“In the first stage for this Pack you’ll begin work on the left-hand side door by installing the door handle and lock. The steering wheel parts and logo transfer sheet will be used in a later stage, store these away safely for the moment.

Parts

Materials: Here I will describe the materials the supplied parts in each stage are made out of. All of the screws are metal, so I will not mention them. For instance, in this stage the Left Door is metal, the Logo Transfer Sheet has vinyl decals on it, and the rest of the parts are plastic.

Build


Left Door Lock and Handle

Step 1

Gently press the two pins of the Door Lock into the matching holes at this location on the Left Door, as shown.

It is helpful to use tweezers to install this part as it is so small. If you don’t have any tweezers, a pair will be supplied with Stage 07:

Slide the Door Handle into these slots at the rear edge of the Left Door, as shown.

Note the position of the small tab on the lower surface of the Door Handle – this should be pointing towards the bottom of the door:

Finally, gently press the forward pin of the Door Handle into the remaining hole in front of the Door Lock, as shown:

Thoughts


I wasn’t sure I would like the yellow color of this model, but it looks amazing in person! I am very impressed with the amount of detail so for. Keep the unused Steering Wheel, Emblem, and Logo Transfer Sheet stored safely until we need them in a later stage.
