Hi, this is my first post, so please forgive me if it is rough around the edges. After getting Pirates of Barracuda Bay and, of course, immediately putting the ship together, my four year old wanted a pirate ship of his own. Foolishly, I thought he would love 7075 which is 4+ but it took him about a week to ask "Dad, why does my pirate ship suck?." 10 months and a few thousand pieces later, this is the result. As a challenge, I decided to only use Lego sails and Lego pieces as rigging and I was able to find a place for 100% of the pieces in 7075, so I suppose this could be considered a Mod, though that's stretching it. I intended for this to be a play set, so the deck can be removed just by lifting it up and the rigging for the jib is just hooked on to the end of the jib boom, allowing a child to unhook it and lift off the fo'c'sle, exposing the galley (The turkey can be spun over the galley stove). i don't have any pics of the cabin, yet, but hope to upload some soon. Let me know what you think, thanks!
