Issue/Stage 61 contains – Lower Skin, Inner Edge Strip and XW02 Screws (x4).

Assembling the Wing

Take the wing assembly, together with the engine cover and the two edging strips. Start with the outer edging strip. The three pins on the underside fit into matching holes on the outer side of the engine recess. Press firmly into place. Take the inner edging strip that also has pins that fit into the fixing holes and push into place as shown.
Now take the complete laser cannon from stage 50, and three XW02 screws supplied. Feed the plug on the end of the wire from the laser cannon as push it through the hole near the wingtip. Feed the wire down through the hole and line up the three mounting lugs and two locating pins on the cannon with the matching holes near the wingtip. Press the pins firmly into place and hold the cannon while you turn the assembly over. Secure the cannon with three XW02 screws as shown. Now plug the lead into the socket located next to the hole in the wing and place the wire in the channel neatly beside it. Check the cannon wiring is working be connection the cable to the battery box as shown. (Note that there is also a second plug for the engine lights.) The laser cannon should now light up. If it doesn’t, check the connection in the previous steps.
You can now fit the lower skin, which is held in place by eight locating pins that fit into the wing frames. Press firmly into position until it fits flush.

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

Take the centre front instrument panel and fit it into the front console top as shown. Puss firmly into place. Now take the lower left and right forward panels and fit them into the console so they both fit flush. Take the top left and right forward panels and push them in place to the top of the console. Next, fit the longer left upper side panel into the matching recess, followed by the shorter panel which fits next to it, and finally, fit the triangular lower right-side panel into the recess on the opposite side as shown.

Fitting the Links
(The silver and black details supplied are fitted onto the surface to represent links between the panels. Although they are push fit, it is advised to use a little super glue to hold them in place.)
Identify the 4 silver and place on the panel as shown below. Take the small black detail, which has very long pins and place it into the console as shown. Now take the “L” shape black link and place as shown, fitting the end of the part into the link of the smaller black detail in the previous step.
The remaining link fits on the underside of the front console base which was supplied with issue 5.

Fit the two parts of the front console together as shown and join the parts with XW02 screws in all three holes.

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

Take the front console assembly from stage 63, plus all the details supplied with this issue. Fit the round pin “A” into the hole as shown, using a pair of tweezers to hold it and push firmly into place.
Now place all the other details in the same way, noting their placements in the picture below.

Adding the Lights
Take the completed front console, plus the instrument lighting LED’s and the LED mount provided this time, along with the cockpit shell assembly from stage 6.
Straighten the wires connecting the LED’s and take the middle one of the three. Fit the LED into the LED mount with the wider flange going on first. Feed the LED up through the rectangular hole in the cockpit shell and carefully pull it through on the other side. Plug the LED mount securely into the hole in the underside of the cockpit console as shown. Now fit the console into the cockpit shell, gently pulling the surplus wire back down through the rectangular hole and push the console into place.
Turn the assembly over and take the LED attached to the end of the wire and plug it into the starboard side underneath the right instrument panel. Take the remaining LED, which has the plug from it and place into the port side of the cockpit shell underneath the left instrument panel. Route the wiring neatly around the two edges of the cockpit shell as shown. Now test the lighting using the battery test box.

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