Set 12 - Packing Plan

As an alternative to the packing plans that accompany each Anchor Stone set, I present the packing plan I use. Note that one of the boxes has an empty space the size of a #1 block. The stones are not labeled, but one should be able to determine placement by observation. The key to this packing plan is that all like stones (in size and color) are packed next to each other and in the same orientation.

12_2 (castle)

This is a tale of two towers, and the bridge that connects them. The design requires set 12 to build.

Note the trickery in the roof tiles(262/265) of the red tower. Lots of detail was used throughout the construction giving it a nice view from all angles. This model should provide a nice challenge to the aspiring Ankerstein builder.

The plans for this construction may be difficult to follow. Consider it a challenge. If the plans are missing any detail, please let me know.
