The fact that it ready for display while being unfinished is a testament to how great this build is.

It looks awesome. It added more life to the land by the way you had workers constructing the castle.

Here are some additional pictures of the construction zone done a few hours before the convention.
I didn't have the time to complete this so they are without minifigs.
But this is not bad. You can see the details better without them  :wink:

Simply brilliant. I love the look so far. Great attention to detail and the aesthetic is very pleasing.

I can't wait to see more. This makes me want to do something similar, but I lack time.

How do these work?  In real life I mean.  I've never seen them before.

Awesome build!  I love the WIP pics of a WIP castle.

Yes I will.
But I can't repeat this nowadays. There is another big build for me to do before.

It is like TheMagician said. Peoples walk inside the wheel to rotate a windlass. Forwards and backwards to lift and lower the weight. It was a dangerous but well paid work for the middle age.
