I felt tempted to do some changes on the sail plan. But as these are the original sails from Captain Greenhair's Build a Frigate Tutorial, I just couldn't do it, they have kind of a historical value, you know. (Knowing him he'd probably say; "to hell with that, loose the sails and make better ones!" :head_back:.

Yeah, why didn't you? You guys are nuts!?

She's still a great looking ship! All the little mods make me feel like it's a bounty ship which is made to the taste of the new owner. And that story is almost right, apart from the fact you paid for it off course.?

But I'll get to that later, let's show her off first.

Are there higher resolution images available?

It's a magnificent vessel but 800x600 images are just too small for social media.

Mainly the ship exteriors...  We're due for a magnificent pirate ship on the Classic Pirates Instagram.

That's awesome,

Most credit goes to @Legostone though, I just added/changed some details and took better quality pictures.

I gotta bump this because somehow I missed it. I gotta say this is one of my favorite ships built.  Congrats to Legostone in building her, and Sebeus I on the mods. Ill say it again, one of the best I have seen.  Cheers!

Thanks @Admiral Bejaune for bumping this, because everything you said is true and those builds really opened my eyes to Lego craftsmanship back then! Now as I'm finally a participating member here on EB, I absolutely wanted to let @Legostone and @Sebeus I know that :pir-huzzah2:

I made some last-minute changes on the stern before putting it on display at the local library.img_20240420_133453_310.png

I swapped the windows by pearl gold lattice ones, complementing the ornaments. I gave each of the idols a trident as well and removed the skull I had on it earlier. I decided I didn't quite like the white on there. I have been considering to re-rig the ship
