Found this forum a few weeks back while looking for inspiration. I'm on a bit of a pirate/medieval kick at the moment and I thinking that now I've found this place I might stick around :-)
My first model up for viewing, is Brickbeard's Bounty II
I used two Brickbeard's Bounty's, Shipwreck Hideout and some other bits and pieces. I based it partly on the IFS but made some significant changes.
I built a larger cabin that includes access to the lower decks via staircase and also provides a space for the crew.
Then for the lower deck I had a galley, some under the stairs storage and then the gun ports. Due to the additions I had to cut down on the number of gun ports :-/
At the far end, I had a prison cell and the anchor winch mechanism.
This was my first proper attempt at a MOC ship, and having seen some of the ships created by others I've been inspired to make modifications. So I'm going to rebuild from scratch and take a bit more time over it I think.
Comments are welcome :-)

I do like it, but I feel I can make it better, so it'll be a pile of bricks soon. I just spent the evening sorting out a load of other bricks to use with the rebuild.

Brickbeard's Bounty II still proved to be no match for the well trained Imperial's and their flagship.

(one of these days I'll get around to sorting my lego out so that I can create better scenes to go with the models)
