Hi guys,

I'll try again to post some pics of the infamous "Flying Monkey" (1st attempt failed...):

It took me a while to find out how to finalize the ship. Then the idea to apply some monkey-driven design struck me.
And then it was easy :wink:

... and my children love it ...

... and I tried to invent some new cannons:

Next time I can give some insights into other monkey-driven MOCs.

Take care

That is an innovative cannon. I like the monkey on the back a lot. To me it seems to say, "Haha, we just stole all your gold and medicine, here's a taunting monkey."

That's a nice vessel, and a great looking cannon as well. :thumbup:
But your pictures are somewhat large, and therefore they need to be resized to a maximum of 800x600 pixels.

Just in order to avoid people with tablets or a slow internet connection encountering problems. Links to helpful tutorials about how-to can be found in my signature.

Already thanks!

Great looking vessel and the taunting Monkey on the stern is excellent!

The key brick for the cannon is something called:
Black Cylinder 1 x 5 1/2 with Handle
The rest is "ordinary".

Very nice! Good to see you finally got it up? Are those custom minifigures?

Yes, they are custom made "black coats". The decals are based on the redcoat designs (and they are not my creation).
