Pack 9 - Stage 68. Cockpit housing.

Recommended Posts

Stage 68 gives us the cockpit housing and handbrake.


Put the right hand panel in place and fix it with 3 screws.  2 in the top and one at by the cockpit floor which is a little fiddly, but a magnetised screwdriver will help.


Looking at the bottom of the model, the bottom of the panel should fit like this.  It was a little tricky trying to get the panel to locate fully until I realised it was the lugs on the chassis not going in the holes in the chassis panel.  Once I turned the model over, it was easy to get them to click into place.


Handbrake next.  Push the handbrake cable onto the handbrake.


Push the handbrake into the hole in the cockpit panel.


Trim the handbrake cable to length and push it over the pin on the fire wall.


Push the cooling water pipes out of the way and fit the left cockpit panel.  This is fitted with 4 screws.


From the underside you can see how the panel fits to the chassis, and you can also see the cooling water pipes running between the panel and the passenger seat.


This completes the stage.
