    I like it! It looks very Efteling-like (that’s a Dutch themepark). Really cool.

    The red roofs remind me of the castles in Disney movies…

    About the bastion, this was probably before he thought up the final design. After all, this was made in 1944,

    a good while before he offically started writing LotR and was thinking of ideas.

    what happened top the whole “city” part? the hill looks a little bare.. perhaps it’s incomplete

    o and one more thing-you can see he never finished it, 1) the bottom is fade-ey and 2) the bricks on the wall

    no, good points Lady of Imladris. I like this, personally. It’s actually very close to how I imagined it.

    I like it. Apparently it was called “Steinborg” or “Stanburg” at this time, which is also what the Tengwar…

    …lettering says in an older version without the tehtar (vowel-mark) system. Interesting.
