ye olde yellow castle
a tribute to the classic lego castle set #375
About this creation
this is my tribute to the good old lego castle set #375 which I got as a christmas present from my uncle more than 20 years ago.

I used the yellow color sceme together with the classic knights to build an enhanced version of the yellow fortress...

there are two towers and a house in the castle and an actual staircase for the knights to reach the second floor! a thing that was always missing in the classic sets.

today, the red knight is visiting the king...

Very cool! I like castles built on a rock foundation in the water. Keep up the good work!

That is really great! It looks like you had to canabalize one or two Yellow Castles(#375). The Sorceror looks very lively. I really like how you took pictures as you were building it.
