Issue/Stage 50 Contains – Laser Generator LED, Laser cannon Housing (Inner Half), Forward Generator Laser End Cap, Forward Generator Inner & Outer Half, Rear Laser Generator, Rear Laser Generator Inner & Outer Half, Laser Generator Union, Laser Cannon suppressor Mount Halves, Laser Cannon Flashback Suppressor, Laser cannon Emitter, Laser cannon Tip, Fibre Optic.

Making the Cannon


Take the seven parts of the laser generator casing, plus the LED. Fit the LED into the small hole in the end of the forward generator cap and gently push so the LED’s shoulder sits on the rim and the tip protrudes from the end cap. Press the halves of the forward generator body as shown with the LED wire running through the holes at each end. Once the halves have been assembled, pull the cable at the end allowing the end cap to fit over so that the lug in the cap fits into the slot as shown. Feed the central union over the other end of the wire, noting the projecting lug, which only allows to fit in one position. Now feed the wire into the groove as shown and take the rear end cap which also has a slot and push into the central union, leaving the wire coming out of the groove.
Take the two halves of the rear generator body and fit the internal pins into the matching sockets, pushing the two halves together. Align the slot in the thick end of the generator body and push the cap into place.

Align the laser generator with the half of the cannon housing you assembled in stage 49, fitting the two pins into the sockets in the housing. Fit the second half of the housing, supplied with this issue and push them together ensuring the LED wire comes out through the notch in the side of the housing. Take the rear end cap pushing on the end firmly in place.

Fit half of the suppressor mount into the rectangular flange on the end of the laser cannon emitter and push together the two halves of the suppressor mount matching up the pins and sockets. Fit the suppressor over the emitter and press into the suppressor mount, lining up the lug with the notch in the mount. Fit the smaller end of the clear tip into the end of the emitter. Push the tip of the fibre optic into the hole in the end of the laser generator. Push the end of the laser generator over the fibre optic, aligning the “D” shaped hole with the matching end of the generator. Press the end of the laser generator onto place, fitting the two side tubes onto the matching holes beside the radial fins. Feed the fibre optic cable through the barrel assembly and press the end of the laser cannon tube into the end of the laser generator. Finally, slip the suppressor/tip assembly over the end of the fibre optic and press it into the barrel.
You can test the laser cannon using the battery pack as before.

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

Issue/Stage 51 Contains – Top Skin, Trailing Edge Detail, Power Couplings X2, Laser Cannon Support, Plant on Detail X3.

Assembling the Wing


Take the lower skin, laser cannon support and plant on details. The detail labelled “A” in the diagram fits into the recess as shown. Fit all the details to the wing as shown in the diagram.

The back of each power coupling disc has a “D” shaped mounting lug in the centre. One has two recesses in the rim, the other has one larger recess. Thake the one with the single recess and fit to the wing as shown, aligning the lug so that the recess fits over the long rib in the wing. Take the second disc and fit over the other rib in the wing.
Align the trailing edge detail as shown and match up its five tabs with the shots as shown. Press the detail firmly into place.

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

Issue/Stage 52 Contains – Trailing Edge Conduit, Outer Wing Frame, Leading-Edge Support, Trailing Edge Wiring, Leading Edge Wiring, Wing Root Brace, XW03 Screws (X3).

Assembling the Wing


Start by taking the metal frame, the two sets of wiring and conduits, two of the XW03 screws and the wing assembly from stage 51. Line up the metal frame as shown, matching the holes with the pins moulded onto the wing and secure with two XW03 screws.
Take the wing root brace and line up the two holes on the back with the matching pins on the wing and press firmly into place. Now take the trailing edge wiring, which has angled ends and line up the three holes and press the wiring into the pins as shown. Fit the trailing edge conduit, lining up the three pins with the three holes as shown.
Fit the leading-edge conduit as shown below pushing it firmly into the pins in the wing. Finally, take the leading-edge wiring, noting which way round it goes and push into place as before.

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