WOW!!!!! seems very tall. Most ships with more than one gun deck tend to curve inward at the sides. Look at this Link. Besides That, The ship looks great! Wonderful color scheme and everything! If you want everything viewable, make sure the pics are in GMP format and 800x600 max. DOn't worry. Its a common mistake easily fixed. Love the ship!

P.S. I REALLY like the sails! what material are they?

She is a very tall ship, a real beauty, pretty good work but for a ship that tall I would recommend the falling in or....tumblehome I believe? effect for looks^^ other then that excellent! :thumbup:

I see you have really improved your building skills since your last ship :pir-classic:
The mechanism to lower the boat is very cool, and the hanging maps in the cabin are also a great idea..I might do something like that in my ship as well :pir-sweet:
Does it really have as many cannons as gunports? that would be quite awesome!

Just....amazing! I watched and I watched at the pictures, and I saw it was good :thumbup: .
The Cabin, but also the deck and front are very nicely done.
Thanks for sharing.

I bought the fabric at a store called wal*mart if you live in the U.S then you probably know what store that is. Its a heavy duty fabric that is stiffer then normal fabric... they have it in this white color i used and also they have a dark cream color that is really good as well to make weathered sails with
