Building a Noch Laser-Cut Kit

Stuart Jordan


STUART JORDAN builds a Laser-Cut kit for our shop layout.


I will be building the N66406 Workshop kit, but constructing it as a cafe for the layout in our shop.

Noch Laser-Cut Kits

Inside the box is a multitude of flat sheet parts, and free glue!

The main walls of the building in many of these kits are a single piece, after interior detail is added they just fold up and are glued together.

The window frames are removed from the sheet by carefully cutting the small bit of card connecting it to the sheet.

The door in the kit is just plain wood, but I wanted something a bit more interesting, I painted it dark blue

The door and window frames are glued to the inside of the walls.

The walls are then folded up and glued together. I tried to do all four walls at once which meant I was stuck for some time holding the walls together until the glue bonded, so maybe it would have been best to do them one at a time!

The inner of the roof is carefully cut out.

It's then glued under the main roof part and held until bonded.

I then made a suitable sign on the computer and then printed it out and affixed it to the front of the building.

I also added some of N14132 Virginia Creepers to the side of the building. You get more than what is in the image in the packet!
