Now that you have had a chance to “explore” your kit and become familiar with the pieces,
you have probably noted the instructions, though well laid out, leave a little to be desired.
This is not uncommon with many kits so I have taken the liberty to assemble the following sequence of
steps to help you with your project.
I have settled upon this approach based on my personal experience with assembling structures and
that I’m a few months ahead of the group in my assembly for the very purpose of identifying potential
The general strategy is as follows:
|Now that you have followed the previous instructions and have all your kits
pieces textured and painted, it's now time to put all these pieces together!.
Consider yourself fore warned - we do reserve the right to adjust this sequence as we move forward.
A few things to keep in mind while you assemble the structure:
Texture The Wall Panels;
Paint The Pieces;
Assemble The Wall Panels (flat);
Install The Windows & Doors;
Add Any Wall Signage And Additional Details;
Glue The Walls Together;
- Add Interior Detailing;
Glue Walls To Base;
- Finish Interior Details;
- Add Any Electricals;
- Install The Roof;
- Add Final Weathering;
- Model is Now Finished!
- Do not rush. Take you time and ensure you understand the task at hand
- Measure and measure again before you cut. It sounds funny but it does pays off.
- Let the glue set firmly before you start man handling the pieces. Sometimes it is better to
let the pieces glue over night.
- Save all the scrap pieces as they may not be “scrap pieces” and if they are, we may use them later.
- Ensure the pieces are assembled square. If they aren’t, you will have serious problems later
when the structure comes together. Use your straight edge and square religiously.
