The technique used for the windows at the top of the round towers is interesting, with a bunch of angled building, and it requires paying careful attention to the instructions. This comparison gives an idea of how close to the genuine article the set turns out — pretty close, although the model’s open back means you miss a couple of the taller towers which sprout from the rear of the real castle’s central keep. This allows to reuse it’s data completely, which is great for both performance and the memory usage. The rose in the jar is nicely done, and Lumiere the dancing candlestick is a wonderful little model.
Please scroll through the list to find the manual you are looking for. This way you can easily divide your world into «layers». The scene managers order is determined by their 2D order (you insert them using methods like InsertFront, InsertBack). This way you explicitly render some objects on top of other objects, regardless of their positions in a 3D world. And there’s a panel featuring three shields which wobble and spin when they could have been mounted in a fixed position. Includes two LEGO DUPLO figures: Cinderella and Prince Charming, plus a bird figure.
The instruction manual is a big beast. It has two pages outlining the history and attributes of the real Cinderella Castle in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. However, that’s nitpicking at an otherwise beautifully-designed set. Here’s an example of building a scene with two simple boxes. It shows nice transparent walls around our road. It uses the RoadScene.BoundingBox value to adjust wall sizes and positions to the road 3D model.
