Diorama – Sheeting Attached To Studded Side Walls For The Diorama Building

Diorama - Sheeting Attached To Studded Side Walls For The Diorama Building-01Sheeting Attached To Studded Side Walls For The Diorama Building. Let’s attach the wall sheeting to the studded walls, leave the bottom board in the doorways attached for now. Leaving this attached makes it stronger & less chance of it flexing before the glue is set up, we will remove it later.

I attached the studded wall to the textured side of the hardboard because I want that look to show behind the studded wall. Remember I am not painting the inside wall or the studded walls I want to leave it natural so I do not want glue marks on anything. The siding will be attached to the smooth side of the hardboard in the future.

I did both side walls at the same time and then placed them back to back & clamped them with spring clamps. This will help keep the walls from flexing, the hardboard has a tendency to bow or have a slight bend to it. With them clamped back to back this will keep them from flexing & with them glued to the studded wall when the glue dries everything will be nice & straight.
