Gedemco "Versterkte Toren" (2)

In my last post, I was wondering where the inspiration for the Gedemco model came from, since I also noticed a slightly similar tower on the cover of Fantasy Wargaming by Martin Hackett.

It seems the model can be traced back to a modeling project by Ian Weekley. Many of the modeling projects were punlished in the book "Buildings for the Military Modeler" (1989), which contained articles previously published in wargaming and modeling magazines. So I suspect the Gedemco model was probably inspired by one of Ian Weekley's modeling articles.

The same tower can also be seen on George R R Martin's page, which makes an explicit reference to Ian Weekley.

The pages from Ian Weekley's book are shown below.
