Thanks for your opinion AK, and please don't ever hesitate to tell me if you think something could be improved.
I will have to experiment with what you recommended for the hinges.
I kind of agree with you on the tower being placed on the outside, instead of in the river, I think it would make the river look better as you have pointed out. But it would have been trickier doing the angled bridge, as I attached it to the pillar of rock. Something to keep in mind when I design my next MOC though, I think it will be LCC related (quite possibly even the 1st Mason Guild challenge)
Thanks for commenting on my website too
Yesterday and today it was done for a little, I will have to see if something is up with the server or what
