“The Mark III armor has four interchangeable abdominal sections to put the figure in different positions. In this issue, we begin assembling the piece for position B, the posture in which the torso is twisted.”
The steps in this issue will be very similar to the process we followed in Issue 92.
Materials: The Internal Abdominal Structure B, Torsion Spring, and Pin Shaft are metal – the other parts are plastic.

Abdomen – Position B (1)
Stage 1 – Assembly of the Abdominal Connector for Position B
Start passing the Pin Shaft through the hole in this tab of the Waist B Connector Base, stopping with the end in the gap as shown:
Slide the Torsion Spring over the end of the Pin Shaft as shown and fit the end of Spring into this hole of the Waist B Connector Base:
Fit the Connector Lever in between the tabs of the Waist B Connector Base and slide the free end of the Spring into this hole, as shown:
Align the large hole of the Connector Lever to the Pin Shaft and press the Pin Shaft all the way through the Lever and into the opposite tab of the Waist B Connector Base, as shown.
Once fitted, this Pin Shaft should be flush on both sides of the Connector Base:
Fit this Connector Base assembly to the Internal Abdominal Structure B, aligning the screw holes as shown:
Secure the Connector Base to the Abdominal Structure with three (3) AM screws.
This is your friendly reminder to try using 3-in-One Oil on all screws going into metal:
We will end up building two more of these Abdomen sections to allow us to pose our Iron Man in many different ways. We will add more to this assembly in the next issues, so keep it stored somewhere safe for now.
