Would have been an entry for JRC: II, but since I can't enter its a pseudo entry. A remake of 6227 Imperial Trading Post. I'm happy with how all the details turned out.

Sorry for the shoddy photography too. Hopefully it'll last long enough until the snow and crappy weather goes away.  :pir_bawling:

Great job! I think that it is a huge improvement over the original.  :pir-wink:

Nice one. I saw it on Flickr a few days ago and just waited for it to be presented here on Eurobricks.
Beside the not working Brickshelf folder it looks very well build. I really like your style. So clean but detaild and realistic.

What else can I do than:

Great looking MOC.  You took a set beloved by all Lego pirate fans and made it even better.  I like the fact you kept the yellow ring at the bottom.  Many other great details.  My only complaint is that your link to the other pictures isn't working and I want to see more pictures of this beautiful creation.

This is really nice. I love how it's so colourful, and all the rock detailing is really good. Your link isn't working for me either, and I would love to see more pictures of this great creation. :pir-classic:

But from what I see in this picture, awesome work! :thumbup:

Beautiful. You retained the classic colors, but enhanced it with more parts and detals. Well done.  :thumbup:

This is crazy good :pir_wacko: You really gave this set a nice makeover while sticking true to its roots. It still has a strong resemblance of the actual set.
Thanks for sharing :thumbup:

I agree with everyone else. It's a nice MOC. Very classic, yet original and I like the waterfall, tower and used techniques.
Only too bad that the cannons seems a bit out of balance (I mean that the front isn't pointing upwards).
And why is there a fire in the building in the right corner? Because the boat goes into it?
Good job anyway :thumbup:

It's awesome! The tiled pontoon is great and the tower is realistic yet fits the old LEGO style, great improvements on a classic set.
