Issue 29


Stair Treads, Banister Rail x 2 parts, Shades x 6, Brass Chain and Lamps x 6.

Assembling The Dining Room Chandelier

With a toothpick, apply a little super glue to the top edge of the lamp and fix the shade on the top. Do this so all six are complete.
Take the chandelier you assembled in issue 28 and glue one of the tabs on the arm with super glue and attach one of the lights you’ve just assembled. Note: you may have to hold in place while the glue sets so it is straight. Do the same for the other 5.
Now take the chain and open the end of the ring at the top. Slide the chain ring through the hole in the top of the chandelier, and then squeeze the ring closed again.
That completes the Chandelier.

Assembling the Staircase

Here we finish off the staircase as we started in issues 27 & 28. I painted the steps in the same way as before adding some wood grain effect. These are numbered in order of placement on the underside. Fit the steps as you did before.

Assembling the banister is fairly straight forward, just test fit these parts first. You may need to open up the holes on the steps, particularly if you have applied paint to them.
I didn’t like the overall look of the banister, looked a little to plasticky for my liking. So I decided to paint it, with white spindles and a wood effect handrail. Note: If like me you decide to paint the banister, you will have to scrape off any paint on the ends of the spindles before placing them in the holes on the steps.
Start by fixing the lower banister, adding a dab of glue to the holes in the steps and fitting the banister in place. Do the same with the top banister, making sure all the spindles are pushed in firmly.
Finally, glue the two sections together and hold in place whilst the glue sets.

The final picture shows the staircase in place.

That completes this issue.
