I like the new Pirates Ship very much, but while building I thought that some small mods and extras would make it even greater.
These I would like to show you.
If you have more suggestions or if you do like or do not like something of my mods, please let me know.
If you click on the pictures, you can see them in bigger size.
Some essentially features every ship should have: an anchor and a compass
I replaced the new style flag and map with the old style ones. Do you know why the new Pirate Sets have the map from Indiana Jones included? I thought Pirate's treasures are most times hidden somewhere near the sea and not in the mountains.
Then I replaced some of the building technic with what I think better looking one.
For example here, I used common slopes.
And the railing looks better with cones and plates instead these technic parts. Besides I decided that the space for 4 cannons in the middle of the ship should be enough and my pirates don't need another one at the back of the ship.
Between the two rigs I added a rope. Where else could the monkey hang comfortably and eating its banana?
And besides it looked so empty between the two rigs.
And a Pirate should have a Crow's Nest which is bigger than 1 to 2 studs.
The end result.
