HMS Swift
A fast and powerful galleon
About this creation
After destroying my HMS Majestic, I wanted to build a new flagship. So I built this. HMS Swift is a very fast galleon. It is armed with 8 cannons, 2 on the bow, 4 in the gun deck and 2 beneath the cabin. With cannons peaking out of every side, this makes it a deadly warship. It can outmanourve and outrun nearly any ship in the sea. This ship is designed to seek and destroy pirate ships. So watch out pirates!

Here are some views of the exterior:










The middle deck

The capstan

Bow chaser

Top deck



I've made this ship quite playable. You can even take off the middle deck and look at the gundeck

Another view of the gundeck

The cabin. Probably the neatest cabin I've made, since it mainly uses flat tiles

Here's some more views of the cabin



The ships full broadside

Normaly, the 2 back gaps in the stern are covered up on my ships. But on this creation, I used them as gunports so I was able to place 2 stern chasers.

Thankyou for looking, sea battle coming soon!

Quoting Maxime MaxSamAlex Very nice! The streamlined sides are a nice touch, and aren't necessarily too smooth. Have you ever considered making real life ships? It gives a general idea on the design, even with small changes to details.
When it comes to building old sailing ships, i usually prefer to make them up myself since you can just build whatever you want although i have made quite a few ships based on historic ones such as my HMS Warrior, the golden hind, and the HMS Majestic (which is roughly based on a ship of the line). I am also currently building a french frigate which is based on a historic frigate. I should upload it in a few weeks.

This is rather nice. But I gotta agree w/ Franks' comment, still very good tho.

Nicely done, the streamlind galleon design confirms its asumed high speed. I have to agree with Frank though, the sides look very flat, I think the easiest sollution is to add, what I call "broadside reinforcements" like here http://www.mocpages.com/image_zoom.php?mocid=91774&id=/user_images/12746/12322731911 I like the yellow gun deck line, I understand these broadside reinforcements might take away that nice effect a bit. good job either way.

Nice work! However, let me give you an advice: you work your ships to vertically and they become blocky, try using more slopes.

Quoting "Q M" Christopher Honkzo6 Pretty good. Not as good as Majestic, but still extremely good. I fear it's far better than I can do
I don't think I ever will build anything as big the the HMS Majestic again, since it used up too many pieces. So I'm going to build smaller ships.
