The components for the kit are cut by a laser into the card. To keep the parts on the card some of the lines 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 superglue for construction as it bonds fairly quickly (within 3 seconds) but normal white wood glue works just as well and is a lot cheaper.

There is a small piece of white plastic rod in the pack. This is used for the hinge on the large wheeliebin

If for some reason you lose it, or if you want to make the wheels on your small wheelie bin rotate, you can buy this rod in any hobby store.

It is EVERGREEN SCALE MODELS part 220 (.035" ROD - 0.8mm)

Part 1 - small wheelie bin

Begin by removing the parts for the small wheelie bin.

The wheels for the bin are inside the lid

Fold the sides round and glue the edges together to make the basic shape

Now assemble the lid as shown

Glue the lid on and add the wheels

Part 2 - large wheelie bin

Remove the basic part from the frame

Score it slightly so that when it folds, the folds are very clean

Glue it together as shown


Remove the small hinge parts from the frame

Punch out the small circles using a toothpick

Slide them on to the white plastic rod to make sure they rotate easily but DO NOT GLUE THEM :)

Glue the main hinges into the slots on the back of the wheelie bin


Now assemble the lid as shown


Cut the plastic rod into 2 x 20mm pieces

Thread it through the main hinges and the other hinges as shown


Glue the smaller hinges to the lid as shown


Next remove the pieces for the small wheels and assemble them as shown


Glue them to the bottom of the wheelie bin

I then add a drop of superglue on top to make them stronger.

Part 3 - garbage skip

Remove the basic part from the frame

Score it slightly so that when it folds, the folds are very clean

Glue it together as shown



Glue the extra pieces on as shown

CONGRATULATIONS! You are done.
