(http://i221.photobucket.com/albums/dd97/Martin_Milner/3667%20Small%20Castle/IMGP0650.jpg)

rear tower ground floor laid out. This is where I am using my 2 spare arrowslit walls, but the plans call for solid walls.

and part way assembled. Pop on the legs, roof and weather vane to complete. It's actually best to put this section on last after the battlement walls shown later to get the connectors to slide in easily.

Hmmm ...

Quite clever, Martin ...  :wow:

Actually, a rather innovative and masterful way of getting around Geobra's idiotic rule against posting Playmobil assembly instructions on the web.

Brilliant ...  :wow:

Martin, you have now opened the way for all us to "legally" share assembly instructions for all of Playmobil's "construction" sets.

Thank you ...  :wow:

All the best,
Richard

Heather actually came up with the idea back in October 2005, and I came up with it independantly about a year ago, but as long as Playmofan.nl was able to publish pdf copies of the printed instructions it wasn't really necessary.

The two factors that kicked this off now were that Geobra shut down Playmofan.nl's site, and that I actually have some of the castles for which people are always requesting plans.

Thanks Martin, I just got this set second hand for the meager amount of 19,99. It only had one floor board missing, the padlocks and the brown corner pieces for the safety rail. Thanks to your instructions I could easily spot what was missing, not that I'll keeping the set as it is, it is a parts bin for my city. Like the forum romanum was in the 16 century!

This topic came in really handy when I was assembling my 3667. Thanks! I do have two questions however. 1) did the original brown-trousered klicky have a black collar or was his neck bare? 2) I think you're missing the 'bannister' thingummy on the battlements, on top of the main door: my set had two ... and only one connector. Did the original set have two connectors? And one last question to anyone who has the original set ... did the fat klicky have black cuffs? Thanks for any help - Im quite anal when it comes to this sort of thing :)
