Hello there! happy holidays :)

It's been a little while since I posted something, so here I am, with a new MOC :pir-grin:

I rarely build anything other than ships,in fact it is the first non-ship construction I make, so we can say I had a very nice (and busy) week working on this, but it was worth every second :)

I based my desing on the original 6273 Rock Island Refuge, or at least that was the idea at the beggining hehe, then I felt inspired to add more and more stuff, and finally this came out, I name it the Rock Island Fortress, enjoy :)

This is terrific! It reminds me so much of the 1990s Pirates sets. I remember they did several shipwreck sets and they all looked dreadful (one of them I never even realized was supposed to be a shipwreck until I read that in a review; I always wondered why it had a sail). But you really did a great job making it look like an actual broken ship. Superb!

Love this! It has a really classic lego feel. The only thing is that the fortress looks to put together for what I imagine as a pirate hideout. But that's just me. Really like the shipwreck.

Good job on adding 'rock' to Rock Island Refuge, the original set lacked that I think, nice shipwreck as well, reminds me of that rare set Pirates Perilous Pitfallpirate_classic.gif .

Hehe, yes I wanted to recreate something with classic feeling, and seeing that various sets have a shipwreck, I thought it could be nice to do one too! (not to mention it was a lot of fun) pirate_satisfied.gif

I love this. Really a nice build. And the shipwreck is a classic addition!

Great MOC - when I look on it I don't know why Pirates series aren't in any catalogue pirate_classic.gif . Wish that one day they will re-edit old stuff from times when Blue Coats fought with pirates pirate_laugh_new.gif (dreamer).

Detail, detail everywhere! Great MOC! We don't see enough pirate fortresses, even though there were many throughout the Caribbean, on islands such as Tortuga.
