Well, I didn't get any photos of this project and now it's destroyed, but the Flickr kids seem to like it so I figured I would post a thread here. All photos will be given credit to the photographer, of course I built the whole MOC (Pep did the dots around it after we put it on the display table). If you have some good detail photos to add please feel free to post them in the comments and I'll add them here.

Here's my island! It's got a few major areas from the book Lord of the Flies. Notably you'll see the main beach/lagoon, meeting rock, and clearing. I had originally wanted to do the whole island but did not request nearly enough space for it.

This island would be great for a pirate battle! I love the jungle, especially the use of the green bush on the tree. I haven't read the book, but I was inspired to by this build. Great job!

Aye - I just realized that this is a hommage to "Lord of the Flies"! I really do like the smooth curving of the beach and the transition from the sand to the jungle... a perfect part of a winning display  :pir_laugh2:

The landscaping itself really makes it for me, and great idea using the sumo wrestler torso for Piggy. What piece did you use for the pig's head?

What is the piece used as the Lord of the Flies head thing? And is that shell in Ralph's hand the head piece for the fish-man in the POTC set "The Mill"?
