Dear Ye Olde Republic,
first of all, I love all your creations, you are a great builder, surely much more than I will ever be.
Thanks a lot for your comments, they will help me to progress for my next models.
I agree with you, but my first wish was to create an architectural model of the Krak as similar as possible to the original one and "breathing life" wasn't my purpose. My attention was concentrated on architectural details, shapes, layout. I'm fascinated by the building itself definitely, it's the true star! I tried to put some minifigs inside, but I confess that my stock in minifigs and barrels is very limited, please don't forget that Krak is my first creation, so I need time to buy furnitures!
However, I don't agree for tan colour: I assume that the true colour of Krak is more near to "yellowed white" than tan, especially if you look at it from a little distance.
I think tan bricks are more indicated for my next model whic will be Belvoir Castle, another Crusaders and Hospitallers' castle, but I cannot build it in tan because I don't have any ones! It's a big investment (5 or 6,000 USD) which I cannot afford, so I'll recycle my white bricks.
See you soon for this new model!
Non nobis, non nobis Domine, sed Nomini Tuo da gloriam!
