Week 78 This week air intakes and motors
The bits we received
And what we did with them
Firstly I filed off all the mould lines, then glued the small motors on with thick superglue. A fiddly job, but otherwise straight forward. Use a metal flat surface to help get the motors lined up with the bottom of the ventilator, being careful not to glue the part to the metal. The photo shows the parts (along with some from next week) on the masking tape ready for painting.
Here are the various parts painted and glued in place.
