Can later material LEGO cloth sails (10210 Imperial Flagship etc) also be cleaned with Oxiclean?
Skulls_Eye_Schooner_Sailor posted a topic in LEGO Pirateshttps://imgur.com/gallery/fmc8y2a https://imgur.com/gallery/iByn5pc https://imgur.com/gallery/XzkKUbE https://imgur.com/gallery/g0wcamy We had a Biblical level infestation of flies some years ago, they are apparently attracted to things that are tall or high up, landed all over my Pirate and Imperial Navy ships. I've soaked and cleaned most of the sails with Oxiclean, except the Imperial Flagship, because I don't know if it is safe for that thinner, scrappier, stiffer material. I'm not sure what either version of the sails (and capes and flags) are made of, but I've soaked all the older style material with no issues, but I can't find anything about cleaning the later cloth material. I also didn't know sails could yellow until I read about it and saw the video posted here. The lower front sail on the Skull's Eye Schooner was slightly yellowed, and it was back to normal after an Oxiclean bath. https://imgur.com/gallery/o1hdAys For some fraying and unthreading sails on my childhood copy of the original Imperial Flagship, and some extra Armada Flagship and Black Seas Barracuda sails, I cut right at where the thread emerged from the sail, and carefully cut off some threadbare unraveled sections that are prime for more fraying. Hopefully cutting those off will stop that. The childhood Imperial Flagship sails are going to get soaked too. They were in a shed at my grandma's old house that had holes in it and got very dirty! I'm just glad those sails and the other two hull sections were there! I thought I had lost them! How would you lose such giant parts haha. I hope to be more active here again from now on! And don't worry, no second dark age here. I have a good ten years worth of MOCs and grown collection of sets and bulk parts to share. I have so many parts from childhood and adult sets, bulk collections, eBay, Pick-a-Brick, Bricks & Pieces, and Bricklink orders, I can sit down and pretty much build whatever I want to my heart's content, and I've got a dedicated hobby room and big work table with a bunch of bins now. There's also model trains, slot cars, die-cast, and retro games in that same room. :) Happy to be back and thanks ahead of time for any help and advice on getting my Imperial Flagship back on the open sea again!
Imperial Flagship (10210) Bow Strengthen Mod
Lord Valgor posted a topic in LEGO PiratesHey guys, Quite a long time ago I posted my IF Mods here on these forums. I mentioned that I was able to make the SNOTty section just as sturdy as the rest of the ship, but I didn't show how. Well today I got a little less lazy and decided to take the photos and explain what I did. The modifications are quite minor (so much so I don't know why TLG didn't do it from the get-go), and they don't seem to affect the look or style much at all (the best mod I did was "under the hood" so it could look almost exactly the same). At any rate, you can see my bow mods Here :). Anyways, just thought I would share so let me know what you guys think!
For Sale - Lego 10210 Imperial Flagship
Captain Heineken posted a topic in Buy, Sell, Trade and FindsHi, I'm planning to sale my Imperial Flagship. Because I move together with my girlfriend and she's not really into Lego, I want to sell it with a heavy heart. It's 100% complete, in very good condition. Box and instructions in excellent condition. It wasn't played with, just stood on my living room's shelf. I'm located in Germany, would ship worldwide. I'd prefer Bank Transfer, because of Paypal Fees. Pictures can be seen here: https://www.flickr.c...57652220182852/ Feel free to ask questions. If you are intersted in buying PM me. Cheers Sebastian
MOC: New Take on Caribbean Clipper
lomis posted a topic in Pirate MOCs[pid][/pid] LDD/MLCad 12A I just started using LEGO Digital Designer and wanted to try to make something new but with some classic touches. I started by trying my hand at creating an updated version of 6274: Caribbean Clipper using modern methods and parts. I wouldn't consider this "original work" per se as it's more a modification of several different parts of other ships than anything else But I think the result is nice and thought I'd share. The components of the ship include: Most of the bow and shortened hull of the 10210: Imperial Flagship Modified rudder and masts from 4195: Queen Anne's Revenge The cabin from 4184: The Black Pearl Obviously, I've also made color changes here and there and for the sake of getting some sort of a representation of sails - I've "borrowed" the sails from BBQQQ's LDD Pirate Ship Sail Parts (Brick-Built) post. Here are a few pics... The main view: Front view: Rear view: Deck and Top of Bow: UPDATE: I've updated the pictures above and am adding the download for the .lxf.
