Expanding the Upper Skeleton

Step B

Retrieve your Skeleton assembly from the previous stage and fit the Upper Skeleton 1 to this location on the right rear side of it:

Secure this Upper Skeleton 1 to the two Skeletal Supports below with four (4) BM screws.

When working with the skeleton frames, be gentle. They are metal, but can bend easily and cause warping of your saucer section. This is also your friendly reminder to try using 3-in-One Oil on all screws going into metal:

Thoughts
