This was a fun model to build and it looks amazing on the table. Many small details to catch the eye. In particular I enjoyed the challenge of assembling the curverd archway. I mount these models on foam core. It requires a few extra steps but results in increased stability and durability of the model. This model is a good choice if you are looking to progress in your paper modelling skills. It's a nice step up from the hovel.

There are four factors I take into account with a model like this: 1) Scale - I use 20 & 15mm figures so the model has to work on a reduced samller scale - the East Gate worked out nicely. 2) Durable - gaming fixtures and miniatures had better be able to stand up to some abuse - once you get the gate together it stands up well. 3) Construction - I don't mind complex if the result is a solid product - I liked the way the gate came together. 4) Visual - does it look right - yes.

Overall the East Gate model produces a good looking solid product.

My modelling skills are limited but I built this and it is one of my favourite pieces. Individual figures fit on the balcony and I can get a 50mm x50mm base on the office roof. I fixed Polish banners to the balcony making it an entry to a Polish estate/town/city and use it with my Poles (obviously), Turks, Russians and Thirty Years War armies. Without the Polish banners I fixed it would cover an even larger range of conflicts and armies and could go back to early medieval/Feudal times - my Lithuanians have been photographed passing through the gate. Like all Dave's models (I have more) lot of detail which means a lot of work putting it together but with patience anyone withe minimal modelling skills can build it. Very good value and highly recommended

Takes some work to glue, but the model is very nice.
