Digital Or PDF Instructions For #LLCA52 Sand Castle - 2010 (LLCA Ambassador Pass Exclusive)

Sorry if this is in the wrong thread, I have been Bricklinking #LLCA52 Sand Castle -  Ambassador Class 2010 (LLCA Ambassador Pass Exclusive) for quite a  while now and I just need the #2335 Tan Flag 2x2 Square to complete the sand castle, (Ouch My Aching Wallet).

I need a copy of the instructions to build the castle, there is a scan of the first page on Bricklink but that is all I can find, is there anyone in the Brickset community have a complete scan or PDF of the complete instructions they can send me ?.

I am only after the digital version of the instructions so I can build it up & any help would be greatly appreciated  :)

    Just FYI, it looks just fine with the Trapezoid version of the flag - at a much lower cost!

    BL tan flag 2x2 = ~$4.50
    BL tan flag 2x2 trapezoid = ~$0.03/0.04!!!

    I'd like to argue that it will even look better with a different colour flag as the "drawbridge"!

    And, I'd really like those instructions!

    I dug one out of my loose parts and to be honest it looks a bit, well "MEH"

    BL tan flag 2x2 = ~$4.50
    BL tan flag 2x2 trapezoid = ~$0.03/0.04!!!
    So I bit the bullet and ordered 6 Tan 2x2 flag's from a German BL seller, with postage & insurance to the UK there was some change out of £35.00, and the Tan 2x2 flag is a rare-ish colour at least till it comes in a new yet unreleased Lego set.

    Also there seems to be an alternative Sand Castle that can be built

    I have had a bash at putting together the sandcastle and got thus far, I know its not 100% accurate....


    All I have to go on was a badly scanned first page of the instructions & a couple of different pictures taken at slightly different angles. I am still waiting for the Tan 2x2 flags that I ordered from a German Bricklink store to arrive then its just the mini-fig, clam & crab.
    With not having anything to go on with regard to the back of the sandcastle I seem to have a few pieces leftover......


    Still hoping someone somewhere has the instructions :)

    I grew up in Ocean City, NJ, so I really like sand castles. So does my mother, who I recently got back into Lego at the age of 71. So I want to make her and me each a set to make these 2 sandcastles, or at least something similar. But especially since I'm making 2 sets, I don't want to break the bank. So I've figured out and ordered parts to make the set for less than $33, including parts to replace the expensive (and unavailable at Lego.com pick-a-brick) 2x2x3 tan corner slopes in two different ways - method one is to replace with dark blue. Method two is to replace each 2x2x3 piece with one 2x1x3 slope and smooth things out with extra tan 1x1 cheese slopes and 1x2x1 slopes. I bought dark blue flags instead of red to match the blue corner slopes, and to go with blue drawbridge better. I'm happy with the results, but I know many people want the original. Each to his own! Anyway, if anyone wants stud.io, LDraw, or PDF files for my cheaper, all parts available from Lego.com versions (including a parts list), just message me. BTW, I opted for parts from Lego.com so I could get them all from one place, and so I could get free shipping (since I'm usually buying something else from there anyway).

    @CathyVT they look awesome :)

    Oh, and by the way, the parts to build the round base are all available from lego.com  (https://www.lego.com/en-us/service/replacementparts/sale). I opted for the 16x16 plate because I'd actually like a little more room around the castle for minifigs lounging on the beach. The plate is also cheaper - $2.01 vs. $7.72 for the plates needed for the round base, but not overly expensive to do the round base.

    Thanks! I'm excited to get the actual parts and try it out, but I'm psyched about how it looks digitally so far. I'll post pics when I complete it, of course. I also got pieces to make some lounge chairs, with blue flags as the backrests (many of my Lego scenes have people lounging with a glass of wine :) ).

    I can understand if some people think it looks odd - how/why would a sand castle have blue portions? But I'm kind of blurring the lines between sand castle and real castle; I bought some inverted slopes and other pieces and hope to make a version with castle-like ramparts, where minifigs can stand. 

    I didn't buy a seashell - not available from Lego.com. But I bought a few little stars like are in Beachside Vacation and I'll pull the crab and a lobster from my Fishing Store (I'll buy them for my mom's set once I'm sure on all of it). Got a bucket. I have a shovel and will buy a 2nd one for my mom (and give her a minifig or two).

    Any other beachy parts that would go well with it? 

    Any ideas for a nice box/container to put my mom's set into?

    There are some super lobsters in the Old Fishing Store Set, element number 6170394, part number is 29017. Not sure which number you need on somewhere like Bricklink. Also some crabs, element number 6005772, but they aren't quite up to the lobster in design I think. One of the the seagulls, element 6208794, would look great on the top
