Wow! That's great Panos! So you just got parts you had and used them to build 3445 right? You didn't get the actual set?

This is a set I got a few months back. It just misses the bell and its frame as I send those to grangel (bell) and playmofire (frame).

I have the original, the one I got as a kid in chritsmas 1991, back to my parents house! Lots of great times assembling it and dissasembling it!!! and fighting the 3750 pirate ship  :lol: :lol:

Btw, I have so much steck I could easily make about 20 of them  ;D ;D ;D Only thing I have in little quantity is the battlements.

You did a beautiful job, Wolf Knight!  The instructions and pictures are so clear, that I could even follow them and I don't even have the set!  This will be an asset to so many people I am sure.  Makes me want to stretch my interest to the knights theme . . . oh no, more competition for steck!  ;D

Many thanks for the offer grangel.
The castle arrived on Saturday and I was going to set it up today but we had visitors here so I had to leave it.  :hissyfit:
I'll try and put it together from Panos' photos, but if I have any problems I'll get back to you.

Hello Panos,

It appears that all your photos have disappeared. And, of course we all know that Heather's DB is pretty much shutdown.

Fortunately, Zirndorf seems to be slowly filling the void. However, in the meantime we all need to find other sources of information.

Wonder where Playmobil collectors and fans are going these days?

Hi Richard,
Sorry, the account is closed for a couple of years now, and I don't have the images anywhere else.
When and If I manage, I'll try to get another set of pictures for constructing this set.
