Very well done! You seem good at this kind of thing, maybe you should post a guide to building k'nex castles in general, like parts of it, positionings, and help with other stuff! How heavy is this one?

Wow, you did a great job. Some of the pictures are a little blurry, but considering the size of the project, and only having a consumer camera I think you did a great job.
