After the mammoth theatre build, I needed to do something completely different, both to confront new challenges and to avoid comparisons. Also, with most of my key, base colours used up, my colour selection was severely limited!

For anyone not familiar with superhero lore, the Fortress of Solitude was created with a shard from the planet Krypton and hidden in the remote Arctic. It's Superman's home-away-from-home where he receives instruction from his father, Jor-El.

The model is based on the fortress as depicted in the original Superman movies, with a couple of imagined features added (notably the caves)
