This project originally started with the design of the drawbridge - and it got bigger and bigger. The bridge alone didn't look good so I placed a building behind it - the combination looked too small so I added another two Buildings and so on and so on. Finally there 2929 bricks in this set so there is little room for further details, as LEGO describes the set should be under 3000 bricks.
Could be a great set, you have a lot of things to build and a lot of fun when you play with it, open the Bridge, let the ship pass through it, close the bridge, let people walk along the water. Use other bricks and minifigures to place them in the houses or in the complete scene.
I got all of my inspiration from pictures I saw in the Internet and I hope the whole scene looks a little bit like Amsterdam...
