So I'm planning to do a maelstrom MOC from PotC3 and I'm working on the Dutchman now. This is what I've got so far. (Main pic-concept art of the Flying Dutchman)
About this creation


This is the main hull part. I'm new to ship building and need some advice. Is this the usual way to begin a brick hulled ship? If not, what do I need to do? I no the bow might not be normal but I like this style. The only reason it's not finished is because I ran out of pieces.



This is the part that needs the most work. As before stated I'm new to ship building and I have no idea about how to do the stern.

Comments and constructive criticism appreciated!

I agree with Sebeus. You should start smaller, as the hull expands rather fast, and you'll want to pace your brick intake. However, the overall design you have going should work in theory.

Quoting Sebeus I The easiest way for a brickbuilt hull is to use basic bricks (2x4) and I advise everyone new to costum hulls to do that, it's like sculpturing. Now from what I see here it's pretty big, if you intend to use that black pearl I see in the background it will be much too big. For someone being new to ship-building this is one huge hull already, maybe try something smaller first ?
I don't plan to use the Pearl in the background, that was just a comparison to the official set. But I will try something smaller first. Thanks for the input!
