[MOC] Tribute to the Black Falcon's Fortress

Recommended Posts

Currently still on my wishlist, the 1986 Black Falcon's Fortress is one of those sets that was re-released for a reason: it's simple but epic. Therefore, I built a small castle for these cool and mysterious guys that surely would make them feel right at home.

Overview shot of the fortress, located on a small peninsula.

Two guards stand.. well.. guard, at the main gate as a patrol party returns to the castle. For one of the guards, this means relief from his duty and off to dinner!

The courtyard has stables for some horses and a walkway along the battlements accesible via a door in the keep.

There's also a trap door with a staircase underneath...

..that leads to a hidden door at the rear of the castle where one could moor a small boat.

The rear of the castle with de hidden door clearly visible (heh :sceptic: )

The keep opens up, as a play feature..

I'm really happy with the composition of the castle, it's really compact and I find it visually pleasing.

On behalf of the Black Falcons, thanks for viewing, and don't tell anyone about the hidden passageway!

I really like the feel of this castle! The cliff-side look is excellent!

Epic and nostalgic are the most suitable words for the MOC. I've been collecting LEGO sets for more than 25 years now and I really mean those compliments. Keep on building!

This is excellent! I love the play features and the little fireplace is great. The Black Falcons would be proud. Keep up the great work!
