Medieval Trade Port
A medieval trade port I made for a contest.
About this creation
This is a medieval trade port I built for a "construction toys" contest. The rules were that it had to rest on a 24 x 24 inch base and it could not exceed 24 inches in height. That is why it is so small. I equipped it with my Roman Legionnaires (5 of whom were stolen because of a lack of security at the contest).

   The tower can explode into sections to make set up easier.

   Below the tower is this court yard with a seafood shop, a fruit and vegitable shop and a drink stand.

   The bakery.

   The inside of the bakery. The chamber in the back is the oven. It has a door that pulls down.

   The treasure room in the tower. All the coins and gold bars I own are in there. Sad, yes?

   The crane. This is an old picture and the crane has since been moved to the dock on the side to make room for a large boat. Also, the crane is now bigger.

   This is the final lay out that I actually entered in the contest.



Enlarge image
   I changed around the docks so that it would meet the requirment of resting on a 2 ft x 2ft surface and still allow the boat to dock.

   I hid the tiles on the roof of the store house.

   I moved the crane from the center, to one side.

   My merchant ship.

   My last Legionarrie after the others were stolen. He survived because he was in one of the buildings.

   This pic shows how the crane can lift and drop when the wheel turns. Medieval cranes actually worked this way.

when I first came this page, the rating was 0/5. I was speechless and awe struck. How could that be I asked myself. It's such a fabulous creation. It's own little town with a ship to go with it! Incredible!!!!! How did your legionares get stolen? Someone just like come up and grab them? where were you? surley not in your house.

Hey Chad. I just wanted to express my absolute fury at the fact that some of your Legionnaires were stolen. I will be fuming about this for a while. What bugs me most is the fact that the little piece of **** will not be brought to justice. My condolences for your loss. Also as you already know I love the Creation.
