The possibilities of LEGO Digital Designer

Monday, July 14th, 2008

13-year old Neal McClatchey showed the Piratical world what could be done with LDD; his micro-scale version of the Black Seas Barracuda was even included in LEGO set 5525.

13 year old Neal McClatchey won the first LEGO Factory Design Competition!

 Discuss Neal's creation in the Pirate LEGO Forum

When faced with the daunting task of creating a model, many builders just give up, claiming to be victim to an inadequate brick palette, however, there are superb LDD Pirate MOCs.

Checkout LDD creations by our users:

Captain Cavinano's Black Pearl
Medib's Ship-wrecked Island
Joey Lock's Fort Laurence and HMS Unicorn

You could produce something like this, and what's more, you can also have the bricks sent straight to your front-door!

Click here to discuss the possibility of a new LEGO Pirates line in the Classic Pirates forum!

Mmmm...that soldier does look quite real!

Could this be the first picture of a new LEGO Pirate line? SirNadroj's photographs from the opening of the Chandler Store in Arizona provide a unique source of speculation and discussion about the future of Pirates; with the re-release of parts such as cutlasses and morion helmets, are they actually returning?
