The Siege of Dover Castle 1216 

Microscale is something i like to both build and watch. No wonder that this castle by Aido K has drawn my attention. It is not only  very beautiful but also historically accurate.  This siege of Dover Castle is not the first historical work of Aido, take a look at this map depicting political situation in South East England 1216.

What is interesting about this build is unusual use of baseplate and snot map. In both cases there is a lot of brick stacking – technique where parts are not really connected, just stacked one on another. It works well on a photo, but is a paint to take those models to exhibitions, because even weak shakes of the table can rearrange the setup 🙂 Neverthless i cant stop starring at them both.
