A while ago W. Navarre revealed this ship as a part of a nautical diorama that was a modern re-interpretation of an original LEGO Pirates set. However, he decided that the diorama did not do the ship justice, and has chosen to photograph it now on its own. There is a lot to love about The Black Death, most notably the sails made out of all sorts of multi-angled pieces in an eye-popping dark red, as well as some very interesting shaping along the hull. Years ago, brick-built hulls were very common for small and medium scaled ships, but lately it seems to be becoming the norm.
Here’s the ship in the diorama, full of high-seas action and drama.
