Hi all (I apologize in advance for my not So perfect english)

This is my Pirate display. I had it with me at the Klodsfest 2013 event
(Klodsfest is an yearly event made by my LUG Byggepladen, Denmark)
Klodsfest is made so everyone within our LUG, has a chance to display their stuff.
To an living audience, and ofcourse the other members aswell.

150 Byggepladen members did attend this year, and nearly 700 Paying! visitors (Whitch is a new record for us)  (including kjeld kirk kristiansen Owner of LEGO)

This is the 5'th time I'm exhibiting my pirate stuff. My personal goal is to add atleast one new item to my Display, each and every single time i exhibit.

I'ts nearly a year since i started to display my stuff in puplic.
First time was at the klodsfest 2012. I had only 2 smaller ships with me at the time. Since then, I've expanded my layout massively.

The ships name's is:

Crusader (The Extremely supersized 2'rate ship of the line)
Grim Reaper (The Black ship)
Golden Whale (Automatic cannons)
Landlubber (The tan and blue ship. Its also Remote controlled) As you can see in the video at the bottom.




And without further delay, i give you my pictures. (The text for each picture is located beneath it)

Here we have some real Pirate monkey's, Drfting away with alot of treasure.
Eventhough, one of the Cannon-men aboard the Crusader, won't allow them to get away with it.


Posted Image

The Crusader in all her firce glory. Shooting at all three pirate ships at once.
The whole bow is rock solid (and quite heavy) SNOT all the way up to the forecastle.

Personly i love how thoose stair's turned out

Notice the SwirilGun pokeing out of the rigging
(she have 12 of them in total)
If you count the SwirilGuns together with the main batteries, she has a total of 89 cannons. (she can carry 90, if you put an extra cannon in the forecastle)

This is my lighthouse.....Or rather what's left of it.  
When i packed my stuff for the event, i tried to put it into a box.
Unfortunately, the box had the exact same messurement as the plate. when i tried to squeese it gently into the box.
That resulted in the lighthouse jumped off the plate, smashed down into the box. and completely destroyed itself.  
Only the top pylon survived.....Sort of.
I promise you it will be posted once i rebuild it.

This ship is not mine. I did the layout together with another guy, who had this ship, and a mountain next to it. With a cave hidden within

Not everybody got what it takes to be a sailor

For some strange reason, i didn't take a single shot of the battle at the middle of the ship, nore the bow/forecastle
(there is a video in the end of this post, in it you can see the cannon's in action.

Perhaps you can recognize this fellow ??

Eventhough there is three longboats with many soilders aboard, they are no match for the three-headed Sea Serpent

I had a funny treasure hunt-mini event-thing going on.
I had a sign at the table that said: Help the pirates find the burning pumpkin: Originaly i hid it within the lighthouse,
with that option out of the window. i had to think fast.
That resulted the pumpkin was hidden within the jaws of death.


Posted Image



Posted Image

Can you find the treasure ??

Posted Image

To be honest, i didn't made this island entirely myself.
i had the basic isle with me, complete with map. But i had to make the vegetation on sight.
I didn't had the time to make it, so i made a boy who was bored make it for me.
I simply just gave him a box with Chima-Figs and another with plants, and he sat off to work
( i did supervise him, told him what to do, and where to place that and that.
But he managed most of it by himself.
I rewarded him with a Chima fig of he's choice, he chose one of the wolf's,
since it's the only fig he didn't have already.
He was quite happy  about it.

Sebeus and I, is tracking down the lost treasure's. thank god we have a map. Or else we would never find it.

This is the landlubber, its Remote-Controlled. It have the ability to sail around on land. i'm reciving alot of feedback at that feature, usualy its : A driving ship, that's new:
Now for a funny story . I almost rammmed into Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen on purpose.
Simply to get he's attention. He looked at a enormus resturant build like a pendhouse . (it was truely brilliant) Together with alot of people.
After sailing right behind him, for some time. Before Somebody noticed me and said: WOW look at that thing:
Kjeld turned around (together with everyone else) and glazed upon my ship.
Kjeld laughed, complimented my brilliance, and said: A driving ship, thats just amazing.
I replied : You should make some of theese:
Kjeld made a small laugh and said: .yea... We have do that.
After that small conversation, Kjeld just starred at my ship, until i was gone.
Who know's, perhaps Lego will make some remote controlled ships one day =)


Posted Image

The thing I'm most proud of, is the cabin (besides the RC ability)

Because i made it in a rush, the parts kept falling off. as you can see in the pictures. At the end i was sick and tired of reasembling it. and just left it be.

I capsized with her once, i tried to make it across a small trench, i failed.
Funny enough the first attempt went extremely well, but second time, not so well.



Posted Image

I've dismantled the landlubber. Mark II is well under way. She's stronger, taller ,tougher, and much better reinforced.

Posted Image



Posted Image

My personal favorite. the Grim Reaper.
She contains full interior with bunks and a captains cabin.
i've spend just about 300 hours creating her.
(if you count mark I, in the progress. whitch is the right thing to do in this case, since its based so much on mark I, just alot better.
She's been at every single Lego event I've taken aprt in.
She's over a year old, and contain 15% of my black bricks.
I just love her so much that i cant dismantle her.

Posted Image

She have no special abilities. Besides for the evil look

This is me, setting it all up



The video's is not shot by me. they are shot by a fellow AFOL from my LUG,
She made alot of video's of the whole event.

Nice, I love the sea monster (the new add?) and the little Island scene, X marks the spot.
Overall it's a very fine layout, considering you had to do it alone, maybe you can team up with someone for the next event (if you can find someone interested in building Pirates), more builders make a bigger layout :wink: .

I did actualy team up with a guy, kinda. he had tiny pirate mountain with a cave, and a small ship (the small black'ish one)

And regarding my monsters, yes they are the new add. both of them. Including my fantastic lighthouse.....unfortunatly it felt off the plate it was standing on and smashed into 3256 pieces. Only the some of the top survived.

By the way. Have you found yourself yet ??
Becuase you are in there =)

My favorite parts are the Grim Reaper (although all the ships are gorgeous), the pirate puking on the dingy, the sea-monsters (clever use of a hull for the black one) and the island (X marks the spot!)

That's an impressive setup you have created! You truly have your own style in ships, which makes them really stand out. I love the idea of the PF powered ship, I migh have a go at one before my next event. :grin:
Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

The build a frigate tutorail!

And trust me, its way more easy then you think to create a PF Powered ship.

This is so very magnificent I can only describe it using one word; Awesome. I won't even go into everything I like about this. There's just way to much. Very detailed, and the size of the"Crusader?" A full 2nd rate in Lego? Wow.... Great work man! :pir-blush:

This is incredible! I especially love the big red X on the island and the sea monster made of ship hull segments. The ships are awesome - the Crusader is possibly the largest LEGO ship I have ever seen, and fully equipped with cannons to boot. Truly spectacular, mate.

Holy crap, dude!  That orange ship is HUGE!

I like how you have stained glass windows on your ships, I think that's a nice touch that you don't see very often.

If Lego had kept the bluecoats, people would still be buying Pirate sets.

The crusader alone, contains about 7563+ pieces
all in all, i think there is 15000+ pieces.
And for the black sea monster, it actualy started as a ship-wreck. Then all of a sudden, i had a giant shark'ish monster

Thanks thanks and thanks again.
the X island was a last minute idea. I simply couldn't resist, makeing something compltely obvious (eventhough, there was alot of people, who couldn't see what it was, before they were told. (mainly adult visitors)

I love the stained glass aswell. it fits extremely well, within the pirate theme.
