    Does anyone have palm tree ?
    Can you tell me what peices I need to make one, you can’t buy whole ones on Bricklink, just the seperate parts and I am not sure what quantities I need of the peices to make a decent one.

    I’d like to make 6.

    Cheers.

    Not mine, but this is what I thought they always looked like. I guess the pieces are simply the 4 leaves and the brown thingys.

    I won’t post a pic since there’s one above:

    The parts are:

    • The palm tree base (a 2×2 no-stud tile with a palm tree section sticking up).[/*]
    • X number of palm tree trunk sections (variable; more for greater height).[/*]
    • The important part: the top of a palm tree has a four-way pointy thingy that goes into the top of the topmost trunk section and the leaves are attached to that. Couldn’t find a pic, but if you really need to see it, I can look harder.[/*]
    • Up to 4 palm tree “leaves”.[/*]
    • A green 2×2 tile, round (not pictured), which goes on top of the leaves..[/*]
    • A green 1×1 round brick (not pictured) which goes in the middle of the round tile.[/*]

    I rarely see the first on a palm tree and I’ve never seen the last one

    It was pretty standard on the pirate sets, but they were from the 80’s so you might be too young.

    See sets 6296, 6270 (you can just see it at the bottom of the big pirate flag), and you can quite clearly see it in set 6254.

    Edit: I still have 6260 – I found my monkey!

    I’ve always seen the first, and I have quite a few sets with palm trees. If it’s not there, the brown piece that holds the leaves together shows through at the top, and it looks funny. I haven’t seen the second one either, though.

    Does being in my 20s and getting my first set around 1987 count as too young..? I guess I never put those parts on cause they looked weird to me now that I think of it. Anyways, yes I had most of the pirate sets, if not my best friend at the time had the rest.

    As I recall the pieces were green most of the time, not brown. but ya, I guess I just needed a good kick in the rear with those pics AOO posted.

    Fantastic replies thanks.

    Good news is I have just bought two complete ones on eBay for 99p + £1.25 pp.

    So I can then order more once I know what I need and from the info above.

    Cheers.
