Castle Models

There is something so spectacular about castles. It is easy to understand but hard to describe. They have a majestic sense to them. Grand, strong and beautiful.

Maybe you can't own an actual castle but you can get a model of one.

Here I have a selection of model castles in a few different varieties including imagined castles and models of castles that actually exist. And they are in a variety of different medium from metal to paper.

Have fun. And if you make one of these castles be sure to send me a picture. This website is after all storm the castle :)

Will

A note from Will: I of course love castles. The name of my website says that! But.... Did you know that I have lots of stuff about real castles too? I have visited many castles, written about them and taken pictures of them. Check it out right here: Will's Medieval Castle website

I have here for you a wide selection of models from different companies. And the kits to make these castles come in a wonderful wide variety of materials. So you can get the type of model you want. These types include paper models, wooden ones, metal ones and cardboard. And there are a lot of different styles including cut and glue and puzzle types.

Aedes Ars Castle kits

Aedes Ars is a company located in Barcelona Spain. They make high end and quite unique models. Their kits cover a wide range of architectures and styles. And of course castles are a big part of their product line.

Their kits have a unique building style. You lay out cardboard templates, in the shapes of the castles then you lay in the ceramic bricks, one at a time. It makes for a very detailed castle.You actually build it stone by stone as they did with the actual castles.
