The Ship,head on.


The Bow cannon deck.
Although she was built a cargo ship,she was armed with 8 12 pounder cannons, encase of pirates so she was given 2 cannon decks each one contained 4 cannons and could be manned by only 2 men to a cannon,cutting down costs and ships compliment.

A birds eye view with the cannon hatches open

The pole is named "bowsprit". 1) I don't like the blockiness and the inevitable exposed studs. It seems you tries to build a big MOC, but didn't have all the right pieces for it (mainly slopes and tiles). 2) There was nothing really new or innovative (except for the "side propulsion", as Deus called it). Nothing really clever or interesting, although it seems you've put a lot of effort into it. Sorry for the bluntness. 3) I usually don't find any use to normal bricks in MOCs except for the invisible support or walls. 4) Not your best, IMO. It's pretty much "quantity of quality". Not many details. Again, I'm sorry for being so blunt, but I want to be honest.

Very good, I think your sails could be a bit better but overall this is fantastic!

Nice job! I like the boat overall but it is a little blocky. I would add inverse slopes on the bottom to make it seem less blocky.

Nice boat! I think it seems a bit blocky though, and it could use some more tiles, but the shape is still very nicely done!

Quoting Jay Rhum No offending, but your vessel is more massive, and a bit blocky, for the original you wanted to represent.
Jay,its always a pleasure when you review my MOCs.And I greatly appreciate your opinions,but I did say that my ship was only lossy based on the picture.

That's a great ship, you've made her, Zac! With a really cool presentation, we can see every details you wanted to show us! I'm impressed! No offending, but your vessel is more massive, and a bit blocky, for the original you wanted to represent. With your turtle, you've once again made one of your best MOCs! ;-) 5, 5, and 5!!!

This is really good the anchor is good all you need is black droid arms instead of tan and it would be just about perfect.

At first I was just thinking 'Meh". But as soon as I saw it compaired to the drawing, and I saw how close they resembled eachother, my mind was changed. Well done!

Cool. I like how you made the hull out of real bricks instead of using those giant pieces. ;)

It's exactly hat I love the most in a ship - it's actually brick-built and even that forgotten side propulsion era ship, the first I've seen in LEGO.
