Hi all,

I'm late to the party, but I finally got this set for Christmas and once I built the "B model" ship I knew I wanted to do something with all the leftover island pieces.  If I'd seen this thread at the time I might have built one of the MOCs above instead, but I'm glad I spent the time to create my own!

I built a "Traders' Cay" with a working crane to hoist cargo from a rowboat.

Also features discreet treasure chest storage:

And a gem buried by an unfortunate prisoner:

The Soldier's Gem

It's fun to have an island side-build for the pirates to interact with.

More pics on my Flickr!  What do you think?

I didn't even think of that, awesome work!

Thanks!  It's a fun challenge to build something from the pieces of just one set.  But it's rare for a set to have such an awesome "B Model" that also leaves so many pieces for a cool side-build.

Hi everyone.

I just got this set as a birthday gift. This set looks amazing from the front. But I don't like how it looks from the back. So I bought another set, added a third island and also an extra section to the ship.

I added an elevated walkway between the original set and the third island. All the walkways are illuminated by lanterns.

I also added some sail lines to the ship.
