Lagoon MOC-up: version 1.99
Posted 21 February 2013 - 10:26 PM
One thing I never experimented with much while I was a kid was building my own versions of sets. Either I would feel that it wouldn't be as good as the original set, or I just wasn't in the mood to build something other than the set as intended.
But I decided to give it a shot with my daughter and we rebuilt Lagoon Lock-up using only pieces from that set into I think a pretty cool alternate build.
There are many architectural similarities between this and the original - notably the awning (because who can see breaking that up?) and the big arch that is made by the two half arch pieces. I also put a boat that had came with one of the auctions I purchased (with gray seats I also made from spare parts) onto the set.
The tavern is now basically a nice fortified area with the cannon at the end of the path. The table for drinks is at the corner, and a spare musket sits on the wall just in case.
I do wish I had more firing cannons
The jail is now on the top floor to dissuade Redbeard and his minions from freeing any prisoners.
I don't think it's bad for my first real attempt at an alternate build. It's a new look at a great set.
And yeah I know that as far as what I have seen in this forum, this pales in comparison. You guys are amazing at what you do :D
Thanks for looking!

Props for building with your daughter!
You've fallen for one of the classic Blunders! the most famous of which is never get involved in a land war in Asia, but only slightly less well-known is this, Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!!!
