Just a quick upload today.I assume this part is bulkhead. The instructions allow for the door open or door shut, I went for door shut.

Image

Im so glad I spent time knocking the warp out of the piece (see previous posts) given me a nice straight level top.

I messed about with the lights to get different colours etc.

This is the natural colour. External light no flash

Image

Same part but with external light and flash.

Image

Comments welcome

First question.


Step 2 parts d4 & d5 says to sandwich a poly cap in between . Now looked through some bags and found some black caps . There are some that fit into part d5 perfectly . But just hesitant to use one.

Mark over to you

Poly cap is a little black ring, you can see them in the photo with the grease.

Hi Mustang

Thats what I thought.

Image

As per these instructions

Image

Part as indicated by the tip of the file.

Image

And dry fitted

Image

Whilst i waited for the clarification I did the battery box,

Image

Image

I can now go forth and do the poly cap stages.

Best way I also find, if I'm not sure about a part I'll look though the instructions to find out what connects to the part in question. ;)

Think ill find that edition.

Back to the build. With regards to the instructions, I've noted there is a lot of 1:1 drawings . Such as The main drive shaft allignment. Details in next photo's

Latest round of build steps.

Heres the fuel tank with the poly cap fitted.

Image

Now the power plant and the on/off switch

Image

To be fitted to the base of the Tank. As you can see there is room for two motors to be fitted. The left hand set of holes are for the switch. The right hand holes are for the motor. Only one mounting hole is used for the motor, the top right hand one for this build.

Image

The main axle and gear and spacer and a piece of rubber tubing used to make 'stoppers' from.

Image

Another diagram that is 1:1 scale to assist the exact position of the axle which has to be off-set

Image

Axle and gear & spacer in position

Image

Next some tiny 2mm long pieces of the rubber tubing pushed onto the axle. This was really fiddly.

Image

Fully pushed home on the axle

Image

Now for some tiny tiny screws. The large one for mounting the motor the two smaller ones for the switch.

Image

Switch in the mounted position. You can just make out a spare spade connector for additional motor to be fitted.

Image

The motor next . A hint. I ran the mounting screw down the motor mounting pole first to form the thread (self-tapping screw) and then offered up the whole assembly for final fitting. Making sure the engine is true and straight

Image

Now this is my next query :think: Next stage calls for the following parts to be attached and fitted all at the same time

Image

Image

Now if you look carefully at the side tank piece in the bottom left hand corner there is a semi circle with a hole just above it . This is to allow a screw to be inserted to the side of the motor securing it in place. I was thinking screwing the part to the motor first then the upright piece to be glued to the tank then the main side piece (hope that made sense!) as I only have two hands.

Any ideas

Hi Chill.

Might help us if you post a photo of the instruction. As they say a picture paints a thousand words.

Ok yes I don't see why you can't put the SA4 screw in first to hold the motor then do the rest. :think:

Does C4 not clip into D33, or add some glue to hold it in place.

No it doesn't clip in. I was thinking about using the screw and going from there

Well you can only try screwing it in, if not just have to under the screw. No harm in trying.

Indeed less permanent than glue
It's more over for alignment purposes
