out of place. Take for example, The HMS Victory's stern:

It's big but it doesn't overhang the ship by much. However your proposed Stern is more of a Triangle rather than a curved shape.

But that's entirely my opinion, Do what you will!

EDIT: Also, I don't really know why people keep saying LDD is harder to do than MCLAD?! LDD is easy peasy! I might have to do a Tutorial!
