Royal Port, Pirates Style
Posted 14 July 2004 - 06:23 PM
Now, its the very first real non-sci-fi minifig scale creation i made for a long, long time...
its an imperial port, very similar to my beloved Imperial Trading Post, actually this set was the inspiration for it... ;)
its not finished yet, i've still to add many details (e.g. minifigs, barrels, chests, plants, and so on...)
and i'm thinking about buying more white and yellow bricks and some burps at bricklink, and expanding it... but thats only a "maybe", cause its already very large... ;) its size is 80 x 48 studs, and allmost everything (except the water and all the things directly at the water...) is raised to a high of 6 or more bricks...
but here a picture:
you can see, that the whole thing is cutted out, e.g. the large house with the tower at the left side has only one half...
there is a small bridge in the front that can be opened, but there is a mechanism for it still missing, that will be changed the next days.
if i get more stones, i will replace this bridge and the grey tower, because i made them both before deciding that i will make all buildings yellow-white.... so now they doesn't fit to the rest of it... :(
this is the way i would like to build the whole bridge....
and here you can see a little cave that i included, there will be stored some chests or barrels in it... ;) or maybe it will be an monkey-home... ;)
this is the back of the larger house, you see, there isn't really much place in it... ;)
now, the pictures you saw weren't exactly what the whole model is at this moment looking like, i just added some plants, palm trees, a few barrels, animals (monkeys and birds and such little things)...
here are the gallerys:
First day of building
Pictures i made after the second day
so enjoy and please say me what think!!! ;)

That is a great change from all your other mocs, not that they are bad but change is always good! :D
It looks really good, and very big. I love how you have added lots of little details in to make it look better.
Have you finished it yet? I would like to see how it looks once everything is finished.
Maybe you could do a diorama? Perhaps with a pirate ship and so.
Nice work as usual Apo, I enjoy seeing what you make!

no, it's not finished yet, i used the spare time i had the last times to work (wallpapering.... uh.....) and to build an alternate model from my at-at for at-ats contest... ;)
but i will finish it soon.... and maybe i will expand it soon, too !!!! :D
i tried to make a pirate ship (a small one), but i'm not good at building (swimming) ships from my imagination.... i've just no idea, how the look in reality... ;) but i will include some boats (maybe an islander boat... ;)) and such things....

If worse comes to worse you could get a... a... Jack Stone set and destroy the figures but keep the boat, I dunno if it would be right but its just an idea... on second thoughts its a bad one.

It seems much easier than making a boat from scratch, if that is what you are doing.
