Admit it - you were expecting a part-built model, not a building site!
The King needs a new palace, so has employed workmen to build it.
Scratchbuilt from all kinds of odds and sods, I mean from the finest Cedars of Lebanon and Jerusalem Stone, as usual on a Sarissa base.
Clay bricks from Pendraken/Minibits.
Brickmakers are a converted Essex Arab civilian and a Blue Moon African villager with a Peter Pig Viking head.
Timber from my garden.
Carpenter is a converted Xyston Athenian rower.
Masons’ lodge from split bamboo kebab skewers.
Stone waste pile from Salisbury Cathedral workshop via a rockery I used to have.
Proto-Ionic capitals are cast in resin from a master I made from styrene and brass rod.
The mason is another converted Xyston Athenian rower.
Remaining figures from Essex and Xyston.
