This paper model kit is easy to assemble, requiring just cardstock paper sheets to print on (110 lb. or 199gsm recommended), scissors, hobby knife, paper glue, aluminum ruler and cutting mat. It may look complicated, but every part of the Willow Brook Inn is simple to assemble on its own, and putting it together is just a matter of building up the simple shapes into the complete structure you see here. Because this is such a large model, assembly time is two to three hours.
This model is designed at the popular 28mm-30mm gaming scale, and can be shrunk down to 15mm, 20mm or 25mm scales by simply adjusting the print size percentage on your printer. Tips and advice for altering the scale are included with this kit.
The Willow Brook Inn features multiple texture layers, putting you in control over the final look of your model before you print. If you like, you can print several versions of this model and scatter them around your gaming table, and each model can have a distinct look.
