About this creation
SHIPtember entry at 125 studs length

Built from the Yokosuka naval shipyard in the early part of the the 19th century and successor to the Katsuragi-class corvette, the Ashigaru was a combined wind & steam propelled warship whose bronze-steel hull protected its undersides and was manned by a small platoon of experienced battle-hardened samurai.

The ship was designed for fast rapid deployment, reconnaisance, raid missions and was equipped with ten medium range cannons for main firepower. During bombing raids it used two depth charge ramps near the bow on both sides of the ship that can deliver explosive barrel charges as well as rock battery at the stern that can inflict severe damage to anything that's underneath it. Wing flyers are deployed for short recon around the ship and at random times to watch for enemies that might try a sneak attack.

Quoting Justin L. Awesome ship, I like the greebles in the bridge. Also, does the guy in the jail cell still have his gun? O_o
Not a jail cell but an elevator to the lower level.

Quoting Graham Gidman Amazing! Why doesn't this have more comments?
Probably because it's not Star Wars.

I love this concept of 'village-ship'! my fav parts are the rocks ready to be dropped on enemies, and the cannons stations, the planets as balloons are a nice touch too, great color scheme and style!
