Hello all,
I've been finishing up the paint job on the earliest of my fleet of ships. Here's my newest blog post, showing off the paint job. As always, I would love to hear your pointers, suggestions, ideas, sources and more. I've got three other ships, more details and I think just better quality, on the way as well.

For the white ship, with a nod to Henri IV and Cyrano de Bergerac, how about "Le Panache Blanc"?

Nice work! You've been busy.
How about "the elephant" (as in a white elephant)
I struggle with naming stuff, too.

A nice little fleet for derring-do in Caribbean waters!

" elephant"

Or the olde spelling, Oliphant… ;-)

thanks, friends. Much appreciated. Eumelus and Stryderg, those are some good name ideas. I'll keep you posted when the ship is done!

Great work – keep us posted please!

This blog post got more views than usual. Would folks be interested in a tutorial-type post for the next batch of ships?
