1.

You have to duplicate the parts from the copy template which you want to use. In the beginning you should have more parts which you want to use as you need. So you have the option for trying and varying your individual building without losing important parts. After this you will cut every element roughly and lay it down ordinary at your desk or work table. If you are done with it you have to stick on your single elements on thicker photo paper. Now it´s time to cut the parts exactly.

You may not cut the grey shading on the edge of the wall parts. They replace the little web at the back from the columns and corner posts by the paper model.

For making the adding from your individual parts at the purchasing list more efficient and easier, you have to write down the article and parts number such as the color directly on this element. You´ll find all number information in our planning aid brochure.

… on a minimum 1.5 mm strong carton. Arrange your parts for every wall separately. Draw a line on the carton before, so it´s easier to put your individual elements at the right angles on the carton.

After cutting those elements with a sharp knife, they will be stick on a platform piece by piece.

But before sticking the walls on the platform it´s recommended to draw the ground plan on the carton. So it´s much easier to find the right spot for each wall at the platform.

Using universal adhesive or wood adhesive is possible for this operation as well.

The roof is sticking on a thick carton like the walls. That’s why the roof is strong enough to put it easily on the walls.

Last but not least you have to stick the columns, friezes and attica on.

After the alternate test on your model railway unit or diorama you write down the amount of the individual parts in the column “Strichliste” carefully. Regarding the summary information for every article, it´s easily to calculate the demand of articles and add the correct amount of those to the purchasing list.
 
 
 
 
If you go to your specialist supplier, do not forget to take your shopping list! By the way: It can seem that the required number of pieces of the parts does not harmonise for your building project 100% with the contents of our single articles and parts are left. This is the beginning of a new project!
