My younger brother made this scene, it's a gatehouse with a market and butcher's shop behind it.
He built it entirely by himself and the buildings have interiors.

He came up with this roof design on his own  :thumbup:

He would appreciate any comments or suggestions  :classic:

This looks really well!
It's nice to see how he did the roofs on the gatehouse/towers so that you can open them  :thumbup:
I like those signs in front of the butcher and the fishseller and those cheese wedges are a nice detail on the towers too  :classic:
Great job!  :thumbup:

Very nice! I dig the varied use of bricks with the log and round pieces. Also digging the signs. The only criticism I have is that I'd like to see a bit more color. Specifically some difference between the ground and building walls. Still, nicely done.

Thank you, your suggestion is a good one too. I actually mentioned that to him as well, so his next MOC will be on a green base  :thumbup:

;I feel bad for saying this, but the first thing I really noticed was the use of food bits on the sign! :laugh:  Then I started noticing other things, like how nice those stalls look! :thumbup:
