All battlements in place.  Building complete. If you're lucky you may also have torch brackets, torches,  some greenery, a short bannister section, a bar across the gate, and 2 brackets for holding the bar. I'm missing one gate bracket so I haven't used the bar. These smaller pieces are nice stage dressing but not essential to the structure of the castle.

Another great piece of work, Graham.  Have you found an archive which still has the photos intact?

I just edited Martin's post by adding ~original after each occurrence of .jpg, as explained here!

I wondered if that was it, but also wondered how you could do so, but presumably you are a moderator with magic powers.

Nope, not a moderator. And my avatar has all the magical powers in our house. When you quote a post, you get to see all the 'background' text of the original post, with the image links and emoticons and so forth in text format, so it is possible to edit the quotation before you post it. Anyone can do it! But it would be good to replace the original post with the edited jpg references, not something I can do.

Of course, I'd read your explanation on how to reinstate the images from Photobucket.

I did think of doing the same for some of my threads after reading your two latest topics, but then realised that I'd deleted most of my images on Photobucket.
