Warning: This castle requires a massive amount of pieces. ill see if i can get a list up. For anyone who builds this, please post your pictures on the comments. This is my first instructable, so if you notice anything wrong with the format or the directions, just let me know. Also, the numbering might not be perfect, but I tried. Thanks!

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.
atomicturkey27 (author)  gmjhowe4 years ago
thanks. i should have used the macro on my camera for some pics, so some are blurry
