Building Challenge #7

We're back in action with this week's Building Challenge!  We post a new challenge every Friday and we welcome YOU to play along with us.

Building Challenge #7 - Micro Medieval
We're going back to some small-scale building (mostly because it doesn't take too long!).  This week we challenged ourselves to build something in the castle/medieval theme in microscale.  I'll share my inspiration model first this week - the Medieval Mountain Fortress.

I'm pretty happy with the way the drawbridge came out.  And I like the banners on the front and side.

The gray rocky base is a LEGO element - it came in a Coast Guard-type set, if I remember correctly.

Next we have LEGOBoy, with his Saxon Castle.

This is the sort of early castle that the Saxon people built after the Norman soldiers conquered their territory.   (Source:  LEGOBoy)

There's a moat running around it and a stockade wall.  The building with the yellow straw roof is the bailey.  In the far corner is the lookout tower.
