Not much to say about it... I've already done a few revisions - made the sails more "billowy," did the masts with bars in them to both make them more sturdy and have something to attach the flags to... I would like to get a red stripe under the deck with the cannons, but unbelievably I have like 10 red right wedge plates of that size, and NO lefts (??? must have been a bulk buy).

Not bad at all, I love the small detail and the elaborate sails!  :thumbup:
I do think you could make her slightly wider in the middle.
Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

The build a frigate tutorail!

That looks really cool, and very detailed for its size.  I feel the front slope is a little early IMO.  

Great job :thumbup:

Thanks for the comments, I really appreciate it.

I noticed when I was building it that it was too thin; it's hard to see in all black, but on the bottom, from about midway to the back, uses these:

Which lets it taper slightly towards the back.  I simply don't see how, using a straightforward building technique, to make it fatter in the mid section.

I'm also not particularly happy with the front, either.  It probably does slope too steeply, and the piece on front is not what I intended, but I didn't have the piece I wanted in black.  I will definitely be modifying this ship and will post the results... just placed a BL order, but haven't even been invoiced yet.

I may start over with a completely different technique... I just grabbed pieces and built this one; I think I will use graph paper to make sure to get the shape right.

I actually updated this ship shortly after posting the original here, but never got around to taking pictures.  The thread asking if your ship had been indexed got me thinking I should, because I think the newer one is nicer.
