About this creation








Hey everybody



I consider myself a castle builder, but I have never build a castle in the real sense of the word, so I thought it was about time I build one.



As I’m working on a big display to my LUGs expositions (comunidade 0937) and having access to a lot more parts I could go a little wild. :)

This MOC stands on a footprint of 4x3 (48x48) baseplates and is more than 3 feet high. I had a clear idea of what I wanted to do since the beginning, but of course some modifications and adjustments were made along the build, such as the positioning of the various towers on the main walls or the shape of the half-timbered sections.



A few facts and thoughts that I would like to share:

-Its viewable from the 4 sides and completely modular so it can easily be transported.

-Despite having access to more parts, I still had some limitations. So, for instance, I had to use more LBG 1x2 plates and 1x2 masonry dark tan bricks on the walls that I wanted but nevertheless I think it turned out Ok all the same.

-The colors used on the landscape terrain are not the ones that I would like to use, but again, due to its size, I had to use more common ones.

-I build this at home and took me about 250 hours in 50 or so days to build this MOC.

-I have no idea how many parts it’s made off! If someone as a rough idea, please let me now. But I can tell you that just on the landscape alone and on the castle interiors I used around 10000 2x4 bricks of various colors and on the walls I used at least 4000 round 1x1 bricks.

-The landscape was not my priority as it will sure suffer some changes and adding’s when integrated on the full display so I spend just 5 days on it and is not yet as I want him to look.

-Also, the trees are somewhat simple as I need them to be brickbuild (for easier transportation and also due to time restrictions) but I kind like them that way.



-Naturally, I’m a BIG noob in taking good pics and these are total crap (overexposed, poor lighting, poor focus). Taking reasonable ones was a huge #$#/&%$ pain and it looks so much better in person :)

Hope you all like it. It sure was an immense fun to build these one :)



I will try to upload more pics in a few days before I get this huge thing in card boxes :)

Amazing: Arrangement of architecture, angled items, likelyness appearance, beautyfull landscape, surrounding buildings, a good main entrance, nice blue roofs, great rockwork! I am only a bit confused about the fussy stonewalls, they seem a bit too much, better a bit flater; nevertheless it's too late to change that, and also the castle looks like it's out of an very interessting farytale... Most welldone!

I love the roof work on this, especially the one that juts out from the tower it sits upon. Also, I know you were less pleased with the colors you used, but I rather liked the color scheme. Wonderful castle, sir; I can't wait to see more pictures of it in close up!

Thank you all, for the comments and kind remarks. And do, the castle doesn't have interiors. When I said interiors I meant the structure that supports the castle.Sorry, guys... :/

This Castle is truly amazing, I have never anything like it. The wall texture and the leaning rooftops are so beautiful. It`s such a pity that your Pictures are such poor quality. I hope you upload some better ones.

While I was starting to get tired of seeing this rickety technique used by many builders over and over for houses, it is really cool to see it utilized for a large castle. Very well done, and Great work keeping it view-able from all sides. I think you've become the new master of this style.

A really good work. Such a Castle can be seen otherwise only in wonderland film. A dream for everyone who likes the architecture and beautiful textures. I can think of at the moment only one word for your work. overwhelming
