Upon hearing about the new sleek barracuda, he endeavoured to create something more grand, more imposing.

A little more progress but I seem to have hit a wall in waiting for the new bowsers airship for 2 high slopes in medium nougat. 
 The deck plates are to be dark red and using black for some of the railings and detailing. 
 Due to copying the barracudas hull styling, I was wondering if anyone can suggest a work around for an 8x8 plate with a hole in the centre for the masting?

Requiring some parts, ironhook and his first mate(ress) spotted a ship in the distance. Getting on the boarding craft they set forth.

they soon got on board and dispatched the rather strange crew, discarding the nice hat they found.

they soon made off with the true loot that they spotted, and began work on the “dark drake”.

 All the while the real brains of the operation planned his secret next move.

Interesting colour choice for the deck, that's quite a brave move. I might toy with idea of goofy-coloured decks. :pir-tongue:

I couldn’t stray too far away from the 4 colours of the scheme.

 Brown would look too washed out, nougat would be too much, black, too dark. This has  been more of an experiment in colour than anything else, but I stand by the dark red deck choice. 😂

No one's limiting you from trying out-of-place colours. In fact, I haven't seen it in many MOCs, so it would be something refreshening. Still, I like this colour, it's something different.

Your color scheme is fantastic. Those colors really complement each other and really make the ship pop. Have you considered using the medium nougat hull pieces from the bowser's airship? I'm curious how that might look alongside the rest of the ship.

Thank you for the kind words!

 I had considered using those hull pieces but I think they might throw off the “pop” that the lighter colours give, and overwhelm the build with too much of one colour.

Little bit of an update, much happier with captains cabin after a small amount of reworking.

52EF9EA1-A79B-402B-9DE4-ABEA38AE6AC10F78CD2A-19F6-45D1-ABDE-6384385805E6

a new recruit was found and combat tested;

03E6A182-E8D3-444E-8227-E9529910A57D

but they decided to drink the captains rum instead;

ACAEEA02-1F1E-41D0-9DAC-E0B41D56AC64

constructive criticism more than welcome.
