Here is a small sloop I have been working on.  This is my first ship MOC, and my first try at rigging and creating my own sails.  It is a Bermuda Sloop, and I have based my design heavily from other member's works.  Ships by Perfectionist and The Pickle by Dread Pirate Wesley have been greatly influential to me, and many many other excellent ships here on Eurobricks.  Thanks!!!

I love it, good job fellow redcoat. However, why are the windows sideways?

Good color scheme, some very well made sails and some lovely proportions to the vessel.  

It looks great and thanks for sharing it with us.

Given a limited amount of bricks, your ship is still instantly recognisable as an 18th century sloop; and that is quite an achievement!

I'd still try to find a better solution to attach the windows at the stern; or just leave them out and add some ornaments.

Thanks for the reply, and the tips!  I will have to update it.
