The Port of Skull Island - 70411 / 70409 / 6240 MOD

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

This modular model was inspired by sets 70409 (Shipwreck Defense) and 70411 (Treasure Island) for this small pirate port, with a raft that was mostly taken from set 6240. (Kraken Atttackin') The model also features a crane from a Pirates of the Caribbean combination model called Port Royal, and a dual cannon turret inside a giant swiveling stone skull. (That dual cannon part was inspired by WWII-inspired movie "the Guns of Navarone")

The whole model comes apart into three sections:
- loading crane
- makeshift dock
- defense turret

The crane can spin around all 360 degrees.

This part of the make-shift dock can take "battle damage": the curved section under the cannon falls back a bit, as shown here.

The inside of the skull-shaped cannon turret features two guns and a telescope. This part forms most of the skull. This Ninjago part goes on top of the mast as the flag for my pirate's faction.

The raft features a sail inspired by Spongebob set 3817, (Flying Dutchman) and a body inspired by set 6240. (Kraken Atttackin')

 

The LDD file for the port ONLY is here.

If you are curious what ship calls Skull Island home, please see here for the topic (and LDD file!) on the three-masted frigate "The Terror". The port should be purchased around Christmas of this year!
