    [MOC] Havana 1717

    Thank you Stoertebricker! I've actually never been to Havana, but I'm glad my rendition fits. I'd love to go some day. Yes, It would be great to know if it was as colorful back then as it is today. I just googled Cartagena and wow, it's beautiful! I'm looking forward to seeing your rendition!

    [MOC] Eldorado Fortress Remake

    Oh, I like this! Very recognizable as a remake of Eldorado Fortress but it still has it's own, updated character. Style-wise it would really fit in well as an official lego set, lots of playability but also not overly huge. It would fit in really well into the current Barracuda Bay and Creator pirate ship world!
  3. Love this thread! This is some excellent stuff!

    [MOC] Havana 1717

    Thank you! I intend to use these buildings which are inspired by Havana in a larger port layout, which I will include in future episodes. It'll be a while until that is completed, however, and it won't be part of the stop-motion series until a couple episodes down the line.

    [MOC] Sabre Island Anno Domini 2021

    This is beautiful! I love the parts that make it look a bit run-down: the crumbling brick segments and also at the top the different ways to build the bannister. Very nice!

    [MOC] The treasure..

    This is very impressive! I also really like that it's life-size.

    [MOC] Forbidden Island

    Thanks Elusys Ra Arwal! I actually prefer many of those brick-built cannon builds to the official cannon mould. :-)

    [MOC] Havana 1717

    Thanks Fraunces. That game really did suck me in :-) Thanks! Would love to see what you're building! Thanks! It's getting bigger :-) I've completed another building, a baroque palacio: And because I'm in an art mood:

    [MOC] The Siege of Skull Island by Imperial Guards

    Wow, love this! I'm into art big-time and this is a wonderful combination of art and lego!

    [MOC] Forbidden Island

    I'm a bit late to the party but this is absolutely phenomenal! Makes me want to be a pirate and live there! Fantastic! And Elusys Ra Arwal, I've been using your cannon designs as inspiration, I hope that's ok!
  11. Wow, very creative! I especially love the stairs!

    [MOC] Havana 1717

    Thanks everyone! I'm glad you like it. The "ground" is polystyrene, painted with some layers of very watered down acrylic paints, so that the paint concentrates in the gaps and cracks of the polystyrene, giving it a bit of a rocky cobblestone look. Jan, I recently found your incredible pirate pictures on Flickr, so it made me smile to see you comment on my moc here. Thanks!

    [MOC] Havana 1717

    Thanks! When I set out to build a port town in the carribean I thought I would need mainly grey and white, which I always seem to have too little of. When I then researched inspiration I found alot of colour is quite fitting, and I actually love using a lot of colour. Thanks! Thank you Jack. I'm not planning on actually having the historical Havana in the series but rather a large fictional port town set in the mediterranean, including a fort. It'll be a couple episodes before they arrive there though, and I'm still in the beginning stages of building the whole diorama.

    [MOC] Havana 1717

    I present to you Havana 1717: I took inspiration from the Havana of the PC Game Assasins Creed Black Flag, set in the Golden Age of Piracy. For the blue building in the centre I disassembled my 10252 VW Beetle and used many of the parts to achieve the rounding of the building. I plan on using these buildings as part of a much larger port town layout for future episodes of my stop-motion animation series Being Pirates, So look out for more. Let me know what you think! Check out a current episode of Being Pirates if you like:
