                   TV studios, some cool new effects (see the handrail of

* Special notes *

The castle structure is inspired by the Château de Cheverny (France)
As did Hergé (Belgian comics author) in his "Tintin" series, I didn't
reproduce the two lateral parts of the castle (sort of "towers").
(go visit: http://www.chateau-cheverny.com/ )
The car is inspired by a "Citroën", model "Traction Avant", a French car
in the 30's (1934).
