The components for the kit are cut by a laser into the card and/or MDF. To keep the parts on the card there are some small tabs that you will need to cut.

When you want to remove a piece from the card, cut through the remaining lines to release the part.

I use superglue and white wood glue for construction: the superglue is used for small parts as it bonds fairly quickly (within 3 seconds) and the white glue for larger parts but feel free to use whatever glue you are comfortable with.


Start by separating out the main parts of the three shacks. Each shack comprises 2 side pieces and a single jointed piece for the roof, front and back.

There are three different designs and they are marked with a triangle, square and pentagon.

The same marks are on the side pieces


Separate the side pieces

Fold the main pieces so that they bend easily


Glue each long main piece around the side pieces. Make sure that the side pieces fit UNDER the main pieces, not next to it.


Now the fun begins.

These pieces are the six side pieces. They are all interchangeable and you can glue them onto any of the huts... the choice is entirely yours.

When you glue them on though, make sure they line up at the bottom. There is supposed to be a gap at the top as each hut has its own shape


Find the small extender pieces and glue them onto the top of the side pieces for the two huts that do not have flat roofs.


These are the window pieces. Again, there are six different ones and they are all interchangeable so they can go into any of the side pieces


These are the front pieces and the doors

Although the doors are attached initially to certain front pieces, this is just for transport. Feel free to mix them around


These are the back pieces.

Glue them in to place and you are nearly done.


Cut roofs using the corrogated card provided and glue onto the two huts that do not have flat roofs.

You should have quite a bit of corrogated card left over. Add it to the bitz box :)

For the building with the flat roof, you can either use the metal plates to make a railing or else use more corrogated card. The choice is yours


Finally, since your model is card and absorbs white glue really well, I recommend putting a thick line of glue onto all the joints.

CONGRATULATIONS! You are done.
