“In this next stage, you’ll assemble and attach the right outrigger.“
Materials: The Right Outrigger is a mix of metal and plastic, but the remaining parts are all plastic.
NOTE: Save any spare screws left over at the end of each stage of this build. They may be needed in later stages!
Assemble and Attach the Right Outrigger
Press the pin of the Ground Light Lens into the matching hole inside the Ground Light, as shown.
I used a small drop of super glue to keep these lens secured. Be aware that super glue (cyanoacrylate) can fog or ‘craze’ clear plastic. However, I think this effect makes my lens look more authentic. If you want to make sure your lens stays clear, try a PVA glue such as Elmer’s Clear School Glue:
Press the D-shaped post of the Ground Light into the matching hole at this location on the Right Outrigger. Use glue if needed:
Retrieve your Body Midsection assembly from the previous stage. Fit this Right Outrigger assembly to the right side of the Body Midsection, aligning the two screw holes (at the top and lower edges) as shown:
Secure the top of the Right Outrigger to the Body Midsection with one (1) Type B screw:
Secure the bottom of the Right Outrigger to the Body Midsection with one (1) more Type B screw:
This Outrigger can be raised and lowered by hand. It is made out of a combination of metal and plastic:
How cool is this outrigger? Again, the details are astonishing, from the warning decals to the red/white reflective tape. Keep the unused Pike Pole nearby as it will be installed soon,
