Hi! I'd like to present my latest moc - pirate ship which I called "Black Skull" It was made in classic -pirate style, based at 6285, 6286 and even 6290 set - sails ;) This is my first big pirate ship moc, please comment it, enjoy ;) pirate_classic.gif

I like this ship. It does have that classic pirate feel as well. I also really like the brown decking, as well as the smaller details in the captains quarters and the sails.

Well done.

I'd rather classify that as a modification (of the BSB) than a MOC... There's nothing wrong with modifications though - I used to make them all the time a few years ago, and I still have my own modified BSB (although much closer to the original than yours).

It appears the sails are red versions of the Red Beard Runner sails - are they customs Tobiasz or did they originate from a clone/imitation brand LEGO set?

Actually the big sail with Jolly Roger looks like a red version of SES's sail. :pir-classic:

I think they're customs.

EDIT: Sorry, I didn't notice the holes in the big sail, just in the aft sail. It looks like they're based on BSB's and RBR's sails then. :pir-classic:

Here's a link to the Red Beard Runner's sail in all its glory.

Would it be too outrageous to suggest the sails on this MOC would be a much better choice for the upcoming 2009 Pirate ship?

This is superb.

It's a great cross between the BSB and SES, but what really makes this is the sails (I've never said that before) - adapting the RBR ones to SES shape must have been really difficult, but they look great :thumbup: If only this had been released as a set :pir-wub:

You've managed to keep it looking like a set, whilst having MOC aspects to it, like the expanded crow's nests :pir_kiss: I've always thought that the BSB could have done with some of those yellow 1x2 arches; and you've done them brilliantly!

What is an interesting point - how did you achieve Tobiasz? The sails look quite professionally crafted.

Thanks for all comments, the sail with skull is the same as sail in 6289 - I only change colours - all sails in this ship are scans of the sails from 6289 and 6285 set - I change the colours in photoshop and print the sails on paper ;) The sails which are made of paper looks like real lego sails and it is a simply and cheap way to make all lego sails when you don't have real pirate_classic.gif

Very nicely done indeed! I never would have guessed that you used paper.

I've noticed you've put some work into the presentation as well, I realise you can download border graphics and such, but did you create your own graphics?
