Thanks guys. It does have lots of nice details. It's going to be a cracker when it's finished.
Cheers

On with Pack 4!

Stage 24 gives us an electrical panel.

Image

Glue the floor and panel into the cabinet.

Image

Glue the door handle in place with superglue.

Image

I found the the door inner wouldn't fit as the square moulding was fouling on the magnet. A quick trim with a craft knife sorted this!

Image

Then the door went together perfectly.

Image

Glue the door in place and that completes this stage.

Image

Stage 25 gives us the body midsection and water supply panel.

Image

Fit the electrical panel just assembled into the body midsection.

Image

Now add the water supply panel along with the emergency light, water valves and hand wheel.

Image

Add the upper and lower sep and the support. These were all superglued in place, and all added simultaneously to ensure that the steps and support all lined up properly.

Image

Then the side panel was added along with the road cone. (I jumped ahead in the instructions a little here, in case you're wondering why things are out of sequence.)

Image

Add the details to the right water supply panel and fix this in place. Pay close attention to the supply elbow as it's possible to get this the wrong way round.

Image

Add the side panel and step to complete the stage.

Image

Stage 26 gives us the right outrigger.

Image

Assemble the light and fix it to the outrigger.

Image

Then the outrigger is screwed to the mid section with a couple of screws.

Image

That's about half way through Pack 4. I'll finish the pack shortly.
Cheers

On with Pack 4.

Stage 27 Gives us the body midsection roof and electrical panel

Image

Add the electrical panel to the compartment (which I forgot to photograph!) then glue the door and handle in place.

Image

Now push the panel into the body. This photo also shows the panel I forgot to photo....

Image

Next we fit the roof. I used superglue to make sure this stayed in place, although the instructions didn't mention it.

Image

Fit the pike pole brackets and clamps. I glued these all in place.

Image

Add the first pike pole to complete the stage.

Image

Stage 28 gives us the left outrigger and another pike pole.

Image

Fitting the outrigger is a repeat of stage 26.

Image

Now add the second pike pole and the turntable base that was supplied in issue 24. The base is screwed from underneath.

Image

Stage 29 gives us a heavy midsection base. Presumably this is to make sure the model doesn't topple when the ladder is extended. You also get a neat little tool to press the buttons in the cab. Idea for those of us who don't have 1/24 scale fingers!

Image

This is screwed into the body midsection with 3 screws.

Image

Stage 30 gives us the box frame and rear body front panel.

Image

Glue the canister detail and fluid tank to the front panel.

Image

This completes the stage, and the Pack!
Cheers

Thank number1. I've got Pack five on the shelf, but it's going to have to wait a little as I need to get some other stuff done!
