Can't wait to hear the history behind this scenario.

Crazy!
Look who is talking - "How hard can it be?".

Has your day release from that hospital expired yet?
Intriguing, yet mind blowing detail and skills.
Cheers,
Prisoner/guest Cell 33 (next to yours)

The progress is quite slow, here we are to date.

History wise, The Siege of Hull was the first major action of the Civil War in 1642.
As Hull was a Royal Arsenal, King Charles 1 wanted to hold the city, but was denied entry.
More information here if you are interested

Will you be making the "Plotting Parlour" in Ye Olde White Heart pub down Silver Street next ?????????
Many a lunch I have  had in that room when I was at college, doing my marine examinations - the sausage sandwiches where excellent.
Now will I be a model on the city gate sticking 2 fingers up to the King - or are you keeping the model more accurate and demure  ::) ::) ::) ;D ;D ;D ;)

Always demure but never accurate.

Sometimes, I just wonder why?
Groundworks started.
Why do I think I have bitten off more than I can chew?

How about a shark or some piranhas - that would keep the King out.
