The Black Pearl (version 2)
I have quite a lot of spare time for building now so i decided to redo one of my biggest layouts ever- The Maelstrom battle from Potc 3- new Pirates is coming 2011 and it inspired me also- oh i hope lego will release potc line next year- anyway i made Pearl of my own... this baby took nearly a month to finish because weather was so darn hot- even here in Finland... now it's ready- but i fear that Dutchman will take nearly an another month....
About this creation



as you can see- my "studio" was too little for her
...

As title says this is version 2- my previous Pearl was in fact bigger than this but i disliked it's blocky shape- this one is more shiplike i think....







side of the ship- i invented new technique for ship hull :D and then custom cannons... lego should make smaller cannons i think...

Bow- i know it could be more accurate but i didn't have better slopes or curved parts- also i though that purist built angel figurehead is better than some custom one- wings are too big but best wings i have... and yeah pigeon should fly too... but lego never made flying bird part...




windows of stern were hardest part of the ship- i didn't have right kind of windows so i had to improvise... also i didn't have enough little arches... so i used inverted slopes... not entirely accurate but best i could do...


my first Pearl had bigger deck but well i still think this is better...
capstan turns around if there is no cannon near it... well i didn't had enough space for all cannons this time...

capstan as hoist- it don't really work very well though....



door for captain's cabin

lanterns and decorations of stern...

another side has no real cannons...

Stern- ok i know window's shapes are wrong... but side windows were too small so i though that i will make back windows bigger... i didn't had good parts for those windows so i used square shaped ones and added arches above them.. ok not perfect but best i could do...

rudder...


without figures

jolly roger
masts


topside of the poopdeck (as it's really called XD) can be removed and it reveals captains cabin- there is table like we see in the movies and well apple for Barbossa of course....
wheel and bell...


a deck... pretty cramped... but ships really were
I like this grate technique- grates are too thick but look good- and they can be removed...


here is lower deck- i built interior to be as accurate as possible... but because it's so hard to take this thing apart it's easier to show insides before i made masts and all.... so i pictured insides already when building them


Jack's rum cellar
and ship's brig for prisoners....

and even a little kitchen :D



army of custom minifigs i made... i am not best in customizing them but i had to... they turned out pretty well actually... at least i think so... surprisingly well for my figs
Will and Elizabeth - Will is older one i made for smithery... Tamina will do for Liz.. she is only one without custom face.... decal is chinese outfit she used during that battle...

Jack is older fig too and new Mr. Gibbs.. he is bit pale though...


Marty and Cotton -with his parrot of course.. ok - limegreen one was the best parrot i had



Tia Dalma- i don't really need her in my dio but i still made her- a sea goddess bound in legoform... :O

perhaps first custom fig of her made at least i haven't seen any....

Ragetti and Pintel (Ragetti has eye patch like he had during the maelstrom battle)

Barbossa- he is also older fig and Jack the Monkey too...

I even customized some equipment- well jack's compass is old one i made before- and Sao Feng's mystic map


There really is a map inside...


I changed the bow after those pictures here is the new one- now it's not as stubby as in those previous pics

I like the new front. Ouick question, how do you do the rigging. I'm working on this with my Black Pearl. Great job, still one of my favorite ships on mocpages.

Hoooooly cow! That's got to be one of the best ones I've seen so far! (which is saying something, there are some truly astounding Black Pearls on MOCpages) I've made my own version of it, it's not as big or detailed as yours but it's still pretty cool. It's not on MOCpages yet but i'll upload it as soon as I find my USB cord. If I could lend some advice, if you ever make a version 3, I would recommend trying using dark brown bricks instead of black. That's what I used, and it worked quite well. Still, very impressive model! 5/5!

Quoting Ben King nice, this is one of the best black pearls I have seen yet. I really like the stern detail near the lanterns, and it is too bad you had to use dark gray in certain areas but it still looks awesome. I agree with you when you said the deck is a bit cramped and besides that and the bow are this ship is quite accurate. Also I was wondering if you could post directions or something on the hull design because I would like to try it out if you don't mind. I only have hull pieces from a viking ship so I usually have to stick to brick hull and usually smaller ships, but I might have enough pieces if I use this technique!
Dark grey actually suits fine- even lego's official design that is upcoming has dark grey.... design itself is not very accurate though.... anyway you need bricks, plates and this kind of hingepieces http://www.findmybrick.com/product_info.php?cPath=57&products_id=3744&osCsid=3ed53fd97a10b1da8ffeddf0f3b3bc14 and you can figure out the technique i think :P

Quoting Billy Bob I know I've already commented, but what part do you think was the hardest to make?
hull- especially the part where my technique to make the hull meets my technique to make the bow- and i'm not really happy with that part but it's hard to do really- shipd are hard because of their shape....

Quoting Sebeus I Those hulls are amazing, haven't seen that before, and that grate technique, came up with that yourself ? anyway, the shape improved much, I think it should be wider, you can see it in the front view but I understand you can't fix that problem without completely demolishing the ship. the stern is a less good looking part but the rest is great, good job on the idol, accurate mast and sail constructions, nice doors to the captian, and good job on the minifigures
i've seen that grate techique before but i cannot say whose idea it was in the first place- thanks for commenting :D

Quoting rich . awesome ship and figs, and i hope they make lego POTC next year to. i saw the megabloks version and it didn't look that good. this is much better.
They may indeed release lego potc- preliminary captain Jack Sparrow- minifigure was spotted riding a camel (?) in the Prince of Persia diorama in San Diego comic-con- it was probably in joke and a hint that they are making potc in lego :D

Quoting Commander Striker™ That..... is..... AMAZING! I love it, but I think Will's face needs a change, he looks kinda creepy. =P
LOL- he actually looks blue in one pic but he is pale flesh like most of others- i don't think he needs changing though...

Quoting Flare . Cool ship! Excellent job! Although the decals for the faces really need to be fixed up and replaced.
well i cannot make them much better- my printer is not best possible- what do you think is the biggest problem with them? oh i hope they will release lego Pearl with officisl crew- so i wouldn't have need for custom crew... my customizing skills aren't that good you know...

Quoting El Barto ! Awesome and scary! I like those grates, too, good idea. Good job on the minifigs, looks just like 'em. Surprised Lego hasn't done this movies series. Excellent work!
lego hasn't done this because rights for potc was sold to megabloks instead- bad decision they're not as good as legos... maybe next year will bring us potc legos -hard to say yet...

Even though I have only seen small glimses of this movie, I think this is very accurate. Your mimifigs are(as I think) the best part of it and the map is also very detailed. Overall I would rate it out of 10: 9.99999 I slightly agree with the back windows but still,very good and very accurate.
