August 21st - 22nd 2014
I glued together the roof peaks like the previous chapters and waited for the glue to set.
Then I painted two pieces that would show up on the roof and waited for those to dry. In the meantime, I read ahead a bit and saw that the construction was the same as the left side but with a slight difference. The kit had me attaching the pieces that were switched around now to the right side. Instead, I decided to finish the right side base first then fit the pieces that attach to the central support base. Just to be sure they would fit correctly. To do that, I had to combine these two chapters since the pieces were split between them. I put together the first section and sanded for around 20 minutes to get the slots a little more opened up. Painted what needed and then slid it into place no problem. The second section was a little more complicated as the peak piece just doesn’t match up properly at first look. In fact, I had glued this piece to it’s front wall base and then had to unglue and reglue again. It’s an odd puzzle fit so I was pretty frustrated then realized what I did wrong. But no harm, right?
