About this creation
Thomas N. asked me to give instructions on how to make my hulls. This might be complicated, but when you get it, it is easy. I got this idea when I got a MegaBlock set. I was a ship, and this is the way the set used.

First make the bottom of your ship. The orange pieces make a round bottom; therefor, it will be more complicated.

Then, take a brick that is the same you used for the bottom. That brick goes to the front, being put one stud forward.

do the same for the back bricks. I made a mistake on the 2 by 3 bricks used on the left. The bricks I put are 2 by 2 when they should be 2 by 3.

Continue the pattern. I continued the mistake.

Now, the rounded edge. see the 2 by 3 orange bricks that are next? That means I should put 2 by 3 bricks.

This is NOT what you are supposed to do. That is the mistake I did on the other hull.

This is the right way.

The next orange brick was 2 by 4, so I used a 2 by 4 brick.

Continue the pattern and this is what your supposed to get.

Here, you see the bricks overlap one stud.

But you can also make it overlap two studs.

This is the rounded side hull. I like to use that on my ships.

The tip is modified. This is completely what I did on Royal French Ship.

Quoting Ryan Tolley Hey Maxime. I've managed to work the bow out myself (before discovering this page). My question is, how do you connect the main body of the ship to the bow? I'm finding it really hard to work out because obviously there's a point where the slope turns into a straight. Sorry if I'm not making much sense! Please get back to me :) Thanks
It's actually quite simple: you make the main body, but the front of it will include upside-down steps. It is these steps that connect to the bow.

Thank you for the tutorial. I need to build a ship for my Glomshire Knights webcomic and don't have the cashflow to buy one.

Wow, thanks Maxime, I'm going to need a lot more white, but I'm going to get started on my cruise ship ASAP!
