The design I have in mind is grande, a rough 15 procent larger than what I'm showing now.
I wanted to wait as long as possible with buying additional bricks and that was a good thing because I see there's quite some space for improvement already.
Anyway, this is what I've build so far:
She's a bit longer than my Black Pearl, taller but about the same width.
Either way she's an improvement compared to my first version of the Flying Dutchman. Back then I was under the impression that you can't build a ship without prefab hull parts
The color sheme stayed mostly the same though I think the grey looks rather boring.
personally I'm disturbed by the long black line along the ships' side, I would have prefered grey or dark grey instead but I didn't have enough parts. Incase you were wondering, the black line is what makes the angle on the side, I used hinged car roof plates you see, they make a less agressive angle than the hinge plates as used in Captain Greenhairs' Frigate. I did that because the FD is much taller compared to a frigate.
I left one side of the ship open, you might find that cool so you can view the interior but the actual reason was that I don't have enough parts for a complete ship. On that note, you don't see the port side in the movies anyway.
Anyway there will be an interior
I had to reduce the size of the organ in order to make it fit in the captains' quarters, this might sound strange considering my previous Flying Dutchman was smaller yet it had a bigger organ. However, in the previous version the whole captains' quarter was situated on the gun deck, not where it is supposed to be.
I think the new organ looks nicer than the old one though.
The stern still needs a lot of work, there's no place on this ship where part selection is more critical.
But the bow needs the most work of all, apart from the fact that she's missing her "teeth" she could look a bit more elegant.
Now, I'm gonna have to order parts but I haven't made up my mind wether I'll finish this ship or start building an improved version right away.
You see I found a colorscheme that could work:
A combination of old grey and dark grey, dark tan, trans. yellow and some dark green and trans. green accents, actually I'm not so sure about the trans. green anymore.
Oh well. C&C is appreciated.
I'm under the impression that the Flying Dutchman is a Galleon, correct me if I'm wrong on that and while you're at it I'm also confused about POTC Queen Anne's revenge, a ship I would say she's also a galleon.
