Hi all,

  I am a new member here at EB but have read it for many years.  I am sharing here a MOC of mine that I completed and uploaded to the Ideas site a year ago, the "Modular Island Fortress" (as of posting, it has over 100 days left).  I love pirates and bluecoats, and I wanted to create a fort for my soldiers to call home.  This one sits atop a rocky island sticking out of the sea with carved steps to the door.  Its construction is modular not just in separating floors but also removeable walls as I hope to use this as a set for a stop motion film someday.

  On the ground floor are two cannons and a heavy wooden door.  There are small holes in the walls for troops to fire through with muskets.  The curved wall I made simply with hinge bricks.  A hatch opens up allowing soldiers to descend by ladder into the hollowed out cellar in the rock.  Stairs lead from the ground floor to the one above, where troops walk a small hallway including the door to the commander's quarters before emerging into the open air on the fortress roof.  There are two swiveling cannons and a flagpole.

I hope you enjoy!  More pics on Ideas and my Flickr.
