 Due to the current lock down I have started the construction of a castle that is years overdue.

Wow!  :-* That's a great piece of work.

Can I ask, is that foam mounting board with the backing removed or thin sheets of foamboard?

I'm in self isolation as of yesterday (the governments advice was rather sudden!) and it was all I could do to clean up one mini yesterday! I've set myself a target for today!

Looking good. 
I hope all is well in lock down.
We might need a thread keeping an eye on all the members who are in lock down or self isolation.

Looking good.  Just the sort of thing to do when in isolation.  Looking forward to seeing it progress over the next few days/weeks etc

Very cool!  You're off to a great start.  Are you going to do a moat around it or put it on a hill?

Thank you to everyone for your support and kind comments.
The outer surface is foam core with the outer layer of paper pealed off and brickwork scored with a pencil.
The scale is 25 / 28mm.
Will think about the moat once I have finished the castle. One of my greatest concerns is for storage of the completed work. The castle will be stored in plastic containers and can be broken down into walls and towers with the keep and gate being the largest.
