Make sure to report your cargo at the Customs House

Everyone loves a good LEGO fortress. Builder Ayrlego shares a rendition of his own protective retreat in his creation, Customs House, Hussar’s Isle.
Customs Post, Hussar's Isle

In keeping with his theme of Victorian Age models, Ayrlego again puts forth a well-detailed creation showing British troops on patrol next to the customs office. These offices were used to count the number and types of ships coming into port, and played an essential role in administering the British Empire around the world. No wonder there are so many soldiers to protect it!

Although there’s a lot to love about this build, I think the window frames are the best part. They have the rounded edges and features of something that might have actually been built back then. If this was a LEGO set, I’d buy it in a heartbeat.
