Dear all, First, let me introduce myself ! I'm a Belgian fan, member of BELUG since 2015, but fall again in LEGO since 2010. I've already made some exhibitions with 2 large dioramas, one about the battle of Waterloo 1815 (with J.L. Hornblower), and the other about Old Castle Black Falcon's Fortress. It is a pleasure for me to submit my Caribbean Fortress 1762 It's a WIP, I'm planning or not to add another floor on the main building + an harbor, docks, shipyard, isles ... Thanks in advance for your feedbacks and comments !!

Hello everyone at Classic pirates, I would like to present my new MOC, as you can see from the following images, it is a pirates island. «Old forgotten guard tower, known as La Torre Olvidada is located somewhere in the Caribbean. For a long period it has belonged to the Spanish armada. After a long siege it has been abandoned, and some years after the Capt. Cristóbal and his men found their hideout there. When they aren't busy drinking rum, they take off from there to steal the gold, using the island as the storage for their loot.» I hope you will like my island, more photos can be seen on my Flickr.
[pid][/pid] 251B Hello again ! I had not wrote a new thread here since months ... The blame for this has been what I brought in hand from about makes about 6 - 8 months... I present to you this diorama seen at LEGO Catbrick Event in Barcelona. The Fortress of Santa Catalina, located in Puerto Rico, in the heart of the Caribbean. Erected in the sixteenth century, was the first fortification built to defend the city of San Juan and the first in a series of military forts. Construction was authorized by King Carlos I of Spain as a protection against the attacks of indians, corsairs and pirates. Eastern tower section. Jungle and river. Pirate prisioner on courtyard. For its construction I used about 35,000 pieces. In theory it is not right either a MOC, I should label it as a WIP, because the original project is a quarter of a much larger diorama than this. This portion, is 6 x 4 baseplates and the final project will occupy 12 x 8 baseplates. Gradually I will try to finish it. I 'm uploading to flickr the rest of the gallery, so I recommend that you see there the rest of photos and see the details. (If you click on image you will be redirected to flickr) I wish you enjoy it! A greeting! EDIT: I add more photos!
Hey all! I don't build Pirate stuff often, but I am a fan of the theme. I am hoping to build something cool for my entry into the PTV contest (not quite sure yet if it's going to be Large or Small). I was hoping that some of you more regular Pirate builders would be able to direct me to some source pictures of what the architecture in Caribbean towns during the Age of sail would have looked like. Atthis point anything would be appreciated, from pictures of Spanish monestaries, and seaside castles, to pictures of villages or reenactments of the day to day life. Heck, even technical pictures of the architecture styles of the time would be great! Maybe even key phrases or place names to google! Thanks a bunch, mates! ~Insectoid Aristocrat
