STAGE 55 – THE FRONT ASSEMBLY

PICTURE 12

In this stage we get:

Cross Wrench

Frame Axle 72.5mm

Frame Axle 77.5mm

We also need to recover:

Stage 32 – Front Wheel

Stage 4 – Front Brake Disc

Stage 23 – Front Wheel Hub

Stage 41 – Front Assembly

PICTURE 13

We need to go searching for the front brake disc and Front Wheel Hub.

PICTURE 14

Also needed is the front wheel and tyre.

PICTURE 15

We press fit the front brake disc into place on the wheel. This is quite a tight fit but it does need to be pressed well into place otherwise the wheel assembly will not fit between the front forks.

PICTURE 16

The front wheel hub is just a press fit into place.

PICTURE 17

We then take the front assembly, again this has been safely stored away to prevent any damage to it.

PICTURE 18

The wheel is then placed between the front forks and the axle passed through the whole assembly and secured with the supplied nut.

STAGE 56 – THE REAR WHEEL

PICTURE 19

In this stage we get:

Rear Wheel

Until we get the rear tyre in Stage 59 this part is just stored away as there is nothing to do in this stage.

And so, ends this month’s update.

Its really nice to now have 2 major parts assembled and it allowed me to re-cycle some of the many boxes all of these parts have been stored in.

Until the next time Stay Safe and Happy Modelling.

Little bit behind posting at the moment due to a mailing issue.

Had the next set of Harley and lambo parts last week but no build guide in either pack.

I did report it and they have said it should be easy to resolve but not received snything as yet.

I could just build the parts from the official online one but hoping to get the proper instruction books.

Jaguar i have not posted as mine is nothing exceptional but had that paclk as well last week so on that one its just one more pack and its finished.

Mayflower i was going to post but there was a problem uploading pictures, now resolved i see. That is coming along well but slow. Nearly have the lower hull sealed with the first plank layer. Aiming to post some more on that at the weekend as we have the bank holiday and i also managed to get Tuesday as a days leave.

Tony
