I made this MOC for castle show-case at Svitavy exposition. Mostly it’s a final version, small changes will be done, one thing which I’m not satisfied with is the chimney. What do you think?

I quite like the chimney! :)

But I really like all of the textures in the MOC too, especially the roof as a whole. The fence too is absolutely sublime. :wink:

Very nice. I like the fence a lot and the roof is well done too. How are the turnstyle bases attached to the wall? I've seen that before but haven't figured out how they attach.

They are on normal tan plate which is fixed inside the house with this.

Hey Marian,

This is terrific. I particularly like the fence and roof designs, which are both new to me, and the clever scarecrow. The tree is also very well done. Too bad this wasn't a CCC entry, as it would very likely have done well.

Well done, I admire your attention to detail. The fence, the roof and the animals all caught my eye. I also like the use of plates in the stone foundation for the house. Good job.

Quite nice. :D Although, with every moc there is always something you can improve on.

By the way Sava I love your new avatar.

I know there is still place for improvements, but at Saturday I must take it on the exposition, and for my school duties I have no time to make it as I wish. :(

I really like the chimney as is, along with the rest of the roof; it really looke shingled.

I really like the roof & the chimney, those modified tiles really look great. Is there an interrior at all, or plans to do one in the future? That would be the icing on the cake. Other features I liked were the fence, scarecrow & the very realistic looking ploughed field - complete with vermin! Very pretty landscaping too. Well done

I think that the chimney is great. I also agree with Bruce, that if this were a CCC entry, it had a good chance of winning. Overall, a great MOC.

I love bucolic scenes like this, I want to live in the district you have modeled here. I love the roof, again someone has found a new way (at least to me) to do a roof, well done. The field and pond demonstrate your eye for detail, and that is very good. Are those the bottom side of turntables at the foundation line? This has a charming fairy-tale quality that I quite like.

VERY nice.

I love what you've done with the droid arms for fencing. I've never seen it before, but it is probably one of the nicest fences I've viewed. I'm equally impressed by your unique roofing.

The smaller details are also worth a look as you've produced some mighty fine chickens, and some good landscaping.

A great MOC that really stands out!

This is awesome. There is so much detail packed into it. The field is awesome, with the fence, and the scarecrow. Also, I like how you did the crops. The patern on the side of the house looks really cool, and the roof is neat. Overall, a great MOC. Thanks for sharing it.
