[MOC] The Skull Eye

Recommended Posts

I had already announced it, I am currently working on a new edition of the 6286 ship, the Skull Eye Schooner.
(Even if the ship is not actually a schooner)

I'm still designing it with the studio program.

Here I have the first pictures:


For the amidships, I used the Barracuda as a guide.


Here is a comparison of the old figurehead to the new one!
I am extremely satisfied with the result!


Since this mast is unfortunately not available in the studio program, I had to create a dummy.^^


Now "only" the rear is missing. :pir_laugh2:

Actually, the ship hast 173 building steps^^

Excellent idea!

And is coming around very good! :pirate:

I can't wait to see the final result.

Do you plan you share the Studio file?

I'm finally done!

I still have to order a few parts via BrickLink.
When they are still here, then I can build the Ship!

Then you also get the final pictures!

In the end there were exactly 500 building steps ^^

I'm still missing some bricks.
There are a total of 7 BrickLink orders - of which 5 have already arrived today.
Hopefully the other two will come tomorrow, because then I can start building on Sunday ^^

The Skull Eyes Schooner is by far my favorite set from Lego.
I also don’t remember in which year I got it.
But an estimated 22-25 years ago, I would say.

In order to say goodbye to this old friend (before he is reborn in the form of the reaper), I made up a little ministory.
But I did not make the greatest effort.
I think I would have made up a whole story earlier, 20 years ago. ^^

Something would have happened, like, the Skull Eye is in the Caribbean when the Navy suddenly appears.


Panic spreads ...


A battle ensues, but the pirates are outnumbered ...


But then an allied ship comes to the reinforcement!


And together they defeat the enemy and start a big celebration!


Unfortunately, the Skull Eye didn't survive the battle!


Fortunately, the Allies have a capable shipbuilder and the Reaper is bored ^^



Something like that ~

I also renewed the crew!
Although I have kept some figures.

There are also 3 officers, with the middle one setting the tone.


It's amazing how the print quality of the characters has changed in the 30 years!
At the time, I didn't care that Lego had given the characters names.
I knew his name was Captain Redbeard, but I never called him that.
Just see his hand!
It's Captain Hook! End of discussion ^^
The guy to his right was Smee.


Well, if everything works out, you'll get the final pictures in the course of the next week!

Thank you!

The rear is gradually taking shape!


It reminds me a lof of the new Barracuda, but as I have never seen the old Skull Eye, I might not see the connection to it.

I thin k this looks as a great update! The comparison shots show how much you managed to improve on the original! I specialy like the new bow section with its fore castle. And the extra layer for the midships deck gives the whole ship a better line (stern less 'sticking out and up').

Thank you all for the positive feedback! :pir-huzzah2:

In the studio program, the Ship-Parts are unfortunately quite buggy.
You can't align the bricks properly.
I always had to create a few auxiliary constructions :pir_laugh2:
