Building a MOC and need suggestions

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I am going to get my hands on a 6267 lagoon lock up and a 6259 broadsides brig for 120 Canadian dollars, which compared to bricklink prices is great seeing as I can pick them up locally and don’t have to pay for shipping. I was thinking of building a moc around these two sets to enhance them a little, but am struggling for ideas, if anyone has some be free to tell me please! Thank you for your time

You could start with this most excellent recent entry.

Welcome to the forum :pir-huzzah2:

 

That is a great idea! I was thinking I might build a mountain with lagoon lock up at the bottom and broadsides brig at the top. And thanks for the welcome!

After building I can confirm they are not, although mostly small pieces already in my collection, there were about two 1x2 white bricks, two white 2x2 corner bricks, and sadly, the doors for lagoon lock up although I have just Baugh a set from bricklink. The mini figures are in alright shape although captain redbeard is very damaged, I can always buy one. The sail was frayed but not too badly and all the flags were intact. Overall I am very happy with my purchase! I could not get the pictures to work sorry.

This happens to new members, don't worry.

You can't upload images to Eurobricks forum by default, because there is too many members and little space on server.

Instead, you upload your work to the popular image hosting platform, like Flickr or BrickSafe. Have you got one of those? (Note: Instagram does not count in this matter).

Once you have them there, the rest is simple:

1. Go to your Flickr (BrickSafe) account and open one picture in the new tab.

2. Click view full size

3. Copy the url address: example on the picture

4. Paste the address, inside the post, and the system will automatically embed the picture inside the post.

The End

......

If you unsure, you can go to training ground for new members here-click and practice your posting pictures skills.

Hope this helps. :pir-thumb:

Now show us that mountain.

Thanks! That helps a lot, as for the mountain, after a quick parts check I don’t think I have the pieces, but for now I have connected the two sets together using a second smaller island print baseplate and it makes a pretty cool effect.
