Hurley - Assembly

Here is the run-through for Hurley. This is a very straightforward one to put together, and it's pretty clear where the different parts go. The only tricky thing is the base - there is a re-enforced hole in the middle of the base for the post, and this need to be cut out.

The best thing to do here is to use a sharp craft-knife blade and twist if through from the back of the base. Once the point is through - flip the base over and cut from the top surface. Please take care when you are doing this - always cut away from your fingers and work on a cutting mat if possible.

Here are the components for the miniature. There are four pieces plus the base - main hull, turret, aerial and post.

Here are the stage by stage photos of the assembly -

There is a little give around the post which allows you to position the drone at a slight angle, if you choose. This allows you to convey a sense of motion.
