ISSUE 33

In this issue you will be getting the Laser generator LED, Laser cannon housing (inner half), Forward laser generator end cap, Forward laser generator outer half an inner half, Rear laser generator, Laser generator union, Rear laser generator outer half and inner half, Middle lower fuselage cross member, and the Forward lower fuselage cross member.

In steps 1 – 3 you will need the Laser generator LED and the Forward laser generator end cap. Ok so when you put these together you are gonna need to make sure that you don’t break the LED’s wire. If you do then it won’t work. If you have any struggles putting the LED in place that is when you can use a screw driver that was provided or one that is pretty small.

In steps 5 – 6 you will need the piece just made and the Forward laser generator inner and outer halves. When these are being put together make sure that the pieces don’t smoosh the wire because then it will for sure not work. Also make sure that you don’t try to pull the wire to tight while putting it together because you should have a little slack.

In steps 7 and 8 you will need the piece just made and the Laser generator union.  So when you put the Laser generator union together there is a little slit  and notch on the other piece that goes into it so make sure that they line up.

In steps 9 and 10 you will need the piece just made and the Rear laser generator. So when putting these together you need to make sure the wire goes into the slit on the Laser generator union. Once again make sure you don’t smoosh it.

In steps 11 and 12 you need the Rear laser generator outer and inner halves. So this step is very easy you are just gonna need to have the pegs and the holes lined up and then push them together till they are flush.

In steps 13 and 14 you will need the last 2 pieces made. So this step is easy because it has a slot and a nub so that it can fit and have the pegs on the bottom line up.

In steps 15 – 17 you will need the piece just made and both halves of the Laser Housing from Issue 32. When doing this it is quite simple and all you need to do is line up the pins on one half, but the second half lies on top of the other and make sure that the wire doesn’t get cut in half.

In step 18 – 20 you are gonna need the piece just made and the rear end cap. When putting them together make sure that you hold the case together but it has to line up almost perfectly so that the cap can hold it together.

That is all for this stage but there is another part.

EXTENDING THE FRAME

You are gonna need XW01 screws and the metal pieces provided in this issue with the metal frame you built awhile ago.

In steps 1 – 6 you are gonna need all the pieces listed above.  You are gonna be screwing the pieces into the other and make sure that you are lining up the holes with the other holes.

After all of that this is what you built.
