|Fantasy making : Hirst Arts mold #371 ( Castle Cube Tops )|
|The castle wall may slightly overhang on the right side of the B2 piece. This will not cause a problem when you put together the display.|
The reason this will happen is that all of the castle cubes are intentionally made slightly smaller (10/1000") because they were originally meant to be used for a castle cube stacking game.
In this game, small groups of cubes would be grouped and painted. Since paint takes up thickness on all sides of the cube, they would have been too tight to stack and remove when planning these cubes with other Hirst terrain. Also, I thought it unlikely these cubes would be stacked in lines covering long distances.
However, the castle walls and towers are meant to be stacked in lines to cover long distances so they are more precise in size, therefore slightly longer than the cubes when lined up. This difference in size will not affect the display. The wall that extends out will simply meet up with a side tower and the small gap will be hidden down beneath the structure when the whole thing is assembled.
|Section B3 is made by gluing the top and the bottom sections together.|
These needed to be made is separate sections to make it easier when assembling the bridge.
|A straight tower is used on this corner.|
Because of this a gap will appear between the tower and the wall.
Be sure to glue it well at the top and bottom.
|On section C5, be sure that the overhanging corner is facing away from you like the photo shows.|
A wall end will end up gluing flat against the tower side you see here later on.
| This section is a mirror image of section C3 (above).|
All straight towers are used so you will end up with a gap between the right wall and center tower.
Be sure to glue this joint well at the top and bottom edges.
|This section has a small bridge that sticks out the side.|
Be sure to align this bridge to the tower top next to it.
When gluing this in place, it is best to lay the tower on its back until the glue dries.
