Super Snake Pack 6 - Stage 39

Recommended Posts

Stage 39, floor mats and fire extinguisher:

First of all, I press the driver and front passenger floor mats into the floor, making sure the bar shape on the mat is away from the pedals. The I do the same thing for the rear passenger floor mats (both left and right mats are the same, so it doesn’t matter which side they go in):

Tip for if your mats are not going in easily: I use the Agora screwdriver and put it in the screw holes then rotate it around to slightly widen the hole:

Once I get the mats all the way, I put the passenger chair on. It does matter which of the two chairs you use. If you lay the chair flat and then bend the backrest forward, you will notice that it is at a slight angle. The chair needs to angle inwards as to give the rear passenger more room to get into the car:

Now I place the drivers chair on and screw it in with 2 more screws:

If you want, you can attach the seatbelts to the plug. I leave mine undone because there is no-one sitting in the chair. If you have a toy figure, go ahead and use that 🙂

The next part I do is optional. I add a small drop of glue to the underside of the car to hold the seat belts in place:

Onto the fire extinguisher. The two red sides have gaps at the top to allow the silver handle part to go in:

I squeeze the sides together, but some excess paint on the lug had stopped them from fitting flush. I use a scalpel to scratch it off:

So now that I have joined the sides together, I use a cleaning cloth to clean the face of the extinguisher in preparation for adding the sticker. I recommend you do the same as the sticker will peel off by itself if the surface isn’t clean:

Now I place the sticker onto the fire extinguisher. I tried to get the sticker as accurately placed as I could, so yours should look something like this:

I now push the fire extinguisher onto the car. It will hold itself there so no need for glue:

And the stage is now complete

I'm happy that you are going with stickers (rather than decals) for the printed detail on parts but have you considered including a spare duplicate sheet to assist those who may get their first attempt wrong? This is more difficult than what other modelmakers offer (stickers already applied) and yet would not be offering any better remedy than the 'spare screw'. I already have MANY spare screws after only 2 packs of the T-800 because I don't lose them, but sticker placement is trickier to make look right and, if stuffed up, could use a ready replacement.

Yes I agree that stickers can be tricky!

This is a good idea that we can use for the future. For now, if you ever need a replacement, please let us know.
