  1. Dies Irae

    Winter Retreat 1812

    What a wonderfully detailed scene! As I scrolled through the pictures, Adagio For Strings started playing in my mind
  2. Wow that’s a great price! Where did you buy for 78 euros?
  3. I like your mod! I bought only one set but agree that the entire brick built nature of this set opens up more modding possibilities.
  4. My set finally arrived 2 days ago and the first build I made was naturally the ship. The final result is not as bad as I feared ... i quite like the brick built hull, the detailing around the captain’s cabin and the fact that there is a real gun deck (in contrast to 21322). I haven’t made up my mind whether I like the brick sails. Finally this design does offer many opportunities for modding so that will be my Long term project The one thing that bothered me most was the sloping poop deck. Initially I thought I did something wrong but realised this was not the case when I looked at other pics online. Here’s a close up. This slope really looks weird and I want to fix it at some stage.
  5. Has anyone bought this set yet? There seems to be a diversity of opinion on this but the proof of the pudding is in the eating, as they say
  6. Don’t know if this has already been posted, but 31109 is now on LEGO.com https://www.lego.com/en-us/product/pirate-ship-31109

    Modding the Barracuda thread

    Hi everyone I got seriously back into LEGO when I bought the barracuda bay set recently (presents for my kids don’t count imo!) now I’ve become an obsessed AFOL, and I’m thinking about how to make the ship a proper pirate ship - eg remodel the lower deck into a gun deck, add another deck, add a crow’s nest etc am also thinking of changing the settlement that’s left when you combine the ship, into a proper pirate hideout. Perhaps I’ll incorporate the tavern from the upcoming Creator 3in1 set. Can the more experienced folks here provide any general pointers on how to get started on making these designs? do you only source for parts through Bricklink? thanks!
