Howl's Moving Castle - Papercraft

I thought this would be the toughest papercraft I've ever done, but actually, it was much easier than the V for Vendetta fail, lol.
The flying version of Howl's Moving Castle was also very difficult, because of missing parts and japanese instructions.

But this one...everything was numbered/labeled nicely and most of the time, I didn't need to look at the instructions at all. It was also easier because it is twice as big as the flying version and bigger parts are easier to glue than tiny ones.

Anyway, here it is:

49 pages of parts. The print was about ~14 € + 2 x 5€ for the glue.

The pipes were supposed to come later, but I wanted to start with the most difficult parts first. I did some fails in the beginning, because the order in which I glue the parts if very important.

All finished pipes and the head.

This papercraft comes with lots of movable parts, so taking out the eyes is possible :D
The nose was quite annoying, because the surfaces were partly blank. I colored it with a brown marker.

The first....I call it gun turret :D it can rotate into every direction.
I can take out the tongue any time I want and close and open it's mouth at will, so great :D

Second gun turret

Third gun turret, the first ear(?) and the right wing.

Home sweet home

I realized at the end that the house on top is glued on the wrong side, but that's not a problem. Most annoying part here was folding the roofs.

With only the houses you could assemble a little village, lol. These are few of them, there were a lot more.

Between the houses and this photo came a lot of other parts that I didn't photograph. I simply forgot to take photos %D and most of the time, I was attaching all the single parts to the main body. These are the last ones, the legs :D


Download of the parts + instructions can be found in this PDF file.
