101a

A few weeks ago I bought the base elements from the set 6271 and I was thinking about what to do. I decided to build the ship, but with a new colorscheme and new sails. A great thanks to the awesome library.

Yes, I know that the towball plat is red. :pir_bawling:  My next BL shopping tour will change it.

Cool MOC Kerntechniker!  The built-up prow looks very good (I like the use of the textured slope piece).

She is a lovely vessel. Worthy of the Spanish naval tradition. The sails turned out very nice and the colors look great.

Could we have some close-ups please. :pir-sweet:

Great ship! The custom sails turned out really well, but the ship could do with some more ropes. It would add more detail and realism.
The flags are especially nice, great work. :thumbup:
The blue gunport flags somehow go well with the ship itself, nice colour combination.
The overall shape of the ship is a bit blocky perhaps, but at least it has the nice classic look!
Keep building!

I see 2 on each side.  Plus it looks like a ship that could avoid canonfire due to it's size.

Well two positions for canons at least.

That's right for the pictures two cannons, would have been nice. Maybe wenn the towball has become black. :pir-wink:
