Eldorado Fortress, micro-scale
Posted 07 March 2010 - 09:43 AM
I've been working on a refined version of the micro-scale Eldorado Fortress that appeared in my mini-golf themed PV2 entry. 6276 Eldorado Fortress is one of the oldest sets I have, and it's one of the few that's still fully built back at my parent's house. Needless to say, it's a classic set and one of my favorites.
There are more pictures on flickr.
And in case you've forgotten what 6276 looks like:
I'm pretty happy with it, but I'm open to suggestions. I have mixed feelings about the parapets; I think the cheese slopes work well above the arch, but I'm not sure I like the modified 1x1's with clip (they seem to be a common way to do parapets in micro castles though). I also need to take the time to make a better flag -- that one's starting to look a little ragged. Anyways, comments and criticisms welcome!

I will only have respect for redcoats when they actually make a "General Redwater's amazing bleach!"

Eldorado Fortress is my absolute favorite Pirate set, and this rendition of it in micro form is just incredibly accurate!
Excellent job Pellaeon!

"We shall defend our island whatever the cost may be; we shall fight on beaches, landing grounds, in fields, in streets and on the hills. We shall never surrender and even if, which I do not for the moment believe, this island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, will carry on the struggle until in God's good time the New World with all its power and might, sets forth to the liberation and rescue of the Old."

You have made a well done micro version of Eldorado Fortress, with good proportions.

Now you just need a micro-scale pirate ship to go with it.

... actually, Captain Zuloo gave credit to some guy named Pallaeon, but my username is hard to spell.
Thanks again, folks! Glad you enjoyed it.
