Caernarven Paper Castle Diorama
Here is a picture of the completed project.
Building the paper castle is pretty easy and for the most part you build the towers and buildings separately like this one here. then you build the wall sections and attach them all together.
Some Tips on building the Castle
Of course you will be cutting out all the various shapes and pieces but you will also be doing a lot of folding of flaps and stuff like that. One great tip for you is to use some kind of a tool like an xacto knife to score the fold first. Then it will fold very cleanly and crisply. (You can use the cutting edge of the xacto or the blunt back edge of the blade.)
And- Notice that I am using a straight edge for this scoring. I recommend you use a straight edge as often as possible for both cutting and scoring.
Another useful tip is to use some kind of tool like a burnishing tool a pencil or a chopstick to burnish the the pieces that have just been glued together. The picture shows two pieces I have just glued now I am rubbing them to get it nice and even and flat.
This is the exact kit that I use in this project.
Hohensalzburg Castle is a castle in the Austrian city of Salzburg. It sits on Festungsberg hill. With a length of 250 meters and a width of 150 meters, it is one of the largest medieval castles in Europe. Construction of the fortress began in 1077 under Archbishop Gebhard von Helfenstein. . Tools needed to complete construction: mid-sized scissors, modeling knife, water-based glue, ruler or triangle, and modeling pins. Tools Not Included

A Note from Will: These Schreiber Bogen castles are supposed to be fantastic and a lot of work. I will be doing one or more of these.
