146B

My smallest prefab hull based ship, a square rigged sloop.

It's a bit minimalistic I admit. The technique I used for my polacca didn't work out on a ship this small so I build it the old way.
I used all of my red cannon hatches, 6 of them but there's only room for (small) cannons at 4 of them, the two in the back are "fakes".

The way I attached the rigging, sails and masts is... sloppy to say the least, yep definitely not my best point on ship-building :grin: .

Go to Classic-Pirates.com

More pictures in my Brickshelf folder (once public).
I was thinking of entering this ship in the Mocathalon (at mocpages) in the category 'Does it float ?', thing is, does it float ? :laugh:
Anyway, there are some other mocs on the way as well.

Nice little sloop! I agree, the masts are a tad, "sloppy", but nonetheless, the ship, overall, looks great. I also like your rigging technique. :pir-classic:

I've always like your rigging style, actually--it's very classic, which fits your ships' designs. Anyway, nice little sloop (though a tad chubby), and I'm looking forward to the upcoming bigger ship. :classic:

As usual, great work on the (very difficult to me) little ships!

A nice simplistic ship! The sails match quite well. Still I believe it is rather outdated concerning the building techniques used. :blush:
