127D
My newest battle ship, a three-master with 16 cannons, crewed by bluecoats.
Basically this is an improved version of my older frigate, Din's Fire, which was my first ship with an actual tumblehome.
Relying on Captain Greenhair's Tutoral I used hinge plates to achieve the shape. Ofcourse there are some things of my own in it, particulary on stern and prow.

Posted Image

I just couldn't go for costum rigging, it's the most frustrating activity in a ship building process, I rather take it easy and use the prefab rigging ladders  :pir-wink:
Posted Image
(you can see al of my bluecoats in this picture).


Posted Image
I particulary like how the catheads turned out, that arche piece is perfect.

Posted Image
Ofcourse this ship wouldn't be worth its name without a proper Triforce Crest  :pir-classic:

Posted Image
The quarter deck can be taken out to reveal the cabin's interior.

Posted Image
There's a panel in the cabin that can be taken out as well, this takes us to the hold where the rudder chain is located.
The rudder however is not connected to the steering wheel, the construction messed up the cabins' interior too much so I took it out.

Posted Image
The electric wire goes from the main hold to the table in the cabin.
(There's a light brick under the table).

Posted Image
The two lanterns on the table actually cover the light brick, pretty sweet huh ?

Posted Image
The double capstan; it can be used to haul up both port and starboard anchors (not at the same time though).

Posted Image
There is a mechanic switch in the forecastle which allows you to set whatever anchor you'd like to haul up.

Posted Image
The main hold can be accessed via the grates in the (more or less) center of the ship.

Posted Image
It holds the batterybox for the cabin lights and in the middle runs a flexible axle, connecting the capstans with the anchors.
(lights aren't connected yet because I couldn't find a 9V battery, I have one in my Techic Pirate Ship but that's not accessible, which is also the reason why I didn't fully integrate the batterybox this time, if I ever need to replace the battery I don't want to demolish half of the ship  :pir_laugh2:  ).

I thought about using more than 4 midsections but I figured that wouldn't do any good considering the proportions, It's already quite the narrow ship.
More ships are coming, my Flying Dutchman (probably without sails) and my new redcoat brig  :pir-classic:

Sweet looking ship you have there!  The colors and features are very nice, but the TriForce wins IMO.

This is a nice looking ship, like the colorscheme, i especcially like the headrails.
I don't like the last mast, it seems a little off it's place, it should be more foreward, also a bigger sail would be nice although you used the original LEGO sails, there are no bigger ones :pir-hmpf_bad: .

Quite a nice and colourful ship you've created. I really like the working rudder chain and the lights in the table! :thumbup:
But why do they have a Blacktron logo on the stern? :pir-grin:
Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

Just a personal touch, to add that little bit fantasy to the ship  :pir-classic:

I find the mizzen mast to be placed really nicely. And so is the rest of the ship: I really like it! And as always, your technical "upgrades" are neat!

That's a very nice upgrade! I really like all the new features.
I'm thinking of using light bricks myself in the future, could you show us a picture of the light on the ship in the dark?

Hmmm, that's what you get when building a ship not based on any really model  :pir_laugh2:
I could place the mizzen mast a bit more forward with 6 studs max but then again, because the sail is rather small it might not really look better.

Yep I'll make a picture tomorrow, the cool thing about this light brick is that it also has a flicker option = disco cabin  :pir_laugh2:

GREAT MOC MATE!

I see you are a great fan of Legend of Zelda, because your ships are named like OoT powers. And I can see the Triforce in the stern.

In any case, your ship is great...I like the light effect, the deck and the stern
