The Tournament of Retrebution is over, it's time to lose the uniform and return to piracy
But that nice first prize is getting a good spot in my cabin.
The cabin of my
A 12 gun pirate brig with a color scheme similar to that of those fancy frigates of Captain Green Hair and Bonaparte Napoleon (see Captain Green Hair's tutorial).
The tumblehome technique however is my simplified version like I used before on my previous ships; (the Beauty, Merchant Brig, Barquentine and HMS Intersector).
This ship started as an experiment but eventually it became a finished ship after all.
(You might have seen it in my round 2 TOR entry, it had black-striped sails then).
The deck of this ship consists out of brick bricks, so far I haven't seen those used for this purpose but that's probably because they aren't that great for it anyway, they make it look out of scale.
I saw Legonardo using brick bricks for the walls of a cabin, that looked good.
(Just incase you don't know, brick bricks have two different sides, one side are bricks, the other side are planks (how I like to call them atleast).
It's an experiment, this ship has 126 brick bricks in it, I know that because it are all of my brick bricks and I bought those on only two different occasions (one being part of LUGbulk).
I'm more happy with how the cabin turned out, particulary the galleries.
The name is Connor (Assassins Creed reference).
Sigh, my rigging really is outdated , While building this ship I've never considered it a keeper so It wouldn't have been worth the effort to equip it with costum rigging (frustrating work with ropes and knots ).
But now that it's finished I kind of love it.
I hope you like it, more pictures can be found in my brickshelf gallery.
I will also bring this ship to Belug's yearly event; Brickmania Wetteren (4 and 5 May), along with other ships (among them the Flying Dutchman with a few modifications) and a small port (which served well as decor for my third round TOR entry), It will all be part of a huge pirate layout.
