Orc castle on fire... dragon attack

Hello! I'm a little confused on how the base fits into the castle/cliff portion. The base has an overhang on the top and is 207mm in diameter, but the castle is 200mm in diameter. The confusion arises from the pictures, where it looks like the castle portion is inset into the base? I've arranged it in meshmixer, screenshot included. Does it rest on top of that overhang, or am I missing a step in assembly?

Also, does the fire cone attach to the castle or the base? The inner disc on the base looks like it matches the diameter on the fire cone, but if I put it all the way down there it doesn't fit against the castle like your pictures.

I think you are referring to the stand/bottom part? So - turn this 180 deg on Y and try again. There is a space for lamps on the stand - but whole stl file is up/down rotated. I printed the fire as vase mode with 2 bottom layers. Lights were placed in the space which I have prepared in the stand. This overhang is for the bottom - to lay nicely on the table and filter any light which could go out.

Ohhhh, I see. Thank you so much for the quick response. That makes a lot more sense!

Love the paintwork!!

My wife did a good job with the dragon. It looks much better in reality... :)
