That looks impressive! Seems like you've put an awful lot of work in it :pir-classic:
Are you planning to make this in real? Then how are you going to make it so that you can look inside the ship?
The shape is looking good so far, and I can't wait to see some more real details on it like pumps, small chambers and grates.
Anyway, nice job :thumbup:

Looking good so far. Make sure to make the interior hollow so your computer doesn't crash. I had a bad experience with this :pir_bawling:

It looks like an excellent start.  I'd imagine it's pretty close to accurate minifig scale (am I right?).  I wish that I had the money to buy enough bricks so that I could build your LDD rendering for real.

A beauty of a ship so far mate, you've gotten the shape of the hull about perfect, and the black on the bow looks very promising indeed. Well done! :thumbup:

It looks very good, but usually the stern is almost as wide as the widest part of the ship, so I would make it wider.
I would make it a bit more like this:

..well, not exactly but you get the idea :pir-classic:
But it's looking very good already, keep it up! :thumbup:

Croissant is right, the shape of the hull is totally too narrow of the back of the ship, so change the shape and you are doing great

You're more then welcome to ask this sort of technical question over at the LDD forum here at Eurobricks, where there is a whole bunch of other LDD nerds ready to help out  :pir_laugh2:
http://www.eurobrick...p?showforum=128
However, I propose you keep the main discussion (about the ship building process etc) here at the Pirates forum, where you can get better support about ship layout etc.

Also, if you ever plan to build this ship, you might want to use LDD Manager, in where you can analyze if bricks have been produced in the colors you have used, order bricks from BrickLink etc.

hey mate. look, i cant fix the hull without rebuilding the entire thing and that would mean that you would have to start again, savvy? :pir_laugh2: no, seriously, towards the bow the ship is perfect, but the stern should only be about 6 to 8 studs narrower than the mid-section. so, what i think you should do is cut it in half, delete the stern apart from the keel and the rudder, and just make it wider.

hope this helps :pir_laugh2:

or you could just keep going with what you've got
