Cheers guys, thanks for the Blogging too Skally. It feels good to build Pirates again, its been awhile since Carat's 4 Carrots. I love the colour schemes islands let you use.

Great work ISC,
I really like this small island with that big volcano. The water/beach transition looks really nice.
Is there a reason why you didn't use the palm trunk pieces? But your substituted trunks look great as a alternative way to build palm trees.
And because this is such a small island I am missing some islanders canoes which would make it even better.
All the mini figs and animals really depict the chaos created by the volcano. Well done.
I chose not to do any Islander canoes as I have built them before for Carat's 4 Carrots. Whilst the canoe is small they require a bit of real estate to make the MOC still balanced.
As for the palm trees I prefer to use the 1x1 cones and bricks as they are more versatile than trunk pieces and more readily available. Just take some flex-tube and you can bend the palms any way you like. I always look for a nicer more difficult way to do things
