Hi to all. Last five months I was busy(You know...Russia))), and a lot time passed since I've published my last work.
So, my new big MOC is an Imperial Fort diorama, which I've been working on for three months. It is My first Pirate MOC and I think there can be some, maybe, historical mistakes, so  forgive me for it)
It's still doesn't finished, but I want to show it now, as I don't know, when I'll have a time to end building it.

Great creation, Колпак :pir-grin:
Also, I think you should spread the dark grey rocks out because it looks a bit weird with the big stripes.

Yes, that's true. I forgot to write it: I wanted to build BIG and detailed version of this set at first, so I took some parts from the original one.

A great looking fort you have there! The water and the docks lookd nice, and so does the whole scene. There is a lot of action going on and many details wich is plus always. There is only two things what im wondering about:
1) Fleshie Jack Sparrow, i dont kinda like to mix Yellow and Fleshie minifigs together, and if i have to use Fleshie minifigs and Yellow minifigs together in MOC, the fleshie would be the dead corpse ofcourse.
2) What does the MPS Stand for in the threads title? Is it something like My Previos Creation or something? :pir_laugh2:
Great job anyway.

AWESOME creation 'Колпак', I don't mind the odd grey with dark grey striping down the sides of the rocks it gives an impression of water from the post's streets and building i.e. stormwater runoff....it's gotta go somewhere right ? :pir-blush:
It appears by the grey tower a post built around earlier structures.....totally AWESOME work 'Колпак'....one day Time Team might dig it's foundations and find......Lego ! :pir_laugh2:

I know it's just the lighting, but I love how the horizontal bricks for the water reflect the dock, very realistic :shark:

The bricks under the arches, look very nice.  :thumbup:

And the seaweed used as a kind of vine hanging from the trees give that jungle feeling.

Overall a very sweet set.

Thanks to all again. BrickShelf folder is already public, thankfully, and you can see over photos. There are a lot interesting moments inside the fort.

I think that different shades(I hope this is right word) of minifigures skin makes composition more realistic, so I'm not so categorical in this divisions.:)

What does the MPS Stand for in the threads title? Is it something like My Previos Creation or something?
In fact, I did not come up with a convincing justification :pir_laugh2:  
"P" and "O" letters are close up on my keyboard, and I don't know how to edit the title(

Awesome MOC. I was waiting for the brickshelf folder to go public, so now I can give my comment :pir-classic:
The fort is beautiful, with a nice colourscheme and an interesting build.
Another great feature is all the chambers and holes below the surface. I especially like the well, but also the prison with real lights.
And it's also nice to see everyone doing their daily bussiness. I'm not sure about the mix of yellows and fleshies, but outside of that: good job :thumbup:

Brilliant work, I have the set myself, what i love is how you've taken elements from it but then completely revamped it. You've upped the scale of the set and it's great.

The details are brilliant as well!

Keep it up!
