The Grander Keep
About this creation
This is the next stage in my big-building evolution of castle modelmaking. Built late December to early January 2007-8.

It is built in modular sections that enable the model to be broken down for transport, but in a completely different way to the previous keep models. The walls of the keep separate and each folds in half enabling compact storage. The roof, turret-tops, front-wall-piece and steps all come away, as do the internal arched supports which hold the roof up.

The model is very brick-intensive, totalling 11,500 parts. A single wall section contains about 3,000 - 3,500 parts. Due to my maintaining other models using bricks of the tan colour at the time of the construction of this the rear wall section is a minimal top piece so that the keep looks complete from the top, but the internal void can be accessed from the gap left by not placing a full wall section on the rear.

This model was displayed to other AFOLs at the Cosham house fest in January 2008 and was demolished shortly afterward as there was no place for it in the planned public displays of 2008.

As an idea of size, it has been described as a potential washing-machine cover!





























Dismantling the keep into sections for transport. This can be done rapidly.

You know, you keep making these bigger and bigger keeps, but did you ever think that soldiers of that time period neither had the time or technology necessary to build such a forteress? I really don't think it is reasonable to think that they would have had a need for such a huge keep, or had the necessary rescources to build it available. Nevertheless, splendid job on this.

Love it, very very very impressive. Love the concept of panels/sections for dismantling.
