From my point of view, I think the stern is a little too edgy(hope you get what I mean). You could use some curve pieces on that. Secondly, there are these strange flaps sticking out under the gunports, I think you could rework on those too.
But overall its OK, keep it up!! :pir_laugh2:

uhm.. i think the gunports are too near each other.
i've seen good looking gunports at 4 studs even on prefab hulls, so on a brickbuilt hull 2 studs are too near. BTW yours is a pretty nice (and ambitious) project, try to consider some 3x3 studs brickbuilt gunports :)
keep it up!

This is going to be huge! I'm very impressed with what I can see so far, however the first picture isn't working for me, I just have a little red x? Anyhoo good luck with the finished design, are you intending to actually build it with bricks or keep it as LDD?

Very interesting project, I hope your computer can handling the rendering  :pir-classic:

If you're going for accuracy, I'd suggest moving the gunports so that they are staggered. if a ship-of-the-line would use gundecks where all gunports would be placed in straight lines, the recoil of a broadside would rupture the ship's hull and possibly even the rips. I'd also think about a bit more curve in your stern gallery (a lession that I had to teach myself as well when building my first ship)

Please resize your pictures to the maximum of 800x600 pixels. :pir-wink:
After that we can discuss the start of this nice vessel!

Sail to My Brickshelf or to My MOCpages, or my Flickr Photostream!

So how is this progressing?

It appears the first image "ddscreenshot3.png" is missing - could you please correct that.
