Nice modification, though I'd still change a few things - since your cabin is now that high, I'd use the longer castle arcs at the back. Also to make it more movie accurate, I'd remove the last hatch and put the doors and the stairs about 5-6 studs forward for a longer cabin. Can't wait to get my hands on this beauty and tear it apart for MODs. Also have to bricklink the spare black hull parts, won't have money for two sets ...

One thing I struggled with was the lower front deck presentation on a Pearl this small. Late last night I modded it to this which is a decent enough homage to me:

As has probably been mentioned before, the mast build technique, sails and rigging are done identically to the QAR. Compared to various older ships, I really prefer the new method. Also like the QAR, there really is no deck so everything inside the ship feels like it is happening at or below the waterline. We've already seen some mods which address this issue. A nitpick is that the "wrench" pin used to hold the foremost sail in place looks a little too light right up against the black sails. I'm sure this is easily solvable though I just need to find the right part.
Finally a question for those of you who already have your Pearl: did you all get a character card with yours? I didn't.

We'll be most grateful to have knowledge as to what are the extra parts needed and the instructions to make the modifications!
