First 2019 Project - Some Steps Forwards

Hello dear readers,

With help from Elizabeth in finding the link, a video clip showing how to assemble the same as my kit, I find it very easy to sort out this Chinese puzzle. One of the best things in Blogland is having friends to help you.  Thanks again Elizabeth.

I started assembling the pieces of furniture.  Most of them, but two, were a piece of cake.



Had to change the tiny table's original leg.  It was impossible to glue it to the top and bottom.
Luckily I found paint in my stash with a similar color.  It's going to be covered with a tablecloth so the slight difference in colors won't be noticed.




Using wooden beads thread on a wooden toothpick and one big plastic bead, I was able to glue and stabilize the little table.





It is a 1/24" (Half size project).  Not every item is this scale.  On the left, you can see one of the chairs I make in 1/12" beside the cute chair which came with the kit.






Here are the two chairs from the kit, each a completely different scale.




There is one piece, yet to be finished, which simply doesn't want to stay fixed.  I'll have to find a
stronger glue with a quicker grip than my usual tacky glue.




Tiny ornaments are no problem they only take time and patience.

There are many tricks and hints in the video.  I recommend everyone, even those who don't have a kit to assemble, to watch it. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKQzd9vQnIc)

A warm welcome to my new followers.  Thank you for following.

Have a wonderful rest of the week with blessings.

  9. In these kits not all objects are always in scale.
    The "new" table is perfect and nice.
    Have fun!

  15. They look wonderful. I'm terrible when it comes to scale, I usually just eye it.

  16. You have been very busy… already so much assembled. And even with a bit of Drora-touch on that reluctant table. I'm wishing you even more fun with this kit - and a happy ending for your glue "problems"! ;O)

    Hugs
    Birgit
