Moreover, I am a nitpicker:pir_wacko:: In my opinion, the masts are a bit too tall for a ship from this period. Other ships could have masts this tall, but 18th century frigates the main mast height tended to be about the same as the length from stern to firgurehead

I have measured out my model. The red frame is a square:

Seems to be correct. :pir_laugh2::pir-blush:

I found resources of historical Mast thickness in comparison to the thickest part of the hull. I tested 3x3 masts. But they are too thick. The 2x2 are the only one fitting from the thickness. I tested it with calculating the values. 2x2 masts are the perfect thickness for my hullwidth. I recommend this book as a source. It's made for model builders but it works perfectly for lego builders. I know there is a english version of this book but can't find it at the moment.

I'm happy that you like my cannons :)

 

@all I've updated the part count in the last update post. Take a look. I have decided to build this ship when I finished my bachelor in two and a half years. This is why:    :)

A few wallpapers from Studio 2.0. Yes! I managed to get all files on one.  :classic: I needed two hours for this. I hope you like them anyway.

(The hoses on bow and stern are not actually there because Studio can't indetify LSynth parts.)

Awesome ship!  Have you started building yet?

Nope :)

@jim7564 Could you send a detailed picture of your steering wheel? :grin: I am interested in a custom one. Or is this a wagon wheel?

Edit: As you can see I resized the masts and reworked minor things on the ship. Also the front decoration is updated. And the cannons on my pictures  are always outdated versions. I can't let them as they are. But the Shape of the cannons will not change. I am just trying out if the Pin Connector 1L or 2L is better working. ATM I use only 2L. Is easier to connect. But the slots do look ugly. The old mold is a bit too expensive. Maybe the front one of the connectors will be the only one.
