Let's go through the pictures of the build and I'll point out the areas where I had issues and some tips on dealing with them.
|One page instructions. Please, I need bigger type face!|
|The mdf parts. I really like how these are laid out. Everything arranged in sub-assemblies. Makes finding parts so much easier.|
|The cardboard parts. These are for the roof and the steps.|
|You start off with the basic box. I included the picture of the tool box to show where it goes. The exploded diagram on the instructions doesn't really make its exact location clear. Once you see where it goes how it goes together makes more sense.|
|Here is the steering axle assembly all put together|
|Another view of the steering axle|
|And here everything is together in the front|
|Building the stairs. This was pretty straight forward and should be left as a separate piece unless you are going to setup a permanent gypsy camp.|
|Okay, that looks pretty good, the chimney is a little crooked.|
|And from the front. Here you can see where I "over bent" the cardboard and it formed a little kink right at the peak of the roof.|
This is a much more complex kit. The layout of the pieces makes things much easier to deal with though. As noted in the picture captions I had a lot of trouble with the roof. Hopefully the second one will be much easier. This kit took about an hour to get together, including picture time. I figure I could put together the next one in 30-45 minutes depending on how much trouble the roof gave me.
