The curved yards and improved rigging really add to the whole, making it look just that bit more like a Chebec.
I agree on having a small ornament on the stern can add something, I made a very small one on the Telesell.
Now I am obliged to make a version 3!
The build a frigate tutorail!

Due to it being longer than the Telesell, it comes much closer to the model you've shown.
It's so good to have some different ships than those square rigged ones!

I just so love when there is a reference picture as well. Nice to read a little of the story behind it as well.
I think you captured the shape very good in this one.
The rigging is very good as often when certain people are involved in it.
I also think you captured the bent masts VERY good from the original one. Simply an awesome MOC!

How did you get the sails to be such perfect color? They appear stunning, and really compliment the classical look of the boat.
Very close to the real thing. I don't think you could have done it any better!
Stunning work once again!

This Xebec has always been a perfect sailing vessel since it's completed.
