That is an epic diorama there!

The waves, the town, the fort, and the islanders and the ships are all great.

Excellent job here :pir-classic:

How long did it take you to make??

Nice MOC Unitron6991, you did an excellent job on the shores/land :thumbup:
The fort is probably my favorite part.

That turned out really nice. The fort (aren't those stairs leading into the fort a little unprotected?) and the lighthouse are really nice and the water effect is cool too. On the Islander side, the specialized baseplates are really well integrated in the layout.

@ImperialScouts

Really don't know have long it took to make. It took several weeks to plan, but that was doing two other displays and homework.

Thanks for all your comments!
I guess I better post Town and Space...

Wow, what's the story on doing such an interesting display? Were you asked to do this by someone? Is it in association with a LUG and/or a special event? What are on the paper clippings on the side panels?

I like the background painting(?) It really makes the display come alive.

I was invited after the Capitol Historian saw my display at the Pine Bluff train show last April. There really isn't a LUG except I like to call myself RockLug. The background was not my idea. I think it could have been a little different. :pir-hmpf_bad: The paper clippings are old LEGO ads from the 60's that the Historian printed off of Brickfetish.com I believe.

What a great scene you have created! A nice mix of pirate, soldiers and islanders. Both islands are very eye catching with some great detail, but the thing that stands out most to me are the waves. Very simple, yet very effective! Great work :pir-classic:

Congratulations!  Your port is a great success.  It turned out very nice with lots of nice elements.  I like all the space you left for the water.  Great job.

I really like your port! I love building ports myself. This spring Im going to take my apart and rebuild it. I might change my fort in the front as well. I thought about the "two-sided" display like you have, but I just don't have the room for it. I want to eventually make a red vs blue with two ports on each side and a ship battle in the middle.
