Nice MOC Swash Buckler! Great that you can seperate it in different baseplates.
The redcoat in the well is also quite funny :pir-laugh: And I like all the animals and other small stuff.
Maybe you could add some barrels, and birds on the roofs, though it's quite crowded already.
Anyway, Good job :thumbup:

This is a very fun MOC.  I think the use SOT (as apposed to SNOT) really gives it a classic flair.  The blue coat in the well is a nice gag and there is a lot of detail to book.  My only recommendation would be to say that interiors to the buildings would be nice.

Great MOC! :thumbup: All the little details look good, and the houses do to. :pir-classic:  Being able to split it into parts is a nice way to build, I should try it sometime.

My sources believe that that was a Bluecoat, but he got his coat covered in his blood, resulting in it turning red.

My congratulations, this is a very nice creation. :thumbup:
Yes the attention to detail is good and you've created quite a crowded port that is displayed in the film.
On the topic of the redcoat down the well...
Ahem well we'll end it there.
I wasn't finished though!
Exactly. :pir-wink:

Excellent MOC! I want to vacation there! The details and colors are great. The modular design are a great way to build this large scale creation and see all the cool nooks and crannies you built into it. I love it! Great job.

An amazing MOC! Crowded and cramped like the real Tortuga should be. Nice details and overall a very good looking town! :thumbup:

Wow, that is really impressive.  I like how you kept the individual pieces separate.  It really makes viewing each piece easy.

Great job!

I really like this type of moc's, crowded on a small place gives it more to the details. Beautiful

These were not official sets. What he means is that he made his own modular sets that form together to make this. This is a year old though, so you shouldn't really bump it.

No you can't, the thread is a year old and the thread starter has been banned, so I doubt he'll be responding.
