Longship

Hey all,
So I guess I've recently come out of my dark ages, and after lurking for a while, deciding to join. Anyway, here's a build I didn't finish in time for CCC and am just now posting. Criticism appreciated!

Quite a nice longship, the serpent figurehead is excellent and makes good use of those old style hinges. The oar docks and mast are also well built.
I think the main area to improve, would be the hull: particularly the center section which feels a bit flat. A bit more rounding out of the sides would make it look more realistic :)

Really fun. It's like classic space meets vikings, with the blue color, all of those trans green elements, and that flexible arm (which I really only remember from 6901, Mobile Lab). You should have finished off the effect with either gray radar dishes or this piece:

along the side as shields. Favorite bit is the dragon helm's face. Least favorite bit is probably the blocky-ness of the water.

I agree.

Yeah. That's my favorite shield, but I only own 3 atm :/

Thanks for the feedback!
