The checkered gunflaps really set this one apart. Overall, looks like a fun play ship.  :pir-sweet:

looks good, if I could make one suggestion .... maybe move the front mast forward 2 or 3 studs.

May you be touched by his noodly appendage

Good looking ship, I especially like the name on the back, it really has that real ship feel to it.

Nice tumblehome, figurehead, name and stern.
And also a nice new way of using the idea of 'Nelson's chequer' :pir-sweet:
Maybe it could use another rope or sail from the mast to the bowsprit to make the bowsprit more useful.
Still, nice ship :thumbup:

Good use of the "racing flags". Looks very interesting. The angled lanterns onthe stern looks kinda weird to me, though  :pir-blush:

The design of the overall hull flows very nice.  I like your tumblehome effect.
The captain's cabin is very uniquely done, but it still looks nice.  It's too bad you couldn't fit more windows in it.
Good job on your vessel Lt.

The main improvement I could see being done to this vessel is to spread the gun ports out and move a couple onto the bow.  

Lt. Gonville, you mentioned that this vessel is a 10 gun frigate.  However I see that the broadside has only four guns.  Where are the other two guns?
