    [MOC] Redcoats Outpost

    It's been a long time since I built my last MOC. But I received my BSB some days ago ( new fan of Lego Pirates here!) and havent any soldiers. I bought 4 redcoats and while they arrived I did this outpost. Most of the boats approach from the east, so it has a loophole on that side. Access to the upper part is via a wooden staircase inside (there is a wooden hatch door). The lower part is also used as a prison, in case of capturing a pirate. I hope you like it !

    Your First Pirate Set!

    Nice!! When i was child i only had legoland city sets (some technic and space too). I had (and i have almost all bricks) a little city with the mythical monorail. My return of the dark ages was with modulars (Green Grocer). I owned the Kraken attack some years ago, (while collecting modulars) and keeped it appart without letting it mix with the rest of the sets, like a little treasure. What I like most about this set are the minifigures. When i saw the BSB it was like , oh, i´m on modulars but , i love this!! This has been my start with pirates, the BSB has inspired me to make MOCs. Now every day I like pirates theme more!!

    Your First Pirate Set!

    Mine was the Kraken Attack 6240. I didnt have any pirates when i was a child, only legoland houses, cars,etc
  7. I have built this model from the pieces of the Creator 31037 set (supports and minifigure are excluded). It is a one-person fast transport that is also used to transport loads on its front. I know it is very improvable but the challenge was to build it only with the pieces of this set. I hope you like it! Full album and video here: https://flic.kr/s/aHsmMXfd9o

    [MOC] Redcoats Outpost

    Thanks! This is the first version I did, it has a more classic-pirates-style: Yes! I'm new to the pirates theme , i dont have imperial flags (only the pirates flags from BSB). The roof is inspired by that of the Palace Cinema.
  15. Classic Town Review: 6481 CONSTRUCTION CREW by Plate Hi all! Searching in the forum I realised that this set needed a review. This a set from my childhood, i played a lot with, and as I'm cleaning up and restoring all my classic old sets, decided to do this little review. I have no instruction booklet either box, they were lost :-(. So…lets go! SET NUMBER: 6481 NAME: Construction Crew THEME: Town SUBTHEME: Construction YEAR RELEASED: 1989 PIECES: 169 MINIFIGURES: 2 PACKAGING: Box EXTRAS: 9V lights elements Brickset: http://brickset.com/...nstruction-Crew PIECES The set has 169 pieces: Here you can see the hinge black pieces that allows the excavator to change direction( steering). Once i did the picture i realized that I forget the electric cable and some elements (turnable and some working tools): A nice bunch of tools! All parts are printed, no stickers (hurrah!!) MINIFIGURES 2 mini figures are included in the set: an excavator driver and a worker. The front torso of the driver has a classic town worker print and the front of the worker as a nice speedway symbol on it.Backs are not printed. These are road workers as you can guess. Classic air and red cap and classic minifig faces. CONSTRUCTION Easy step construction, as i mentioned, i don't have the original booklet, but i found the instructions here: http://lego.brickins...nstruction_Crew By clicking in the link you can see not only the instructions, but the features of the 9V light system. We start with the excavator: Finished model: Front and back views: Next we build the trailer: The electric cable goes under the battery box: Finished trailer: You can put some of the tools on the top of the trailer. And…finished model, trees and road plate are not included in the set. FEATURES The playability of this set is awesome! You can attach the trailer to the excavator or put it apart. Both the excavator and the trailer have directional features (steering), and both can turn. The trailer has a lot of tools including a pneumatic hammer. It has the light system, that can be combined, so you can take out the lights from the fences and put in the light bulbs. There are 3 light bulbs in the set. If you turn this piece you can change the feature from blinking to fixed light. The on-off feature works by pushing the grey piece on the battery box. RATING Build:9/10 Its an easy build with a little SNOT. Design:10/10 Price: I don't remember, but sure my parents paid it! Playability:10/10 Minifigures: 10/10 Parts:10/10 OVERALL: 100% Okay, i can't be objective here. Its a set with which I played a lot. If you have it, you know what I'm speaking of.Very very nice set.

    Best modular to buy

    Difficult choice! I have all them except CC, all are great. But i like FB very much, the building is very interesting and you learn some SNOT techniques. Enjoy!
