[MOC] Dying Gull from POTC V

Recommended Posts

Hello there, finally I got some time and (a bit to much) sunlight to get some fotos of one of my finished projects:

The Dying Gull, commanded by the famous Captain Jack Sparrow on the search of Poseido´s trident in POTC Part V:

Here you can compare it with the "orignal":

I have to say that the idea to make my own MOC from this ship came by viewing a video from the very good MOCer MocYourBricks on youtube:

But I thought it could be improved by using the old mast parts, different hull line and for sure making some nice sails.

I included a working anchor, steering-mechanism and detachable storage lid as well as a brick-build cannon. Here are some more pictures, take a look at the flickr album to see all of them (give me a hint which is the best and I will add it here, dont want to flood the topic :D):

Hope you will enjoy it! Aye!

As weak as the fifth movie was (in my opinion), it did present some good vessels and this one was a nice change of pace, as we have seen mostly frigates in the series. Good MOD (or MOC, I can't really decide)! :thumbup:

True, the 5th movie was not the best, but better then the average movie I think... and it was POTC at least ;) I can agree that it looks more like a MOD as I have to admit I just startet the same way MocYourBricks did but I went for different approach for the hull. I left out the gunports but instead follow more accurately (in my opinion) the deck line with the rails and the window on the sides of the stern. My mast is also tilted backwards and I prefer the old masts due to a "cleaner" look to the new mast-pieces, 2x2 round bricks would have be to thick. You can see it in this sketch:

For the stern itself I went more for my imagination and equiped each lantern with a gull. It was my first try to build a small sloop which should look like a "real world model". When I see the sketch I forgot to add some gulls to the fotos! :pir-oh::parrot:

Now all that's missing is Gibbs, Marty and Scrum. Talking about Marty - I'm glad they brought him back in 5th movie, though I thought that he died with rest of the crew when Pearl was trapped by Blackbeard.
