[WIP] The Yago (green and white pirate ship) - 21332 MOD with brick-built sails from 31109 - WIP

Recommended Posts

I'm still slowly working on this custom pirate ship, which is now named The Yago, which is named after my parents pet Nanday Conure.

Parts-wise, about 911 parts have been found out of the 1,480 used in the model as shown.

The stern of the ship, features the ship's wheel and flagpole for the ship's flag.

The ship is devoid of any major below-deck features, except for the eight firing cannons. The only place there is any real furniture is the captain's cabin and that consists of a simple table and chair to save costs.

The ship can still split into three large pieces, as originally designed by LEGO.

I've been thinking long and hard about my pirate ship, and realized I didn't like it's original name. So, I looked around for inspiration. The green feathers of my parent's talkative pet bird, Yago, (actually a Nanday Conure we rescued 11 years ago) inspired me to name the ship "The Yago". I also tried to think of a bird shaped figure-head for the bowsprit, but failed to think of a good way of doing it.

You guys can also build you're own version of "The Yago" and the dock now that the LDD file is available here at my Bricksafe page.

NOTE: six parts are missing from the file:

Two of this 1 x 2 rounded-edge plate in black, for the rudder.

Four of this black part 1x1 bracket, near the bow.

There are some pieces placed next to the ship, which are for the rudder, above the amidships ladder on the sides, and for the bowsprit area.

 

What do you think of it? Any and all comments, questions, suggestions, and complaints are welcome! :pir-grin:

The remaining parts needed to build this pirate ship model (seen above) are now ordered, as of 5PM today, the 12th of January 2021.

I'm so excited, I'll finally have the pirate ship of my dreams! :pir-love:

I like the color scheme, but dislike the texture of the sails, which I think would look better without any tiles at the front. Also, I think the gaff sail is the wrong shape - looks like it was cut in half.

Thanks for commenting @Corydoras! I made the sails the way I did for strength... they would be way too weak without any frontal support. As for the sail, I couldn't think of a good shape, but then I remember a wooden ship model I had WAY back when I was 6. It had a sail similar to this... I think.

Also, I have news! I'm taking @Faladrin's lead with his similar model and one-upping it to include the entire skull rock, and a dock for my soon-to-be-built pirate ship!

(I got this image from Brickset, which I then shrank way down to fit my needs.)

The front clips of sets 71722 (Skull Sorcerer's Dungeons) connect to a wooden dock model (seen below). The two Ninjago set's (the other is 71717, Journey to the Skull Dungeons) will be modified to have blue parts instead of orange and trans-orange for the bases and "lava drip" parts. I plan on using these sets, plus this dock, in conjunction with my green 21332 MOD (with brick-built sails from 31109) pirate ship.

This model comes apart into three modular sections:
- The working wooden crane (left side)
- The corner with flagpole (middle section)
- The dock extension (right side)

Thoughts, comments, or complaints?

Thank you !

I'm glad to see I inspired you.

Due to some lack of free time, I am still working on the skull sorcerer dragon to figure it as a sea serpent to keep a more piratey style. :pir-grin:

I'm personally eyeing the Ninjago's lavender-skinned Islanders from this year to become denizens of the island-next-door to the skull rock I'm building, @Faladrin. (The totem pole heads and catamaran are just what I need to spice it up, and the teal dragon might work too.) I can't wait to see this all fleshed out!

I'd really like to see this evolving, for sure. Also, nice work on the ship!
