Thanks, I am making mistakes here and there but at least I am making these instead of wishing to.



quoting epic post.

lovely papercraft project. Does the kit indicate the scale?

No scale is mentioned. The height of the doors to the High-Energy Magic building are 5/8" (approx. 15 mm).

15mm doors for 12mm figures - I'd call that N scale, 1/160

I love that little boat house.

Here is part 3 being glued in. I applied glue to both tabs and put in place, starting with the bottom tab. Before applying the glue to the side tab, bend it forward to make it sure it won't come into contact on the wall in the wrong place. Once the bottom tab is in the right place, open the side tab and glue it in the proper place. I used my cross-opening tweezers to hold it closed for a few minutes. I had to add some more glue to the top of the tab and re-applied the tweezers.

The first wall looked good so I went ahead and glued the second wall of part 3. With limited space, I applied glue to the floor plan and slid the tab on part 3 into place. I then burnished it down with the end of my handy paint brush.



I am leaving the last wall for later as adjusting it would put undue pressure on the rest of the part and could move it out of place.

Part 4 glued to Part 1 (internal wall).


Part 4 glued to Part 3.



I decided to add part 5 to part 6 while it was still flat.


Then I joined part 6 to make the smaller building.

Next I will join the smaller building to the rest then it is on to the roof parts.

Here is the small building and passage glued to the larger building. I started by gluing just the passage to the larger building and holding them together for a few minutes. I needed to make sure the passage was placed correctly. then when I was sure it wouldn't come loose, I bent the floor away a bit and slipped some glue to the tabs to fix it to the floor and pressed down on the building for a few minutes.

Next are the roof parts.

Here are the parts for top of the two buildings. The small parts are for the edges of the small roof.


And here is the small roof all folded and glued together. The edge pieces have yet to be glued. The bottom eaves are to be glued together to form a square but there isn't much purchase for the glue. I might cut some strips of paper out and use them to help form the square.

It has been a few months since I last posted here. Progress stopped on the High Energy Magic building because of this:


The small tower, in the upper-right corner, somehow became crooked and is no longer square. I found this out when trying to put the roof piece on. I tried to bend things so the roof could go on, but it was a case of fixing it right in one place and causing it not to fit in another.

So, I have decided to cut away the wall connecting to the small tower and possibly where it is glued to the floor plan to see if that will help straighten the small tower back to being square.
