General Construction Information


These instructions assume that you are a regular card model builder..


Tools: Before starting you will need basic modelling tools. Scissors, craft knife, straight line and a suitable glue. PVA is my favourite. A pencil helps to shade the scored edges and the underside of the roof. A cutting mat is also very useful.

Take time to study the look of the model before you start.


You can build the model in it’s simplest form without cutting out windows etc because the model already has a 3d effect. The extra parts do add depth to the model but the choice is yours.


Roof Parts: Most of the roof parts are slightly larger than needed so you will probably need to trim to suit your particular need.


Windows: With Windows it is best to cut out the glazed area while the model is still flat. You do not need to cut around the window bars because they look good on the background frame through the glazing effect. This is created by cutting strips of the polythene bag that the model was wrapped in Glue the frame between the windows and wrap the polythene around the ends.If you have a model with a bay window please be careful as this is quite tricky (you should have a spare!) Try a dry fit first.


Chimneys: There are two types of chimney. One looks better filled with three trimmed match sticks with the center match a little higher to look like the pot. The second type has a top cover with spots showing where to make an X cut before gluing to the stack. You may not want to put as many pots as dots so just place the X in a suitable place. These pots look much better if you use cocktail sticks.


Sign boards come with a frame around them – but I prefer to glue a few strips of card together under the fascia then, when dry, trim to the correct size and use a felt pen or pencil to colour the edges.


Strengtheners: It is always a good idea to put strengtheners inside the model. Use any spare card or suitable material you may have before fitting the roof. Some models have strengtheners as part of the kit.


A few coats of modelers matt varnish will keep the model looking good and help to avoid fading, once you have completed it.
