Your imagination and this authentic replica of a medieval castle will carry you back to days when brave knights rode on handsome steeds, great halls echoed sounds of merry feasting, and heraldic banners waved above parapets. Connected through legend and ceremony with the Princes of Wales, Caernarvon Castle was begun in 1283 by Edward I and has stood for seven centuries. Now you can re-create the glory of Caernarvon Castle with this full-color, three-dimensional model accurately rendered on heavy card stock. Complete step-by-step instructions and exploded diagrams explain how to cut, fold, and assemble the walls, towers, gates, courtyard, and ramps. Dozens of armored knights and humbly dressed peasants — all drawn to scale — are ready to set on ramparts, in courtyards, and around the castle. You'll even find crested flags to fly from parapets. An informative text provides historical information about the castle, its history, and its inhabitants. Model builders, paper crafters of all ages, and anyone interested in medieval history will delight in creating this inexpensive facsimile of one of Europe's mightiest castles.
