My favorite Pirate set has always been the Black Sea Barracuda and now I bring you my own version:

You'll notice she's flying under Red Coat colors now too.

Thanks for looking, and especially for commenting.

Great job! The tiled floors look great, especially the wooden deck :pir-wink:

Thanks a lot! I've had the ship built for a while but the decks are relatively new.

When I first saw this, I thought you'd just added hull sections to an otherwise plain BSB. On closer inspection, however, I realized how much you've done with this MOC. Nice work.

Thanks! It does have a lot of extra work done on it. Though it looks pretty much the same on the outside. I would like to make more of the under deck accessible but that's kinda impossible without raising everything, and things like the masts in the deck would all have to be changed. It's hard to see in the photos but all of the masts are actually inlaid into the deck so the ugly basses aren't visible.

Thanks! It took a couple tries to get the ropes right so the anchor would work properly, especially with the deck tiles.

Even though I like the idea of modding the BSB, I think the increased lenght does somewhat spoil the overall appeareance since the ship is -apart from the stern- quite sleek.

Thanks for sharing though.. the dust on it tells me that this is "old" work.

I would agree with you, but personally I think because the stern is so high when the ship is shorter it makes the ship very squat, where when it's longer it makes the curve up to the poop deck much more sleek rather than an abrupt angle.

And yes it is old. The original lengthening is pretty much from when the second run of these finished. The tiling and some of the details and rigging are more recent. It actually was changed to be an airship at one point, but when that fell through (literally because the "balloon was too heavy) I redid everything.
