I started this 2 days after I took apart my first ship, The HMS Royale.  I used some of the same features, but Incorperated some new things like the slanted stern, new sail arrengement, and another mast.  
The name "Vigilant" is a french word meaning "A watchful eye"  I thought it was a nice name for a Privateer.

Deeplinking didn't work for me, so I just put the links here.  Enjoy!

I hope you enjoyed this one.  I'll probably keep it alive for a bit longer.

A very nice build Captain! The coloursheme is really appealing to me. The sails are very nice too!
Your stern technique has improved a lot I see. Perhaps you can add a little more detail like flowers and such though, but the shape is very nice!
The two cannons at the back are a nice touch, and I like the figurehead. :thumbup: The French flag looks great too. :pir-wub:
I see you have some excellent reference sources! Master and Commander and Napoleon Total War! :pir-wub:

ummm, I'm kinda going back and forth between whether or not I should buy it. It recieved an 8 from 'the press', which is kinda on the line between buy and nye. Here is a review from IGN

If I were you I'd go for it, because I can see your interested in the Napoleonic Era, and likely strategy games...

A very nice MOC, a truly lovely frigate to be sure, I love all the tile in front of the captain in the next to last pic, a very nice touch. Keep bricking! :thumbup:

I think it's quite fun for a strategy game.  It takes some time to get used to it though.

Thanks for deeplinking my pictures!!! :pir-cry_happy:

I think it can't turn out very badly when you're using M&C and N:TW for reference.
And you have proved it :thumbup:  The stern is nice and so are the sails.
I also like the chess-pattern in the cabin (I've put it in my ship as well :pir-wink: )
I'm only missing the things to shut the gun ports with. For the rest it's great!
And do you have a crew yet?
