Hi all!
Since the end of my Dark Age, one year and a half ago, I have worked on my first big creation: yes, another Black Pearl!
My work finished ten days ago, just in time for ItLUG Lecco 2014, and now I am here to present you my creation!

Very well done. I'm glad to see another creation of the BP. I've been wanting to do this myself, but I can't afford extra black bottom hull pieces. They are ridiculous on bricklink right now.

But this is definitely something for me to look at for inspiration if I ever get around to it.

Thanks for sharing.

Excellent job on making an instantly recognizable ship. Although I don't believe the movie version of the ship had any grey on the hull, I like the fact that you added it. Beyond making it a little unique, I think that it also makes the hull look a little more detailed.
In my opinion, your rigging and sails are simply superb. You did an excellent job making them look realistic, and I can only imagine how long it took.

I too am interested in the material you used on the sails.

If this is your first creation post dark-ages, then I can't wait to see your next project!

You know how much I love your work. It's just a great MOC!

I wonder how many hours you spent in making all the ropes...

You can find some step of my work on the rigging in the WIP gallery.
I tried different materials and then I decided to use different sizes of yarns of wooden model ship. I followed the bible of model ship: "Rigging - Period ship models" by Lennarth Petersson.

How many hours? Too many...

I too am interested in the material you used on the sails.

Nothing special for the sails: only 1 EUR of common material easy to find in local shops.
I'm proud of the result but this kind of textile is not easy to sew. My mother did a wonderful job! Posted Image

I put at the sides of the sails some iron wire to give them the right curve.

Awesome ship! The shape, sails and rigging are really spot on. I like the touch of gray you put into the black pearl... it emphazises details and gives somehow a variety to the black parts.
And your mother did an awesome job on the sails, my compliments to her! And I am glad to see the 'iron wire-technique' put to use in this ship as well!

Very nice job! So many detail! Though, the bow part is used from the original set. I actually prefer like this:

She has a sleek hull, I like it.
The part I like the least is the bow, ironically it has much resemblance with the original set, this ship would really be complete with some proper headrails,
I hope you consider adding those Posted Image .
Keep it up!

Amazing work! She looks beautiful. she seems very realistic, I like that. The rigging and sails are great.
Considering the black colour of your ship, A little bit more light would have been useful to better see the details. But I know it's difficult.
The "Petersson" seems to be a interesting textbook, thank you for sharing.
