    [MOC] The Sacking of Portobelo

    The Sacking of Portobelo, July 1668 On the 11th of July 1668, Henry Morgan, the greatest buccaneer Admiral in history, took a force of several hundred privateers to raid one of the largest settlements on the Spanish Main, Portobelo. At this time, Portobelo was a vital cog in the imperial operation that pulled unimaginable wealth out of the Americas destined for Spain. After successfully sacking the town, Captain Morgan and his men remained for roughly a month. During their stay they successfully repelled a Spanish attempt to retake the settlement and eventually forced the payment of 100,000 pesos for the return of the town. Although not explicitly allowed by Morgan’s Letter of Marque, those back in England cheered the Welshman’s daring raid, leading to several more attempts like it during Morgan’s long and successful privateering career.

  6. Treasure of the Spanish Plate Fleet, 1716 On July 31st, 1715 one of the wealthiest Treasure Fleets in history wrecked off the coast of Florida. Millions of Spanish coins, jewels, and other valuables littered the shallows. After months of Spanish recovery efforts a small fortune remained lightly guarded on the beach, open to anyone daring enough to steal it. In early 1716, a small group of pirates lead by Henry Jennings, Sam Bellamy, and Benjamin Hornigold raided the small Spanish garrison and made off with a haul equivalent to 10 years of wages for only a single nights 'work'. The wealth of this raid and the inspiration it provided for would-be pirates across the New World, kicked off the final stages of the Golden Age of Piracy.

    [MOC] A Skirmish at North Bridge

    A Skirmish at North Bridge April 18th, 1775 British Redcoats engage in a firefight with local Militia on the outskirts of Concord. This small battle marks the first day of the American Revolution. (I figured as the Revolutionary War took place during the Age of Sail this was a good forum for this build) A Skirmish at North Bridge by Nicholas Goodman, on Flickr A Skirmish at North Bridge: Redcoats by Nicholas Goodman, on Flickr A Skirmish at North Bridge: Mlitia by Nicholas Goodman, on Flickr
  10. Part III ‘Clash with the Tabascans’ Cortés and his expedition left Cozumel, and by late March his armada anchored off of the coast of the Tabascan settlement of Pontonchan. Cortés took a group of small oared boats up the Tabasco River into the thick mangrove swamps. Hidden in the lush jungle lining the river were, seemingly, countless Tabascan Warriors armed with bows and spears. The warriors rushed the Spanish boats forcing the Conquistadors to fight back in waist deep water. Cortés lost a boot on his way ashore, but he managed to continue fighting and directing his troops. The Spanish organized once on land and managed to repel the waves of Tabascan Warriors until they finally retreated back into the overgrown jungle.

  11. Trouble in Vulture Creek Here is my take on an Old West Town, called Vulture Creek. A few bandits have helped themselves to the contents of the Town Bank's Vault.

  14. Hi guys BrickHammer here, as a part of my ongoing journey to build all the things I would have loved to build as a child, I have just created a Forestmen MOC on LEGO Ideas. I tried to capture all the classic elements of the old Forestmen sets while giving the whole thing a brand new look! I hope you like it! I would really appreciate your feedback (and your support)! If you have any question about the MOC, the design choices or the building process, feel free to ask! https://ideas.lego.com/projects/1dab75ef-a79a-4dbd-ad63-8c9433be0c5c/comments_tab#content_nav_tabs

  17. Here it is! Refinished and redone, with a couple of added bits and bobs, the Mountain Oracle! Ascend the steps of her mountain sanctuary, and just maybe she'll speak to you of the future. This is a MOC I created a while back, I've made some upgrades since the first version. The fountain down in front, as one, as well as that waterfall coming out of the mountain. And a second partial tools up on the hillside to the right. And yes, that staircase is a lot more sturdy than you'd think. It's supported from underneath the platform landing as well as by several clear supports that are hidden behind the staircase itself. This is the original MOC, that's been improved. This MOC (the resubmission) is now gathering support with blazing speed on LEGO Ideas! If you like it and wish to support it, please consider doing so! Thank you! :) https://ideas.lego.com/projects/f31174e5-f828-4ea8-858b-9014d457cbfc You can check out more pictures here on the Flickr page!
  18. Hey guys, BrickHammer here, I have recently created another historic themed MOC for Lego Ideas: the "Legoredo Stagecoach". I tried to combine the historic aethetics of Wild West stagecoaches with LEGO's more colourful classic Wild West look. I originally had intended to include 6 minifigs (2 employees and 4 passengers) but LEGO moderates forced me to reduce the number to 4. I hope you like the build and I appreciate both your feedback and your support :) https://ideas.lego.com/projects/e066297b-7595-4064-a4a8-344fb8abc988
  19. Hello, I own a 070 universal building set from 1967 or so (photo1), but this one has cardboard inlays instead of the plastic ones you can commonly find (photo2). Does anyone has an idea whether it is an older type, or some transition box? I cannot find more info on this. Except: the set 050 from 1964 has similar inlays (photo3)... Thanks for helping me out!
  20. A Castle designed by me for my Kids i such a way as to be as playable as possible. Detailed description and more pictures You'll find on my entry on Lego Ideas. I'll be grateful for Your comments. If You like it, please support on Lego Ideas leave Your comment and don't forget to share with Your Friends :)
  21. Support a LEGO Idea? Submitted this idea to LEGO, but built it to fill a need for more steam punk builds in general. Anyone who's familiar with steam punk have some details they would add to this that could make it more appealing? In 1865, a time traveler came to Abe Lincoln and told him his gruesome fate. Wanting to avoid this, Abe agreed to come aboard the time traveler's vessel and live his best life: treasure hunting through time! Along the way, he gathered a crew of history's most adventurous people. Along with Abe came Cleopatra, Sun Tzu, Socrates, Robin Hood, and Blackbeard. He persuaded these celebrities of history by offering fame and fortune beyond their wildest dreams. The vessel itself is a hardy steam-powered copter ship that can travel on water or through the air. It is driven by a lightning rod device that uses static electricity in the clouds and lightning to power its fuel cell attached to the wheel. That wheel is connected to a helm clock and an engine clock where the crew can set a course for any time throughout history. One can remove the rear deck in order to stow helpful items and treasure! A rear propeller thrusts forward movement while side propellers affect the yaw. Heavy chains keep the rotor and engine assembly stable while in flight. Get ready for adventure and fun as this all-star crew wets their feet on this maiden voyage tea party! Support this time machine idea!
  22. I ve being thinking for a while to share with you my Lego Ideas Mocs... and I ve being hesitant. Well I decided to go ahead and do it!!! These is my latest moc and I m planning to upload the others too :) https://ideas.lego.com/content/project/link/3c993b46-9c04-400b-a633-86dd613463cc Based on several Japanese Traditional Watermills, this modular structure works both manually or with added Power Functions. It is made from 2073 Lego bricks, 3 minifigures and PF are also included in the count. When I began my research into Japanese Traditional Architecture I became fascinated with its Watermills... Such simple structures but at the same time so intriguing mechanisms that perform a simple task of grinding! My Working Watermill With Interior & Power Functions consists of the roof, a ground floor and a basement. The big Mill turns either by turning the crank on the rock in the river or by power functions that can be added in the basement. It creates movement in the mechanism found on the ground floor. If PF are not added the basement works as a storage for the seeds that are harvested and awaiting to be grinded. This would make a great set as I feel a working watermill is something missing from Lego sets. Its is very playful and could be easily added in a modular landscape. I m currently in the process of gathering bricks and hopefully before the end of the year I will be able to make it a real-life model! I would like to thank my dear friend @Patgeo for helping me work out and simplify the gears and power function mechanism!!!
  23. I was looking for LEGO Concorde designs but not very much came up in such a small scale so I thought I might as well give it a try. It comes complete with bendable nose cone, retractable landing gears (front and back), moveable back wing flaps (thanks again, mini fig pants...!) and the optional flame FX for... historical accuracy... . . .!? And as always you can find more pics here and if interested in a cutesy little Concorde to swoosh around the full set & instructions are available here. I hope you like my small sized interpretation of one of aviation history's most iconic aircraft. Thanks & have fun! (And many thanks to ukbajadave for explaining to a noob how to implement more pics here!)

Now on Youtube https://www.flickr.com/gp/189396852@N04/M022um The Royal Albert Hall is situated in South West London and is one of the most internationally recognised buildings. Designed to promote the arts and sciences it has since 1871 maintained its hectic schedule of rock gigs, classical music concerts, community and school concerts, comedy, circus, lectures, film premieres and sports, including tennis and even boxing. It is the Rolls Royce of village halls!

Each half of the hall can be lifted out to access a basic representation of the loading bay, car park, backstage and arena bars. 20200718_210251 by Barney Rayfield, on Flickr 20200718_211952 by Barney Rayfield, on Flickr 20200718_211130 by Barney Rayfield, on Flickr Further details include the south steps with John Durham's statue of Prince Albert presiding over representations of the four continents and the tree outside stage door planted in tribute to Mario Lanza.

Many thanks. 20200718_211001 by Barney Rayfield, on Flickr I had been stockpiling dark red and tan Lego for some time even though I was too busy to contemplate building the Hall. Then with Covid 19 and the lock down I suddenly had no excuse. The Royal Albert Hall is very close to my heart: I work there and to see it shut and empty is beyond heart breaking. IMG-20200718-WA0032 by Barney Rayfield, on Flickr I finished this just as the 2020 Proms started and this is a model to celebrate not just a venue but live music the world over. Wherever you are please look after your arts venues. They will be the last parts of the economy to be reopened and need our help. 20200718_205647 by Barney Rayfield, on Flickr 20200718_214133 by Barney Rayfield, on Flickr Please do go to the Royal Albert Hall's website if you want to donate but in the meantime I hope you like the model. Please tell your friends. I am barely on social media so fee free to share photos of it. I might need a piggy back to get this seen. IMG-20200718-WA0038 by Brney Rayfield, on Flickr
  25. Part II: ‘The Serendipitous Gift of Language‘ On the Island of Cozumel, Cortés and his forces readied to set out for the mainland of Mexico. It was March 12th, 1519 and the conquest of the New World was about to begin. As they prepared to leave, a canoe was seen approaching the island from the mainland. A Captain named Andrés de Tapia was dispatched to investigate the strangers. The canoe was manned by several indigenous people but as it reached the shore only one stepped on to the beach. In shaky spanish the stranger asked Tapia “Brothers, are you Christians?” The man was a Spanish priest, named Jerónimo de Aguilar, and he had been shipwrecked 8 years earlier in 1511. During his time on the Yucatan this man had become fluent in various native languages. Cortés immediately employed Aguilar as his interpreter and it would be this ability to communicate that would grant Cortés his first advantage vital to the success of his expedition.
