Knight's Outpost
The Knight's Outpost was actually my first model that I created with LDD. ... Unlike the parapets I remember from my first Lego castle ... the one in this model is easily accessible by both ladder and stairs.
About this creation
The Knight's Outpost was actually my first model that I created with LDD. After DesignByMe priced it out at over $200, I went back to the drawing board and created the Roadside Lookout. =)

This small 3 level tower contains a lounge on the first floor, a couple of bunks on the second floor for catching some Zs during the battle or siege, and a parapet on the top. Unlike the parapets I remember from my first Lego castle:

which were fit only for superman or a really good pole vaulter, the one in this model is easily accessible by both ladder and stairs. There is also a small stable where you can tie up your horse.

And of course... it is designed to swivel open so you can play with it from the inside.



Now... on this next pic, let's see if you can spot the continuity flaw:



I got tired of trying to render this one out with Povray, so the resolution on the model doesn't actually match the background.



I keep hoping the LDD will finally add a custom background capability to the preview mode. This would make rendering in PovRay more practical because you could be certain you had the angle of your model view correct *before* you spent 3 or 4 days rendering it. =)
