Hi, it's been a while but things got itchy and i started to build a new ship after destroying the Prinses Nikki (i needed it for parts :tongue: ) so here's the first dek...20 guns so far.....
I'm not going to build an interiour so it's a mess inside (but hey it's the outside that will be visible)

You're off to a good start here, I like the colours!
I do think the curve is a bit heavy, it might look better to delete the middle step and make that 1 plate higher. But it depends on what type of shop you are making of course.
Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

The build a frigate tutorail!

Deck 2 ?
Nice, good thing you used car roof hinges, I think the bow looks a bit chunky, some hinge bricks/plates could help.
As for the curve; I like it better when the lowest section is closer to the front of the ship but that's just personal taste.
Keep it up, it's gonna be huge :thumbup:

Shop ? no wonder you think the curve is heavy, oh well, it was to be expected from a redcoat  :laugh:

Will you be building the bow and the stern the same way you did before? I am not specially found of it as it is way too squarish and simple. You have shown such a skill in the Nikki that I think you should try to be ambitious and go further with more complex techniques for that areas where the curves get harder to describe :classic:

This is looking promising, the red/black colourscheme is always a nice combination :thumbup:

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

I wouldn't be making fun of my commander. There is a reason we like red: its the color of your bluecoat's blood! :tongue: lol

Thanks for the replies, it really helps me, took your advices....rases the middle one step, so there's less curve and build an advanced bow....
