Thanx Blackpearl! That was sooooo cool! I don't have the parts but I think what you and macgyver did is awesome! I'll try to think something like that with what I have!
Thanx!

A larger ship wouldn't be much more expensive than e.g. a dollhouse. Of course, you would have to spend probably twice to three times as much as for the current ship - but you would also get ten times more fun.

I like the idea of an expandable ship with a second deck or a middle part as an add-on.

I would definitely sacrifice flotation - I normally don't expose my ships to water...

Yes, we have huge castles, huge schools and hospitals, huge dollhouses. Why not huge pirate ships? Especially if they were extendable. I think we can feel free to dream!

In the end, we will conserve only what we love. We will love only what we understand. We will understand only what we are taught.

The compartmenting would indeed be a very good idea if Playmobil would decide to design a new large ship and offer collectors the possibility to make a bigger / huge one.

I'd already be satisfied if Geobra would make a kind of production version of the "Unicorn"; it needs some worthy opponents without all the necessary labour/skill/time of making these ourselves.
Such an extended version of the 3286/3940 - which gives room for a 3rd mast and a few more canons - seems the most "realistic dream" to me.

I do believe this simplified "new ship" idea would totally be doable for Playmobil.  Don't know why they haven't already.  Probably cost close to US$200, much like the big castle.  I still can't believe the abominable 4290 costs US$100.  Even the superior 3286/3940 originally cost far less at US$80 or so.
Ahoy, Pirates, Hoist the Colours!
