  1. Maybe it is downloaded automatically to your Downloads folder? Alternatively, try right-clicking on the link and choose "Save target as". That should open a Save or Download dialogue. Hope this helps, happy building!
  2. I'm a bit late to the party, but just want to chime in and echo what the others have said. Outstanding design combining DUPLO and System bricks, I wouldn't have guessed the DUPLO structure on first glance. I love the bulky hull and think the proportions work extraordinarily well. Keep up the good work!

    They simply aren't. Elusys just tried to recreate the look of the fabric sails with bricks; if I remember correctly, he built most of the digital model not from the instructions, but from the set photos. I think you could creatively try to connect them to the mast, but as they are in the render, it won't work. (I'm not even sure whether the parts used as "sails" are even available in these colours.)

    I made hardly any modifications. I did colour swap some pieces because I was eager to start building, so I will add more dark brown tiles, plants et cetera over the coming days and weeks when my next Bricklink orders arrive. One thing I did change structurally was the pig's "sand pile" that extends into the bow. Using hinge bricks with jumpers and tiles seemed a bit fragile, so I grabbed some old Hinge Plate 1 x 2 with 2 Fingers (4276), combined it with its counterpart (2452) and enjoyed the small footprint and good stability of this part. (See last picture in my following gallery.) The rooftop works brilliantly and is stable, thanks to the interlocking tiles - when I poke at the structure, the only thing moving is the Dark Tan wedge plate below from the original set, as it's only loosely attached in the original set. In fact, I like the cabin so much I would like to make another one for the other open deck (maybe adding some walls, similar to your construction that closes off the middle hull). Speaking of which - this is my favourite part of your modification, as it closes off the middle hull which is arguably on the doll house side of things in the original build. Sure thing, here you go:

    I just added most of your modifications to my build and I love them. Kudos to you for constructing them with mostly clips and to existing technic holes, that makes adding them (and removing them for play) a breeze. It's really stable and buildable too, something I'm not used to with most digital designs. :-) Keep up the great work!

    Is it available anywhere the 6285 BSB Prototype?

    You can buy it here:

    Have you checked out issue 10 of Brick Fanatics? In the magazine, there are some interesting stories about how the whole Pirate theme came to pass: Maybe I can send you a few pages from that issue as a DM ...

    Really good stuff, welcome inspiration - you really turned up the set to eleven! Do you think you could make the file available to make mimicking your changes easier?
  9. Found it in another thread, sorry: However, the file might be reverse-engineered from the pictures alone, before the instructions were availabl. In this case, the world might still be waiting for a digital model made from the instructions. If you want to join forces, let me know, I have some time on my hands.
  10. You should find the Barracuda Bay files on the first pages of this thread:

    Barracuda Bay how popular is this set?

    I bought only the island parts from someone and counted the pieces then - there are 712 pieces. So the 70 dollars LegoDW estimated in his post are pretty accurate. Why not try to sell the island parts? If you add the minifigures as well, you may well get over 70 dollars, and the island parts are ideal to further expand the base.

    Did you check out this version that is mentioned a few posts above? It has some slight (mostly colour) modifications, but it's an accurate rebuilt: (bottom of page)

    Rebrickable can do that with a little workaround: 1. Upload your MOC as a Custom List. Click "Build". 2. Disable using your own sets in the Build options and use 21322 as an "additional set" to build from (in this case: the only one). 3. Rebrickable will show all the additional pieces that are not part of the original set. You can download that list to order from Bricklink. If you want, I can do that bit of Rebrickable magic myself. Just drop me a PM!

    Don't really want to blow my own horn, but make sure to check out these cloth sails OKBrickworks has produced from my digital drafts. It's Silent Mary-style sails both in the colours and the size of the new BSB!

    Finally managed to replace some colours on my bay: yellow is now dark red, the white accents have been replaced with tan, and the figurehead is pearl gold (probably being scrubbed daily by the pirates). Also I added some darker leafs, the torn sails are still my paper prototypes from these cloth ones, and I added a few animals, but that is still work in progress.
