Well i have got the pirate building bug again. This is the pirates hideout on a rocky coast. The old hanging tree is the landmark they lookout for to find this spot.

I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.

Nice scene. All the foliage makes it lively and green. The hut is nicely done, but may be a little small. One suggestion though: the hanging tree may be a better hanging tree when you let is hang over the water some more, right on the edge of that rock. It's a bit too straight for my taste.

Nice work using a variety of differently shaped trees. Makes the whole scene more realistic of a untouched wilderness.

Nice house (with those pillars), the ship's wheel is also a nice add to give it a more pirate-look. Like some other people said there are some interesting trees in it as well.

I like it! Makes you wonder what could be in or beyond the dense forest of the island. Well done!

It is not a harmful disease or something. :pir_laugh2:

Nice MOC you've made there! I like the water and the cliffs a lot. :thumbup:
The foliage is nice as well, but I think the building is rather small, it looks comfy though. :pir-classic:
Overall you have done a nice job building this.

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

This is awesome! I really like all the details on the island. The rocks and cabin look really great!

Wowza! I am just starting to embark on a similar Western MOC, and this is a great source of inspiration!
The rock scaping is top-notch, and the wooden building really well integrated. :thumbup:
The vegetation adds a lot to this MOC, rather than cluttering it up which can sometimes be the case.

I would only recommend using trans cheese slopes instead of tiles for the waves, tp give it a more natural look.

To the barricades!

I saw this on MOC pages the other day.  Great work, as Sly Owl said, the building is well integrated.  ~LW 8~

I know mods don't like single word comments but if everything is said, I just can say that I agree and find it lovely.

Respect all Lego bricks !!!

If you see the skeleton in chain hanging from the limb of the tree... That I do think, is why its called "Hanging" Tree...  :pir_laugh2:  


Nice MOC!  :pir-classic:  :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:     for you.  :pir-laugh:

I got that, but you could make it a 'double' hanging tree... often the trees right on the edge of the rocks hang over, so it would look even more natural.
