Hello to all can't wait to see the nearly finished Island.
Two things definitely come later. A ruin church on the east end near the beach and a Pirateship of course!! :)
On Brickshelf are 30 pictures with lots of views and details.
Here are 16 of them, try to show all aspects of the whole islnd.
If it is to heavy, I will delete some of them.
Now its dark outside, but tomorrow I want to make some pictures of the detail opening on the left side of the mountain. In this you can see the tunnel down from the mine entrance to the cave.
counting office (the 3rd :) )
my second building for the island but the others are more favorite, the store
the captain above all
the harbor entrance with the huge landing fire
fisherman and his friend ;)
The mine entrance, the tunnel goes through the mountain down to the cave on the next picture.
cave with footbridge, lots of stalactites and stalacmites
and the beach on the northside

There is so much detail in all of your work!
I love the gallows, the fishermen, how nicely integrated everything is.
The cannon wall is simple, effective, and nicely done.
All it's missing now... ...is a shrubbery!
One that's nice, but not too expensive.

I have to say, that is one of the best executed ports I've ever seen, and I particularly like the signal fire in the harbor. Also, the way you've chosen to do stalagmites and stalactites is very cool, and surprisingly realistic for LEGO. Also, the noose is a realistic touch, but I doubt they'd leave the corpse in the sun like that (you could pull the "pirate" card here), as it would make for an awful smell.

The layout of the island kind of reminds me of this game I play occassionally... Curse of Monkey Island.
Well there are similairities but the islands are quite different.

This MOC makes me want to go disassemble a bunch of my MoCs and start over and build a new scene! I don't know if I could achieve something as convincing even though I might have the parts for it.
Well done indeed!

The buildings, the small details and the layout are simply great, the fisherman and the cave with all the detail inside being my favourites!
The only improvement i ccan think of is to make the water lower then the beach, as it would flood as it is now..
Better well stolen then badly thought up!
The build a frigate tutorail!

I could not wait to show you this project, a little bit soon as I can see know.
Here are the pictures from the westend and the open mountain to see the tunnel.
But I added waves in the bay and around the mountain before.
It really like this little detail, it looks so more organic.
Yep you are right. The one or another detail I recognized on other MOCs.
But this is not really surprising, if you search for really good pics online of a pirate hideout, a piratehouse, a port or anything in this way, you will find LEGO Mocs very fast.
For example, the 4 buildings pirate port from >Derfel Cardan<.
I found a little picture of this online and on the search for more, I finally landed here
@ Mister Phes
Is it really similar to the game? I never see or play this, but it sounds good to get new ideas
If you see little similarities to your MOCs, it could be
I found your pirate port on my search for inspiration and wow thats really amazing. The only thing I missed was the rest of it, the island for example. And at this point starts my work.
@ Joey Lock
That's exactly my point of view. My nephew is 5 now and startet this year with Lego. He is one reason I put back my old stuff, buy new one and build new creations.
He could play with it, but it is to heavy for him. He dares not to demolish something.
This is the westend with new little rock near the rock arch an the waves around.
The tunnel under the mountain opening. The pirates show the way the tunnel moves through the rock.
And at the end of it the cave with the landing bridge for smaller boats.
At least, the view on the upway behind the tavern ending in a quarter round stair to the captains house.
A little question on the edge. Is it possible to update the topic of this article, so everybody see that there is another update in?
