Well, this is FANTASTIC.

My advise:
1) You SHOULD have made a spoof account and entered the competition with it ! :pir-wink:

2) Where are all of the staff sigfigs? We, the non-staff members, want to see how you guys slaughter yourselves !

3) You need at least 1 million pictures to be eligible to enter, and you don't fulfull some of the other "staff-entries" requirements either !
SHOW US THE OTHER 999.999 pics at once ! :angry:


Question:

HOW long did this take you ???
You must have been building this before the staff competition was announced ?
It would take me weeks (or at least a few complete days).

Absolutely magnificent.
The more I look, the more I discover.
The roofs made of hands and swimfeet are amazing.
I love the splash from the cannonball hitting the water.
It's all just so complete and superbly designed.
Thanks for showing me this :pir-sweet:

Is that lady jumping out of the window without her child?
And is that a pirate in a barrel?

Must stop looking and go to bed now.

Wow, that's a great MOC for sure!
A lot of interesting techniques are shown. I especially like the swim feet roof! I wish I had that many so I could try that.
And the way you have placed the rifle and knife to make a bayonet in the 4th picture. Amazing!

WOW!!!!

Incredible work.  You should have a big cheese eatin' grin on your face right now buddy!  This is great.  I was kinda lookin' forward to seein Hinckley smacked around if this is your staff entry for PTV.  If it isn't, then it is still an amazing creation.  Too many great details to list off.

I love the way you creatively made the splash in the water! Brilliant!
Plus the smoke coming from the Weapons and the Bull was very nice!  :thumbup:

Your kidding me right? This is amazing. I really like how you made the tiles on the roof out of flippers. Smart thinking.

Question
How long did this take you to make?

Especially the roof tiles made of swim flippers are awesome, and the cannonball splashes into the water near the row boat, the sheep, the baby and, and...

Tempting...but then again, I do have a rather unique style, and the thatched roof would probably have given it away :pir-sad2:

It would take me weeks (or at least a few complete days).
I was building this for 2.5 weeks, but I've been waiting on a BL order (guess what :pir-grin: ) for a week or so since then.

It's actually quite cheap (relatively speaking), compared to other "advanced" roof techniques (like the thatch). It cost about $7 for the whole roof shown, and there aren't any special pieces required other than that.

Your roofing techniques are fantastic.  Any chance we could get a tutorial, or at least some close in pictures of the two?
