When completed, the model is approximately 9.25 inches (23 cm) high, 9.25 inches (23 cm) wide and 10 inches (26 cm) deep. Much time and effort has gone into the creation of this model of the New Orleans Square Haunted Mansion. The architectural, and artistic details are extremely accurate, however some artistic license was taken, in order to translate the mansion to paper. Please note that this project is not recommended for children. It requires a moderate degree of skill, and the use of an X-acto blade, which is extremely dangerous. I HIGHLY recommend wearing protective eyewear when using an X-acto blade! Tips can snap and fly! When printing the model, be sure that your printer is set to print at 100%. Each sheet has a logo, and page number graphic, which can be compared with other sheets, to ensure that all of your pieces are printed at a uniform size. Color printing is recommended. There are many pages to print, so be sure you have enough paper and ink! This model was designed to be printed on EPSON Matte Paper Heavyweight. Using plain paper is not recommended. The files are in .pdf format, so you will need a computer with Adobe Acrobat Reader installed. I recommend using white glue, and applying it with a toothpick. Don’t use too much glue! Needle-nose tweezers are also very useful. Become acquainted with the various pieces, and study the directions before you begin. The text instructions that accompany the illustrations are limited, so you will need a keen eye and a good sense of spatial orientation to assemble the New Orleans Square Haunted Mansion. There are many folds in the model, and it is recommended that you score the fold first, using a dull X-acto, or other fine, blunt tipped instrument. Black dashed lines represent a mountain fold (a fold which point upward), and orange dashed lines represent a valley fold (the fold points downward). The orange dashed lines are accompanied by a red “+” at each end. These are to be used as pin guides to , poke small holes at the “+” flip the sheet over, and score between the holes for a clean valley fold. To avoid confusion, after cutting out a part, lightly write the part numbers on the back with a pencil. I created this model for my own enjoyment, but choose to share it with others. By downloading this model, you agree that the success of the final product is primarily determined by the patience and skill of the builder. Have fun building your New Orleans Square Haunted Mansion, and good luck!
