UPDATE: More recent shot- still missing some sails and details.
The original Phantom (viewable right here on MOC Pages) was a very nice ship... up close... in person... but the extreme amount of black and a lack of light made for some pretty poor pictures.
The second iteration is being recolored, re configured and reborn!
New colors! Dark red, black, dark blue and gold will be featured in the new version.
4 studs wider!
All tiled decks!
New stern featuring a new captain's cabin!
New gun ports! wider and longer (but fewer guns)
Some early reconstruction shots...
Some more recent additions- not sure about the dark blue cabin... I was working on a black version which I think I might have actually liked better- I just felt it needed more color...
This is a lovely ship. The color scheme used you might think would be to dark, but I don´t think it is - the black and dark red combined with the brown decks make a perfect combo!
The only thing that I could find a bit odd was the blue stern, it really didn´t fit on the ship, it looked like you had picked the stern of another boat and put it on this ship. So I´m happy to see that you changed it to black. As far as the construction goes I absolutly love it, although the bow looks a little bit strange, a more rounded bow would perhaps look a bit better (something like this = http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/21250)? I´m not sure if it would look better, it´s just a thought... But overall the ship is one of the better ones I´ve seen (and I´ve been searching the web for some time now to get inspiration to my ship). I´ve rated it five out of five. :)
