Hello everybody, my name is Peter and my username here is Griffon.
I live in Friesland, the Netherlands and have, since very recently, got my old Castle LEGO from the attic :D.
I got to know there's a whole community behind it and i got enthausiastic again to make My Own Creations of Castle LEGO. I had already been active again building with LEGO but not with Castle.

My handicap is that i dont have many different colors to work with since i have Castle LEGO from the late 80's and early 90's so its mainly grey and black.

This is how i got it from the attic (i put it away in whole)

Happy building!

Hey, I noticed you also joined Lowlug recently :) good to see you on here as well. I've seen some of the Castle MOCs you've been working on over at the Lowlug forums, and I can't wait to see what you'll come up with next.

Handicap? You must be mad clearly, for having those as your main colours is (seeing as this is a castle site) a gift, not a curse. But don't worry, being mad will make you fit right in. Welcome to CC and enjoy all that we have to offer.

Welcome to CC, Griffon.*

You are really very lucky to have those old sets. And they look to be in quite good condition as well.

Welcome

Welcome aboard, Gryphon!

Wow -- in one of those pix I saw at least 3 pitchforks; I spent $4 USD to get just one of those recently for my Job Muller MOC. Lots of very nice vintage stuff there! Everything that I have that is that old is ... very well played with. :)
I like LEGO Stuff. I have a blog called BricksABillion, a webcomic called The Brick Side, and I do some freelance artwork at Duckingham. And I am sad that there are only 24 hours in a day.

Welcome, Keeping your sets together and in such good condition was a good move. Looking forward to seeing your work in the future.
