I entered my ship in the Jolly Rodger Contest a while ago but because of the deadline I didn't have the chance to put much detail in it. So I decided to demolish a great part of it to start over again
The ship itself is based enirely on the Black Pearl, exterior and interior alike, I only changed some colors and added some details (I will add chaser cannons for example).
As you can see it has a complete hull, no waterline model this time.
I have made an interior sketch but I forgot to reduce it's size so here's the link
As you can see there is the hold, on top of that the gun deck and then the weather deck (which will also hold guns)
Starting with the hold:
The hold is pretty spacy, lots of room for cargo, I can accomodate 4 horses (or cows), on these picures it holds 25 barrels and some chests, nicely placed against the sides.
Near the bow there are two compartiments reserved for goats and chickens... I don't have goats nor chickens so I used a pig and a brickbuilt chicken
Then there's the foremost staircase (leading to the gun deck). it is situated in the main hold where also the cargo is stored.
The main hold goes up to the second staircase. then there are two cells (brigs).
After the brig is some more space for cargo and at the end (near the stern) is the armory.
The armory is actually Jack's rum storage :P
The brig is functional ofcourse and there's one on each side.
The main hold.
A part of the cabin, exactly the same as my old Black Pearl, I just knew it was a good Idea to keep the stern section (I demolished the rest).
It fits perfectly on my new hold, which makes sense because both ships were based on the same plan (the black pearl plan).
All right so far you have only seen the hold. the gun deck will rest on tiles so it can be taken out to reveal the hold. I recently managed to make the hull strong enough so it doesn't need the decks for extra strenght. There was a price to pay though, the long bars in the armory for example (they are an extra connection of stern and the rest of the hull, before they were added the stern tended to hang over a bit too much).
There's still a lot of work to be done, difficult work, it's hard to keep the tumblehome while the decks need to come out
