Return to the BUILD
“In the next two stages, you’ll start to assemble the first boom section, known as the Bed Section. Stage 60 adds components to the left-hand side, stage 61 mirrors these steps for adding components to the righthand side.”
Materials: While most of these parts are plastic, the Name Plate is metal.
NOTE: Save any spare screws left over at the end of each stage of this build. They may be needed in later stages!
Components for the Left-hand Bed Section
Retrieve your two Ladder Name Plates from Stage 01 and Stage 09. To tell which is which, the left-hand Plate has shorter white brackets than the right-hand Plate, as shown:

Secure the Plate to the Bed Section with four (4) Type C screws:
Apply a bit of super glue to the back of the Aerialscope 75 Name Plate and fit it into this matching recess of the Left-hand Bed Section:
Glue the Spotlight Lens into the Spotlight, as shown.
You may want to use a PVA-based (white) glue here. Super glue (CA glue) has a tendency to fog up clear plastic:
Fit the D-shaped pin of the Spotlight into the matching hole at this location on the Left-hand Bed Section:
After the lengthy previous stage, this one flew by! We will repeat these steps in the next stage for the right side of the Bed Section.
