STAGE 53 – ATTACHING THE INSTRUMENT PANEL

PICTURE 31

The parts included this time are

Instrument Panel x 1

We Also Need from Earlier Stages:

Underbody (Stage 51)

Dashboard (Stage 52)

M2.6 x 6mm self tapping screws x 2 (Stage 50)

LED Tester (Stage 28)

There are 2 wires coming from the Instrument Panel and these are tested using the LED socket n the test board and all works just fine.

PICTURE 32

We then pass these 2 wires down through the holes in the dashboard.

PICTURES 33 & 34

Really important to label the screws as they arrive or trying to work out which ones are needed becomes very difficult as many of them look so alike.

Here we use 2 x M2.6 x 6mm Self Tapping to secure the Instrument Panel to the Dashboard.

PICTURE 35

And this is what the final assembly looks like.

STAGE 54 –THE BONNET 1

PICTURE 36

The parts included this time are

Bonnet

Rain Guard Plate

Left Bonnet Hinge

Right Bonnet Hinge

M1.7 x 4mm countersunk screws x 3

M2.3 x 6mm self Tapping screws x 2

PICTURE 37

We first off identify the left and right hinges.

PICTURE 38

These are installed on the bonnet using M1.7 x 4mm countersunk screws.

PICTURE 39

We then take the rain guard and remove the tape covering the self-adhesive strips already fitted to this part.

PICTURES 40 & 41

The rain guard is then press fitted into place and that completes this section of the build.

So, finishing up this pack its with some frustration that I still do not have the build guide for either this one or the Harley.

Also irritated by the fact the build guide is so sure that radiator pipe fits OVER the oil filter rather than under. Its possible I may have got this totally wrong but installing it the way I have looks correct so time will tell when more stages get added.

Well that’s it for now. Stay Safe and Happy Modelling

PACK 17 - LAMBORGHINI COUNTACH LP 500S – 14th JUNE 2020

Well here we go with Pack 17.

Similar to last month this pack arrived without the instruction guide.
Since learnt that these are being discontinued in all of the kits and you are left to download the build instructions from the model site itself.

STAGE 55 – THE BONNET 2

PICTURE 1

The parts included this time are

Bonnet Strut

Bonnet Mesh L

Bonnet Mesh R

Guard Plate A

Guard Plate B

Guard Plate C

Double Sided Tape

Agip Logo Sticker

2 x 5mm countersunk Screws x 2

2 x 4mm countersunk Screws x 5


We also need to collect some previous parts – namely

PICTURE 2

Bonnet (Stage 54)


PICTURE 3

We start off by fixing 2 lengths of the double-sided tap to the sides of the Bonnet.

The lower tape you can see in this picture needs to be fixed so it matches the angle of the bonnet side.

PICTURES 4 & 5

Making sure we have the correct grill (for this side the one with the mounting post for the bonnet stay (, and press fit onto the tape we have just put in place.

We then screw this grill panel in place using 2 of the 2 x 4mm countersunk screws.

We then do exactly the same on the right side of the bonnet.

PICTURES 6 & 7

We then take the Bonnet Stay and 1 x 2 x 5mm countersunk screws. This part needs to be screwed into place allowing the stay rod to still have some movement.

PICTURES 8 & 9

Next, we take the 3 guard plates, and ensuring we have them in size order, we remove the already installed tape cover and press fit these into place on the bonnet.

PICTURE 10

And when in place this is what the bonnet looks like.

PICTURE 11

Last part to do on the bonnet is to fix the Agip label into place and that is all that is needed in this build stage.

STAGE 56 – THE LEFT AIR DUCT HOSE

PICTURE 12

The Parts Included This Time Are

Left Rear Quarter Window

Left Air Intake

Left Air Duct Hose

Left Outlet Louvre

Right Outlet Louvre

Left Air Duct

PICTURES 13 & 14

We first off remove the “3m” paper from the already installed double sided tape.

The connection between the hose and the hose inlet are keyed so very little chance of putting these together incorrectly.

PICTURE 15

Once joined this is what the assembly looks like.

STAGE 57 – LEFT REAR WHEEL BOX

PICTURES 16, 17 & 18

The parts included this time are

Left Rear Wheel Box

Left Hot Air Deflector

Left Intake Housing

2.6mm x 6mm screws x 9

First disappointment with the kit so far in that the rear panel has some “bubbles” in the paint finish.

I just cannot be bothered to raise it as an issue and hopefully it will polish out with a touch of Novus polish.

PICTURES 19 & 20

We start with the left rear quarter window which has 4 tabs that are press fitted into the matching holes in the wheel box panel.

PICTURES 21, 22 & 23

We then take the Hose assembly, left air intake and left intake housing and fix all 3 component parts to the Wheel Box

PICTURES 25 & 26

We then take the left hot air deflector and screw this into position on the Wheel Box.

PICTURE 27

Sadly, another disappointment with this part.

It’s the Left Outlet Louvres and you are told to press fit the 4 pegs on this part into the 4 holes in the Wheel Box.

Unfortunately, on the part I have the part will not fully clip into place at its from end and sits proud of the surrounding bodywork.

May have to resort to gluing this part in place but very, very reluctant to use any of the superglue I presently have as it’s the sort that leaves a white fog on everything.

So, there we have it for this month with a fairly quick and easy assembly of this pack.

Bit disappointed with the paint on the wheel box as so far all of the parts supplied have been of the highest quality

Until the next time Stay Safe and Happy Modelling.

PACK 18 - LAMBORGHINI COUNTACH LP 500S – 17th JULY 2020

Well here we go with Pack 18.

Similar to last month this pack arrived without the instruction guide.

Since learnt that these are being discontinued in all of the kits and you are left to download the build instructions from the model site itself

However, to save myself the cost of paper and ink printing out these instructions I have managed to track down a set of the build guides from someone that has already completed this model. So, for that I am extremely grateful


STAGE 58 – THE RIGHT AIR DUCT HOSE

PICTURE 1

The parts included this time are

Right Rear Quarter Window
Right Air Intake
Right Air Duct
Right Air Duct Hose
Rear Body Support

PICTURE 2

We start off by removing the backing paper disc from the double-sided tape already in place at the end of the Right Air Duct Hose.

PICTURE 3

We then join the Right Air Duct Hose to the Right Air Duct.

These parts are “Keyed” so there is little chance of getting the assembly wrong.

And that has to be one of the easiest and quickest stages so far in the build.

STAGE 59 – THE RIGHT REAR WHEEL BOX

PICTURE 4

The Parts Included This Time Are

Right Rear Wheel Box
Right Intake Housing
Right Hot Air Deflector

From Previous Issues we also need the following:

Right Outlet Louvres (Stage 56)
Right Air Duct Hose (Stage 58)
Right Rear Quarter Window (Stage 58)
Right Air Intake (Stage 58)
2.6 x 6mm Screws x 4 (Stage 57)

PICTURES 5 & 6

We start by taking the Right Rear Quarter Window and press fitting this into place in the Rear Wheel Box.

Gently does this for fear of cracking the part if too much effort is exerted.

PICTURE 7

We then fit the Right Air Intake and secure this from underneath with 1 of the 2.6 x 6mm screws.

PICTURE 8

Next up is the Right Air Duct Hose we assembled in the previous stage.
This is fitted in place and again secured with 1 x 2.6 x 6mm screws.

PICTURE 9

The right intake is then press fitted over the 4 pegs on the rear wheel box.

Nice secure fit to this part.

PICTURES 10 & 11

The Right Hot Air Deflector is next up and this sits down very neatly over the position its designed for.

Its held in place with 2 x 2.6 x 6mm screws.

PICTURES 12 & 13

Last part of this stage is to press fit the Right Outlet Louvres into position on the Rear Wheel Box.

This went into place just perfectly and the fit (arrows in pic 13) is spot on.

Sadly, the left Rear Wheel Box I had issues with and this part does not fit flush so on that a dab of superglue will have to be employed.

And that is this stage complete.

STAGE 60 – THE REAR VIEW MIRROR

PICTURES 14 & 15

The parts included this time are

Windscreen
Strong Double-Sided Tape
Mirror Housing
Mirror Base
Mirror

PICTURE 16

We start by removing the backing paper from the rear of the mirror and carefully aligning the mirror with the mirror base before pressing the 2 parts together.

The mirror is fractionally smaller than the backing so we want to align these 2 parts so we get a neat, symmetrical edge all the way around.

PICTURE 17

All that we then need to do in order to complete this stage is to press the mirror/backing into the mirror housing.

And that is it for this pack. All very quick and simple on this occasion.

Until the next time Stay Safe and Happy Modelling.
