We thought that the castle model was very intricately designed and detailed. We are looking forward to the others in the series. We use our lego mini figures to make up stories and it gives you a good sense of what castle life was like back then. We both would highly recommend it to crafty people.
“This was good”
We find the Usborne cut-out models very interesting, and we collect many of them, this was a very exiting one because the buildings and people showed a lot of detail, just as the others, it was fun to make and we would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Press reviews

“All you need is some glue and a pair of scissors to make a superb model of a 20th century castle; crammed with intricate details this book is guaranteed to keep children (and adults) aged nine and over busy for hours.”
