It was the year 1746, and the islanders were getting tired o the British colonizing them.
As the good fisherman they were, they started to train sharks to help them kick the red's asses.
Below you see a caption of such an event.
Needless to say is that the red's lost this one. :pir-grin:

This build gave me a chance to have a try at some realistic looking water.
I'm quite pleased with it, hope you like it too.

Very nice Rick!
I really like how you have presumably used 1x2 plates to raise the cheese wedge triangle shapes to give your ocean that wavy effect.
I really like this entry. The only thing that I could suggest to improve it is if you have a dark (black or brown) string as rigging on the boat. It just kinda seems wierd having the jib sail without any rope holding it up.
But very well done, and good luck in the contest!  :pir-classic:  :thumbup:

Lovely MOC Greenie. The water is some of the best I've ever seen; I'm jealous of your trans-blue cheese collection.

Good luck!

Looks perfect Captain Green Hair, I love how you did the water!
And the position of the shark and his master versus the soldier look so realistic!

Looks great CGH! Especially the water turned out very good! I've never seen this water technique somewhere before, I might try it myself too since this looks awesome. But then I need a huge load of transculent cheesies. :pir_laugh2:

The idea is nice as well, and the sails of the ship are (as always) cool.

A few more details on board would be nice. :thumbup:

Sail to My Brickshelf or to My MOCpages, or my Flickr Photostream!

I was planning on testing that technique, so i bought 300 blue and 100 white ones to do so.  
This contest just gave me the opportunity to test it, the MOC still sits on my shelf. :pir_laugh2:

your water technique = Amazing!
Raising the slopes in a random way really adds to the effect, seems to bring it to life, a lot more realistic -(Than having a random assorment of slopes on one level).

I am curious to if you have seen this used before on a MOC, and tried to recreate (which you have achieved well), or if you originated it?

I remember seeing it on BS somewhere, but that was all 1 level. I added the plates to make higher waves.

The thread is over a year old, please don't bump old threads to ask a rhetorical question.  Apparently the picture has ben taken down and a new one has taken its place. Its not worth bumping an old thread just to complain that the picture is gone.

Brickstarrunner, I would advise you not to bump old topics without a good reason. If you want to bring our attention to something like this, just send us, or the MOCer, a PM.

Thanks. :pir-classic:
