Assemble the Shoulder, Affix the Left Arm to the Body, and Collect a Hip Joint

Step 1

Retrieve the Left Leg Joint Section from the previous issue and place it next to the Left Leg Joint Section from this issue:

Step 2

Slide these parts together as shown. No glue is needed here:

Step 3

As we have done many times before, apply glue to the posts of a Left Shoulder Joint Washer and secure it flush into the Left Shoulder Joint Connector, as shown:

Step 4

Turn the Left Shoulder Joint Connector upright and drop the Left Shoulder Joint Cap into the opening, aligning the flat sides until flush:

Step 5

Retrieve your T-800 Endoskeleton from Issue 71 and slide your Left Arm assembly into the Left Shoulder, as shown.

You may have to pry the shoulder apart a tiny bit to get the arm pivot in there:

Steps 6-7

Fit the Left Shoulder Pin down through the shoulder assembly from the front:

Step 8

While holding the Left Shoulder Pin in place, turn the model over and secure the pin in place from behind with one (1) 3×10 mm Allen screw.

The Allen Key tool for this screw was supplied back in Issue 26:


Our T-800 has both of his arms attached, nice! Keep the hip joint assembly and remaining Left Shoulder Joint Washer safe as will need them later. The washers and the Left Left Joint Section are plastic, but the rest of these parts are all metal.
