My first papercraft ever! Howls Flying Castle :) It took me about 2 months to finish :@ It's worth the effort! To complete the magic, the wings move when free from the base!

Useless? Maybe.
Ridiculously cool to look at? Hells to the yes.


1) Link to download the 26pg castle AND English assembly directions:


2) The other directions page that helped the MOST:


3) I bestow my luck upon anyone who attempts this! Your friends and family will think you're insane, but just remember to shower and eat every now and then, cool?

Ah yes. My friend who's 52 was telling me about Howls Moving Castle and I must say... this is the best movie I had ever seen. Besides The Nightmare Before Christmas. I really love your work.

you did a great job at his.  *ponders where you started it at  o.O *

I wonder if anyone has attempted to use the paper directions and create a clay version of it and then to assemble then detail that way...
