  1. Dear adventurer, this is the tale around the Temple of the Black Panther, follow the map and you will probably find it´s secrets... Deep in the south american jungle a shadow strikes through the thicket - the black Panther. It is worshipped by the native people and therefore they build a temple in his honour. To honour the god of the panther, they worship him with gifts of gold and blood... The adventures Part1: Clash of cultures After the landing of the spanish armada, they set forth into the jungle, seeking for the gold around the myths of el dorado. They made contact with the people and shared knowledge and goods so they could make a deal to get a map to the famous sectret temple in the jungle. With this help they managed to reach the tempel and made conttact with the prist of the panther. They have been welcomed friendly but it did not take long before the obsession for gold took over their minds... Part2: The black panther Years later, the ruins of the temple still resist the nature. A native strives through the jungle and came across already forgotten tempel. Suddenly the panther himselfs shows up and the native fled back into the jungle. Part3: Indiana Jones Getaway A shot bursts through the jungle! In the last second Indy jumps out of the way of the bullet across the big ants with the help of his whip. The russian agent has the choice, let him escape or confront herself to the dangers of the jungle? Part4: From Dusk Till Dawn - final szene (only open if you already know the movie) Extra: Nighmode and view from above Treasure hunt In the MOC is a hidden set, can you spot it? More pictures and a short video at flickr Album by Stoertebricker So now I finished my recap of my last builds, I hope you enjoy them! Adrian aka Störtebricker

    [MOC] Temple of the Black Panther - 4 Adventures through time

    actually there are 4 different scenarios :D probably @Mister Phes should take a closer look from that angle, too. Thanks! Yes i do not want to spam all the forum with pictures, so I always put more on flickr. Thank you very much, it represents what was not possible in my childhood, due to very restrictive amount of green and plant parts...

    [MOC] El Puerto de Cartagena (Anno 1585)

    Ay seamates! I got some new fotos but had problems with the background due to size, hope you will enjoy anyway: Bienvenidos a Cartagena! Lower your anchor, take a bottle of rum and relax from your adventurous voyage through the caribbean sea! Puerto de Cartagena by Captain Störtebricker The harbour should reasamble the harbour of Cartagena de Indias which intense impression has burned into my mindn after a visit there. The city was one of the first foundations made by the spanish and became one of the connection point for the gold and silver routes. The fortifications of the city have been raided several times until they have been build as strong that no one could conquer them again. In 1585 the famous pirate Sir Francis Drake did so and conquered and looted the city. In the same year the main cathedral was finished, too. So I hope you can see what brought me to this idea. The harbour consists of 3 parts (by now...): El castillo: The fort on the hill could welcome you with a big volley so be sure that you are coming in on a frienndly mission. It is situated on a rock with a cave underneath to hide some stuff you dont want to bring into the harbour. For pirates a skeleton shows then how they will be threated. The main tower is already been demolished and now converted to a small barrack. In front of the dorr there is a trap door throwing you into the cave. The fortress should be way bigger but for me it works as representing the first corner of the main fort. The doors lead you into the city... The colonial warehouse: With the warhouse I tried to reassamble the famous colonia architecture. I features a fishing gear shop and a warehouse whti a big balcony. From there you can have a nice view on the main square in front of the cathedral... The cathedral: The main cathedral looks like a fortification but due to the rich inhabitants it has nice stained glass windows. But these inhabitants do not belive very much in god but more in gold so the altar is filled up with all the treasures stolen from the surrounding natives all around the caribbean. So come in and take a closer look! The cathedrals has detachable roofs and can be accessed by minfigs on all levels. Besides the cathedral there is right now the tavern from POTC but it can easily be removed to continue the pier to expand the harbour... (which I hope I can do!) All in all I hope you enjoyed your stay and be ready to set sail for your next adventour! - Captain Störtebricker (More fotos: Flickr Album Puerto de Cartagena )

    [MOC] Magnetic North Frigate

    My comment was no criticism, I was just interested in, because I have a white hulll waiting for some building on top of my shelf, too.
  9. Hi mates! It has been some time, I only teased differend WIPs but never showed a finished one the last months... No honestly, I just had no time - but now it´s here: Davy Jones, do you fear the Black Pearl? The ship is fully motorized accompanying my "Rolling" Dutchman: Motorized Features: Rolling movement caused by waves (1. L-Motor) Motorized movement for- and backward (1. L-Motor, switched manually) Motorized steering with simoultaneously rotating ship´s wheel, rudder and steering mechanism (1.S-Motor) Motorized sail trim with turning capstan and changing sail position of all square sails (2.S-Motor) All features can be controlled by rc-control via 4 channels and two receivers The battery box can slide out easily to switch on/off and change batteries EXTRA: The lower cannons can fire a broadside automatically! General Features: Two decks with cannons (one side the lower deck is closed to store the motors) The two tripple-barreld chasers can manually slide backwards and then the gun ports can be closed Handmade sails or original Lego-Sails Two functional anchors Upper cabin minifigure size (illuminated by light-brick) The ropes between the masts can be removed easily to take them apart for transport There is a video on youtube showing the ship and its functions (german): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=35WEGDM8yYE The functions are shown at e.g. 04:55 and the shooting mechanism at 07:18. I have the ship with self-made sails fitting the style of my "Rolling" Dutchman as well: I hope you enjoy it! My dream is a video reassembling the popular footage in the maelstroom, I hope I can arrange something similar in the future... Yours, Captain Störtebricker

    [MOC] Black "Brick" Pearl (motorized with PF)

    Thanks @Jack Sassy! I decided to take partly the prefab hull for stability reasons. But I divided it at the front to accompany the front wheels and the back ppart is brick built do get a more curvy shape to the stern (You can see it in the last foto). a black pearl is somehow black, true. The blue tiles scattered around give it some more reflections but yes, still black Thank you very much! Thanks @NOD and @ Henry from klemmbausteinlyrik, I think I would not had the time to make a video this long on my own.

    [MOC] Magnetic North Frigate

    Wow what a firendsy colour, nearly without brown colour, i like it! is there some backstory, who is behind the magnetic north? Do you took some inspiration from MocYourBricks " Grenouille"? The hull looks similar.

    [MOC] El Puerto de Cartagena (Anno 1585)

    Thanks @all! Indeed it is less then 48studs deep and getting wider to the cathedral. I hope to continue the scene some day! Indeed you can play with it although there have to pass some years until someone is there to play with it... I forgot to ask if someone recomends to attach some of the harry-potter-hogwarts stickers to get some more details on the cathedrals panels, what do you think?

    [LDD] Trinidad Pirate Ship

    JLa798zAADg6.... Sorry, I was 2 months off this forum during "summer", can someone sum up for me how many amazing new ships NOD just has published since then? I think I have to stop here commenting and just read the older posts...

    [VIDEO] Pirates of the Karibrick

    Hi, great to see a pirate-town grow, will you show it off somewhere in germany when completed? Immer eine Hand Breit Wasser unter der Kamera, ich wünschte ich hätte auch den Platz/Equipment für gute Aufnahmen. Beste Grüße aus Hamburg!

    [Moc] Blue imperial guards in IKEA frame

    I have seen several different approaches for filling frames with lego, this is a good one, I really like the old smile faces, you can make your own story way easier with them. Here you can decide, is the guy angry or happy to meet King Kahuka, I see him happy :D

    [WIP] Full Hull Battleship

    It has a nice shape already even it has not the smoothest surface compared to others but I like that you can see it is made from lego and not using prefab pieces as well. So I am confident it will turn out fantastic!

    [MOC] Do you fear... the Flying Dutchman?

    Wow, nice, the video shows it´s full beauty! Great feature with the cannons which open the gun ports! But where did you get the brown small octopus?!
  21. Ahoy, seamates! I have started my LEGO-Ideas Project 2-3 months ago and now I want to present it to the specific lego pirates community! Would be nice to get your suppport but even more I am looking for some advice what I can improve on it. SUPPORT NOW Please take a look on the ideas website or at my flickr https://flic.kr/s/aHsmMnLn6a for more fotos! Here is the text from ideas: Welcome on board of The Rolling Dutchman! Since I have been a child I always wanted to control my LEGO Red Beard Runner without pushing it around and now my dream has come true. I have build a motorized Version of the famous Flying Dutchman which is my favorite pirate ship, too. I have seen the original swedish Vasa which has given the idea for the Dutchman with its marvelous bow and stern. So I managed to combine them with my own creative ideas into this "rolling" Dutchman! Please have a look at the features in the video and the pictures! Video: Update 2: Thanks for your 1k supports so far! I have worked on the main picture a bit and now added a picture of the crew and one showing the functions as well. Update 1: New rotten Sails! (Picture 7+8+Video still with the first sails) Motorized Features: Rolling movement caused by waves (1. M-Motor) Two motorized triple-barrelled chasers in the bow (1. M-Motor) Motorized steering with simoultaneously rotating ship´s wheel, rudder and steering mechanism (S-Motor) Motorized movement for- and backward (L-Motor) Motorized sail trim with turning capstan and changing sail position of all square sails (M-Motor) All features can be controlled by rc-control via 4 channels and two receivers All features use the Power-Function System but could easily be adapted to the new Control+ System which can lead to advanced handling of the functions The battery box can slide out easily to switch on/off and change batteries General Features: Minifigures: Davy Jones, Jack Sparrow, Elizabeth, Bill Turner, Barbossa and more. (I am not familiar with the movies in english so I would like to ask you to tell me the names in the comments section!) Two decks with cannons (one side the lower deck is closed to store the motors) The two tripple-barreld chasers can manually slide backwards and then the gun ports can be closed Removable deck at the stern to take out the steering wheel Removable lower balcony´s on both sides Handmade sails Two functional anchors Upper cabin minifigure size with Jack stealing the heart (illuminated) Lower cabin with Davy Jones organ (illuminated) Two torches at the stern (illuminated) The capstan can be removed The ship is based on the sturdy hull parts, the complete 2 lower rows of bricks can be removed with the steering and driving wheels to use it as "normal" push forward ship or display model The main mast and the mizzen are both slightly tilted backwards Correct rigging and sails due to the movies The ropes between the masts can be removed easily to take them apart for transport It would be an honor to receive your support. Aye! I have to thank my friend J-H to help me with some motorization problems and a special thanks to my girlfriend for not freaking out! Thanks, yours Störtebricker from Hamburg, Germany SUPPORT NOW
  22. Wow, thanks! Nice article! As this has popped up I can tease an other motorized ship here which I will publish soon, I think you can guess, savvy?

    [MOC] El Puerto de Cartagena (Anno 1585)

    When you scroll through the foto in the flickr album you find the Dying Gull moored in the harbour. There was a guy looking like your pic on board but he immediately ran to the tavern so I could not catch him on the foto It was always planned to form a city. I tried to make it modular (although the ground shapes are quite different) but when I can continue the harbour I want to be able to shift the different parts. Yes I have heard about that town. Looks very nice but quite small on the fotos. When one day I make my dream come true - a sailing tour through the caribbean - I have to make a stop there!

    [MOC] El Puerto de Cartagena (Anno 1585)

    Damn it, the people around here will find everything (before someone mentions it: the pier is floating in the air at two poles, it is due to my showcase where its displayed which has an edge there...) Yes the spanish are reboulding the army because they are spread so rarely through the the official sets and I did not want to rip the crew of my Armada Brig and I needed some for my Aztec - Temple of the Jaguar, which will be shown here the next months, too. The Imperial Armada will be ready and take control back when the harbour is back from an exhibition in around 4 months. I will update some photos then!
