Week 88 This week we get more parts for the gear box.
The bits we received
And what we did with them
The cover is attached to the gearbox top.
The back of the instrument panel is attached.
The two halves of the radio console are glued together. I won't do anything more to this until I get the details in a later issue.
The radio console and gearbox cover are now ready for painting, but there are some more details to go on the instrument panel before that is painted.
The gearbox top has now been painted and glued in place. This fitted well.
The join line was filled with epoxy putty, and then the console was painted. In additions tot he base colour, I added some details in black, white, red and green. These are purely from my imagination as I couldn't find any references. I think it looks quite good though.
