Castle work in progress update: the build 3
The 3 and final (the next one will be the final version) work in progress update. I added a well, the start of my wheat field and started on the round tower. Also finished the cliff and the rest I will finish after I order pieces.
About this creation


Here is my well. The finished version will be made of 8 of these in light gray, so I can get rid of the little holes, and make it look better (cause it looks like it really is a hole that goes really deep). What is so cool, is that turning the wheel raises or lowers the bucket!



Here is a custom crossbow boat I made to gaurd the coast. As you can see, it is going to be a crowny castle, and the dark blue boat fit well.



Here is my (lame) wheat field! This is one thing I will be ordering (a lot of) pieces for.



The start of the rounded tower of the castle (the back is supposed to be open, how else do the guys get in the tower to go to the top!). It will be much taller when I am done.



Here I tried to take a picture of the newly added (but almost always built) fruit bucket and cheese table. I know I kinda based this off of the medieval market village, but who cares? (I do NOT own the medieval market village, by the way)

HOW I BUILT THE RAMP


Okay, I was asked by Liam Ross "How did you build the ramp?" in the last update, so here ya go Liam!



Here we start out with a 4X12 tan plate with 2 2X12 green plates (I used some bricks and shorter plates because I ran out of 2X12 green plates :)). Then we make the other part by putting a 2X2 on top of a 1X2 hinge brick than attaching 2 1X2 bricks underneath (these can be any color).



Then we attach the hinge piece to the bottom of the plate, 3 studs from the edge



Now we attach the whole thing (I didn't to show you where to attach it) 3 studs from the edge of the landscape.



Finally tilt it at the angle you desire and build the rest around it! There you have it Liam, that is how you build the ramp (but if you use it, give credit please :)).

So, this was my longest update so far. I will not be posting any more, because the next thing I post about this will be (besides posted in a few months) the final model! This is turning out much better than I planned, and the rocks were a butt to make! Overall, I am satisfied, and if this isn't my biggest build yet, it never will be :)! Credit goes to Djimbo Legoist for the blue and yellow merchent stand, and here is the actual page!

The only thing I would definitely change is to swap out the white tall bricks at the shoreline for darker ones, grey or brown, unless they're going to be covered up eventually. And I like the ramp technique..
