Early Russian Fort

You see here an early Russian timber fort, which has been "reconstituted" in the Taltsy Open-Air Museum of Wooden Architecture outside Irkutsk in Siberia. I post some photos which I took on a previous trip in the hope that they will be useful references for anyone who wants to build and paint a model of such a fort. It is a project that I plan to take up eventually and expect that I will be using cocktail sticks (of course) and the 1/72 Zvezda wooden fort as base.

I was really struck by the bright reddish hues of the logs when seen in the early afternoon sunlight of mid-Summer.
