Chateau for Blue Moon 15mm/18mm Musketeers
« on: August 05, 2012, 06:38:01 PM »
I just ordered the Blue Moon 15mm/18mm line of Musketeer figures from my local dealer. I already have a wonderful French town and farm in the form of the Landmark Normandy buildings, but I wanted a French chateau as well. A couple weeks ago at the swap meet I found what I think will do the job. It is a Disney Cinderella castle. I just finished it so I'm posting a front and real of the completed piece as well as one photo of what the castle looked like before modification/repair and painting. Hope you enjoy it. It was a fun project.

joroas, to be perfectly honest about this, the real driving force behind this project was to see if I could make a pink and baby blue Cinderella castle into something a bit more gritty with the addition for a few simple modifications and some paint.  It was a lot of fun and given the fact that the castle itself only cost $2 at the swap meet I'm really happy with the outcome.  Glad you enjoyed it too.  I appreciate the kind words.  Thanks so much for writing.  Richard

$2! Bargain. Still shows what you can do with something like that.  Don't let Walt know, though.  lol

Barks, thanks so much for writing and the generous words.  I should correct one thing it said in my initial description of the toy.  It has been pointed out to me that this is Sleeping Beauty's castle not Cinderella's.  Alas...  Richard
