Hey guys! Here's a MOC partly inspired by my vacation to Charleston, SC. I visited the Provost Dungeon where the "Gentleman Pirate", Stede Bonnet was held. Charleston was even blockaded by Blackbeard himself when his crew was in need of medicine.
So here's my MOC of a pirate about to be hung.
The soldier is reading the pirate's list of crimes.
Some townspeople have come to watch the hanging. Public hangings were popular entertainment back in those days! :D
The steps up the scaffold.
The townspeople again.
Some random crates and barrels under the scaffold.
Here's the hatch. It really works!
You just pull the lever out and...
Tada!!! You've hung the pirate!
The rope is even a lego rope too! :D
Here's the whole thing again!
Well, thanks for visiting! Please leave a comment! :D
Nicely done! The gallows look great. In fact, I have family in the Charleston area and have been down to the Battery many times and probably have been to where you're referring to as well. Nothing like watching a pirate dancin' at the end of a rope to get your morning off to a great start.
