3 years since the latest review of this great set another one !
One of the smallest Castle's but really one of the best if not THE best. Esspecially the simplicity makes it a great castle to build.
Building these old castle's is big fun because all of the small bricks you have to use. Some wall parts and towerpanels of course too, but mainly small bricks; I love it !! No big base plate, just small green plates that allow you to "reshape" the castle. The blue flag with the Black Falcon shield is great, I replaced the front yellow flags once for Black Falcon shields which makes the Fortess look even more great.
Parts used in this set like said before mostly small parts but what I love most of this set are the yellow parts and the black roof. Missing here is a mechanism to pull up or lower the drawbridge, but that's really the only small "flaw" of this set. The set comes with 2 Knights on horses and 4 soldiers, sufficient for a Castle this size.
I like this set so much that I must admit I have 2 of it and 1 re-released 10039.
Value for Money: 5/5
Alternate models: 5/5
Play Experience: 5/5
