Parts

Materials: The Outer Door Panel and Window Winder are metal, the Crew Seat is hard rubber, and everything else is plastic.

NOTE: Save any spare screws left over at the end of each stage of this build. They may be needed in later stages!

Build


Front Left Cab Door & Crew Seat

Assembling the Seat

Super glue the flat side of the Seat Support to the bottom of the Crew Seat, making sure the post of the Seat Support is nearest to the back of the seat as shown:

Retrieve your Cab Floor Section assembly from the previous stage. Fit the post on the bottom of the Seat Support down into the matching hole at this right rear location of the Cab Floor Section:

Secure the Seat Support to the Cab Floor Section from below with one (1) Type H screw:

Assembling the Front Left Cab Door

Fit the post of the Window Winder into this hole of the Inner Door Panel and press it into place until it clicks.

Take care to only press on the Window Winder post and not the handle so we don’t bend it:

Inside the Inner Door Panel, fit the Gear onto the exposed square end of the Window Winder, as shown.

One side of the Gear has a raised circular center section – this side needs to face towards the Inner Door Panel:

Apply a little super glue to the insides of these four holes of the Inner Door Panel:

Align those four holes of the Inner Door Panel to the matching pins on the back of the Outer Door Panel as shown, and firmly press them together allowing the glue to set:

Apply super glue around these four pins of the Inner Cab Panel:

Fit the metal panel of the Outer Door Panel over those same pins of the Inner Cab Panel aligning it as shown, then press it firmly into place allowing the glue to set.

You may need to push the metal panel down onto the pins so it is flush with the plastic:

Apply a small drop of super glue to this D-shaped hole on the outside of the Outer Door Panel:

Firmly press the D-shaped post of the Outer Door Handle into the same hole and allow the glue to set:

Thoughts


Nothing new to add here. We have built seats and doors before, so this was more of the same.
