Working on the Left Pelvis
The first steps of this issue will be identical to the assembly of the Right Pelvic Girdle in Issue 44.
Take note of these two posts on the Pelvic Girdle (Left):
Retrieve the Pelvic Frame assembly from the previous issue. Fit the top two screw holes of the Pelvic Frame over these posts.
When this is fitted correctly, the outer edge of the Pelvic Frame should sit nicely inside the Pelvic Girdle:
Begin to secure these together using two (2) PB 2×6 mm screws in the top two holes:
Secure the other fixing points with four (4) PB 2×4 mm screws:
Fit the Pelvic Girdle Detail (Left) to this location, aligning the screw holes.
The recess in the round tab fits over this post:
Secure the end of the Pelvic Girdle Detail (Left) in place with one (1) black PM 2×4 mm screw, as shown:
Secure the top of the Pelvic Girdle Detail (Left) in place with one (1) PB 2×4 mm screw, as shown:
Cut the Pelvic Girdle Detail (Left) (marked ‘L’) from the sprue, taking care not to remove the ‘foot’:
As we did in Issue 44, check the fit of the Pelvic Girdle Detail (Left) against the pelvis assembly. Then, apply a thin line of super glue along the edges of the Pelvic Girdle Detail (Left) and secure the Pelvic Girdle Detail (Left) into place, ensuring all of the glued edges are touching:
This was basically a repeat of Issue 44, so this one went by quick.
