Central Leg Support (2)

Stage 1 – Assembly of the Spring
Step 1

Fit the Spring over this pin on the inside of the Shell:

Step 2

Fit the Support for the Spring over the Spring, capturing it in place, and secure the Support to the Shell with two (2) BP screws.

The Support also has angled sides (indicated below) to match the inner shape of the Shell – make sure it is orientated correctly when you install it:

The Support for the Spring also has a central ring that should face down onto the Spring to hold it in place:

This can be a bit tricky to hold in place and then insert the screws, just take your time:


I feel like this is the ‘codpiece’ of our Iron Man armor! Keep the two Rotational Base parts stored as they will be needed in the next issue.
