Hello together,

when I was a child I loved the Lego Pirates audio dramas. I got all from my parents. A few weeks ago me and my wife bought a house an I had to work there for month. At this time I heard the cassettes again while paperhanging. While I did that I remembered that I always want to build the "cannonball" the flagship of Governor Broadside. Now I am able to do that.

My attention was to build a ship like the Car. Clipper in big :). The ship should have all attributes of the car. clipper but more powerful than the imp. flagship.
I hope you like my ship.

The sets in the background are not part of my moc :) I have only to low space in my Lego room.

Thank you very much. I worked on it for a week, but only 2 hours a day. I knew what I want to do, therefore I bought 2 Car. Clippers before starting this. Therefore I had many bricks I needed on my table and must not search so often in my boxes :).

Great idea to upsize the Caribbean Clipper. That's an impressive armament, too.

Thanks a lot.

Refering to your question:

You must deeplink your pictures. There is a little help somewhere in this forum, where you can learn how to do that with Flickr.

Old fool!' he said. 'Old fool! This is my hour. Do you not know Death when you see it? Die now and curse on vain!' And with that he lifted high his sword and flames ran down the blade.

Good MOC, even if this it's much bigger that the Caribbean Clipper, easily can be it's eldest brother...

I'm looking forward to see that diorama that you mentioned :wink: .

Friendly,
