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.
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.
