Spanish Caravel
While this particular model is general used for exploration by my Spaniards, it is quite able to hunt pirates as well.
About this creation
This Caravel got its main inspiration when I got the base for the imperial armada flagship, the masts, and the sails, yet no other parts besides rigging. I basically decided to get out my lego bucket and just have fun with the design and color scheme, and made a little model that came out amazingly well. This little one was built far in advance of the Flame Rat, just I didn't get around to submitting it until afterwards. She was actually my first ship ever built out of lego, and I'm pretty pleased with how she came out:)

First off with a picture of the bow

Followed by the port side

The stern

a close up of the bow's cannon

A picture of the broadside of the ship

and one of the same broadside a little further away

and one of the exploration team that goes to shore


In case your wondering as to why the further off pictures only had one piece of rigging and no cannon flags, not to mention the color was a bit off base, it was basically because for the first month of its life this ship steadily evolved into its final version with the flags, even color scheme, and the rigging on either side of its masts. hope you all enjoyed looking at my little MOC of a caravel! Note: Please forgive the quality in most of the pics, I had to shoot most of these under florescent light, and it makes my camera freak out.

Quoting Jake H. Would happen to have any ship building tips? You seem to be pretty good at building them and I have a friend who's about to begin construction on his first ship.
Hmmm, even though I'm majorly inexperienced here....I'd have to say lots of reference material is key. Look up a lot of good pictures and duplicate or try to duplicate what you like the look of. Also, browse around on line for different techniques and advice on your model, it seriously helped me:)

Quoting Sebeus I it looks fine, I suggest you use some more plates and greeble parts (such as clip plates) to give it a more interesting surface
actually the rather plane surface was one thing I was trying to achieve, as explorers were never to attached to a ship it was never to artful usually, not to mention with pirates always blowing them out of the water! But thank you for the comment, and I'll take your suggestion into consideration if I ever have the pieces:D
