It's a British ship, not a military unit though.
I wanted it to use no more wide hull pieces than the Caribbean Clipper, but to be more detailed. I also wanted it to be manned by a crew of six, everyone having his own quarters (you can see only 5 minifigs on the pictures, but eventually it will be manned by a totally different crew). As a result, with all this stuff in place, the ship looks a bit too tall, especially the stern. It's unrealistic but personally I don't think that's bad - IMO it gives the model a nice, slightly cartoonish feel.
And, BTW, I've recently created an account on www.mocpages.com, so please visit my page, write your comments and rate the MOCs. So far I've only put this ship and The Red Dragon there, but it will be updated soon. You can even copy and paste your comments from Eurobricks - I don't mind :-) I'll also put a link from each MOC on mocpages to the corresponding thread here on Eurobricks.
