Nice Thaum! can't wait to see it in brick form. These pictures can't really do it justice.

Interesting idea for the headrails! But I must say, I feel like the colourscheme is to white for me; and having a tumblehome would probably greatly enhance the looks - currently you have a fairly flat side with just a couple cutouts in it. Glad that you took a fairly realistic approach about the cabin! I like the fighting tops too, but I would prefer stepped masts; though these work too. For the sail in the back - look at Bodis latest Frigate; actually look at those masts in general, I think they are as good as you can get with partial prefab masts.

The colour scheme will be explained of course . For the tumblehome, there's a problem : all my MOCs must be 8-year-old-son-proof it is mandatory... so some details aren't easy to juggle... this boat will be rather indestructible than very cute... I have enough pieces for a tumblehome, but it is far more frail with it than without... I can add more cutouts if it seems more suitale.

If you use the 2x2x3 slopes it might work. Should get rid of the flat wall effect while still being solid. You could even consider making the removable parts include the walls to keep the interior space.

II think I don't have enough 2x2x3 slopes, but I will think about it, and if it is better, I will order some, but thanks for the idea, I didn't think about this solution

I'm interested to see how this ship comes together. Masts and yards look good. Looking forward to more! :thumbup:

I use the 2x2x3 slopes in most of my ships. They're VERY solid (the main reason I use them), and even just one row of them does a lot for the appearance.

Ok, I will order some :wink:

Actually, I misspoke: I use mainly 2x2x2 (not 2x2x3) slopes, but either size works well to create the effect.

A very elegant ship in white and gold!

This!  She's really turning out nicely, and that cabin interior is very nicely done!  Looking forward to more! :excited:
