Pirate Volcano by Ben Ellerman

As more coverage of Brickworld 2009 is released, Mister Phes finds us a great little scenic MOC, a Pirate Volcano created by Classic-Castle.com admin Ben Ellermann. Featuring a light up interior giving the effect of real lava (well, almost real) this nice MOC includes some great techniques including the use of 1 x 2 grey slopes to achieve a stunning random rocky effect.
