The Devil's serpent,
A small, but fast vessel used by pirates for smuggling. It contains a working mortar, two swivel guns and custom rigging (yay!)

A fierce looking vessel!
I loved how the custom rigging all came together, it makes it look really aesthetically pleasing to me.

The captains cabin. Great inspiration from TazManiac's Pirate Furniture.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my latest ship! And thanks to all the people who are a great inspiration to me with your ships! Comments and criticisms are highly welcome!

I must say that I love the design and the brickbuilt midsection looks good but the bowsprit is at an awkward angle which I think mmight be wrong.The mortar looks good and the swivel guns are also nice. :thumbup:  :thumbup:  :thumbup:

Thanks! I think the Bowsprit depends, I like mine nice and high (for some odd reason) but yes I think your right, usually they are lower.

Wow, that's quite a fierce name you gave your ship, "The Devil's Serpent". The short brickbuild mid has a nice charme to it and I really appreciate how much detail you've added! The playability with the technic mortar is also quite nice. It's also nice to see that custom sails and rigging are getting increasingly popular; and you really did yours well (which is not an easy job!).
Maybe the stern coud be a bit more detailed, mostly at the back, but that's just a nitpick.

A good looking ship! The bow sail is a tad small, and apparently those pirates never have heard of ironing their sails before heading out onto the sea   :pir_laugh2:   But otherwise it's really nice.

I really like the design of this ship! I've got a few bow and stern sections lying around with no mid-sections to add to them, so have been wondering what ways to use these and so this has given me some ideas for small-hulled vessels! A fantastic little ship!  :thumbup:

Sweet Little Runner. I like the shields, makes it look rugged. If I was handed the captaincy I would not complain.
VIRTUAL vs. PHYSICAL. Are either, neither or both REAL?

Posted Image She looks very handy and tough.  I really like the design and the use of the green hulls.  I also like your custom built midsection.  The sails and rigging really bring your ship to like.  Nice job.

You sure have! Its a nice little pirate ship indeed. I like the decorations, colour scheme and the figurhead (Some idea taken from Admiral Croissants Vesta?) And the size is also nice! The green stripe on the hull seems a bit too much curved, but thats only a small thing. I also like the cabin alot, although it seeems to be a bit too full. Where the captain sleeps?
Over all very nice job whit this MOC :thumbup:

EDIT: Fixed Admirals name :pir-cry_sad:

At first glance, it did seem kind of odd to me, but then, when I looked through the pictures a second time, I really noticed some neat little details, and building techniques.

Good job!  :thumbup:
