  1. This is my imagination of what the ship which is wrecked in 6296 would have been like when it still sailed. I tried my best to incorporate as many elements from the original set as I could, but the skull stern couldn't be saved. Features are guns which can swivel between sides, a working capstan, which raises and lowers the net and the stern is hinged to allow access to the cabin. For fun, I tried not to use any pieces which which hadn't come out at the time of the release of 6296, but alas, I needed to use 1x2 plates with door rails instead of the 1x8s from the original in order to fit the cannon assemblies in the hull. This is my first attempt at custom sails and a brick built hull, and I really had a blast. Thank you everyone for all the amazing inspiration to build!

    [MOD/MOC] 7075 Captain Redbeard's Pirate Ship

    I couldn't figure out how to upload the full size ones on here. It limited my upload size to .01MB. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, though. Thanks for the encouragement!

    [WIP] Jack Stone Hulled ship WIP experiment

    I love how your shaping works with the hull pieces! Your post made me decide to upload one I did using these. They are really underused, imo!
  4. 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! Here is a link for higher res versions of the same images: https://imgur.com/a/8YWBj68
