New arrivals - metal replica of the Bled castle
We are proud to announce the arrival of a new member to our pewter Archiminima Replica collection, the beautiful Bled castle – the oldest, most famous and most visited Slovenian castle – in the whole Archiminima series of metal 1:2000 scale architectural landmark replicas. The model is made of lead free pewter and toned in the shade of old silver. Overlooking the picturesque Alpine lake Bled, the castle was built on the top of a mighty precipice and was granted to the Bishops of Brixen by Emperor Henry II in 1011. The castle was rebuilt and enlarged by the 17th century, becoming a powerful fortress with two courtyards, high walls with towers and a drawbridge over a moat. A history exposition in the castle is now part of Narodni Musej Slovenije.
The replica is now available in our little shop on eBay at www.ebay.to/2gHTWfh.

Our debut as retail vendors :)
Coming soon: Ordering individual blocks for castles of your own design!
Here is another photo from the experiments section of our archive – Tower 15x12 (247 blocks). Yes, you can see the grass through that window! The blocks are rough and uneven – we were still in search for quality material.
A picture from our archive: An experimental Fortress 17x24 without the base. It was cast of self-levelling floor in 2013 to test the moulds.
