Overall I'm pretty happy with how she turned out, the sails among other things are not exactly as I would have done in real life, but I can deal with it.
Just over 2300 bricks, maybe the next D2C eh?
Many of the techniques were copied from others, of the top of my head Perfectionist and Admiral Croissant for the deck details and lanterns, and Aalak for the stern. Thanks guys.
First some overall shots:
The deck details:
The stern and figurehead:
After re-watching Master and Commander this past weekend, I was inspired to make a frigate. As usual I don't have the needed parts so this is again in LDD.
You will notice one side has not yet been built, this is because I am not yet sure about the line. Any suggestions from the "professionals" on that would be great.
On to the pics!
This is the curve I was talking about. Thoughts? Top deck isn't built yet.
This is the ugliest view, there is virtually no horizontal curve. I plan to keep it this way though, it's much simpler to construct, as angles and fiddly bits in LDD well . . .
Any ideas for a figurehead?
Hope you enjoyed, C&C welcome.
