Week 74 This week we get more engine parts
The bits we received
And what we did with them
I've glued the parts that are gunmetal to the engine block. Looking forward to the next few issues, there are some more parts that are gun metal, so I'll wait and fit all of these before painting the engine. Then the ancillaries will be added.
I wanted to make sure that the oil cooler pipes aligned properly. Therefore the inner half of the cooler body was placed (not glued) in position. Then the two pipes were placed in position and the then glued to the cooler body with some Tamiya Extra Thin.
Then the outer half of the body was glued in place. Now the cooler can be removed for painting.
The oil filter and generator were also glued together.
Now the parts need painting.
