I had intended to do a castle version of King Kong (Clancy of course being Kong), with a giant dragon, bat and dreagle (dragon+eagle), as the bi-planes, but I ran out of time to build the dragon and bat, so here's the dreagle...

SlyOwl goes miniscale! Neat use of the flippers as roofing again ~ I'd love to see how they're connected!

I think it's wonderful. So much detail and all, it would have drove me nuts trying to do this, but now that I've seen it, it has given me hope that I could do something like this in the future. Great work.

Wow that roof is just incredible. I'm guessing that was not easy to do. Your part usage for the microscale is very nicely done! The Dreagle is also incredible. the beak using the falcon and the eyes are perfect.

All I can say is that`s fantastic MOC. The cart and the horse is for me the best part. Tower is too massive in relation to the rest, particularly in relation to the gate.
But still it`s very, very impressive :)

Thankee all! :D
I normally wouldn't reply to a thread this far down... but there are questions... questions that need answering... which I didn't see until now :oops:

Regarding the tower construction -
The bottom layer of flippers is clipped onto an exo-force trans bendy-thing (it came in the RIS 2.0) and the upper layers of flippers each have a 1x1 plate/stud/brick attached, and just balance on top. There's a core made of different sized wheels which keep the shape and distance between the flipper and centre regular. It's pretty fragile, but some combination of elastic bands or other bendy stuff and more clips (I completely ran out) would make it strongerer.

I just wanted to display it, as I don't really want to store it until I need it, and I'm not planning to use it in the CCCVI...

Very cool design. I love the use of flippers for the roof. It's always so amazing to see pieces that at first glance would seem useless be used in such a creative way.

Awesome entry. Its one of my favorites thats for sure! I do agree about the size of the tower though. But the tower itself looks very nice!
The details in this moc are awesome and really cleverly made.
