It world it’s a miserable saturday morning. Åh, i slept like crap last night. I figured this you out with the camera. I turned my law light off and uh. There was some brightness down, because the last thing i was filming with it was some obviously really bright. So my bad for that last video if it was a little dark. Men, you didn’t miss much as far as this truck went if it didn’t come out in the video. So again, apologies for that, but um here with the uh, the curt volvo yesterday. Som du kan se, there is just these couple of arches here which just took behind the front wheels under the back of the cab and those are what i am going to be leaving black and the rest is going to be needing pain. So so yesterday, i’ve got all bits and backs out for next stages. So i’ve got a brewery here now so i’m, just gon na go through this manual and have my coffee and uh find other little bits and bats. And then i can just mark that out the manual with a pencil and then yeah that way i can move on with stuff that doesn’t require paint and bits and bobs like that or it ain’t going to be trapped behind something else that needs to go there Beforehand or whatever so i’m just going to wake up with this coffee have a little read through this manual and then i’ll see what else we can get done with this because, like i say yesterday, a lot of it’s down to like paint stages now um.
This is my difficult choice because i always want like a nice, blue or metallic and blue pen, and i want to try and steer away from um the blues, which i’m doing with the scx103 as well it’s a nightmare trying to think of colors. So i might do some much fun with that. I’Ve got plans for that one and no it’s, not blue, but it is fun uh, but this really haven’t got a clue. The original intention was blue, but yeah and think about that when we get to it let’s see what half it says: i’ll go and have a look at some of their colors later, maybe and see what they’re saying so i’ll check back with you guys, um very Shortly yesterday, that’s the little stage i did just gluing those two arch bits which i just showed you um like. I said these bits is completing the rest of the rear, arch um, installing, like the light bits and stuff and some light lenses to then put that here um do i paint the arches or do i leave them black? Sometimes they look better black now. For me this this truck ain’t going to get run um. It is only going to be a display model, because the last thing i want is to be running it around the club and somewhere with their truck and annihilate it to a million pieces, because it’ll be just ruined forever. Så, Musik, it is only going to be a display truck for me this one um.
It might maybe get a little run every now and again, once every blue, moon or i don’t know, maybe not maybe we’ll we’ll see so yeah next bits after that is then the skirts which also i need to paint okay. So if we move our way down a little bit more, we can stick these uh rubber buns here on the cab clip. We can do that and looking like this point, we can move up to 40 air, which is gluing like the exhaust air tank finger or whatever it’s a part of um. The cab, locker and i’m presuming that’s going to be in there black or silver, or something probably would look nice painted silver if it’s, not silver already but we’ll, see. I have to study a few volvo trucks as well. I guess look how they laid out how they set up um interior plate that ain’t gon na make no difference so looking at it. We could probably drop that in there as well um and get some clips for the motor wires just so there’s wires on there should i ever want to run it but um. I can’t see there being anything stopping me getting underneath there to put wires in, because i also i’ve left the servo apart out as well. I say it’s, just gon na be a static model, it’s a plastic truck. Hopefully i got here coming up to the bumper sorting the lenses out for the bumper, but i tell you what we’ll do for this video then chaps and ladies um get this tank constructed up.
We’Ll get these little rubber bungie things done and we’ll probably get this floor plan put in and then i best get my ass to alfred’s or something and start thinking of some paint right. So i’m, moving on jumping to ‘b it’s, quite a skip through manual but doesn’t matter, because bits can go on later um. I say they need painting. So what we need now are these two little uh rubbery airbag thingies and on your cab locker, just gon na put one over there like saw, and the second one onto there all right. So so now your cab or something fitted within the cab have some a bit cushy to um fall onto there. Oh well that’s handy because they’re all of 48 is all on one tree, so i’ll snip them off get them all smoothed out and uh roughed up on the edges, ready for a bit of glue and we’ll glue. Those there i’ve just started gluing all these little bits and bobs um that one’s drying and then we’ve got this one to put together and then it’ll all fit into this. So while i’m doing this, i’ve just had a brain wave on um a color. So i am going to flatter halfords now and get that paint so i’ll be back shortly, so that was a quick alfred’s room done. So i got one large gray primer, one large, clear lacquer, and for this bit i got two cans of not telling you, but i have decided that i won’t be painting the arches, so they can stay black and we can proceed with that bit on there and The other little bits everything’s all out here, ready to go so yeah it’s, just the arches at the moment, then to leave and i’m going to have a sift through my paint box later on and i’m going to paper, the little great calipers silver and the disc.
Like silver, the great calipers, red and stuff just detail up little bits wherever i can um well yeah apart from that it’s looking like the build, is more of a ball ball. Happy days, oh and before i proceed dave, i know you’re watching and i know you know what color i’ve gone with so shh gracias. So scoot him back a smidge through the manual i think it’s, only a page uh it’s literally we’re, just back to um the rear arches which, because of the color that i all of a sudden, decided up on um i’m happy to leave them black because it Breaks it up, so i don’t think there is anything that requires painting on there nope, so i’ll just show you building up one of them and then the others exactly the same so it’s just slightly back to front in it left and right and then we’ll get That fitted around here somewhere and obviously on the other side, wow really is coming together. Just man, you had little bits of crap around it, but all right, let’s crack on so first thing. Første, with these arches is these tiny little like brackets on a bolt into here now, there’s like a hole cut out of the side and the goal with actually that flat lip with the hauling down and they’re, then gon na just slide into there, like so like? I said with that flat lip down, and then there is a part marked out there, where we’re gon na put a nut and bolt and actually nut and bolt that to there so i’m gon na go on now and do both of them with the little nuts And bolts yep, these tiny microscopic honey are shrunk.
The kids look some bolts and then, efter at, it’s put in the light lenses to the other part of the arches. Så, just to bear in mind there is a rear and a front part to the rear arch, and there are also two of these to the arches one for each um that’s, the one i just showed you up against the front part of the arch, but the One with the flat lip there, as you can see the little groove on the end that one’s going to slide into the rear part of the arch. Now it is slightly different in length. Sorry let’s get that there to the bottom one slightly longer um and for the front part of the arch. You will be using that one, which kind of adds like a block to it there rather than a flat. But if you look they are slightly different. Lengths. Også, only just so just bear in mind when that come into that sorry, if you do have, one of these builds to do or you are on with one of these builds just make sure to check and double check and then maybe even triple check because it’s, Like designed to catch you out and also if you look like the tiny little puzzles where you have to chase a little ball around the maze and drop it into a little hole and things like that, then you will love this build so there’s the front quiet, Get that and there’s the rear, so repeat the same for the other side.
Now all right. So the easiest way to do these fiddly little nuts and bolts, rather than like, put the rod in and then try and not unbolt. It is put the nut and bolt in first and then thread that through the hole that it comes through one moment, so it goes through there like so and then we want to just pop that onto there and then tighten that up voila. So now all them are in, we can uh start fitting the lenses, the rear, arches and the light lenses there’s one now there’s no mention of glue or out it says it all clicks together. The little white lens clicked into there, but i don’t really want to use glue on there. Yet um i’ll probably use a pva glue because it doesn’t fog, so first off you’re just going to want to not unbolt that to there and that drops inside there followed by that right on top. And then it looks like that. But with glue these look like they hold on these, like rubber grommetry type things, those are definitely going to need a little bit of glue so for now i’m, going to pop them in a little bag and i’ll do that light towards the end of the build. So on the inner part of the rear arch you are gon na have to just maybe trim that end off a bit. Ellers, the holes, unlike the mud, guard, don’t line up accordingly to those it sticks out so there’s, obviously somewhere in there ie that cross member and it’s, just preventing it from going in the hallway.
So you are gon na have to trim a few mil off that to get that to fit flush so now that’s, sitting flush. We want to take these like little rubber grommet clip type things and just pop them in the top of the arches different sizes, one for one side and another style for the other. Now it doesn’t say these should be glued in so i’ve just left them loose at the moment and then i’m guessing those will like look into there. Somehow yeah, i see that’s that one and then yeah. So i like the idea of the rubber clips, but at the moment they don’t seem very efficient, but for a static model i’m not going to be running it so they’re not going to fall off um. I presume i am going to need just a dollop of glue here and here just to like hold that bit in which then they might sit a lot more stronger. So i’ll get the other side of that done now and then that is um more of it. Complete so there it is now with the rear, arches now i’m unsure whether they do need gluing in uh. They ain’t gon na sit on while running around and all that but uh, som jeg siger, luckily, it’s a display model. So there was this tank bit here that i just need to finish. Gluing so i’ll finish that bit off now and then we’ll call that a day for that video, because my next stages are paint and the susie mountain that goes here.
I think i want that silver, så det er, the next point – and i don’t really want to do that yet until it’s painted so there’s a static model, what a beautiful kit, but for practicality for driving it around. No thank you that’s the arches done and managed to get all this bit glued up. Now i am going to look at some volvo picks because i don’t know whether this may want painting up, but for now that’s uh, even more progression done on the volume. Even more progression done on the volvo, så ja, thanks for watching, if you’re not already subscribed, do subscribe hit.
