Castle of wood to play

Paper castle design. Decide each function, if you want to have turrets or a lot of towers and how many doors and windows of the buildings are intended to have. Despite Hollywood depictions, the European medieval castles had very simple designs. They were usually just a tall square or rectangular, with surrounding walls. The complexity of the design, however, is limited only by your imagination and you can opt for the simplest design or crazy as you want. The only difference is the time spent making it.

Draw each component of the castle in balsa wood. One wall of the castle is considered a component and an adjacent wall would be another. For turrets, it is not necessary to remove each individual turret but a whole line of towers. Balsa is an excellent choice for making models, as it is strong and light. Draw each part of the castle in the balsa wood board.

Cut out the pictures of the castle. Use a hand saw or power to do this puzzle. Be careful to follow the lines of the wood exactly what is not unnecessarily cut large pieces of the castle.

Paint and decorate each model part. You may want to paint the walls of the castle in a shade of gray and green to add an effect of ivy. Carve the wood surface to accentuate the bricks or cracks in the wall. Linoleum cutting knives work well for this, as it can easily cut shallow lines on wood surfaces.
Fit the model with Balsa cement. Not necessary to use a large amount of glue as balsa this is light and stick to even small amounts of glue.
