|Here is a simple tower similar to what you would build with plain blocks.||Add a few
ledger blocks to create ledges.
Notice that the
lower ledger protrudes on each side of the tower, you can just barely see it on the right-side. sorry
|Then embellish your tower by placing the narrow decorative blocks on the ledges.||Connect two towers by using the ledges to support a bridge.||Here you can see
changes are made to the back tower to carry the Roman Arch
Notice the arch used to properly space the towers.
|With the 3pc Roman Arch in
notice how the radius of the arch continues through
the two ledger blocks.
|Notice the continual placement
of blocks to
create the ledges.
|Make a few adjustments to carry
3pc Roman Arch
|Make an adjustments to the tower on the right so that it is the same height as the front tower.||
Fully embellished you can see by using the ledges how they give your Castle depth and dimension. This is key. Remember these basic concepts as you look at the pictures on the website and you will have a strong grasp on how things are constructed. It's actually quite simple.
However you must remember
that there is no wrong way with building blocks.
