Somehow she looks better than before, is that possible ?
Let's hope she stays in place this time  :pir_laugh2:

Translating the whole story would be quite a lot of work.
First there's something about the build (started in may 2009, finished october 2010) and where the bricks came from.
Secondly there's something about the design, and on which real ships I based the Vesta.
Then there's only a description about all the stuff you can see happening on the deck and in the masts.
And finally "search the monkey" :monkey:  This was the only part that wasn't written by myself, but I guess it's nice for children :pirate:

She could look slightly better. I changed the headrails.
First they were made of yellow 1x2 plates, now I used hoses.
And for this display I also took in all the main sails.
Outside of that there are no significant changes.

Thanks for the comments! The topic has over a hundred now :pir-wub:

Insane how much effort you put in the interior and little details like the captain's cabin, the ship bell etc.

Would it be ok, if i steal the idea of the ship painting in the cabin? :P

No problem, some of those details like the ships bell were "stolen" by me as well :pirate:
Some credit would be nice of course, though not neccesary on such a small detail.

Nice ship, and I like the marines, nothing to worry about the yellow line

It's amazing that such an awesome build is getting noticed this far after the original post. Just goes to show how great this one really is!

If it is only 20 gunned wouldn't it be classified as a Sloop of war or Corvette? But other then that a beautifully designed and built ship with a good strong name. :bonaparte:
