Back in mid 2020 Supersick_ burst onto the LEGO Pirates MOC scene with this upgraded 6285 Black Seas Barracuda, he named “Big Orra“. This was just a small taste of what was to come!
Frigate Barracuda “Big ‘Orra” – during quarantine I ordered 2x @lego 21322 Pirates of Barracuda Bay and built my first MOC from the combined pieces. The original released in 1989 -and the whole pirate theme – was a huge part of my creativity as a kid and it felt great to do an early-18th century frigate homage to the Black Seas Barracuda.
Her sails are full, her hull is sleek and she lives up to her Barracuda name. She carries 16 main cannons on her gun deck, another 6 lighter shot on her weather and quarter decks and 2 bow chasers for a total of 24 guns.
About the Builder…
Supersick_ (Lindsay Ross for those who prefer real names) made a splash in mid 2020 when he debuted on the LEGO Pirates scene by sharing some awesome MOCs in the Classic Pirates Facebook Group. Since then, he’s joined the LEGO Pirate MOCs Forum and posted some great ships, including the Fer Maiden and Barracuda Brig, not to mention he’s provided some fantastic advice to other ship builders.
