:P That would be quite the challenge.

I thinkj what he means is, that this is the first newer ship he has bought and so he didn't know that Lego now use the same piece for the bow and stern. Which is probably my biggest dissapointment with the new Lego ships, as the original stern piece is far superior!
Yes, this is my first of the new generation ships, I love the dark brown but the original hulls are so much better, besides, the new hull pieces wouldn't allow me to work in the pneumatic pump :P

Will you make the pneumatics work for all the guns? I think it is a really cool idea!
I would either need a lot of pneumatic cylinders or design a very complicated technic construction to make that happen.
And I'll probably need a bigger ship as well. Perhaps my next ship will have this feature. Maybe I'll use remote control power functions then, if the ship is big enough to hold a battery box, motors and receiver
Time for an update,
I covered up most of the techical side of the ship.
The chaser cannons are in place and work well, I'm not sure about using the hellhound heads again though.
I also placed the first mast but I'm probably gonna place it a bit higher, but I'll have to be carefull with that since I learned the first mast on a brig is shorter than the second mast (when it has two masts).
Maybe I'll give it a galleon sail plan, so one smaller third mast.
