The components for the kit are cut by a laser into the card. To keep the parts on the card some of the cuts are incomplete.

When you want to remove a piece from the card, look for the incomplete lines. You will only need to cut these lines to release the part.

I use normal white wood glue throughout but feel free to use any glue that will bond card

Part 1 - the parts

The building comprises a mix of MDF and card. The central structure of the building is MDF and the card is layered on top of it

The MDF parts have been replaced with card parts. Where there was one MDF layer, there are now two card layers. These need to be glued together before construction starts but otherwise the instructions are the same

The MDF wall pieces are labeled A and B and the card layers are labelled A1, B1, A2, B2 etc

The concept is similar... card A1 goes on top of MDF A, card A2 goes on top of A1 etc

The only tricky bit is that you must always start with B :)

Important note: look at the MDF pieces. The side that has the letter A or B is the OUTSIDE.

The components for the inside are on the frame marked with an "I" (for 'inside')

Flip the MDF pieces over so that the A and the B are face down.

Remove the components and glue them in place as shown.

Next glue the MDF pieces together.

The only trick here is that the part labelled B must touch the back of the part labelled A

Dryfit the floors into the walls (if B is touching the back of A then they will only fit one way)

Now, start with piece B1. It should cover the whole of piece B1 plus the edge of A. It must hide the join.

Next add piece A1. It should cover the whole of piece A plus the edge of B1. It must hide the join.

Next add B2, then A2, then B3 then A3.

As you add each piece, make sure it covers the overlap of the piece below it to keep the corner neat.

Now for layer 4. This is spread out a bit on frame 4 but follow this placement guide to get all the pieces in their correct positions.

Finally for layer 5. This is spread out a bit on frame 5 but follow this placement guide to get all the pieces in their correct positions.
