Fort Robidoux
« on: October 17, 2017, 09:17:55 AM »
 Fort Robidouxl



a new project
I found this painting by alfredo rodriguez which represents the fort robidoux, which inspires me.
the painting does not show many details of the fort, which will leave a great deal to my imagination ;D.
I still have no idea about the size, but it should be small

thank you for the information but I remain on my image as inspiration because I do not want to make an exact reproduction (just my own version)

Looking good.  :)

I'm intrigued about where you got the poles from.  Are they just twigs from the garden or do you have a special source?
