My latest ship, I went for something more realistic this time (the tall masts and sails).
A 12 gun trading ship, built for speed, the Interceptor from Pirates of the Caribbean inspired me here.
Although I picked some other colors.
She's built on old prefab hulls (3 midsections).
The decks are gray because I ran out of (dark) tan :/
Wait, what's Mell Gibson doing there ? :P
For those that don't know, a Brig is defined as a two-masted vessel, square rigged on both masts and the main mast (last mast) typically has a brigsail attached, also called the spanker (the trapezium-shaped sail).
(If you're thinking about a joke right now I can add that the upper deck near the stern is called the poop deck )
...Oh sorry, was it boring ?
And now some comparison pictures:
a family picture (all the ships in this picture have been made using the same building technique).
the comparaison pic is a dream! you tempt me into making a traditional ship first, but, I already have so much work... still, it s interesting to see your techniques, as now, I can taste it since I have one, I estimate my biggest problem to be the body of the ship, I really like yours, but, in space...I ll have to find a trick to make it harmonious, this ship is a beauty, although it might look less realistic, a little color in the sails would accentuate the excitment of this treasure, the poop deck? lol! how can this be boring? lol!
I have an idea of what this is going to be used for,
and i sure hope you, I, and B-) is going to encounter it, great job, i specialy like your family shot, its really amazing, BTW, im going to post the Crusader really soon, but ive just gotten home from skærbæk, and i drove 400 kilomters home.....so im really tired now.....And another BTW, The Grim Reaper finely got its name tag XD
