Gorgeous! I really like how both the exterior and interior are detailed! I also like that it can open up to make the interior viewable! :)

@Ferretclaw: Thanks :)

@Brickknave: Thank you, I'm going to have to try and incorporate more hinging sections into later MOCs :)

Even if this didn't hinge open it would still be a great castle. I have been back to look at this a lot. Great moc.

So cool! I love how it folds out and all the rooms on the inside. Very nice looking all in all too.

Thanks, I was quite pleased with the overall look myself, especially for not using any angled or curved sections :)

:twitch: You got some skills, man. For me, this is the style to aspire to...the interior layout is deceptively simple at first glance, but fits so nicely given the space limits. Love it!

Thanks! This is my fourth or fifth castle, and I learned quite a bit from the others. Now I want to try one at a larger scale :)

I really like the look of this. Playability is always something I look for in a MOC and the 32 x 32 design is perfect for working on that feature. I like how you made multiple hinge sections of the castle and having the castle come off the base is awesome because it allows you to make more landscape for it. Speaking of which, I'd like to see someone try to make modular landscape ;). The added little details are what really adds to the fun for both the viewer and the builder. One thing to keep in mind when going bigger is that it's hard to make interiors that justify the space. This is something that does me in every time. You have to go to a different level in your mind on what is acceptable for a minifig compared to what a real person would be comfortable with (if that makes any sense). Good job kid!!

Thank you, a modular landscape is an interesting idea. I think it's been done before for collabs :raiseone: Thanks for the tip on interiors :)

Hello,

a very smart and visual design. I love it, how the castle can be played from the inner.

Great job.

Kind regards,

BoB
