My own version of The Black Pearl. I wanted to make a proper sized ship from the original set so I just expanded out until it looked right.
About this creation
I'm two ships into a whole fleet of ships based on the vessels from the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies. I was really disappointed with how small the Black Pearl Lego set was and felt the most famous ship in the Caribbean needed to be grander. The length of the ship doubled and I added a main deck over the regular gun deck. I still didn't want the ship to look pristine. After all Captain Jack loved the Pearl but he wasn't always nice to her. The most fun I have with models is customizing minifigs. So not only does The Pearl have the A listers from the movies but I included Pantel, Ragetti, Cotton, Marty, Thea Doma and a couple of random crewmembers.
Thanks for the suggestion. I'm using my phone to upload pics but they are too small. I'll look into it. I did have a lot of fun with the figs. Customizing minifigs are some of the most fun for me on these projects.
