A Castle Overlooking a River
This is the first realistic castle that I have built.
About this creation
After sorting all of my LEGO pieces by part over winter break, I spent the last part of break building this. This was relatively challenging for me because I had never built something like it before. The whole thing is built on a 48x48 stud baseplate and the castle is built on a 36x36 baseplate connected to the top of the rocks. It was trick to securely attach the baseplate to the top of the rocks, but I achieved it. All in all, I really like the way this turned out. Enjoy!

Quite good for your first castle. Some suggestions: You should put a few support columns in the ground floor to support the baseplate so it doesn't bend. Also, try to avoid flat vertical faces in the rockwork, use angles as much as you can. This will make it more realistic.

That's a very cool castle. I like all the details you put in it and it's overall architecture, which shows how much thought you put into this. Great work overall!

the only flaw in my opinion is the stones and green pieces at the riverbank. that looks kind of wierd, and dosn`t fit into the rest of the moc. Googbye :D

Nice work! I like the overall feel for the castle and the playability that you incorporated. I think to get rid of the look of the green plate resting on the rocks, I would bring the rocks out a little bit for a wider base and then build a little layer around the green plate so it's not so obvious. Also I would either fill in the brown around the stream with more 1x1 rounds for rocks or eliminate it all together to keep a more aesthetic feel. Anyway I hope this kind of helps and keep building! - J.
