Assembling the Engine


Take the lower front engine casing and the retro-thrust nozzle. The nozzle has two pins that fit into the mounting post in the casing. Press the parts together as shown. Take the five remaining engine components and fit the pins on the upper half of the gyro cone into the holes in the horizontal vane, making sure the vane is the correct way around. Fit the lower half of the gyro cone over the projecting pins as shown. Press the parts together so they fit flush. Fit the two pins on the upper half of the gyro cone into the matching holes in the upper shroud and push in place. Then fit the longer pin on the cooling vane into the hole in the lower half of the gyro cone.

Installing the Engine

Take the two sub-assemblies you have just made, plus the engine mount and two XW06 screws.
Align the upper shroud with the two curved slots in the semi-circular intake on the engine mount and press the shroud into place. Next, match up the two lugs on the front engine casing with the two holes in the engine mount and fit into place, lining up the pin on the end of the cooling vane into the hole in the front of the casing. Holding the parts together, turn the assembly over and fit two of the screws provided through the holes in the engine mount and into the engine casing as shown.

Fitting the Doors

Take the lower rear engine casing, which has two locating pins and two lugs that match holes in the engine mount and press the casing into place. Turn the assembly over and drive two of the XW06 screws through the holes as shown.
Next, take the two undercarriage doors, two hinge retainers and four XW06 screws. (The doors and hinge retainers are numbered. Make sure you have the hinge retainer and door of the same number)
Line up the right undercarriage door as shown, matching its projecting hinge with the holes in the engine mount. Fit the hinges through the holes and hook the pins into the grooves on the other side of the engine mount. Holding the door in place, take the hinge retainer as shown and fit it over the two lugs between the hinge pins and secure it with two XW06 screws.
Now take the left undercarriage door and fit it as you did with the previous door as shown.
Once assembled, check that both undercarriage doors open and close smoothly.

This issue/stage is now complete. Store any remaining parts in a stage labelled bag.
