Neck (2)

Stage 1 – Assembly of the Neck Joint and Base
Step 1

Retrieve your Neck Base assembly from the previous issue. Start threading two (2) GP screws into these holes.

I recommend pre-threading the holes in the Front Neck Plate with the two GP screws first. Gently drive them into these posts and back them out:

Then, stage those screws in the Neck Base as per the instructions:

Fit the Neck Base assembly over the matching posts at this location inside the Front Neck Plate as shown, then secure it into place by fully tightening the two screws.

Make sure the ball socket of the Neck Base is facing down here:

Step 2

Retrieve your Neck Joint assembly from the previous issue. Slide the base of the Joint into this slot of the Front Neck Plate, orientating it as shown:

Stage 2 – Assembly of the Neck Plate
Step 1

Fit the Back Neck Plate onto the Front Neck Plate, aligning the four internal posts, and then secure these Plates with two (2) KP screws:

Stage 3 – Assembly into the Chest
Step 1

Retrieve your Chest assembly from Issue 86. Applying a little pressure, pop the Neck assembly down onto the exposed Neck Joint, as shown.

As I am adding my Central Lighting mod to this build, I had to attach the Neck/Helmet to the Chest back in Issue 86. I created this page for those builders who are following the stock build. This Neck assembly just pops down onto the Neck Joint from Issue 79:


With our Neck now installed, we will move on to the Abdomen (lower chest) section of the build in the next issues.
