Perhaps its an idea, if you still got the models standing around, to make views from multiple angles available.

First of all, these models are built to be seen from the same angle as the original idea book images. This is necessary in many cases because we have to guess on how to construct the back sides of buildings, castles, etc. I may add another photo of the farm house without the cart in front of it. It also takes a large amount of time to properly edit these images. Look for updates in the future.

The tower is the real winner of this first batch - very robust looking.

The weakest of the lot is a tie between the gondola and the inn. In a pinch I'd say the inn is weakest - it just seems to have been slapped together in a dimly lit room at 3am in the morning (perhaps after having spent several hours in an inn??? :wink: )

The castle is exceptional, the others a little ho-hum...

Ever since I first saw it, I've thought that the castle, if redone in black, is what the Fright Knights' Castle should have looked like.

PS - A shot of the castle from the back please!
