This Boxer Rebellion Chinese Fort was made from the Giant of Hong Kong Mongol Castle reissue. It comes in a nice tan-yellow color. I added 2 Gate-Roofs below the original one on the Facade to give it more of an oriental look. I cut my own design of corner attachment for the walls to keep everything square. The stock fort comes with small, round towers that the walls plug into with pegs. You can still use the factory pegs on the walls to plug into the other walls simply by hand-twist drilling a couple of small holes into the attaching walls and still get the square look. Or use the round towers with roofs and flags to drill your own holes and make any shapes, angels, etc you want. It would be quite colorful this way. This Fort's design is purely imaginary. In fact, the design with set-back gate is in the tradition of the old Western Marx Fort Apache designs. I have always liked it. The great thing about these forts are you can make any size or shape you want. The soft plastic can be cut with a paper-cutter.
