Still 3D printing mine, hopefully in time for the Seven Years War Association Convention in South Bend next March.

Love this work…but where is the way in?

Anton's prior photos show he is faithfully modeling the Castillo de San Marcos, so the bastion with the larger watchtower is the San Carlos bastion. It is the northeast bastion of the castillo. You can orient yourself from there. The entrance is situated midway on the south wall, between the San Augustin (southeast) and San Pedro (southwest) bastions. The fourth bastion, by the way, is the San Pablo (northwest) bastion.

Here is a link to the National Park Service map:


Anton, your modeling work on this project continues to be outstanding!

I think we can all appreciate your statement about running out of "ahead"!

Truly a glorious project, keep it up!

First of all I must say that this is an outstanding work!!!
I'm no expert but living in Italy I had occasion to see a lot of Spanish fortifications on the Tuscan southern coast ( are around Orbetello, Porto Ercole and Porto S. Stefano) and my sensation is that the sentry post on the top of the rampart seems a little too massive.
I confirm that I'm no expert so I can be completely wrong!!
