Presenting Queen Anne II, the Imperial Navy's latest expansion to combat the rise of the blue coats. Hopefully this will be part of a display at Brickfair.

Beutiful vessel, great idea of using slopes on the sides. It has more of a realistic shape now. :pir-wub:

This is beautiful! The colors and the use of the slopes on the sides are just brilliant!

It's a nice ship, the red colorsheme is a nice thing.  :thumbup:

But personally I would remove one of the mast (preferably the one in the middle), to give it a more realistic look, right now it looked like it was pushed together, but that's just my humble opinion, well done!

Thanks for the advice, it is fairly easy to switch so I'll adjust to three masts and we can make the comparison.

Well isnt three masts in the middle a ship of the line distinguising feature? I guess frigates and sloops of war may have three masts also but if you go with two your more like a brig, barque or a schooner

Here is a picture of the ship with three masts. I actually think it looks less crowded and better proportioned, so I'll probably just leave it like this.

Interesting design, I love how you've used the red angled bricks on the sides!

If just lego had made it somehow like this.....or......it dosent have the very characteristic high overhanging cabin,
so i guess it wouldnt be a very good set, since it dont have that.
But it looks pretty good.
I like the curved slopes at the sides, makes it look really good,
Nice job keep it up

By the way, it dosent look crowded, with thoose 4 masts.
Just look at my Golden Whale, that looks pretty good.
