Group Model Order Instructions and Procedures
MODEL ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS
Please take care in unpacking your model. Pay close attention to the notes
written on the cardboard locking panels. Cut the tape carefully and slowly lift each locking panel to remove.
Once the model is removed from the box, verify the correct inventory with the included packing list.
The smaller antennas are often enclosed in an envelope taped to the packing paper.
Take special care when using scissors or a knife to remove the packing materials. It is very easy to
accidentally cut the HF antennas, fending lines, and guide wires. Be sure to carefully inspect all packing
materials and save them to repackage your model in the future. We recommend that you save the shipping
containers and packing materials. These containers are designed to be reused for storing, moving, or
shipping your models during PCS/TAD moves.
Assemble the base of your model first. The base and neck are attached using the 2 screws included with
the base. To attach the base, slowly rock the model back and forth to slide the base pins into the grommets.
Once the model is on the base, you can assemble the weapons, propellers, and antennas.
When installing propellers, rotor blades, or antennas. It is best to wet them with water.
When inserting the tip into the hole, twist and rotate the metal tip, until the part is seated all the way.
NOTE: DO NOT PUSH IT WITHOUT TWISTING. Often rotor heads are made of resin, and this could cause them to crack.
When installing the bombs, missiles, and pods; it is highly recommended to lightly dip the tip of the pins
into a very small drop of super glue before inserting into the hole. Although the pins are tight in the
holes when leaving the factory, as the wood hardens the holes may loosen. Lightly dipping the pin into a
very small drop of super glue will allow you to remove the part to disassemble the model. DO NOT glue the
parts directly to the model as removing them could detach part of the paint or wood.
MODEL CARE INSTRUCTIONS
Gloss Finish - Models and stands can be cleaned using a light amount of furniture polish on a soft cloth.
Do not spray the furniture polish directly onto the wood product.
Flat Finish - Combat aircraft models, munitions and flat finish propellers can be cleaned by using a can of
compressed air, feather duster, or a soft bristled paint brush. You can also use a damp cloth. Please do not
use a furniture polish to clean your flat finish products to avoid discoloration on your model, munitions and
flat finish propellers.
