Creator Pirate Ship (31109) Sail MOD

Recommended Posts

Hi

I recently bought the new Creator 3-in-1 Pirate Ship (31109) and found it a really enjoyable build and a nice looking model but the sails bugged me. I don't mind them being brick built but the foresail and rearmost sail just didn't look right so I had a go at creating a furled look (it's very basic but I didn't want to have to change the masts/yards.)

The foresail is my favourite bit... I used the spare bit of rigging to try and make it look a bit more realistic.

The rearmost sail (mizzen sail?) was the one that bugged me the most as the original triangle shape just didn't seem to look right/make sense (not that I'm any sort of sail/rigging expert!) so I've reimagined it as a gaff-rigged sail.

Overall I'm pretty pleased with the result - the ship is now in my Lego town harbour as a tourist attraction/floating museum! (it has a made up history and back story but I'll leave that for another day!)

Thanks for looking - comments are very welcome!

Much better result! I wonder if it will work with the sails from 21322.

Also. I'd be happier if this was in the Pirates theme...

Better! Now someone needs to mod out the weird non matching plates sticking out and too many colors on the interior paltes and it'll look very tasteful :)
