Hi Gentlemen

Some pictures of a Samurai castle made for a demo games sometimes ago: it is a really amazing piece for a wargame table.

Pictures are taken in a small garden at the Village Suisse in Paris.

Hope you will like it.

Not only is this castle beautiful/very beautiful, but its nice clean, simple straight lines make is something that could be copied. Even though I have a resin Samurai castle, this is the sort of thing that makes me think about the joys of scratch building.

C'est magnifique!

Is there a construction/modelling article somewhere?

I didn't see any construction information/directions. But despite the castle's beauty or, perhaps, because of it, the castle is composed of numerous simple shapes that would not be difficult to reproduce and then combine to form the larger structure. It's really a series of box shapes set next to and on top of each other. When I looked at the pictures on the link provided, I was very surprised and happy to see that there don't seem to be any complex curves or angles involved. For example, the roof is not curved as is the case with many of the Samurai castles I've seen. It would not be something that could or should be thrown together overnight; it would take some time and effort, but it does appear to be very doable.
