Three hours later I was done. I think they turned out rather well after all.
in retrospect I probably should have painted the coat of arms on that shield
before I glued it to the drawbridge....
can't build with wood and not use nails! next is chains and portcullises
there are an awful lot of windows and doors on this thing !
I really should have made a mold and cast them in resin, such is hindsight
