32x32 Yellow Castle

Postby Elephant Knight » Mon Sep 07, 2009 2:29 am

Well, better late then never, as they too commenly say. Here is my 32x32 Castle:

http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/ElephantKnight/Castle/Castles/32x32YellowCastle/32x32_yellow_castle_003.jpg

Not as fancy as most of the castles,(Or as big) but I wanted to keep as much to 375 as possible, and I think I did very well in that aspect.

Another pic:

Won't give you any more (Until the folder goes public, at least) becuase all the other pics are dark, as the lighting was going. and here is the folder in question: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=400490

Anyways, there you go. Please feel free to comment and/or criticise my work.

I think it captures the spirit of the yellow castle very well. Of course, I do think it's a good thing that Lego has moved beyond that style...

However, you did some nice work here. Keep it up.

This is a pretty neat take on the yellow castle. I'm glad you built it this way to fit on a 32 x 32. I like the gate house and big tower. I wonder if you could have built the tower to come apart for access? I can't wait to see the other pics of this. :)

Thanks for the replies!

QB: The grey floor on the big tower comes off with relative ease so I can get to the middle part of the tower, and the bottom part has no easy access. Though it isn't really worth getting into either room, for there isn't much in either room.

Well done, EK. It really has the feel of the original.

I'm liking it. Personally, I am not bothered by the idea of "yellow castle" as it adds color and isnt too far off base in some cases (I've been to several castles and early forts and most of them are not light gray).

I like the look, If I was a minifigure I think I could defend it from a siege. The interior is nice, as is the inclusion of a stable (I have always wondered about the lack of stables in official Lego sets). I like the buttressing, it fits nicely with the rest of the architecture. Finally, its brick-built so you cant go wrong there.
