Yellow Castle & related

Ever since i was a kid i always wanted the 1970's castle lego. about 5 years ago i purchased a bulk lot off Ebay that had most of the hard to find pieces for the 375 kit. So i decided to rebuild it like new, i used all new bricks where i could, reprinted all the stickers .
Since i finished the 375 kit i found some cheap 383 & 677 kits, lucky both were like brand new.
After completing the set i started with the 6000 ideas book. and after i finished i still had a few yellow bricks left so i made one of the alternate castles on the 375 box.

The alternate versions have been reverse engineered from pictures in Lego Ideas book 6000 from 1980, pg75 onwards. The peeron link below will take you to scans of the book.

Each have their own personal favourites, usually tied to their childhood. My heart lies with the original grey castles from 1984. It's not whether one castle is better than another, it's about the emotions that they remind you of.
Whilst 375 Yellow Castle may not be my favourite I can appreciate the effort that Lacara has put into creating it and re-creating the alternate models. The whole ensemble looks really good, especially the service buildings like the stables and the viewing tent for the jousts. From those models you can see how they evolved into the modular sets of the grey castles such as 6067 Guarded Inn, 6041 Armour Shop and 6060 Knight's Challenge; a lineage that carries on through to 10223 Kingdoms Joust.

Though I would never MOC like that, I love more modern style, but that's very good that different people have different interests.
