    Modding the Barracuda thread

    I painstakingly cut them out with some tiny scissors ... :-) I'm still thinking about paper/fabric choices, will test some kind of canvas paper next. Fabric sometimes feels too "naturalistic" to me, but I will definitely try it out too!

    Added torn sails to my finished Bay - first printing test on paper. More info in the "Reproducing lego sails" thread.

    Reproducing LEGO Sails

    Finished the set and added my torn sails, made from paper for the time being. Next step: Printing both sides of the sail!

    I've updated most files in my Bricksafe. And here are the promised photos (haven't finished building the third building) from a very first test of the torn sails (standard paper for now):

    Reproducing LEGO Sails

    Like this?: I'll upload it to my Bricksafe in a few seconds. If you have any other wishes or want to have a go at it yourself, drop me a line or use the vector files! There's a pure black and a white version (with outlines, as seen above) available.

    That piece is pretty new, so you just have to wait for it to appear in new colours, I guess. Why not replace it with a more angular look like Yellow Slope 30 1 x 1 x 2/3 (54200) in the meantime?

    My sails are 100% scanned and vectorized from the new Bay sails! The tattered sails are matched in size for the bay. I'll gladly change the outline and add a ruler as you proposed. I will print the tattered sails today and take a photo tonight!

    Modding the Barracuda thread

    Over at the Reproducing LEGO sails thread I just added the link to my vector reproductions of the 2020's Black Seas Barracuda sails as well as a version that combines the new sails with the tattered look from 71042 Silent Mary. It lets you mix and match, depending on whether you want the shorter or longer tattered sails on either the top or the bottom rigging. There's also a version for the bow. Since all the modders of the Bay are gathered here, I thought this might be of interest. All the PDF files are found at my Bricksafe: https://bricksafe.com/pages/DavidOrtmann/pirates-of-barracuda-bay

    Reproducing LEGO Sails

    I just made vector versions from all the new sails. Israel, would you be interested in hosting/merging my files with your collection? I also combined the new sails with the tattered look from 71042 Silent Mary. It also lets you mix and match, depending on whether you want the shorter or longer tattered sails on either the top or the bottom rigging. There's also a version for the bow. You can find both PDF and Illustrator files over at my Bricksafe: https://bricksafe.com/pages/DavidOrtmann/pirates-of-barracuda-bay Let me know if you have any feedback!

    THE PIRATE BAY IS GOING TO BE AN OFFICIAL LEGO SET!!!!

    Would love to see your take on some custom sails! Do you have any resources one could look into since I'm new to the subject? Do you think something similiar to the sails of 71042 Silent Mary would be too tattered?

    LEGO Life, if you mean that, only has particular sets avaliable for 3D instructions. In these cases, it's advertised on the packaging. There are no 3D instructions for Barracuda Bay, so using the printed or PDF versions is the way to go. Why do you need "more detailed instructions"? The printed ones are pretty foolproof.

    I can do some colour corrections, if you want. Wanna join a Dropbox folder? I can't send forum messages yet because I'm new, but I'll help happily. Pablo used mostly Reddish Brown with Dark Brown and Black accent colours since Brown hasn't been in production for quite some time. Because he did some photoshopping afterwards for a more vintage look, the colours resemble Brown. Uploading to Rebrickable might be a problem. I tried to upload free files/instructions for an IDEAS set that didn't make it and that I rebuilt likewise from pictures, and I wasn't allowed to since I wasn't the original creator. I'm also not sure whether the IDEAS guidelines allow a rebuilt, but I am not here to open that particular can of legal worms ...

    I am wondering - you used the old "Brown" as the colour for most parts in the Stud.io file. Are you sure that Pablo did not use Reddish Brown in his version? There are some who say that his pictures have been desaturated on IDEAS, that's why the brown is less vibrant and darker (and the greens much paler).

    Thanks!

    Do you have a schedule on when to publish the stud.io file? Would love to have a look at the building techniques!

    German blog Stonewars.de just published a review, comparing old and new ship. You might have to convert the measurements yourself: height old: 47 cm height new: 57 cm length old: 62 cm length new: 64 cm width old: 23 cm width new: 27 cm (because of bigger sails, hull is identical) All measurements are approximations.

    Yes, you can find it buried in this very thread. User Elusys Ra Arwal posted this link for his digital recreation on March 31, I hope it's still working: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AnjD_3iOHS04jE7q8E6jupKBZlgx?e=pdkP3v You can find another version (with an additional water baseplate) in the "Modding the Barracuda" thread in this forum.

    I am pretty busy at work these days and probably won't be able to help, but I'd love a reverse-engineered version of the proposed idea, to get inspired for further enhancements of the set (which I love).

    You mean the longer axle in Pearl Gold?

    Aren't all sets for the European market sent from a central location in Belgium (?). So all Europeans might wait for the same warehouse to catch up. I think they shipped the Express orders first, because those seem to have arrived, but I couldn't swallow the high extra for that.

    Modding the Barracuda thread

    What colour do you plan for the soft axles, which are not available in dark red? I was thinking about changing yellow to flat silver/light bluish grey/dark bluish grey, but I like your idea better.
