Hill Fort part 2

Construction continues. Cork bark has been inserted to make cliff faces and I have started the palisade. It looks like it does so I can prefabricate palisade sections and drop them in. One photo shows the posts that will hold the removable gatehouse.

Next step is to glue together lots of matchstick palisade sections! I may be some time...

Looks great so far Steve! Very well done.

Yes that's a great-looking piece.

Might it be worth making the tower removable, for storage?

Cheers, Simon

Enjoying watching this develop! Wish I had the skills for something like this!

The tower will be removable but the posts are probably going to be permanent as I think they'll weaken the polystyrene if they are pulled in and out too often.

I'd also hate anyone to think I have extensive modelling skills, just a few ideas and a talent for solving the problems that crop up due to not having a firm plan to begin with. To be honest I just bodge it as I go along!
