this all started because I get bored watching paint dry
that is just a primer coat, the Castillo will not be baby-puke brown!
the ravelin has a formal gateway, so I cut up some blue board and gave it a try
I felt things were going well at this point.....
....then I figured "what the heck, give it a go"
and this happened, the actual town gates look like this but are much larger
quilting pins provided the little ball at the top
and the pin makes sure everything stays together
by this point I was fully committed
due to an engineering error during construction the drawbridge wouldn't stay up,
so I had to add the lifting ropes
then I built a ramp to the ravelin access,
I just had to add a couple more of those cool towers
the drawbridge works (of course)
the source of my inspiration, the actual gates to the ravelin are pretty fancy too!
