New News scout reporting for duty  :pir_laugh2:
I will look out for creations on mocpages in particular (which I was doing for a long time already actually)
As my first find, definitely not the least, I present to you one of the best in its genre.

Benjamin Kobold has surprised me with this amazing accurate replica of the famous Black Pearl.

This is the best lego Black Pearl I've seen so far and I've seen a lot, Benjamin has taken the right approach for this creation, there are almost no straight lines to start designing around.
The shape of the hull is very accurate to the real thing, though there might be some rough edges.

I particulary like the windows, most people use the simple arched windows (like the official set) when designing the cabin. Personally I find those completely out of place, the Black Pearl has these very elegant shaped windows and Benjamin respects that.
It might be bold to say this but this version actually reminds me a lot of my own version with the big difference that this one is much better.

Be sure to check out this fantastic ship at mocpages and leave a comment when you can.
This creations certainly deserves more attention  :pir-classic:

Nice find!
