Before assembly, thoroughly clean all parts in warm water with a mildly abrasive cleaner like Ajax, Softscrub or Comet. This will cleanse any additional mold release and allow paints to adhere to the surface. Remove flash or over pour with a razor knife or saw. Additionally, it is strongly recommended that you test fit all pieces before final assembly.
NOTE: The hip is a ball-and-socket design. This is only to give the builder more posing options when building. It IS NOT designed to remain unsecured. Once the builder decides on a pose, it is strongly recommended that the joint be secured with CA or some other type of super-glue. Similarly, the knee joint is a pin design but not meant to be left unsecured by some type of glue.
|Glue sides to main body. These areas should line up as seen.|
|Main Body Assembled.|
|Arm Assembly. 3 Pieces.|
|Parts for legs.|
|Toes attached. I would use a thick epoxy for the front to rather than CA.|
|Note the telescoping pin. The one with the line goes to the outside.|
|Pin from the inside of the leg. This smaller pin will need to be sanded down about 1/8".|
|Assembled leg. Note pins sit flush against leg. I would use an thick epoxy to attache the foot to the lower leg.|
|Legs plug into the hip. Once you have your pose, glue.|
|Torso added. Again, once you have your pose, glue or replace tab with magnets.|
|My only complaint is the pour stub under the cockpit detail but easily dealt with using a file.|
