Building the Low Cistern Toilet kit

1/24th scale 1/48th scale Instructions

Hello! I'm going to take you step by step through building our Low Cistern Toilet kit. I'm using the 1/24th scale version in these photos. The 1/48th model follows the same steps without the separate handle.

You will need:

  • snips or side cutters
  • acrylic paints
  • superglue
  • a wooden box or similar, at right angles to the work surface
  1. Begin by painting your pieces. Don't forget, a good quality primer and top coat really help! Leave the handle on its support for ease of painting.
  2. Use a drop of liquid Superglue to attach the lid to the toilet base.
  3. Attach the template to something solid and upright using tape. I'm using a little wooden drawer. Then put the base down on the marked footprint.
  4. Put a drop of glue on the bottom end of the cistern pipe.
  5. Use the upright box and the printed shape to help you keep the correct alignment as you slide the cistern down onto the base. Leave for a few minutes to dry.
  6. Lie the toilet on its back. Use snips to cut the handle free of the support.
  7. Dip the end of the handle in a spot of liquid superglue, then insert into the hole. Keep it steady for a few seconds until the glue takes.
  8. Finished :)

If you'd like to buy this kit, or a finished, painted model, I have them available in 1/24th and 1/48th scales (and in 1/144th, with no assembly needed!) I hope this was helpful. Let me know in the comments what you think.
