Thanks much, all!

This is gorgeous! I've really enjoyed watching the progress and now to see the final is even better. Is this, or at least a segment, going to BrickWorld? If so, we simply have to arrange a CC sigfig photoshoot inside this. I'm so honored that my sf has a prominent seat inside.
Alas, I won't be making it to Brickworld this year, after all. I just don't have the money, and I don't think I could raise enough through my Bricklink shop. However, had I been able to go, I would have brought the whole thing.
It's the only place fitting of little Bruce, I think.
It's such a treat to not only see the finished product, but to witness the planning/progress throughout the build as well. Your Castle creations have really matured over the years, Tony (and your train MOCs just started off amazing).
I think my time in trains has really given me a new perspective in building. Had it not been for that, I don't think I ever could have built this.

Considering the location of the photoshoot, I imagine you got a few compliments on it.
Solid job Sava, solid job. Complete attention to detail on all of it, and some great detail too. Love the windows and every aspect of the interior. My favorite thing about it all is that while it is a stunning build, it is also a build I can relate to. I can look at that and say "I could do something like that someday", some MOCs are great, but truly beyond my ability to comprehend, this one though rests just beautifully where I can enjoy it. Great work!
You would have thought so, but actually no one approached me. In fact, the few people that were there that friday morning kept their distance. LEGO is scary, I guess. Or I am.
I started the build with the intention of not going overboard. Sometimes builders put too much emphasis on the details, and the greater MOC gets lost in translation or the sea of detailed bits.
Beautiful! You know maybe its just me but you seem to build best when your using real buildings as your inspiration. This has inspired me to my very core, I'm rebuilding my castle's church. Only critique is the light bley is mostly alone without any other colors being integrated, but a very minor critique none the less. Great Job
It's actually a mix of old and new light grey. Most churches of this style, the two inspiration cathedrals included, have very little in the way of color variation in the stone used in their construction. Typically all contrast comes from the detail work and the textures given to the features.
Oh gosh this is amazing. I would like to see it on MOCpages though. (understanding time restrictions)
In due time, my friend.
