The Black Pearl pirate ship is one of our most popular Metal Earth models. Now ICONX offers a larger, more detailed version. ICONX can squeeze even more laser-etched detail on 4" x 8" (10.16 x 20.32 cm) metal sheets. Pop out the pieces by hand (or use wire cutters to get especially crisp lines), bend the tabs using needle-nose pliers, and fit them together as shown in the simple pictorial instructions.
The Black Pearl is a moderately challenging ICONX model from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. It consists of about 38 pieces on two sheets of metal. Assembled, it measures 5.75"L x 1.75"W x 4.5"H.
Please note that Iconx models have sharp edges and are not suitable for small children. Recommended for ages 14+.
Are you curious...?
One of the most distinctive looking pirate ships (and most popular models) didn't really exist. The Black Pearl is the fictional "nigh uncatchable" all-black ship from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. It derives its great speed from the amount of sail that it can spread and is said to be the only ship that can outrun the Flying Dutchman.
In the first movie, the Black Pearl was actually a steel barge with a wooden superstructure. An actual, floating sailing ship was built on the hull of the HMS Sunset for the second and third movies, although it's not an actual functioning tall ship. In 2010, the Sunset was rebuilt to portray the Queen Anne's Revenge.
