Tia Dalma's Shack

Newer Older

"No worries! Tia Dalma and I go way back... thick as thieves, nigh inseparable we are... were... have been... before..."
"I'll watch yer back."
"It's me front I'm worried about." -Jack and Gibbs

I've always loved Tia Dalma's shack from Pirates of The Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. It was no doubt inspired by the shacks seen on the classic Disneyland attraction in California. Wooden shacks on the bayou were always cool to me, so I just had to make this scene sooner or later.

I was also greatly inspired by _Matn's version of this scene. When I saw his depiction I knew this would be a fun scene to build. It was one of the many cool things from the film.

    This is practically a movie set, great MOC! So many awesome details, and I love your palm trees with the inverted tan bushes. What baseplate did you use under the water?

    Wow-eeeee!!! that's a generous amount of views and comments. Thanks all, I really appreciate it. I'm glad you enjoyed the creation. :)

    I connected a bunch of dark green plates together to construct the base. The dark green blends well with the trans-green, making it less noticable.

    I have a couple more I was planning on uploading, including a front shot of the shack. I'll see if I can't get those up soon(ish).
