Read all steps before beginning. Always dry fit the parts on every step that requires glue. And always add a reinforcing bead of glue to all joints the required glue and wipe off excess glue with your finger.

Always wear safety glasses and mask when cutting or sanding or using powder.

1: Start by sanding the disk, a wood burner can be used for highlights.

2: Glue the ring block flush with the end of the engine tube.

Using a straight edge draw a line along the tube. Glue the launch lug on the line so that it is flush with the end of the tube.

Once dry, glue the engine tube into the center of the shield. Lay it on a flat surface so it dries flush with the shield. Make sure the lug is placed over the launch rod hole in the shield.

NOTE: If you are building the Viking ll, skip this step.

3: Use CA to start gluing the styrene rod to the disk. Start at one end and work your way around gluing a little at a time.

when you reach the end cut off the extra.

4: Dry fit the notched disk and the plastic cap, center them over the engine hole. Make sure the launch rod will fit.

make 3 lite pencil marks around the ring. Glue on the ring at the marks using wood glue.

Use CA to attach the dome to the disk, keep it centered and clear of the launch rod hole.

NOTE: If you are building the Viking ll, skip this step.

5: Remove and sand the spikes. Using wood glue place them on the shield so that they are symmetrical. don't block the launch rod hole.

You can use any paint or wood stain. I used mirror marker for the chrome parts. But after clear coat the chrome turned a dull grey, I like it better.
