128C
While there are so many nice looking ships that have been built for the bluecoats, I decided to stick with the classic Lego ship look and build them a new ship that is capable of taking on any pirate ship and the IFS.  I kept some of the CC's features such as the prow, and overall color scheme.  I also used some the features from the BSB, such as the midships railing and deck, and the upper deck.  Since I ran out of the one plate for mounting sails on the classic masts, I had to use some masts from the QAR.  I also switch to the QAR hull as I did not have enough middle hull plates.  She will be given a set of new all blue sails, with 3 on the fore and main mast.  But for now, here is the Caribbean Clipper (Galleon).

This is a really good modification. :thumbup: The QAR hulls worked just fine.

Nice ship! Even though it's not exactly clear to me what kind of ship it is.
It's called C. Clipper, you call it a galleon, and to me it looks like a barque.
But it doesn't matter a lot, I just had some doubt in which index I needed to place it. Good job anyway!

I'm honored that you would index this ship, thanks!  You bring up a good point on the classification.  I went with a galleon mostly because of the high stern castle and I don't recall barques having large cabins like that.  It could also fall into the sloop of war category as well. :pir-grin:

Nice ship, the dark brown looks great but the a great disadvantage of the QAR hull is that the stern looks terrible.
The upper part of the cabin looks a bit odd I think.

The Caribbean Clipper was the first, and only, "large" LEGO ship my brother and I got when we were kids, and I still regret having to give it away when I went into my first dark age during High School.... :pir_bawling:

That said, I really love your "updated" version:  It captures the overall look of the original and even adds to the overall design, making it even better than before!  Good job, there! :thumbup:
