(yes, it sais intersector, not interceptor, this was entirely on purpose)

This is actually not my latest ship, I must have spend over two years to finish it, It served as an experimental ship.
It started out as the Interceptor but It was too difficult to make an accurate stern (the windows are extremely problematic to replicate in the brick) so I figured it wouldn't be a relevant replica anyway.
So I drifted off from the original design  Posted Image

This is the kind of view that should make you realize how much more elegant the old prefab hulls are compared to the new ones  Posted Image

It's funny that this is one of my most simple and easy-to-build ships but also one of my favourites, I prefer it over my frigate eventhough it has less features and details.  It just fits so well on that hull.

It has interior in the cabin :

I bow to thee, oh master shipbuilder!

I love all of your ships, and this one is no different. The color scheme is great and the nice leaning-in sides look very nice (something that I have trouble with).

By the way, your brickshelf gallery is not yet public, so no one can see it.

Wow thats nice, I have to say I like how you use Bluecoats for all you ships it gives it a nice touch, rather than have the traditional redcoat ships.

I still prefer your frigate Posted Image

Are those brick-built cannons? They look fantastic, I think we deserve a closer look Posted Image Does she has an interior — I mean, besides the cosy cabin? Also that system of attaching the prow-figure is very clever, I don't think you have used it before (?) though IMO it surely fits better in a ship, at least in one of this size. Medium blue is alongside with tan my favourite lego colour Posted Image

A ship is floating in the harbour now,

The wind is hovering o'er the mountain's brow;

There is a path on the sea's azure floor,

No keel has ever ploughed that path before

Thanks, I'm not sure I know what you mean, it is a redcoat ship or perhaps you're refering to my frigate ?

Ships make up about 70% of my mocs, when I'm not building a ship I'm probably thinking about building a ship  :pir-classic:

I used that prow before (Spanish slopp-of-war) but I haven't attached an idol on it before. This doesn't fit well on bigger ships indeed.
So far the cabin is the only part with interior, the gun deck is very chaotic because I kind of built this ship on top of a wip which already had a lower deck installed, maybe I'll fix this later.
the costum cannons are nothing special really, I simply looked at these to make them (that's a ship from Captain Greenhair... or Bonaparte, it's confusing really  :pir_wacko: ).

I don't but, the rails are too low I think? Looks like that the bluecoats are ready to fall of the ship. But the whole thing is FABULOUS!Love it! :pir-wub:

Bluecoats? :pir_wacko:  Are you sure you dont mean Redcoats? (Flag for example)
Anyway, fantastic job whit thiis ship, i love the plain and simple cabin. I only think that the gundeck should be open. (If you know what i mean)

there was some interior, (you dont have that at mocpages which is really confuseing, since you say in the intro, that there is) anyways its a nice interior, i like the small kitchen like cabinets that you made in there, they fit well, and i didnt acutaly not notice the costum cannons before now, i dont like costum cannons, normaly, because theres a huge mass diffrence,  but here there isnt, even so its from green hair, its still good,

You made a good choice of colours (according to my opinion, M.O.C.'s main difficulty is to design a ship) !
Nice job !

At first glance I thought it was a bluecoat ship the I realized a split second later that it was a redcoat ship, that is very nice, by the way when you build a frigate how can you make it look like the gun ports are curved, that always puzzled me, anyway, please reply.

You mean the angled sides ?
Then I refer to Captain Green Hair's tutoral, that's the principle.
For this ship I heavely simplyfied the technique into an easier, less parts-consuming variant (one exception; cheese slopes, you'll need a lot of those in my variant).

Nicely done, I like the use of the dark blue, it really adds a lot to the overall look of the ship.

An excellent job!  Am I counting correctly that this has three center hull pieces between the bow and stern?

If Lego had kept the bluecoats, people would still be buying Pirate sets.

Correct, I try to keep that the maximum, using more center pieces makes the ship look too narrow (compared to the its length) in my opinion  :pir-classic:

Sorry, no more interior, I'd say the captain drops down into the gun deck and worms himself to the cabin  :pirate_sad2:
Problem is that I have to completely rebuild the lower hull in order to fix an interior in the gun deck  :pir_wacko:

I updated the ship,
I renamed her the HMS Marianne.
it has now three courses of sails on both masts, I drew some lines on the sails, extra gunports were added (fake ones though) and I opened the gun deck.

The HMS Marianne will be ready to engage in battle with Farore's Wind once again.
I'm thinking about equiping that ship with new sails as well.

Looking great, I like the colour scheme.
just a minor note, I would also add those lines on the backsite of the sails.
