Australian house (front veranda) Sss

To avoid confusion, each veranda version will be done in a separate thread. Door openings are sized for Rslaserkits #3988. Window openings are sized for  Rslaserkits #3980 & #3981.

This is the front veranda version and contains templates for cutting styrene pieces. 2 different templates allow you to use modern or old style windows. The building directions are in the sketches, and to make your build easier you can enlarge them to full size and print them out. This can also be done with shingle and flooring templates printed on label paper. Sketches include Overviews, Parts templates, Assembly sketches and pdf’s. Shingle and wood floor templates are in no veranda version.

Choice of materials is up to you. It can be done in wood but sketches are based on styrene thicknesses. If you use another material adjust dimensions accordingly. Paint parts before assembly, except where the edges glue to other parts.

To print the part templates actual size, use the PDF's. Select best printer quality, set PDF zoom to 100%, and page scaling to "none" or actual size.  Check your printed page to see that 3" lines are exactly 3" long. Once you have templates printed, you can cut with scissors (leave a 1/8" border) and arrange on your material for maximum sheet usage. Part templates for siding are a mirror image, when needed, so that you can cut walls with siding side down (easier to cut). Be sure siding grooves are oriented correctly. Use rubber cement to glue paper templates to your material and then just cut on lines. No measuring ! Paper comes off easily.

Cut out parts carefully using a SERB and straight edge. The best way to cut out window openings is with a corner punch. It is important to follow assembly sketches IN SEQUENCE or some parts may not fit.
