Looks good so far Bonaparte! Can't wait to see how it turns out! Might I recommend adding an armoury, packed with muskets and gun powder? Might be a nice touch, but it's your MOC!

Quite a good idea to build something different then ships :grin:

I really like how similar the overall appearance is to the original set; very classic! The rock looks sound too. I'm curious to see this progress.

This looks amazing! Are you predicting the redcoats to win the ToR? :laugh:

Me being picky, I still think you could add may items to the rock to make them less ugly. But other than that, I wish I could build something as amazing as this. Great job! :thumbup: :thumbup:

That's a good point. The rock needs more attention, I agree. That's on my to do list!

This is getting better and better! :classic: yes some more rock work would be nice, along with more dock, in my opinion.

Shame it's a redcoat fortress, but awesome job! :thumbup:

Nicely done!
Filling it with redcoats isn't exactly accurate to the original set I think :grin: .
I actually like the use of burps/lurps, nowadays people shoot me when I use those or raised baseplates, something about being lazy and not up to standards :wacko: .

The fort turned out accurate and functional. Photos are pleasant for a look.

P.S. More photo is necessary! :excited:

Very impressive fortress,with great attention to detail. :bonaparte:
I look forward to you expanding the fort more underground.
On a side note I would change that brown flag pole as it looks like a missile with a flag stuck on top.

I'm absolutely loving it! There is nothing better than the old classic style of Lego Pirates. Are you going to further develop / enlarge your island?

That's some great tribute to one of the true classics! The similarity is undeniable and all the details are great. Excellent job!

Do you have a more recent update including the improved rocks? I am very fond how your MOC is looking so similar in its appearance to the original set; you've captured that very well! :thumbup:
