For a look at our build-up of Pack 03, look here.
Four months ago, we embarked upon the build of this beautiful Shelby GT500 Super Snake kit, and by now we should be working on Pack 05. Unfortunately, the Wuhan pandemic basically shut the globe down and things are still far from being 'normal' again. Nonetheless, Agora Models was finally able to ship the backlogged packs so we can catch up with the build. Here is Pack 02:
Here's a closer look at Pack Two. This pack contains:
- Right Door Assembly
- Right Window Assembly
- Right Door Trim
- Passenger's Seat Backrest
- Passenger's Seat Seat
- Rear Chasis
- Fuel Tank Bottom
- Fuel Tank Top
Step Seven: Right door - this step puts the exterior door handle on the door. Once again I used the small screwdriver with magnets to place the screw and get the first bit of threading started, then switched to a larger screwdriver to finish the job.
Steps Eight and Nine: Right door interior - the door glass is mounted to the inside of the door, followed by the door hinge, and finally the door panel that includes the interior door handle and window crank. Having one the left door in the previous pack, this time the step was easy. The process wraps up with the installation of the door trim.
Steps Ten and Eleven: These steps build up the rear and base of the passenger's seat. No mysteries here.
Step Twelve through Fourteen: These steps are the first time we have part of the chassis and we simply add the two halves of the fuel tank and fuel filler next using the included screws. Be careful as that fuel filler neck is plastic and could break of you flip this assembly over without support.
So here are the three subassemblies completed and next time we'll be adding more parts to that nice heavy casting of the rear chassis. For now, these three subassemblies are put away with the Pack 01 subassemblies for safe keeping. Total time with this pack was less than an hour.
My sincere thanks to Agora Models for this review sample!
