I picked up most of the bricks in a large lot of lego so i had all the hard to find bricks, and i purchased brand new bricks where i could. the castle turned out really nice. I also had a problem with the original stickers so i scanned in the old ones and redrew them in Illustrator.
Once i had finshed the 375 set, I started on making the castles from the 6000 ideas book. below are the photos i have of the smaller castle
About a year after that set i finished the big castle, i have not taken any photos of it yet, if i get around to it i will post them up here.
I had always wanted the 375 set and i must have studied the 6000 book for years as a young child. It is really rewarding to have something that you wanted so much as a kid.

I actually played clean-up with this set a number of years ago myself (at least 6 or 7 in fact, maybe even longer).
The result was this:
Made new stickers for the original figs - think I got the decal prints from Classic Castle:
Even made a classic-style display to show off the figures:
It's great to see your Yellow Castle - long live Classic Castles!
