Thanks for the encouraging words! The secret hatch has a rope (extra from the Queen Anne's Revenge) to pull it back up, and there is a jewel chest behind the door; forgot to get a photo.
Pretty bummed my mom gave away the majority of them when I was in my teens (used to have quite the epic collection of pirates and castles), but I am slowly rebuilding the collection. It's pretty funny; I see a lot of people in their mid to late twenties getting back into it. No more "pew pew pew" or "bang bang", but my brain desperately needs a creative outlet beyond my work place.
I just found some of the individual brick sites and my credit card felt it last night. Picked up a few thousand pieces of various things I need, as well as some Pick a Brick stuff before I realized you could buy it much cheaper. =( Learning.
Going to build a nice table in our game room and begin to put together a massive 3.5'x6' table. I'd like to do a huge MOC pirate setup over the next year. Got tons of space and need something to do with it, so the weekly LEGO budget has been created.
