  1. Stage 106, enhancing the cyborgs brain. Adding the circuits makes you feel like it is going to actually come to life! (scary!): Quick stage, I screw the circuit board on to the back of the head with two screws. Stage complete.
  2. Stage 105, torso details: Let's begin by pressing the back plate on. No screws or glue here. Now I can start making the piston or hydraulic detail things on the shoulders. Just like the instructions say, I make sure not to over tighten, because of the angle they need to be at. I now flip the T-800 over and basically just repeat what I did on the back, but now on the front. I have decided to put the coils (that go from shoulder to chest) under the shoulder muscle on both sides, before I secure the screws. Stage complete.
  3. Stage 104, bulking the back: I begin by screwing each of the 2 panels on to the back. Nice fit, with one screw each. Next, I glue in the two shafts. The shafts held in quite strong without any glue, but i had some glue so why not? This is a neck muscle. I simply push the parts together. Now with some glue and screws, these bigger panels can now all connect to the main body. Sometimes big parts are fiddly to attach and line up all the screws, however i can happily say that this was a very easy fit! Stage
  4. Moving on to stage 103, where I attach the chest plate from 102: Before the chest plate can be fitted, we need to screw this detail part on, like this: The chest plate is now ready, but I need to do one more thing before it can be connected. That would be pushing in these rubber parts. They seem difficult, but I just wiggle them around whilst applying pressure for a good few seconds and they eventually pop through. Only after this, can i put the chest on: Now to screw in, I need to flip the fella over and screw in the four screws.
  5. Stage 102, making the chest armour: Straight away we get to use the parts from the previous stage. They get glued on to the chest plate with a very nice fit. Moving on to the two coils. I stick them both through the centre section of the chest plate and hold them down with a screw in the middle. And with the last two peices, I glue them into the head of my T-800. Stage 102 complete.
  6. Let's get started with pack 11. Parts included: Starting off nicely with the attachment of the left foot. The three tubes take in the three poles sticking up from the foot, then I screw on the ankle. However the holes on the ankle did not align, so i used pliers to twist it around so they are aligned (right image). Then I thread the screw through. Ball joints are next. They require a hard push, but fortunately, they are not too fiddly. With the four joints complete, I glue each one on to the big plates provided with this stage.
  7. The last four stages are all about connected parts to the firewall. Technically most of the parts seems to be "Electrical Device" !!! Firstly the speaker, which will be used for the engine sounds, is attached to the back of the firewall. The cable harness is fed across the top of the firewall and inserted into a section of holes. I did find that two of the holes were not wide enough to be able to pass the rubber through, this seemed to be due to excess paint from the spray painting being left inside the hole. It came off pretty easily when I twisted a screwdriver
  8. Rear Fender It was at this stage I discovered that the group of wires coming through the front of the fuel tank assembly were incorrectly positioned, so had to do a bit of disassembly and correct.. In stage 60, step 1 you have to put the numbered wires through specific holes and so you need to ensure that everything is lined up OK ...but when its done it tidies up nicely!
  9. Putting in the fuel pump The space involved is quite tight so I used tweezers to press in the various pipes Looks great when done!
  10. Rear trunk assembly begins... Straight forward screwing together the trunk: Then attaching the full tank with the wires fed through the holes completed!
  11. Pack 8 is mostly the rear trunk section of the Cobra and starts with fuel tank The main point of this stage is to make sure that the wiring is fed through the correct directions otherwise the wires will be in the wrong place when connected later. The first time I attached the fuel tank, one of the black wires got trapped in the screw hole so be careful of that one - I didn't notice until I went to screw in the final screw and by then it was wearing the insulation a bit - so check before you screw! All put together and wires in the correct
  12. Time for some wiring!!!! Essentially for this, you just gotta follow the wiring diagram in the instructions to get them in the correct place! Match up the numbers! Then it is screwed into the plate... And the stage is now complete:
  13. Quite straightforward this stage, attaching the fuel filler pipe to the trunk board Put in place and screw from the back!
  14. Time for the other seat (Drivers) Similarly to stage 50, this is done by measuring to the tape length by holding it against the seat This time, I realised that for the second bit of tape I could just measure the cut piece again: Over the bseat goes the cover, and then its stuck into place, I removed the sticky cover at this point using a blade And here is what the cockpit is looking like once the seats are in and the battery packs are behind them:
  15. Now to do some work on the batteries and the battery cables. First I have attached the battery to the bracket and screws it into place The batteries and the bracket are installed right behind the passenger seat, which is something you don't see in modern vehicles! For the cable on the shut-off switch I first tried it without glue, but found it is best to use a dab of glue to hold it in place. Once the two cables are attached with glue it is then easier to screw it into the body. Each of the cables was then inserted into the bat
