For each “X” shape on the building gather these parts
NOTE: These parts a rather precise fit. We recommend using white glue (PVA) for a little longer work time, at least for the first few until you get the hang of it. If you use superglue, we recommend doing the next 3 steps in quick succession so that you can move and fit the pieces more easily.
Glue cross members into each of the “X” slots
Glue the center into the “X”
Each corner gets one of the corner cap pieces. Make sure the detail is on the outside.
Gather the upper barricade parts. NOTE: You can leave these off for easier painting and attach after painting.
