Beautiful, a work of art, this is marvelous!

The roof is fantastic, the cheese slopes were a great idea, and the rest is just as great.

...And did I mention it's HUGE!!!

The virtues of this piece are nearly endless :pir-cry_happy:

Excellent MOC with super-realistic design!!!

How many cheese slopes have you used for making the roof?

I love the broken wall effect on the side of the building. How did you do that? It looks lovely!

Very nice! The tan mixes well with the light bley, and the roof is outstanding. I too love the broken down look given to some of the areas, it is done very well. The foliage is nice too, with the vines winding through the bushes. Very, very cool. :thumbup: :thumbup:

Outstanding work, the colours match perfectly. I assume those are a lot of cheese slopes on te roof?

There is an understated quality about this MOC that I absolutely love. The entire scene is incredibly beautiful and the use of cheese slopes on the roof is simply brilliant. The end result is a building that looks more like a model than a LEGO MOC.

Truly a masterpiece!

Wow! This is truly amazing. Just to layer the entire roof with cheese-slopes must have taken days. The overall appearance is aesthetically pleasing, and the details fantastic.

Excellent job on this. Will you be sharing some interior images?

Really well done. I liked the tile you used for the roof and I like how you did the wall texturing. I also like the overal color scheme. Your blind pew looks great too. Great MOC. :pir-classic:

You are a very promising new member, great work on this MOC, it looks marvellous!

I hope you will make more MOC's of the pirate theme, you're very good at it.

The use of the cheese slopes is ingenious, as well as a lot of other details.

Nice job :thumbup:

*Climbs back into chair, implying that he fell out* How many Gajillion Cheese slopes do you have? :pir-tongue:

But really, great work, I love the roof and doorways most.

Whoa! Incredible! :thumbup: I love how you did all the details, like the occasional brown cheese slope in the roof, and the surroundings! :pir-wub:

About 2500 pieces.

Not to build was the problem, but to buy it. :wink:

I understand completely. :pir-laugh: I´m currently building a MOC which uses the same roof technique. It won´t be as big though, so I calculated how many I had to buy, and it was in the high 1400s, so I bought 1500 black cheese slopes. My wallet hurts... :pir-grin:

One thing I´d like to "steal" from this design though, is the half-stud offset in the roof. I´m planning to use it too, but so far I haven´t figured out a way to do it without making the roof too thick, or use hundreds of jumper plates.

How did you build the half-stud offset? Do you have any pics? :pir-sweet:

Thanks. :pir-classic:

Yes, this is the way we build the full roof.

As you can see, we have used many "jumpers" or 2x4 plates.
