The model was made for some children that I tutor in Year 3. I made it myself and it took a solid day and a half to make. It is very time consuming but the end result is very rewarding. I started off with glue but resorted to double sided tape - quick and clean. The next model, I will use a combination of both - less expensive.

As for building them with children, patience will DEFINITELY be needed. A Stanley knife or scalpel and steel rule is needed for neat, straight edges; also something to make the creases. When building, only cut out what you need to complete one section. Don't cut it all out at once; you will get in a muddle as the numbers are not printed on the pieces you cut out but on the waste.

My first little one loved it and it was a good talking point as he spotted different things. I also used it for positional work (i.e. in front of, behind the) and it brought in comprehension and spelling. I intend taking a photo and label up the buildings on a copy so that they have to work out positions that way as well.

I checked out on the WEB for accuracy of the model and was pleasantly surprised to see the entrance gates of the model are exactly like a fort still standing in Germany. The building layout was also confirmed as accurate on other WEB sites. I plan to build other models as they come up on the curriculum. My verdict, forget the kids and have fun youself - I did.

As part of my sons project he had to build a fort!!! I had images of disaster trying to build from egg cartons etc and also didn't have all the nescessary cardborad required! So I decided to resort to the there "must be something online", and the Usborne Fort popped up. This is a good size and reasonably priced, however, it was a bit fiddly - lots of cutting and sticking tabs etc, but overall quite enjoyable. When it was completed it did look pretty impressive. I suppose my only recommendation to Usborne would be that the cut outs are "press outs" instead, reason being although my son is 9 he was struggling with the cutting out bit as quite detailed, and this took the longest time in making the fort.

Over the last couple of months, my 5 year old and I have been happily building our fort together at the rate of a building / wall a weekend. [Each building takes about an hour].

He does the cutting and trimming and I do the folding and glueing. Each week he's got increasingly more dextrous & requires less supervision / assistance.

[There are some e.g. windows / doors that needs significant dexterity].

He's learning lots of things on the way - e.g. to find the next pieces based on the numbers I show him on the instruction page.

He likes playing with the card soldiers in our fort and is picking up the ideas behind the different buildings. Highly enjoyable time together!

This model appears well researched and easy to follow instructions. I do not intend to make the whole model, but was looking for some examples of Roman buildings for a Sunday School Project. I will probably adapt the buildings by pasting the sections onto thicker card, and not using the fold in tabs to assemble and secure roof. As in all card models, accurate cutting is essential. A tip - stick a strip of decorators' masking tape to the back of your steel ruler, makes it less likely to slip when cutting out.

This model is huge and will take days to complete, so if you're looking for a quick project, this may not be suitable. Me and my nine-year-old son are having lots of fun building the fort. So far, we've spent about 6 hours spread over three days putting it together and it's only half finished. It already looks very impressive. We're using a foam board as a base, which allows for the model to be portable. My son can't wait to take it to school with him and share it with his class. Great advice from one of the reviewers here who suggested using double-sided tape to stick the parts together. If using liquid glue, make sure it's a quick drying, high-tack glue - I think you would struggle with just regular white glue. I'm very impressed with this product. Great value for just £5 from Amazon!

Fantastic! I remembered these kits from when I was a child and it didn't disappoint. Fantastic rainy day fun. Adult help is required for younger children but I enjoyed making the fort too. My son now loves playing with the toy he made.

In its defence ( pun intended ) it whiled away a few hours until I realised it was never going to be substantial enough at which point I gave up and wondered if I could use matchsticks instead.
