Cannons: 16

Swivel gun: 10

Crew: 40

I have extended by 2 Ship Middles and 1 stud wider left and right. The decks can be removed.

I changed the slopes on the side walls to brown, which makes the ship look darker and more frightening.

So that the ship does not look stupid, I extended the quarterdeck and the forecastle. I made the quarterdeck a little lower compared to the original. Under the forecastle is storage space.

In addition, I wanted to raise the side walls on deck and have space for the boats. If the loading hatch is used, the boats have to be removed.

I also made a companion hatch on the lower deck. It only has a ladder, because a staircase would have taken up a lot of space for the canon to be used.

So that it fits to the ship I changed the position of the masts. The ship was roughly divided into 3 thirds. In between came the masts. The masts had to continue below deck between the cannons so as not to restrict operation.

On the deck I installed Swivel gun.

The captain's cabin is now larger. There is space for a large, comfortable bed. It also has a table for meetings or eating.

There is room for 16 cannons on the cannon deck. The masts are located between the cannons, this guarantees handling.

Because the crew is large, I also needed a good caboose with a big grill.

This is the sleeping place of the Navigator, Sailing Master, Quartermaster and Master Gunner.

Next to the steering wheel has a compass, hourglass and the ship's bell.

It took me a long time for the bow. I tried different variations. This looked the best.

@NOD

Hello, I'm your first opinion from brethren of the Brick Seas, and I say this is gorgeous. I saw you had fears it was too similar to the barracuda, but this is a fantastic unique vessel. The sails and every aspect are spot on. Well done! 

Edit: for your next ship of this size, I'd recommend adding a third mast.  Moving the first one a bit forward onto the forecastle would make it better too. Thanks, I understand you can't do this now, as you've rigged it.

Great built with rigging and sails, I like how you lengthen the forecastle and quarterdeck. One suggestion I have would be having side openings on those two areas, currently they are big black walls. 
 

Another colour scheme could be Nelson Chequers.

Thank you, the next ship will have 3 masts. My rigging on the mast is not good, I'll have to do that differently on the next ship.

Thank you. Side openings looks better, but the big black walls are more realistic. I could have put additional cannons there. But that would have had other disadvantages. There are many options for the color scheme.

 

 

At the figurehead a 2x3 plate is missing. This changes the angle. I plugged it in the wrong way when it fell off. Because the photo shoot, editing and selection took 6 hours, everyone will understand that I won't do it again.

Thank you for sharing!

But is this ship called "PARAISO" or "P01"?

The name of the ship is PARAISO. It's the same name as the album name on Flickr. P01 - P21 are the names and order of the photos. So I can orient myself better and faster when I write a text about a photo at Eurobricks.

Great modification of the original! Very nice enlargements all around. Especially the rigging and sails do make a great enhancement.

A nice ship !

Are those shrouds custom made ?

Thank you. This is from Corel Model Ship the Sail Set Frigate Berlin. I adapted the masts to the sails.

Nice!

I like the front.

I want to MOD the front of my Imperial Flagship into something like yours.

Can you add some more photos of the front?

Thank you. I found 2 photos that might help you.

Thanks!
 

I also like the fact that you made the interior easily accessible, 10210 Imperial Flagship!

 

The piece that you used for mast rigging, is it official LEGO part?

For the shrouds for climbing I used a mesh grid made of PE that I could cut with scissors.

Material thickness 1mm

Mesh size 10mm x 10mm
