NOTE, this is an outdated version, please see the more recent version "Medieval Castle Tower w/ full interrior & cut-thr.s." A 13th century corner tower of a castle built in the French gothic style. It has four floors with the ground floor being vaulted, it also has an oubliette (underground dungeon) with a latrine, but I suppose it can also be used to dispose of bodies. The structure of the tower is based on the massive corner towers at the magnificent Chateau de Coucy, which was barbarically blown up by the Germans in 1917. I am especially proud of the detailed an accurate carpentry in the roof. The model has two scenes, one as the tower would have looked in peacetimes and one as it would during a siege (with hoardings etc.), it also has a hidden layer with blueprints. Please rate and review. #13th_century #architecture #castle #France #French #gothic #medieval #middle_ages #siege #tower #vault
