Black Pearl in 3D in Google Earth

Black Pearl in Google EarthOver the holidays, ‘jpwade’ (who has contributed many 3D models to the GE Community) posted a 3D model similar to the Black Pearl ship from the movie “Pirates of the Caribbean“. He also implemented a time animation showing the ship sailing about in a bay in the islands. Load the Black Pearl model (you must be using GE 4) and hit the “Play” button (a right arrow triangular button on the right of the time slider in the upper part of the screen). Pay close attention to how it animates at the beginning. It seems his version of the Black Pearl has capabilities similar to the Flying Dutchman. Thanks Joey!
