Peter Hunt has sent us some pictures of his latest 2mm creation, Schloss Zenda. Over to him (or rather his alter ego, Hercule)…
Whilst strategists believe that the recent Bacterian offensive on Zenda was undertaken to provide support for a beleaguered Sylvania, our real estate correspondent Sue Casa suggest that the operation may have been intended to obtain property in the neighbourhood at knock down prices. She speaks of course of that most desirable property, Schloss Zenda.
This famous Schloss consists of two parts: the ancient keep, surrounded by a deep, dark, and very cold moat; and the new residential complex consisting of a faux medieval fortified gatehouse housing sumptuous apartments, ballroom with the best sprung dancefloor east of the Kit Kat Club, barracks and stables. The two bailies are joined by a State Of The Art modern drawbridge utilising the very latest in mechanical contrivances to ensure easy operation.
The moat ensures complete privacy from paparazzi, door-to-door salesmen, insurance hawkers and interfering nanny-state government bureaucrats intent of ruining your plans to usurp the legal government of the land by placing an altogether more worthy candidate on the throne. The ancient keep contains ample storage facilities for French mistresses and detained Heads of State, whilst offering convenient means to promptly dispose of either should the need arise. Full operating instructions for the moat, drawbridge and accommodation are included in this useful handbook:
Rather like Schloss Altschwanstein, Schloss Zenda has been often imitated but never equalled. Examples of this highest form of flattery include Berg Kreuzenstein near Vienna and Castell Coch near Kaardiff:
Yes, Schloss Zenda remains a very desirable property in these uncertain times, offering seclusion, security, and ample parking. It remains to be seen if the Bacterians, or other parties, will make another bid on the premises.
Yours, As Ever,
