PACK 2

Stage 6

Contents: Road Wheel Inner, Road Wheel Outer, Front Right Fender, Treads and Pins, Suspension Arm, Hub Cap, Spring, Axle Bolt, Nut, Washer, Split Washer, Washer Screw, and Screw.

Assemble the track links and pins onto a scrap wooden board so as not to damage your work surface.

Place two treads and one pin on the board. One end of each pin is smooth, the other is cross-cut. Always insert the smooth end first when joining treads together.

Before assembling the treads, make sure that they fit together and that the holes in both parts align to allow the pin to pass through. With the holes in the treads aligned, insert the smooth end of the pin into the hole. Hold the treads together and slowly push the pin through the holes.

To get the pin all the way into the treads, lightly tap it with your hammer until it is fully inserted. Continue to build the tracks using the third tread and second pin from this stage. Repeat Steps 4 to 8 to attach a third tread to the first two.

Repeat the steps again to connect the remaining two treads to the others, creating a length of five treads. Place the remaining pin through the holes at the end of the treads to avoid losing it.

This stage is now complete, carefully store the assembly and any unused parts in a stage labelled bag.

Stage 7

Contents: Turret Base, Screws.

For this stage, you will need the turret base, the side bin and the two screws from Stage 3.

Locate the two holes on the projecting tab towards the rear of the turret base. Locate the corresponding holes in the bottom of the side bin, then align the holes of the bin with those of the turret base and insert one of the screws into one of the holes. Tighten the screw and hold the bin in position, take care not to overtighten the screw as this may damage the parts. Tighten a second screw into the other hole. Again, be careful not to overtighten it.

The bin should now be secured to the base.

You can now test-fit the turret on the base to see how the parts will fit together.

This stage is now complete, carefully store the assembly and any unused parts in a stage labelled bag.

Stage 8

Contents: Road Wheel Inner, Road Wheel Outer, Right External Fuel Tank, Hub Cap, Suspension Arm, Spring, Axle Bolt, Nut, Washer, Split Washer, Washer Screw, Treads, Pins and Screws.

Take the front right fender from Stage 6 and the first right external fuel tank from this stage. To keep the parts together safely until you need them, join them with masking tape. If you don’t want to do this, make sure you store them together to avoid getting them mixed up with other parts later on.

The road wheels consist of two halves and a hub cap. The ridges on the inside of one wheel half correspond with the notches on the inside of the other.

The wheel halves are made up of these components, a rim, a tyre and a bearing, they are supplied pre-assembled. Don’t combine them yet, just store the parts safely together.

Now take the assembled section of track from the previous stage and tread and pins supplied with this stage. When assembling the track, you will again need a wooden board and your small metal hammer. Before proceeding, ensure that the holes in the treads are open and can house the pins.

Remove the free pin from the assembled track section. Now fit one of the new treads to the track section, align the holes, push the pin through them and hammer it lightly into place. Now connect the remaining treads to the track section. Place the remaining pin into the last tread so that you don’t lose it.

This stage is now complete, carefully store the assembly and any unused parts in a stage labelled bag.

Stage 9

Contents: Smoke Mortars, Machine Gun Barrel, Treads and Pins, Screws.

Prepare the turret and the sprue with the five smoke mortars. Using the side cutters, carefully separate each smoke mortar from the sprue. When removing the mortars, you may find that there are some burrs left on them. Carefully remove these with a craft knife.

Half tighten a screw into the hole at the end of each mortar and then remove it. This will make it easier to tighten the screws in later.

Insert the first mortar into its hole in the turret, then tighten a screw into the hole from the inside of the turret to secure the first mortar. Insert the remaining four mortars in their corresponding holes and secure them with the screws on the inside of the turret.

Insert the gun barrel into the hole at the front of the turret. You can fix this in place with superglue.

This stage is now complete, carefully store the assembly and any unused parts in a stage labelled bag.

Stage 10

Contents: Right Front Skirt, Right Rear Skirt, Washer Screws, Rollers, Brackets, Treads and Pins.

You need the first right external fuel tanks from Stage 8, the right front skirt and a screw from this stage.

Position the skirt and the first fuel tank in front of you, aligning the post and hole. Place the fuel tank onto the skirt, inserting the post into the hole. Insert one of the washer screws into the hole in the post. Carefully tighten the screw into place.

You can see how the front right fender will fit with the other two parts.

This stage is now complete, carefully store the assembly and any unused parts in a stage labelled bag.

Stage 11

Contents: The Hull

For this stage of the assembly you will need the hull, the right front skirt, the front right fender, three screws (1 from Stage 6 and 2 from Stage 8).

Before you begin, you first need to remove the first right external fuel tank from the skirt. To do this, remove the screw that fixes the two parts together. Partly tighten the screw back into the hole in the skirt so you don’t misplace it.

Align the three posts on the front right fender with the three holes in the hull as indicated in the instructions. Tighten a screw into the indicated hole to secure the front fender onto the hull. Now take the first right external fuel tank, aligning the posts on the underside with the two holes in the hull.
Insert and tighten the two remaining screws into the holes in place.

This stage is now complete, carefully store the assembly and any unused parts in a stage labelled bag.
