In the gallery below can be seen the contents of this kit. The parts contain Laser pre-cut parts, Laser Acetate pre-printed glazing sheet, texture wrap layer sheets, kit instructions.
Lets get started…
First cut the base layer parts A1 & A2. These glue together into a stack of two making sure that all edges are square & true.
Then glue the outside wall texture sheets to their corresponding base layer parts. So door piece goes on the base layer with door opening, long back wall on to long wall base layer, two smaller ones on to the two smaller end wall base layers.
All that’s left to do is now place on your layout.
