Viking/Anglo-Saxon Forge build instructions.

Build Instructions:

As always - if you intend to paint the model, you should paint all of the parts BEFORE assembly.  It's much easier that way.  I recommend painting the solid "inner" wall pieces in a creamy white - the back wall and forge parts would be made of stone - so grey with black and white dry-brushing.  Then dry brush with browns and a little dull green to make it look dirty.   All of the other wooden beams should be in a dark brown, possibly very lightly dry brushed with a mid grey.  The various tools need to be painted in a variety of colors - I used light brown for then handles and wooden parts and gunmetal for the metal bits.   The fireplace and chimney need to be black on the insides - I put splashes of bright red and yellow on the bed of coals at the back of the forge because those would be glowing.

 

Parts:

Find the back wall and the seven pieces of the fireplace/chimney:

Flip the back wall part over - so the edged crack lines are underneath and the plain side is uppermost - glue the six side pieces in place (with the etching facing outwards):

Then glue the front piece in place:

Locate the three large timbers that make up the front of the forge and glue those together - set them aside on a FLAT surface while the glue sets:

Locate the side wall parts - glue them together as shown:

Now locate the inner frame parts - note that one A-frame has two pins sticking out at the side - those locate into the side walls 

The remaining A-frame is glued behind the front wall and the two diagonal pieces onto the back wall:

...Glue the roof beams into the slots in the A-frames:

The ridge piece (sorry - I didn't grab a photo!) slots into the hole in the chimney and into the two remaining A-frames.

Next - locate the pieces that make up the bed of the fire and glue them together as shown:

Glue that into the underside of the chimney:

Find some of the random twigs and branches and glue those onto the front of the hot coals:

Next assemble the tool rack:

And hang some of the tools from it:

Find the pieces of the anvil (there are two of them):

Glue the sides onto the center piece - then the whole thing onto the plinth:

Lcate the parts for the quenching pit (this would have been a deeper pit with dirty water in it...paint the base accordingly) - glue the sides around the outside of the base: 

Locate the parts for the bellows:

Glue those together as shown:

Locate the parts for the buckets (there are several of these) - glue the three layers together:

There are a bunch of sticks and twigs for feeding the fire - or just to scatter around as clutter:

...

Glue the sod roof over the top of the building - then trim off the excess with scissors.

ALL DONE!
