Hello everyone!

It's kind of crazy to think about it but it have been 2 years since my last pirate MOC was uploaded to this awesome forum. Of some strange reason I haven't built any pirate related stuff until a couple of weeks back when I woke up one morning and just felt that it was time, time to bring life to my beloved pirate collection. Best. Decision. So.Far.
The first place I went to was of course Classic Pirates for some inspiration, another great decison :pir_laugh2: After just 15 minutes of lurking around on the forum I was motivated enough to start the building process, and then I realized I had not decided what to build yet :pir_wacko:
After another fifteen minutes or so lurking around on Brickset I decided that I wantet to make the Eldorado Fortress!

I had a blast putting it together. Especially since it uses a bunch of different colors that I'am not used to use in MOCs. Neither could I use many modern technics since I wanted to keep the classic feel of it.

Awesome remake to one of my favorite sets! I like the new base plate!

Go to Classic-Pirates.com

A nice clean build, I loved the original set as well but I never had it...yet, I like how you rounded the small battlements platform with the cannon.

Nice build.  Saw it on MOCPages.  Was wondering if it was going to show up here.  :classic:

Great work.  I was actually thinking of doing something similar a while back, but decided on other projects.  I think your interpretation is fantastic and pays homage to the original set while bringing modern building techniques to it.

I would still love to see you do one aswell! It would be really fun to compare two custom models of the same set!
Thanks!

Very good - and old favourite set of mine (luckily I was able to build it once I got hold of the baseplate) - and this is the appropriate 2014 version!
Yours,
