MOD: Lighthouse Island

Ever since I saw the Creator set 5770 I decided I had to buy it. But I wasn´t happy with the island where it stands. It looks too fragile and vulnerable to high tides, big waves, etc. Therefore, I decided to improve the island adding also more details, objects and minifigs to make it more realistic in the minifig scale.

While I like the original, I just can't believe how much better it looks on that baseplate. Great idea, and a very tempting thing to try!

And that sailor's cap really suits the fisherman :)

That looks excellent. Love the use of the baseplate as it makes such a huge difference to the finished model. Really nice placement of all the little details too :classic:
