1. Assemble internal walls 10C & 11A as shown (no glue needed)
2. Cut out floors 9A being careful to select the coal shed and WC configuration that you have chosen. Cut the two rear doorsteps off where bathroom conversions are being modelled. Deep score on the fold line (cut about 2/3 of the thickness), fold 180° and glue together. Apply weight until adhesive has set. Cut slots after folding and gluing.
Rear doorsteps (see text)
Cut slots after Folding and gluing
3. Slide floors 9A into position and glue in place ensuring that all edges are flush with the ends of the internal walls.
4. Glue passage floor support 10B to passage wall 10A on printed side flush with bottom (omit if wall is cut off to ground level).
5. Insert passage walls 10A through aperture, rotate and glue into position
6. Insert passage floor structure 11C from above and passage ceiling structure 11D from the front. Glue 11C in place from below after positioning, 11D needs no glue yet.
7. Glue 3x chimney structures 10E together (4mm/ft scale) ensuring that one long edge and one short edge are perfectly aligned. (For 3mm/ft scale use 2x 10E, for 3.5mm/ft use 2x 10E & 1x 7D, for 4.8mm/ft use 4x 10E) Repeat 7 times.
8. Glue 4 of the assembled chimney structures to central internal wall 11B with the top and sides (marked green) aligned. The total thickness of all the card laminations should be 10.5mm in 4mm/ft scale (8mm in 3mm/ft, 9mm in 3.5mm/ft & 12.5mm in 4.8mm/ft), If it is more than 0.5mm out, adjust with card or paper to bring the thickness within tolerance. Apply a little model filler to the laminated edges to take out any deviations.
9. Apply glue to the bottom edge of central internal wall 11B and slide down until it rests on the centre of the passage ceiling ensuring that it is parallel with the passage walls.
10. Cut out end gable wall structure 7A, Deep score on the fold line (cut about 2/3 of the thickness), fold 180°.Note that the inner and outer layers are offset at the sides.Glue together ensuring that the offsets on each side are equal and parallel throughout their length. Apply weight until adhesive has fully set.Then cut the gable and chimney profile to the grey lines. Repeat for other end gable wall.
11. Glue 2 of the assembled chimney structures to the inside face of end gable wall structure 7A with the top and sides (marked green) aligned.The total thickness of all the card laminations should be 6mm in 4mm/ft scale (4.5mm in 3mm/ft, 5mm in 3.5mm/ft & 7mm in 4.8mm/ft), If it is more than 0.5mm out, adjust with card or paper to bring the thickness within tolerance.Apply a little model filler to the laminated edges to take out any deviations.
12. Cut out front wall structure 5A, Cut all the red arch lines on both sides using a new blade at a steep angle before deep scoring on the fold line (cut about 2/3 of the thickness). fold 180°.Note that the inner and outer layers are offset at the top and sides.Glue together ensuring that the offsets on each side are equal and parallel throughout their length. Apply weight until adhesive has fully set.Then cut out the window and door openings.Repeat for rear wall 6A except arches.
13. (Optional) Colour the underside of the arches with a brown fibre tipped pen (use the nearest colour to the arches that you have available).
14. Cut out front wall texture 1A, cut window and door openings on the grey lines (not the brick lines) Repeat for rear wall texture 1B
15. Glue front wall texture 1A to structure 5A between the vertical guide lines and flush at the top and bottom, make sure that it is fully adhered and that there are no bubbles or wrinkles.Fold the window and door reveals tightly around the openings and glue on the back. If you use spray adhesive it should stay sticky long enough to do this, other adhesives will require further applications.IMPORTANT: Leave the reveals to the centre passage flat for now, they will need to be glued to the passage walls after fixing to the building. Repeat for rear wall texture 1B
Leave centre passage Reveals like this for now (see text)
16. Glue the window cill textures 3C to a piece of GREY cereal box card with a straight egde using the card edge alignment lines.Cut out the individual cills as shown above.Repeat for rear wall.
17. Glue window cills to outside face of front and rear walls below windows in the marked areas as shown ensuring that they are parallel with the brickwork.....
18.....Then fold tightly through the opening and glue to the inside face of the wall.
19. With a sharp blade, cut out the eight fascia strips 8C and glue to the top of the front and back walls (widest strip first, aligned with dotted grey line down to the narrowest) keeping them aligned with a straight edge.
20. Slide rear wall assembly in from above and glue in place.
21. Glue end gable wall assemblies in place. Note the stepped corner joint detail, it is important that the end walls sit between the front and back walls as shown.
22. Push the front wall assembly over the doorsteps and glue in place.
23. Apply glue sparingly to the back of the front and rear central passage reveals and stick to passage walls.
24. Cut out the four kitchen walls 7C and cut out the windows and doors, cut out the hatched areas only if the outside WC and coal shed doors are required. Refer to instructions 14 & 15 and apply kitchen wall textures 3A or 3B as required. Note that the door and window frames are flush with the brickwork, they are therefore integral with the texture and wrap around the openings, the single thickness of card gives the correct depth of frame, don’t worry that the walls do not seem very sturdy, when the building is assembled, they will be.
25. With a sharp blade, cut out the eight fascia strips 8D and glue to the top of the four kitchen walls (widest strip aligned with dotted grey line then the narrower strip on top) keeping them aligned with a straight edge
