Category: Bookends:

Design a pair of wickedly cool bookends. Show them off holding up your library of Barbie Fairy Princess books, or whatever you read.

Something I like to read about a lot is pirates. I also had a few pirate building ideas in my head that didn't make it into my pirates haven entry (either through lack of parts or because the idea came after the model) so it was quite natural for me to make pirate bookends.

Here's the story:

The party was on aboard the Flying Parrot, the flagship of pirate captain Anthony Quintor. Music played, sailors danced, and wine flowed freely. After many weeks of difficult sailing, the men at last had a stroke of luck. Cruising among the islands of the Caribbean they came upon a Spanish treasure galleon loaded with loot. After a short struggle, their ship was bursting with gold and the Spanish ship lay at the bottom of the sea.

Perhaps the pirates got a little too into the drinking, though. Most were out cold when the wind began to rise. None saw the large rocks loom up through the night. But they all heard the crack as the ship struck against the jutting breakers. Almost instantly the hull began to let water in at a rapid rate. In a few minutes, the ship had to be abandoned and the men swam to the shore of an island that lay only a little beyond the rocks.

When the sun dawned, the pirates rapidly went too work building a raft so they could haul stuff from the sunken ship to the shore. After a few hours of intense labour, they had a raft together that, while by no means beautiful, was sturdy and seaworthy.







The Captain and the Quartermaster inspect the sunken ship to see what can be salvaged.








The cook works to prepare some fish for dinner.




The pirates makeshift raft. This is one of my favorite parts of the whole model. I just love how the boards are spaced and how ramshackle it looks.




My pirate crew. From left to right we have: the drunk seaman, the Quartermaster, the Captain, the Boatswain, and the Cook. I'd be interested to know which is your favorite.

Thanks for viewing! Rates and comments appreciated! ;)

This better grab at least a few 5s... awesome work, dude! The trans-clear for water looks great here and as usual your small details make this. The campfire, shipwreck, and raft are all incredible! Great rocky shore, too!

Unique bookends. The wreckage and raft are spot on. The palm trees are really well done. Too bad they didn't land near Sparrow Manor. Captain Jack would have treated the crew to a feast.

Quoting Mark McPeek Great work, Finn! I would so use these as bookends!
I'm glad to hear it! I would probably use them too... If they didn't contain so many parts I use all the time.
