Thanks for the comments Kyle. As for the mast spacing I refer you to this plan view for the HMS Surprise, a very similar ship.
Note the wider gap between the mainmast and foremast. This was one of my inspirations for this ship and found it quite useful in judging gun spacing and masts and so forth. I will add sails and rigging once I finalize the design.
Nice lightcycles btw :)
I have a weakness for tall ships, but this is thoroughly excellent :-). The bow is particularly inspired - I've been trying to come up with a way to break free of the pre-made hull pieces and you seem to have done just fine without them. This would look great in full sail with some basic rigging thrown in - do you have any paper and kite string laying around? I do have to say, tho - it looks a tad long in between the fore and middle masts, but I am not an expert. Still, a great legoing niche well filled.
