Our article, which will be in two installments, focuses on the castle creations of 260 Idea Book which was released in 1990. Many of the 23 creations will be discussed. Each one has been built and photographed to the best of our ability. We recommend using pieces from sets available in 1987-1990 but pieces can also be found in sets from other years.

Discuss the article and what you think of these creations.

Excellent job guys!

I love all these creations. Thanks for presenting them in a better format. It's way better to see them by themselves, unencumbered by background images and such.

I don't really like any of those creations...except for maybe the *Forestmens Tree*...and the farmhouse was nice as well...I mean it's so small but look at how cool it is...

My copy of the book is falling a part, but luckely, the castle pages are alright!

I love that castle, one of the greatest I've ever seen. Wish I had the parts to build it all.

I have that Idea Book and always loved the castle creations
in them, especially the one with the drawbridge. I never knew how to build it though. Will there be instuctions for these put up?

I also like the castle and the cart, and are the instructions available anywhere? You can never have too many ideas and inspirations.

Way to go guys. You did a wonderful job especially considering that the pics are small and in the background. I love Tudor in and the Farmer's house.

YAY!

LEGOs are super fun. hahahahahah!

Some instructions are available in the actual idea book. At this time we are not planning to make instructions for these mocs. However, by looking at the photos and using parts from the sets we suggest, you should be able to make them. Perhaps in the future when we do not have as many other projects, we may make instructions.

Glad to see the Idea book Parade continues. I always liked this idea book and the farm house was one of the first creations I made without the aid of instructions. Keep up the good work. :D
