“Assemble the left-hand side of the Upper Midsection, then join it to the right-hand side, finishing this stage by linking the Midsections together.”

Materials: All of these parts are plastic.
Aerial Upper Midsection Left
As in the previous stage, I used my Black Artistro Paint Pen to give the bumper on this Stop Plate a quick coat of paint:
Push the D-shaped pin of the Stop Plate into the matching hole at this location on the Upper Midsection, as shown.

Retrieve your Upper Midsection from the previous stage. Fit these two assemblies together, as shown:
Secure these Upper Midsections together with two (2) Type I screws.

Retrieve your Ladder Guide from Stage 64. Fit this Ladder Guide to this location on the end of the Upper Midsection, aligning the pins and screws hole as shown:
Secure the Ladder Guide into place with two (2) Type C screws:
