Hello, I already showed here the "sabre des mers" a little pirate sloop I made, I also made a little river Hideout where the crew is unboarding some treasures, sorry for the bad pictures, I'll make better pictures tomorrow :


General view of the Hideout :
Posted Image

pirates are unloading treasures and stuff.
Posted Image

a big canon on a little mountain, at the back we can see an adventurer ( minifig from the 5918 set, with a cowboy hat ^^ ) heading to a cavern, inside the cavern there is a big amount of jewels and treasures in a big chest, but the picture is too dark, I'll post the picture of this treasure tomorrow)
Posted Image

a pirate is fishing while another one is lowering the foc ( the front sail , don't know if it s the same name in english ) , we can see a drunk old captain near another cavern ( with a bed and a table inside, but the picture is one more time too dark, I ll post it tomorrow ^^ )
Posted Image

another view of the front, with 2 monkeys fighting on the tree ( the 2 others sheets of the tree are broken :/ they are on the mountain on the other side of the river. )
Posted Image

another picture to show the interior of the house , with flash we can see the inside^^
Posted Image

a little fountain
Posted Image

yep I know the windows are a little High, but I noticed it after placing the minifig inside.. the inside is full of things, but we can't see it on these pictures, I'll post it tomorrow too ^^
Posted Image

another picture with flash
Posted Image

and the last one, I tried to take the interior

full pics HERE

As I said, I'll make better pictures tomorrow, my camera is low battery actually ( it's a old numeric camera, 2Mpixel :/ )

I like it! Espesially the silly pirate who spilled the treasure everywhere. Great Job!

Very nicely done;  that cannon is a gem.  The setting has a distinct Atlantic coast feel...

Very nicely done.  I like the two toned building.  With warehouses like these, you want the windows high up to make it harder for others to steal your loot.  That cannon looks like it could blow a hole through anything.

Thanks Gen. Knowledge and Lt. Col. Thok

I like this canon too, but I had difficulty to make the rear wheels, if you look carefully they do not appear at the left of the canon, the wheel is hidden .

That's a pretty cool hideout, wish I had one of those.

Hey Guss,

The new pictures came out great.  There is a lot more detail without the overexposure from the flash.  Your "Little Hideout" isn't very little is it?  :pir-classic: If I had one suggestion, it would be to change the wheels on your cannon.  Maybe if you used wagon wheels that matches the cannon barrel in color.  The wheels on there now look a little too modern.  Another thing you could do is take off the tread and let it roll on it's rims, or don't change it at all...  Either way, great job.

hum sorry, i'll stop now, I promise..


for the wheels of the canon, I do not have other wheels unfortunately , the only one of this size I have are yellow or whites or grey like this one, and I wanted it to have 4 wheels ( don't ask me why ... it was a whim ^^

Ahhhh Guss,  I've somehow missed your Little Hidout - was that supposed to be spelled "Hideout"?

You've used that Castle river baseplate haven't you?  I've always wondered how it would work in a Pirate MOC and you've answered that question nicely.

The only thing I'd suggest is more tropical jungle plants, but of course they're only option if you have them :pir-grin:

sadly I do not have more jungle plants^^ and the I didn't get this river baseplate in a castle set, but in the 6552 set, but it's surely the same baseplate.

I wanted to makes a little Hideout , but it turned to a kind of base ^^ a kind of warehouse maybe.
