For me when the pirate theme was first released it was so exciting, With so many new elements and of course those new minifigures which were like no other at the time. I was fortunate enough to have quite alot of the original series and obviously the ones you wanted were the big ships, which is why this weekend I've decided to send out the divers and deep sea rescuers and raise up the Black Skull from depths of...a dirty dusty shelf in my playroom. Quite frankly I should be ashamed. This is one job I've been putting off for far too long. It's mainly 95% complete with never been taken apart before with most missing pieces scattered across various parts boxes. Luckily the sails are in pretty good shape nothing a good iron won't sort out. Unlike when I rebuilt the Black sea barracuda a few years back. Her sails had gone all fraid and mouldy, due to their design an easy substitute was found. First job is to strip scrub and dry.. With all the parts boxed up in the airing cupboard over night it dried nicely. With the instructions dug up it was time start the rebuild... So far so good..almost. As with alot of my old lego it would appear that when I was younger I must have left it in the sunniest place possible. Who would of thought Lego made the tan shade of colour all those years ago. I've some substitutes, some bricks can be turned around to face the other way but others will have to wait for now.
