Week 31 This week we get the jack
The bits we received
And what we did with them
The jack is simply assembled according to the instructions.
The track tensioner covers are glued on to the rear of the hull. Luckily I hadn't painted it yet.
The jack and starting shaft have been painted with Mr Metal Color Dark Iron. This paint can be brushed or sprayed. It looks matt black when it's dry, but a quick buff with a cotton bud brings up a metallic shine. You naturally get a weathered finish as the cotton bud doesn't get into the corners and these areas stay dark.
The jack and shaft will be fitted after the exterior painting has been completed, but I'll call this issue complete.
