It’s a completely ridiculous model.. or IS it ?
We’ll take a look and deep dive into this model that many of us fondly remember from our childhood… in the golden age of models and miniature war gaming of the 60’s and 70’s. In other words, when all us veteran war gamers were just leaving the back
yard “Combat” TV show re-enactments with our neighbors to sit down at the dining room table with Airfix figures. In fact, the whole series of these models from Airfix, back in the day, were pretty darn fantastic.
But this is where we turn a critical eye, though we could just as easily discuss their Roman Fort or “Fort Sahara” which are also wonderful and probably have their own “nuances.”
But as we love castles, we’ll attack this one because essentially it will likely be the plan forward to create a life-size replica. HA!! Cool idea eh?
So, we’ll look at the actual functional structure and discuss what can be tweaked in this model, and what it might have been like to actually live in this tiny castle… if it was ever meant to be lived in… it almost looks as if it was designed to guard a single precious object rather than house a family or lord… Arc of the Covenant maybe? Hmmm.
