3D model description

Tweedledee and Tweedledum are fictional characters in an English nursery rhyme and in Lewis Carroll's 1871 book Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There.

Tweedledee and Tweedledum appear in the 1951 version of Alice in Wonderland, representing the sun and moon as they tell Alice the story of The Walrus and the Carpenter.

No supports are required. If you have the proper filament colors, no painting is needed.

The assembled model is 235mm tall.

Enjoy!

Printing and assembly tips

Printing tips
1-No supports are required

2-The stl files are loaded as two zip files and a single stl for the base. All the Tweedledee parts start with t1 and are zipped together. All the Tweedledum parts start with t2 and are zipped together as well.

3-Some of the Tweedledee and Tweedledum parts are the same but more often than not they are different even if they may look similar. I strongly suggest that the parts are stored in separate containers after printing to ensure they do not get mixed up during assembly.

4-There are a number of pieces that absolutely need rafts or brims. I used rafts for the socks, pole pieces and eye_blacks. The pole pieces may look difficult to print, however they printed with no issue at all using a raft. Use your judgement for the hair and hands. Remember, all the flat bottoms are hidden during assembly, so any 'ugly' bottom will be hidden.

..
Assembly tips:

1-Take your time gluing the model together, taking care that you work in stages to ensure everything falls into place in the end. Patience.

2-I used E6000 sticky craft glue to put this model together. The sticky glue allows more time to position the parts than a fast drying superglue.

3-Glue in the shoes to the base and let the glue fully dry before attaching the rest of the model to them.

4-Personally, I completely made each of the Tweedle's separately, except for the socks and shoes. I then glued the socks to the shoes and before the glue dried I glued the two prebuilt models all into the socks at the same time. This was to ensure that everything would fit in case something was slightly misaligned. Prop it all up with some tape and be sure that the model is standing straight (the hats should be level to the ground).

5-Due to their size, the flag and flag pole do not 'snap' together but gently fit while the glue does the work. Patience.

6-When inserting the tongue, be sure the flat side is facing back and the indent is down. I created this model and still had to look at my notes when inserting this part!

7-Note that both heads are purposely turned a bit but the ties are not. So the tie fits into the collar depressions nicely but does not fully look straight against the head.

8-Refer to the assembly diagram in the pictures section as well as the uploaded pictures for putting the model together. The model is meant to be glued.

Do not hesitate to ask questions, feedback is essential to making better models.
