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.

Part 1 - the tank

Start by finding the tank parts as shown.

Pre-fold the main tank part so that the folds are neat and bend easily.

Starting with the parts adjacent to the piece that is attached to the base, start gluing the sides to the tower

The sides fit underneath the base, not next to it (as shown)

Work your way around the tower, gluing the sides to the base

Find the roof piece and score it gently so that each fold bends cleanly

Pre-fold it as shown

Hold the edges together and glue them in place

Glue the roof to the tower. Use as much glue as you want at this stage as it will be hidden

Part 2 - the ledge

Assemble the ledge as shown. This is an optional piece

Part 3 - the base

Start by removing the four cross-pieces and their brackets from each other as shown

Pre-fold the brackets so that they bend easily (you might want to score them)


Glue one bracket to each leg as shown

Then glue two legs together

Finally, glue all four legs together to complete the stand

The water tower may be assembled with or without the walkway

CONGRATULATIONS! You are done.
