Fitting Parts to the Right Thigh

Steps 1-2

Retrieve your T-800 endoskeleton. Fit the Right Leg Plate into this same-shaped matching opening of the Right Thigh, as shown:

Steps 3-4

From the opposite side of the Right Thigh, secure the Right Leg Plate into place with three (3) PB 2×4 mm screws, as shown:

Steps 5-6

Retrieve the Right Leg Part assembly from the previous issue. Secure the ‘loop’ end to this location on the Right Thigh assembly with one (1) PM 3×16 mm screw.

Take care not to over-tighten this screw. It is not load-bearing, so it only needs to keep the Right Leg Part in place while being free to move around:

Thoughts


Two quick parts and we are finished. It will be another long two months before I receive more parts, but the right leg should really start to take shape soon. The single part included in this issue is plastic.

Running Total of screws used so far: 185
