Wow indeed.

Those roofs look great. I wonder how fragile they are.

I dont know why ive never thought of scuplting castle tower and turrets like he did. Its all basic techniques for the most part. But damn does it look elegant. It also makes it strong and sturdy for transport too.

Do you know how the shingle roofing on the turrets are done? Are those basic techniques as well?
(I know in the video it was said he cut 3mm tubing but how is it attached? If you keep putting clips around the edges with the jumpers for the tiles then there's no space to stack the tubing on top of each other)

If i could get a good look at it i could probably reverves build it. The right angle roofs are just 4 panels put together with some hinge pieces. The round turret roofs look completely round, so it would be flex tubing or 1x2 hingle plates to get the round frame work. How he is off setting the tiles im not sure i would have to play around with some known tecniques.

Blend these techniques together and may some others.
For the roofs
