I like this ship. It does have that classic pirate feel as well.  I also really like the brown decking, as well as the smaller details in the captains quarters and the sails.
Well done.

I'd rather classify that as a modification (of the BSB) than a MOC... There's nothing wrong with modifications though - I used to make them all the time a few years ago, and I still have my own modified BSB (although much closer to the original than yours).

I like it.  Did you put the holes in the sail?

It appears the sails are red versions of the Red Beard Runner sails - are they customs Tobiasz or did they originate from a clone/imitation brand LEGO set?

Actually the big sail with Jolly Roger looks like a red version of SES's sail.  :pir-classic:
I think they're customs.

EDIT: Sorry, I didn't notice the holes in the big sail, just in the aft sail. It looks like they're based on BSB's and RBR's sails then.  :pir-classic:

Here's a link to the Red Beard Runner's sail in all its glory.

Would it be too outrageous to suggest the sails on this MOC would be a much better choice for the upcoming 2009 Pirate ship?

This is superb.
It's a great cross between the BSB and SES, but what really makes this is the sails (I've never said that before) - adapting the RBR ones to SES shape must have been really difficult, but they look great :thumbup: If only this had been released as a set :pir-wub:
You've managed to keep it looking like a set, whilst having MOC aspects to it, like the expanded crow's nests :pir_kiss: I've always thought that the BSB could have done with some of those yellow 1x2 arches; and you've done them brilliantly!

To the barricades!

What is an interesting point - how did you achieve Tobiasz?  The sails look quite professionally crafted.

Thanks for all comments, the sail with skull is the same as sail in 6289 - I only change colours - all sails in this ship are scans of the sails from 6289 and 6285 set - I  change the colours in photoshop  and print the sails on paper ;)  The sails which are made of paper looks like real lego sails and it is a simply and cheap way to make all lego sails when you don't have real Posted Image

Very nicely done indeed!   I never would have guessed that you used paper.

I've noticed you've put some work into the presentation as well, I realise you can download border graphics and such, but did you create your own graphics?
