Nice beginning.

I like the bow you've got here.

But the stern is perhaps a little bit too high IMO. I would have lowered it to match the line of the rest of the hull.

That's a good start.

Great looking ship! It has a really nice shaping and the colours work well together. Speaking of colours, what about 'Carte Blanche' (literally 'white card'), meaning 'free hand'? I think it would work quite well with its appearance and the fact that its build from scratch, so basically on a white sheet of paper.:classic:

Great start! The bow looks great, but I think you should give turning the droid arms around a go - it might look a little better that way :D 

With the stern I agree with Faladrin, it would probably look better if you kept it a little flatter and maybe not quite as wide as it is now - not angling the side windows outwards could already help quite a bit, maybe trying to get rid of 2-3 plates below it as well. 

Line of the gundeck looks great :D

I took in the advice to take away the outward sloping sides of the cabin. I left the height as is, for I really like it. I do however have a problem with colouring the side of the cabin now. Got to options, as seen below.

I think I may put a black plate underneath the windows, just to break up the white a bit, and make the windows pop more.

A great name suggestion, but too Frenchy :wink:. In my mind the Blue Coats are the more French types, and this is a Red Coat ship. I may however just go with White card.

Nice brig so far! I do like the color scheme, especially the dark grey stripe. I know it's probably silly, but had you considered a name having to do with William Wallace's rebellion? You said it was for red coats after all... Heck, even the Claymore wouldn't be a bad name IMO.

Keep us posted with WIP pics if you have time!

It turned out really nicely. Masts and rigging is superbly done.:classic: I agree about the stern. Its not quite there yet... maybe it needs a different approach.
