Pirate Ship 3d model of the Whydah Galley. launched in 1715. Two years later, she was captured off Cuba by Black Sam Bellamy, who made her his flagship. He added 18 cannon to the ten she already carried, and cleared the top deck of the cabins.


This model was made for an illustration for a kingfisher book on pirates in 2010. I took the ship a lot further than I need to, building the ship with sails and rigging that could react to wind simulation. It would be great to do a rough and moody sea animation when I have more computer power.
