Thanks for reviewing the models!!
I'll fix my models.
They are built several years ago (before joining this community) and prepared for OMR recently, so some errors may exist.

Regarding part 3062, I think there were both molds (3062a and 3062b) exist concurrently in those years (around 1978).
As I (born in 1983 and begun playing LEGO system bricks in 1986) haven't seen a real-life 3062a, the transition should be rather fast.
Thus, I have modeled them with 3062b, except the sets before 1977 (pre-minifig era).

I have the yellow castle:

It's an older file, done in Bricksmith using LSynth, and not OMR-compliant, but perfectly usable.

For set 6375-2, I'm now working for stickers (sheet No. 192375) but I haven't built the model itself.
Please go ahead.

It's a nice surprise.  And stickers already exist !! (on my side I began making this one only very recently, so I hadn't checked yet for their existence in the library).
I think you should OMRize it for inclusion in the OMR Wink
One possible enhancement would be to make separate LDR's for the four corner baseplates, which are intended to rotate and allow opening one entire side or the other of the castle. That would make using that feature of the original model easier IMO.

Great news ! I hadn't begun work on these stickers yet (in fact the only stickers I have begun are those of set 6371).
I'm going to focus on the 6375 Exxon Station for the days to come and upload it (without stickers, at first) as soon as it's ok.

I think you're right on this one, I believe there was some variation among different production batches for some sets (another example is the astronaut helmet - 3842a or 3842b - of classic space minifigs). I'm not an expert on this subject though... Up to now I've used the rebrickable parts lists as a reference, since I understood it is quite reliable (any advice or opinion someone?)

To be honest I'd just assumed the castle was already in the OMR! But at some point I might get around to OMRizing it; at that point, I would typically put the rotating sections into LDCad groups rather than submodels (since I use submodels to reflect the build process and match the instructions).

Stickers (12pieces) completed and now on PT!!
Fixed some errata, and used 3062a instead of 3062b.
Thanks Jeremie for review.
