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.

Parts:

  1. Bastion sides
  2. Bastion roof/base
  3. Battlements
  4. Outhouse sides
  5. Outhouse top
  6. Outhouse bottom
  7. Balconies
  8. Climbing ladders


Start by prefolding the sides (1) so that they all have neat clean folds


Doing one side at a time, attach them to the base.

We use a few drops of superglue to hold it in place initially and then add a good amount of wood glue, which can dry overnight

As you add each side piece, use a few drops of superglue to hold it in place

Once you have added all four side pieces, glue on the roof


Remove the four battlement pieces as shown and fold them so that they have clean bends

You might have to score their folds gently with a hobby knife so that they fold cleanly


Glue them to the top of the bastion as shown. You can choose your own height for them


Remove the parts of the outhouse (4), (5) and (6) and assemble them as shown


Use the top of the outhouse as a cutting guide and cut a roof from the corrogated card


Fold and glue the three balconies (7) as shown


Before you start adding scrap, take note of where the gap is in battlements


You might not want to glue the outhouse to gatehouse (if you leave it separate it is easier to store and also gives you more flexibility in how to use it)

What you should do is reserve space for it on the side of the bastion and not put any scrap there.

This will let it sit flush against the side when you do want to use it.

There are several ladder pieces (8) that you can use to connect the outhouse to the entrance

CONGRATULATIONS! You are done.
