Estes R2D2 #2142 Build, Part 2 Engine Mount
The padded four-sided fingernail files are great for removing the mold tabs and flash on the plastic parts.
This is one half of the centering rings.
The green centering rings are glued to the long engine mount tubes.
The plastic pieces are glued over those.
ALL of the plastic piece fit better than any plastic model I've ever built! Whoever made the molds for these knows what he was doing.
There are small ridged and interlocking tabs on the parts halves that fit without any trouble.
The top of the mount gets the washer weight and a plastic "cap" over that.
Rubber bands are wrapped around the plastic centering ring overlay halves while the plastic glue dried.
