Information on the Turnstile Ticket Office #010 and how to assemble it
The 1/32 model is 210mm Wide x 120mm Deep x 102mm High
are a few tricks to making the build of our kits as simple as possible.
Firstly when assembling a part, do a dry assembly first without glue.
This cleans out any dust or debris around the part and ensures you are
not struggling to assemble the part quickly before glue dries. Use
super glue as it dries
fast and glues very well. Don't use too much, just a few drops here and
there. On larger surfaces, just a additional little "S" shaped run of
glue in the middle is enough. Push the parts together firmly and wait
whilst the glue dries.Take your time and if you are going to paint the
model we suggest you do as much as possible before you assemble the
kit. This way when you have completed the model, you may only have to
retouch an edge here and there.
to begin. Our first task is to assemble the base and inner walls. The
inner walls and base are keyed with symbols, namely cross, circle,
triangle and square. You need to match three of these symbols in each
corner. Locate the wall with the cross and triangle and the end wall
with the cross and circle. Apply glue and assemble them together as
shown. Ensure they are at right angles. You can use another part in the
kit which has a square corner to do this. All symbols are on the inside
of the building and are not visible when the model is completed.
Now locate the other end inner wall which has a triangle and a square symbol. Glue this square as before matching up the two triangles as shown.
Glue the final wall in place. There is a square and triangle on this part on the inside. Match these up to the symbols and glue it in place.
now glue on the base. Place it on the build surface with the symbols
uppermost. Align the symbols in the walls with the ones on the base and
dry assemble them together. Check that the three symbols in each
corner match. Also double check the extra holes as shown are on the
same side. This is required as this is where the turnstile will be
attached later. When happy glue the parts together.
Now attach the upper roof beam. Push it down firmly into the slots. Again do a dry assembly first, then remove it, apply glue and re assemble.
gluing the door to the main model we need to fix in the lower panel.
Take the door and the panel. Note the door handle is on the left side,
the chamfers on the panel are uppermost. Use the etching on the panel to
align it exactly with the square hole in the lower half of the door. If
you align it correctly, the edges of the panel should match with the
sides and lower edge of the door.
the door to the main model from inside. There are etched lines on the
door and on the inside of the wall to help you get it aligned correctly.
now begin to attach the outer walls. First glue on the turnstile end
wall. You can recognize this as it has a slot in the panel. Again do a
dry assembly. Depending on how accurately you have assembled the inner
walls, you may need to file the slot in the top of this wall a little,
but try it first before applying glue.
Attach the other end in a similar manner.
the model and glue on the "Door side" outer wall. Make sure the
vertical edges are aligned to form a neat corner and it is pushed down onto the base.
In a similar manner glue on the last outer wall.
Attach the window sill as shown.
Then glue on the window frame. There are two of these in the kit. It is the wider width one of the two that you need here.
At the other end of the building glue on the other window sill.
Followed by the window frame. This is the narrow width one.
We now need to construct the turnstile. The first part we attach is the "T" shaped part. This is glued and is pushed in from the inside as shown. Check that it is at right angles to the wall.The turnstile cross piece is next. This is glued into the hole in the floor and to the previous piece. Again check it is all square.
