MOC - Modernized Sabre Island

Recommended Posts

I would buy your Sabre Island. I only miss the big flag instead of the little one you used. Sabre Island was one of my first sets and it is still my favorite Lego set.

Agreed on all points.

I got Sabre Island as a kid along with the Caribbean Clipper as my first pirate sets.

I loved (and still do) the soldiers.

As far as the flag is concerned: I was going to add the big flag but wanted to be able to render the decoration using LDD to POV-Ray Converter.

But only the smaller flag let's you map images on it in LDD.

So, I sued that one.

Really awesome remake you have made. Nice.

Sabre island was my first pirate set also and an awesome set.

How would this look beside the two official sets?

This modern version looks good.

I'm really not a fan of the new palm trees. I think the new sets should come with something better.

Sorry for the delay.

... and here are some updated images on a single baseplate and with a rowboat - like the original 6265 - Sabre Island:

It suits perfect. I will try to build it, too. I think you will not have a instruction for your Moc?!?

I like it very much. It seems that Sabre Island has modernized.

Well done, the inclusion of the boat is a plus that make it more "set".

I must compliment you, I really like the idea of a musket on a clip better then a stud shooter for the rowboat that TLG uses.

I must say that I love it. Really well done. Is it possible to ask for an update were you swap your sabre island with the soldiers outpost? So that you combine the Sabre island with the fort?

Sure.

But I'll have to post it later - when I can find time to render it.

Now expand Soldiers' Fort as well : P

That is easy said than done.

I may try to do so, but that will have to wait...

This looks great.

You should be awarded the title 'Official Set Improver' pirate_satisfied.gif

One question regarding the rendering... could you please tell me where you found the templates for all the new accessories?
