Stonehurst Tower


It begins..... this tower is a MONSTER..... I am so used to 1/2 scale and 1/4 scale these days...

This will be a Harry Potter themed tower.... not original I know, but my niece's Harry Potter house I built her was my favorite build so far... so this one will be themed that way as well.  It won't belong to any particular character in the series... but will have all the Potterish magical elements we have become familiar with :)

It's so big that I am thinking about not attaching the top two sections permanently so I can move it by myself (or if someday I want to sell it, it can be shipped in two cartons) .... I am contemplating how I would do the wiring if I did this though.  My plan is to tape wire this monster... so I am going to have to consider how to do the wiring if I plan to make this thing come apart in two pieces....

AWESOME... thank you Brae.... I am planning on tape wiring this one... but I still think this would work.....

Thank you!!!!!!

Thanks for that link Brae, Like Kelly, I am wanting to keep my current project so I can separate the levels. I was planning on electrifying each level separately, but I may look into those connectors!

Kelly, I am thinking about using magnets rather than glue to hold mine together, but make it easy to separate when I need to. That will keep it from falling apart at the wrong times. I was wondering if you had any ideas that would work better?

I am covering this entire thing with paperclay... so was hoping to create a "lip" out of clay that the top section will sit in.... I haven't really pondered it much more yet... but magnets is a cool idea.

I thought of a lip too, only made out of wood, but mine would be more difficult to do that on because it's so big. (The one I'm doing is my Japanese Inn). I also thought of making wooden brackets for the back of it, since mine is front opening, but it still could topple over in front, that's when I thought of using magnets. I'm not sure how it's going to work, but I have to figure something out!
