Modding the Barracuda thread

Ah, I understand. That is reasonable to keep in store for the future to resell.:pir-laugh:

 

Altough right now, at that price the Barracuda bay is at, it is a great price per part set and it may be that I will get a second copy later on just for the parts because I ordered parts from Bricklink from 3 different sellers and I don´t know but feels like that the price for parts on Bricklink has gone up since I last time bought parts a few years ago. Or am I wrong?

At the very least, I am waiting to see if there is continued availability after covid19 dies down, if it ever does.....

Assembling this model has made me realize something: I HATE building Lego. I like designing it; I live having it... I like showing it off. But I DESPISE building it.

I feel you. I'm kind on the same boat.

Not really hate building it... but definitely bored building, most of the times.

I finally got the rest of the tiles on Friday to finish this part of the project.  I also made a simple wood base for it, so that I could move it around easier.  Thank you to Robin_IV for the digital file to create the water look!

In addition to the obvious cool factor of the water, the faded sails are a really nice touch. 

I feel like with so much water, though, there should be something happening out there - a whale broaching, or a few sailors clinging to wreckage, or something. Not ludicrously cluttered, or anything - just a few visual cues to balance the chaos of the model.

Don't really want to blow my own horn, but make sure to check out these cloth sails OKBrickworks has produced from my digital drafts. It's Silent Mary-style sails both in the colours and the size of the new BSB!

Blowing one's own horn is absolutely appropiate when one creates such an awesome sails mod as you did. The fact that you also scaled them up in size is really great too!

Super stoked.....been trying to find this set for weeks without crazy mark up, to no avail. Finally lucked out this morning and got one off Bricklink for just a few dollars over MSRP. Cant wait to get it.
