I've been seeing a lot of Indiamen lately. I thought I would give my version some public light. All those pirates need something to raid.

The all red colour stands out quite a bit. :kahuka:  Is this a realistic ship? :bonaparte:  Try adding a stripe (Black would be spanish) or changing the colour altogether. It is a well done ship I must add. :shark:

Very nice, even if the color scheme is a bit messy :pir-classic:  Good job.

I think it's a great ship and I particularly like the bow! If I may add two suggestions: I'd place the main mast a bit more to the centre of the vessel as well as remove the cannons on the bow / build a smaller custom calibre. The modularity is awesome, by the way  :pir-classic:

There is only so much one can do with the red hulls. I am considering giving them a shot of white paint on the outside. Lego is obviously not concerned with historical accuracy so I don't concern myself too much with that other than generally with ship types and parts such as it is. I haven't decided which country's fleet I think it should joint but I am leaning towards English.
