Assembly of the walls into building shell
This is when I know that the project really starting to come together, up until now the buildings where just a collection of parts. Now this collection will come together in a row of buildings that will form a major part of the finished project.
I use the pin, locate and glue method for all my building construction. The number of pins used depends on the on the height, thickness and type of material used here I have used 2 pins for the smaller buildings and 3 for the tallest as this is a plaster building of some height and thickness.
I drilled the holes into the ends of each front wall piece and then I filled the holes of the 2 outer builds with araldite and inserted the pins and left to set overnight. The middle building did not have any pins added as the outer buildings pins will be used to fix that section in place.
Once the pins are set in place I use them as template to drill the holes in the internal walls and the end walls. The holes in the internal walls go completely thru and the ends go 2/3rds of the thickness.
The first image here shows the large building with its ends fitted. The white part in the middle is to ensure that floor construction will fit and the yellow are to insure that the walls are straight. The second image shows the next section fitted all of these parts where fixed using a contact adhesive.
