“In this stage, you will fit the cover and distributor to the front chassis frame, which is where the engine and gearbox will later sit.”




Materials: The Front Chassis Frame is metal, but the other two parts are plastic.


Front Chassis Frame & Distributor

This Front Chassis Frame is a big chunk of metal and has some good weight to it! And, this is only like the first third of the chassis! To get a sense of the scale, each grid line on my cutting mat is 1″:

Step 01

Place the Front Chassis Frame Cover into the Front Chassis Frame as shown:

Secure the cover to the chassis with two (2) EM screws.

This is your friendly reminder to try using 3-in-One Oil on all screws going into metal:

Step 02

I believe that this is actually the brake line ‘distributor’. I heard that it was originally made of brass on the real car, so I went over it with my handy Metallic Gold Sharpie just for a little contrasting color:

Fit the Distributor to this location on the Front Chassis Frame as shown, and secure with one (1) EM screw.

Just for kicks, I temporarily set the engine assembly into the chassis to see what it is going to look like soon. I love it:


After the previous stage, this one was super short. Maybe they wanted to give us a little break!
