Harry Potter Papercraft: Quidditch Field

Back in 2008, a German model railroading enthusiast (who is also a Harry Potter fan) wowed the online papercrafting community by releasing a complete N scale paper model of Hogwarts Castle. Part of the release included a paper model of the Quidditch Field at Hogwarts. The Quidditch Field is a papercraft gem that may have been overlooked by many people in the larger release of the castle, so today I am giving it the recognition I think it deserves. ^^ The template for the Quidditch Field may be found here along with the templates for the other buildings at Hogwarts.

    1. After cutting out the seat piece, cut a slit along the right side of the light brown seats. Fold as the dashed lines indicate. The wood grain textured square will be the floor that the stepped seats rest on. Glue the white tab to the bottom of the wood grain square. Then glue the assembled part into the hole in the column.

  7. Hi. I was just wondering, I wanted to make this for my daughter├Ęs party, although the model seemed very small, is there any possible way I could increase the size without affecting it's shape?

    1. The model as designed is model railway N scale. It is possible to increase the scale through several different methods, however all methods are labor intensive and the textures of the model will become pixelated in the process. The best method in my opinion would be to enlarge the template in Photoshop then rearrange the parts so they fit to whatever size paper you will be printing on.

    1. Depends on your experience level. I estimate around 3 hours. Maybe more if you aren't experienced with building papercraft.
