Hello I,m 13 years old. I've been getting home everyday without anything to do by finishing homerwork so quickly and with my intrest in medevil times i was gonna pose a project on myself,to build a castle. I wanted to use just the materials maybe more if nescery

popsicle sticks
and a little wire and papermache
(also the nesceites like scissor, glue,etc.)

I've got easy acces to all this materil but cant find the type of castle i wanna do...I've looked through many files and floorplans that i could find in all the other post. I wanted to make something of my own but be a lot like the fantasy version of arthur's castle.I wanted it to be about 3'by 3' size including a moat and outer wall. I guss the name of the caslte would be a citadel. and if i could maybe on how to build the walls a floor plan and maybe a square or pentagon shaped outer wall a castle design courtyard and all other detail.I'm gonna go into as much detail possible with my materials so if u got any ideas on how to construct certain parts or a castle design plz tell me dont email me most likely i wont get the email.

thank you.

I'm 13 years old...

Could you post a link to the 'fantacy version of Arthur's castle', as I don't know which one you are referring to.
If you want to call it a citadel, then it should be of arab design, such as the Moorish ones in Spain. Citadels did not have keeps, so if you want a keep, it must be alter addition to a citadel or you will need to go for a European castle.
When you say you want an outer wall, does that mean you want an inner and outer, that is, two sets of walls?

Conwy Castle (sometimes splet by English folks as Conway) in Wales might be a good bet?
