The Castle of Brickwood Forest

From the project creator:

Hello brick lovers from around the world,

I'm very happy to present to you my latest creation.

It's a castle inspired by my previous project but it's much bigger.

This build has exactly 3000 parts and it comes with 8 minifigures :

A king, a knight, 2 soldiers, a queen, a princess, and 2 forestmen.

The Castle can be opened with hinges on both sides , a floor can be removed for better access, and the roof and be opened with hinges to give access to the king's chamber.

Inside the Castle:

  • fully detailed kitchen

  • throne room

  • drop door, that can be lifted up with a chain

  • prison

  • some room for storage to hold on during a siege

  • an escape door at the back of the castle

  • 2 round towers, one with a spiral staircase

  • a house built into the wall

  • a weaponry

  • a bedroom at the top floor with a balcony

  • a hidden cave with a treasure chest

Building techniques

The round tower that opens with hinges was by far the most challenging part. The lower hinges had to be placed upside down because of the bracket parts I used. Each individual section of the tower goes from 4 to 3 back to 4 studs wide.
