Title says it all. A sightly modified Zvezda Pirate Ship done up in dark colors this time. I'm really getting the hang of these things now and can get one done in a couple of hours.

Another fantastic job!

Cool! I didn't know about this one. It could pass for a Dutch Indiaman or small warship anytime in the 17th C. Are the stern galleries molded on, or can they be swapped?

Yellow Admiral, Sadly they are cast on as part of the stern-castle. Given the soft nature of Zvezda plastic they would only be a small bit of work to remove and plate over with a cast of the windows from the rear of one of the other Zvezda boats or just some Greenfield plastic. Alternately you could just back-fill the gallery and sand the outside off.

They did go to the trouble of arming it with more, but lighter, cannon as one would expect with a pirate vessel (sinking the target not in keeping with effective looting). It really is another very nice kit.
