The Medieval Port
Here is the completed medieval port
Here is a closeup of one of the more challenging pieces. The Sailing Ship.
Here are the things you need to make this project:
The book recommends cutting out all the pieces at once but to keep things organized I don't recommend this. I cut things out as I need them. It is much easier to keep track of your pieces.
Score all fold lines with an xacto knife then cut sharp corners and taps Then finish cutting with scissors. Always use a ruler when scoring and cutting with the xacto knife because you can't uncut mistakes and generally the final product will look nicer. Fold all the score lines before you apply the glue. And fold the pieces together before adding the glue so you can make sure they fit right.
Under your base - Use a piece of cardboard or foamboard to make it sturdier. Attach all teh roofs and accessories before gluing that piece down to the base.
For this project I found the ship to be very challenging. It seemed that the parts didn't go together quite right as they should have. It did come out pretty nice though.
And piece 87 - I couldn't find a place for it. Still befuddles me! If you make this medieval port and figure out where 87 goes send me an email!!
Ok, just one more picture to give you a sense of how this is made. You lay down the base sheet which has all the water, paths and town layout on it. Then you build and glue down the variious buildings. You can see a few of them have been attached on the far left.
This is the exact project available on amazon.com
