Whoa! :wub:
Suddenly an amazing ship out of nowhere! And what a beauty she is!
The colours are nice, the shape is perfect, the sails are even better and everything is so detailed! :pir-cry_happy:
Truely an amazing vessel, I only miss the name at the stern, and perhaps you can change the headrails to yellow, but that's about it!

Nice lanterns too. :pir-wink:

That's truly amazing, everything is just so  :pir-wub: ! Much improvement from the last version, which was already pretty good. Are there cannons behind the gunports?

She's a beauty, there one thing I don't like about it though but it's inherent to the prefab hull pieces you used. You see the stern doesn't have a smooth connection to the hull, it's a dissadvantage to the new hull pieces. I don't really know what you can do about that, yet I can't help but notice.
Just a small issue actually, overall this ship is great, love it. :pir-classic:

Very nice ship! I like almost everything about it. The shape, the colours, stern details and the arrangements.
As others have said though, I think the stern is a bit too large and prominent and indeed yellow headrails are more realistic.
It's nice to hear that my sail tutorial was useful to you, and I must say that your rigging and sails look excellent.
Good luck on future improvements if you're planning to do so, and thanks for sharing!

Very nice!  The thing that instantly jumped out at me was the stern with it's round shape, nearly a circle, and I think it looks awesome! The tried and trusted colourscheme of yellow and black always looks good and the whole ship looks very formidable. I agree with others that yellow would look better for the headrails. Excellent work!

It's the Hogwarts ship! nice touch with that hogwarts crest on the front. Now you just have to make harry potter the captain :pir_laugh2:

Well, I don't care if it's God's own personal anti-S.O.B. machine, or a giant hoola hoop, we're not gonna let 'em have it! What we WILL let 'em have is a belly full of lead, and a pool of their own blood to drown in! Am... I... RIGHT, Marines?!" - Sergeant Johnson

This is a brilliant ship, I have one question, does it open up? is there an inside as well?

Fantastic build :pir-sweet:

That is fantastic! Great ship, massive, fantastic shape and stern!

A ship is floating in the harbour now,

The wind is hovering o'er the mountain's brow;

There is a path on the sea's azure floor,

No keel has ever ploughed that path before

Its a very beautiful ship!
But i think the biggest ship class for prefab hulls is a frigate.
With two gun decks it could look a little bit clumsy.
But actually you did a great job on it and i think the height of the masts solved this problem (you can see it on the third and fourth pic).

I especially like the rear of the ship
