Hello, would like to present one simple and classic design. I 'm pretty sure you are all well familiar with the Caribbean Clipper (set no. 6274). And while my dream ship was the Black Seas Barracuda, I always yearned for the blue sails of the imperial soldiers. Even though I never had the set, I always found it to be lacking compared to the big pirate ships. So once I had my hands on the complete BSB, I also got myself a 70ish percent complete set of the BSB that I used to modify and enlarge the complete one. What I was left with was enough pieces to build my own redention of the Caribbean Clipper. Where I found it lacking was not in the style itself, but I found it to be too short in lenght, and lacking a second full mast. And for the past years I 've been building it slowly with extra parts I was left with from other creations. It's nothing that special, it's quite simple actually, but I hope I managed to catch that "Classic pirates" vibe I really love :) Brig - Two Masts - Two Square Sails on the Main 21C And ofcourse the bow and stern I hope you'll like it guys
Hello again everybody, while I might risk sounding a bit like a spoiled brat, I 'll still tell you the "story" of my first "pirate theme" ship. Remember drooling over those 1989, 1990 and 1991 lego catalouges with the great Black Seas Barracuda (6285) and while the Skull's Eye Schooner (6286) was a far more elaborate ship, thoes red sails got imprinted in my retina. The BSB was simply my dream ship, and I asked my parents if they ever get the chance to get me that "red sail ship" and they got me the "red sail ship", only it wasn't BSB it was the Imperial Flagship (6271). That was my childhoods first and only lego pirate theme ship. I really liked that ship after I got used to the fact that it is not the actual red sail ship, but I still remember the initial disappointment that it wasn't the BSB. You can notice the size difference on this photo between 6271 and the modded 6285: A year ago I got the BSB and really loved it, but felt it was a bit small now that I've grown, so I modded it into a bit longer three masted ship. And with BSB around I felt the Imperial flagship was kinda outgunned in every possible way, and didn't feel that, even thoe it looks faster, the ships commander would ever sail into an engagment facing a ship as big as BSB. So I decided to make my own version. Btw, I always preferd the blue coats over the red coats. So ladies and pirates this is it: Brig - Two Masts - One Square Sail on the Main 6C Just kidding :D This was something I built during my dark age, one night I was back at my folks home going trought lego boxes. My first idea was to try and see if it looked any better in blue coats colours and I'll let you be the judge of that: And then I started planing for the total rehull. Orderd another hull mid section and parts for another mast and a few windows, and this is what I came up with (ofcourse used my lego stash aswell), a blue coats version of imperial flagship named "Impérial": It actually isn't fair to compare it to my moded version of BSB since I made it quite bigger, but still think that the commander of "Impérial" could face the BSB with a fighting chance on the high seas: The ships bow with the figurehead: And the stern: Hope you like the new blue coats flagship!
Hello everybody, I 'll try to present myself as a classic lego sets fan by using this not that hugely modified El Dorado classic pirates set. The goal was to keep much of the charm of the classic sets and creating the atmosphere of those old style lego catalouges. Hope you 'll like it guys :) This is it, a small port town with its pier, tavern, fort, small mansion and a beach with gold digging pirates: A few close-ups And another shot with my redention of the anchored Caribbean Clipper in the forefront Please do give me suggestions and comments since I'm new at this!
Mr. Smee posted a topic in LEGO PiratesA frequently asked question by newcomers is where to buy Pirate LEGO. So this thread will be a definitive list for all those who ask - rather than having individual threads for each query. eBay Amazon.com LEGO Shop BrickLink Eurobricks Buy, Sell, Trade and Finds Forum Custom Brick Arms The Little Arms Shops BrickForge BaronSat Original Post Hey all. I used to be really into pirates back in it's heyday (early 90's) and I still have my Black Seas Barracuda :) Recently I've been getting into Lego Pirates again, and been hunting on Bricklink and eBay for the last 2 weeks. So far, I picked up a Skulls Eye Schooner (complete, excellenct condition) from Bricklink for $140 and I also got a Lagoon Lock-Up on eBay for $15.00. I think I got a pretty good deal, what do you guys think? *pirate*
