Build


Storage Box Cover and Raised Walkway

Step 1

Step 2

Retrieve your Body assembly from Stage 51. Push the pins of the Storage Compartment Cover into the matching top holes at this location on the left side of the truck, as shown.

The large tab at the rear of the Storage Compartment Cover should slide in front of the Stabilizer Jack. You may notice that I do not have my Box Frame Rood Section screwed down in these pictures. That is because I was still working on my Custom Lighting mod at this point in the build:

That step completes this stage, but there is an unused Ladder included here. This is the first of many ladders that we will receive and they should be safely stored until we need them again later:

Thoughts


This was a quick stage, but this is only the first of many Walkways we will install on our fire truck model.
