First Build Finished!
By Missy A
I gave my brother the haunted cottage as a surprise last week and he loved it! I made a lot of the interior items myself and used kits for the fridge and stove. This was SO much fun to do, I'm considering doing a larger one next. Again, I want to thank everyone who helped guide me thru with their tips and suggestions. This is a wonderfully supportive forum!
Deconstruction: What about the windows?
My current project is repairing a very used, maybe not finished Laurel that I got for $10 on Craigslist. One of the things I know I want to do is remove the doors, which are currently glued in place, and add hinges so they can open. They are currently hot-glued in place, and I know that I can use a heat gun or hair dryer to soften the glue for removal, but I'm concerned about what the heat will do to the windows in the doors themselves. The plastic looks very thin and I don't want it melted or warped if I can help it. Has anyone else dealt with this before? What did you do? Should I just plan on replacing the plastic while I have the doors out?
When the windows don't quite fit...
Progress on my Glencroft has come to a halt! The windows and doors need an exceptional amount of trimming to fit properly. I'm wondering if there's a faster/more effective way than sanding them by hand? I also tried a Dremel but it can't get the corners properly. Any suggestions appreciated before it becomes a pile of toothpicks!
Hello! Newbie in MD
Hello, my daughter and I got a free dollhouse that we are turning into a fairy house. I am not sure what it is....
That inspired me to buy an Orchid kit to turn into a Haunted House.
I am having troubles figuring out if I should paint before assembling? Is there anything else I need to do before assembling?
