 PAK building instructions, part I

General instructions / Pivot Assembly

 

 

First an overview of the parts.

First impression :


a GREAT model. Parts are very detailed, not a lot of flash, no bend parts....

 

Let's get to work ! (some general instructions)

First of all, remove the flash. Be carefull not to break it away, because you have
a chance of destroying the part.

Here parts with the mold release left over. Remove it with sand-paper,
hobby knife or file.

In the end, this is what is left over :-)

Well, I guess this is pretty obvious, but nonetheless very importent to do this
acurately.


OK, let's really go to work :

Here you see the partly assembled pivot assembly.

Note the circle where I drilled holes to hold the scope mount. Initially they were not there.

Here some modifications I made on the "adjustment wheel" bar.
A tube will come out of the screw later.

Here the "adjustment" wheels and bars attached.

The handles on the wheels are scratch build.
