I can add that I decided not to bother myself with the rigging too much. So you can find a lot of technical inaccuracies. I wasn't creating a copy of a real ship. :pirate_sad2:

What has come out is a ship in lite LEGO style. :pir-classic:

Height - 72 c.
Length - 78 c.
Width - 15 c.

Look at my photos at Flickr!

Wow!, that looks beautiful, especially the back.  A very impressive first ship, or any ship for that matter.  Also the crew of musketeers works really well with the ship.

Great job :thumbup:

That cabin design is amazing, I am in love with it! The curving windows are fantastic! I also love the accuracy of this ship with pigs in it, anchors, and organ. Are you sure this is your first ship?

Looks great! I like how you managed to pull the stern together, and overall it looks impressive. I like the amount of musketeers you have, but there might be too many in the ship this small. I also think at there is too many cannons on board, and whats that little house in the bow?
One thing wich i really havent never understand is at: Why peapole thinks at its cool to have a piano in the ships cabin? Kinda useless if i may say. :pir_wacko:  But i like the ship still even at its a bit odd one. :pir-grin:  Makes the ship looks kinda special :thumbup:

I really like your stern design and the overall looks,
I have the feeling it doesn't really matter that it isn't authentic and so with this ship, it just looks good and that is all that counts.
if I have to say something is the elevation of the canons, I should raise the carriage by putting a plate between the carriage and the wheels..
but for the rest;  Good Job

It may not be very historically accurate, but it's a nice ship, full of great techniques and I can see you put a lot of work in it.
The musketeers, the colourscheme and things like winches, modularity, the stairs and railings are nice as well.
Good job. You'll get a well-deserved spot on the blog for this :pir-classic:

The stern design is really cool. And while you may not have bothered with historical accuracy, it is still 1000x more seaworthy than TLG-Sets and put together with great skill.

This ship is like the Black Seas Barracuda (in my eyes) except grander and much much more detailed.  The rigging is awesome, and I love the tiled Deck and so many other details.  The organ, the detailing on the outside by the canon holes and just all the details in general.

Really impressive, I'd keep this one built!!!!!
