[WIP] ShipOfTheLine "HMS Vanguard"

Recommended Posts

Wow, great progress and change!

First off, concerning your removal of the (lower) prefabs, you have chosen... wisely. I agree that the ship looks much better like this, and in combination with the renewed color scheme it makes for more realism. On the other hand it's a bit of a pity, 'cause I really liked your use of brown...

Can't say much more, the lines are looking good, I'm looking forward to see more.

One last thing for now, maybe... You might want to prepare yourself for the urge to widen your ship, going for a completely custom hull... which might come, when you build the aft section, for she might become too 'thin'...

Anyway, great ship so far,

keep it up!

Regards

I'm quite fond of the with so far. I will finish the middle section where the longboats will be situated and then decide if I have to widen it. Thanks!

Great decision on the color change -I love that color scheme! Great work thus far! thumbup.gif

Thank you! pirate_classic.gif

I'm a little late to this party but it is looking good so far! I especially like the tiled deck. Sebeus is probably correct in stating that it will look quite narrow on prefab hulls, but you have already taken measures to fit a lot of detail into a narrower hull. Good work so far, glad she will also have an interior :thumbup:

Yes, she looked a bit to narrow on those hull pieces indeed. I'am fairly happy with the looks of her without the hull pieces but the width still concerned, but as soon as my bl order arrives I'll do a moc-up of the stern to see her in full length, hopefully it looks good but if not I will have to widen her. pirate_sceptic.gif

I was right

I like her new colorscheme, suiting for an English warship, the weather deck looks great.

I'm convinced that this ship will be a beauty when finished even if she does appears to be a bit too narrow eventually.

Personally I think, for a prefab hull, 4 midsections is a maximum, nevertheless, other ship builders find some of my ships too wide for their lenght

so I guess it's also partially a matter of preference pir_laugh2.gif .

Keep it up!
