Cut & Assemble Haunted House – The Finished Model

Matt Bergstrom’s Cut & Assemble Haunted House is complete (kinda). After weeks of diligent construction, I’ve come away with an appreciation for all of Bergstrom’s hard work and attention to detail.

Here’s a look at the completed build

As you can see, there are a few other missing elements including trick-or-treaters and a coffin or two. But I have to say…this is a beautifully-designed model. With a little more patience than I have, I think you’ll be able to come up with a pristine version.

As I’ve stated previously, I”m not really sure what adhesive product or products are best for the assembly. I used what I had (which is a fairly large variety) but I never found one that was perfect for everything.

Remember to be prepared for lots of cutting (I ended up using a combination of scissors and a craft knife), and a lot of scraps. The creator has packed a lot of images and instructions into a small space, but you’re still going to have a pile of scraps. Just have fun with it. Don’t worry if all the pieces don’t fit like you think they should. It will still be a lot of fun.
