Mirenburg's Bastioned Walls. (Baedecker, 1977)

Again, Colonel de Castel-Jaloux dominates the scene, but the view is somewhat refreshed by a nice prospect of the tower of the Kleine Kirche. This slender structure stands in interesting (and perhaps somewhat Phallic) counterpoint to the masculine bulk of the North and North-Eastern bastins that flank the Kings' gate and it's famous, leafy parapet walks.

I really have been enjoying the progress reports about your fortress. I'd like to try my hand at making one someday, but I've got a lot of projects (perhaps too many) in the que, so I don't see it happening anytime soon.

I am curious, though, about your foam cutter. Would it be possible to provide a little more information on it? Thanks!

Hello Patrick

It's a GW product that I bought when I could find nothing better.

Basically it passes a current through a piece if fuse wire. The resistance creates heat and there you have your cutting tool.

I'd recommend using it in a well-ventilated area. The fumes are not too nice.

If you are feeling adventurous, you could build one:

Apparrently woodland scenics do one too.
