Here's a follow-up comparison for the two different scales for the Black Pearl models. Sorry about the overlaps, but it's hard to get these two in the frame together and not be tiny without overlapping.
As you can probably see, there are a lot of differences between the two models. And it's more than just adding the rigging. For one thing, the flag on the ICONX model doesn't defy physics. The biggest, most interesting change, IMO, is the “stepped” masts, which give it a really unique look. And a lot more detail has been given to the masthead and stern of the ship.
One last thing I noticed in the comparison shots has nothing to do with the model design, so much as my build strategies. It appears that I have gotten better at putting in a droop (or gravity sag) to the sails on my builds. I still haven't gotten it quite right, but it's definitely improved. Do any of you try to add that? If so, do you have any tricks to share?
