14 Gun Brig: Pinnacle

Mr. Townsend has shared his ship building expertise again with us, this time in the form of a 14 gun brig called the Pinnacle. He has displayed some amazing custom sails that look very authentic, and even used 5 different kinds of string to simulate the rigging. The blue flag is a great touch as well. Bow to stern this sailing ship is a masterpiece.

'A watchful eye'

Being inspired by the movie Master and Commander; the far side of the world and by the new game Napoleon:Total War, Captainkiwi has built an awesome privateer ship. The custom sails, the slanted stern and some other things make it look very good. The name 'Vigilant', meaning 'a watchful eye', really suits this ship and so does the figurehead. Captainkiwi has improved his building skills since his first MOC, the HMS Royale, and with a good result.

So check out Le Vigilant by Captainkiwi in the forum!
