  1. Glencroft Dry Fit

    Thanks Holly,   That's very helpful. Marcia
  2. Glencroft Dry Fit

    Hi All -- Newbie here...just finished the first dry fit of Section A -- floors and walls of my Glencroft.  Feels like a great accomplishment!  I'm seeking advice from you pros on whether I should try to dry fit the whole thing, then take it apart and put it back together, or if it makes sense to disassemble this part, prime, then put it back together and glue.  I've sanded and trimmed slots and tabs to get a better fit.  But  I have discovered there's quite a bit of warping...nothing that some clamps, arm strength and patience can't handle when it comes time to glueing.   This didn't prevent me from getting a clear understanding of how the pieces fit together, and where I need to address the warping. But I worry that the current dry fit is so far from square that any attempt to play with the next stages will be futile.  I re-read the next sections of instructions and it seems that the elements already in place from Section A should be true/square in order to best accomplish Sections B and beyond. I know there are some areas where I need to consider the finishes (paint, paper, etc).  I'm not too worried about those, I've worked in very small, confined room box spaces before and I have a good idea about sequencing those tasks. It's the actual construction that I need help with. Your thoughts?   Hope my question made sense....  Thanks!! Marcia

    I love your roof! What kind of cardboard did you use?  Was it already pleated?  
  5. Hi from Upstate New York

    Hi Holly and Susie! Thanks for the welcome.  I'm just getting started with the dry fit, so we'll see how the adventure unfolds.  So far, my little house has changed her mind several times about what she thinks she wants to be....LOL
  6. Hello Everyone! Hubby/Santa gave me a Glencroft kit for Christmas.  After lurking here for a few months, decided it was time to join this community  as I begin my first dollhouse build adventure! Last winter, I returned (after 35 years!) to the miniature hobby, but eased in with roomboxes and built six (totalling eight rooms) over the last year.   Excited to dive into this next level -- a little intimidated, but taking it one step at a time (and reading each step in the directions about 100 times LOL. Looking forward to learning from you all. Marcia
