    [MOC] The Seven Seas Barracuda (East Indiaman Galleon)

    I refer to this sentence from the original post about modified parts. I think these parts look great but still I never would cut parts to solve a lego-construction-problem. Unfortunately I did not came up with a better solution so I use ropes instead. In my understanding: shrouds are the ropes which connect the masts to the hull due to stability, you have used the special brown "ladder" pieces for that and modified them.

    [MOC] Pirate Barque: The Spectre

    And another perfect ship in an even magnificant colour. I dont understand why lego always uses reddish brown, I like the dark one a lot more. Luckily I was able to buy a big lot of 1x4 plates in dark brown so I hope to get some more of this colour in the builds! Do you only use knots in the ropes or do you glue them at some points as well? Until know I used only some black rope with small diameter which needed at least a double knot to not fall apart so I glued it especially for the shrouds.

    [LEGO IDEAS] "Fortress of Hunyadi" by Zsolti (@MyFirstMoc)

    Great to see a fortress situated in a more oriental style like this hungarian one!

    [MOC] The treasure..

    Is there even a foto with you having the crown on your head and the goblet full of wine?

    [MOC] Pig Island

    what a build, never had pirates from duplo, when did they came as sets? Your familys fleet is as fearsome as possible in duplo, too!

    [MOC] Sabre Island Anno Domini 2021

    Nice tower, I love that it is quite "massive" not as skinny as the most towers around here and especially those in the official sets. The size also bring a spot to the nice window and door decorations. This would fit quite well with the big fortress which has a form of a pentagon (which is also on ideas). Did not find the link in this moment...

    [MOC] Havana 1717

    I have been to havanna and your rendition fits perfect, I always wondered if the city was so colourful in 1717 like it is today (even when its a bit corroded nowaday due to the salty air from the sea). I am building a harbour imaginated by Cartagena de Indias right now, this would fit in perfectly. Unfortunately my collonial building isnas good as these...
  9. So cuute! :D Somehow I immediatly have to think again about one of my favourite books: The 131⁄2 Lives of Captain Bluebear with its dwarf pirates riding the malmstroem, I dont know if it is popular in english speaking countries... We need some blue bear minfig so I can build a nice MOC!

    [MOC] The Seven Seas Barracuda (East Indiaman Galleon)

    Wow what a great galleon, you know what I love is about lego is that it has always a level of abstracting the original which spices up my imagination. So when you see a lego pirate ship, like the original barracuda, you can see with the help of the imagination a perfect galleon. What you did is bringing the baracuda up to this what I expect it to look through my imagination, but now its real. Unbelieveable! Cant say much more the the people before, keep up with the work! Only one thing, you really want to cut the original lego parts for the shrouds?!

    [MOC] "Fer Maiden" - 36 Gun Privateer Frigate

    Wow, have seen this one before on several websites, all together insane, perfect artwork as well. Thumbs up for all, I quite like that you have made the main and foresail caught up, that provides the best view on the deck! And a detachable under water ship is even more satisfying!
  12. Wow this thing is huge, great work! Looks like a lot of work, is it empty inside like the cabin at the stern? I dont know who wants to buy this monster because it is so big but I hope you will find a new captain for it, the work put into it is way to much to dismantle it.

    [MOC] Armada Brig

    Thats a good point, I will make some better when I catch some more sunlight next time! When I was a child I had the same opinion (it was also the lonely pirates opponent) as well because the pirateships are mostly bigger but today I kind of like the set especially how they put all the 4 main colours in and for me it works. When I built it I did not like the brick build cannons at all but with time I changed my mind. Unfortunately I dont own a lot of wedge plate 2x3. Probably I can build some before making the side pictures... Thanks at all!

    [MOC] Armada Brig

    Hm, I am no native english speaker but I am referring to the nearly square sail (built out of two triangular sail from 6280, best seen on the 5th foto) at the aftmost mast which is in the direction of the ship, i think another name is "driver sail" Wikipedia Spanker.

    [MOC] Armada Brig

    Hi everybody! after seeing the wonderulf WIP "The Parrot" I wanted to share my old MOC on the small white hull pieces of the 6280 as well: The Armada Brig The ship is build only with original Lego-parts except a few more strings and it was the first one I build using all the modern slopes. Therfore I was very proud of the bow which was raised by to rows of slopes and the working achor mechanism there. The captains cabin can be opened from top. It includes a big table, a collection of flags taken from all the different sunk ships and all the other stuff a captain needs: The spanker sail is made out of two of the 6280 sails as well: Take a look at my Flickr Album Armada Brig to see more datailed fotos! I am looking forward on your thoughts on the ship, please consider its already 3-4 years old, from my time I just came back to Lego
