Brussels "Standard" 1000 series

Assembly instructions

1) Cut out the front and rear door panels, score and fold on the lines. Both door panels are identical, but the front one has the white text "Entrée interdite - Verboden ingang" marking on the doorstep.

2) Cut out the right body panel and score on the lines. Glue the rear door panel in place, make sure to line up perfectly with the body panel.

3) Glue the front door panel in place. You should have something like this:

4) Cut out the left body panel and score on the lines.

5) Cut out the front and rear panels and the front window.

6) Glue the window into the front panel, making sure to align it perfectly.

7) Glue the bottom body panel to card board, and cut out when dry

8) Now glue the right body panel in place, the bottom flap should align perfectly with the bottom panel. Glue the yellow surface below the door panels to the bottom panel.

9) Glue the left body panel to the bottom panel, to the chassis, the bottom flap should align perfectly with the bottom panel.

10) Glue the front and rear panels in place, make sure to align the blue lines on these panels with the left and right panels.

11) Cut out the roof panel, score on all edges of the dark grey surface, and fold the yellow sides to vertical. Glue the roof in place, applying glue sparingly to the white sides of the body panels and to their flaps. Make sure the fit is right and the body straight, because it won't be possible anymore to correct afterwards. The white "T" for the pantograph must be towards the front side of the body.

12) Bent and glue the doorsteps into their final shape.

13) The assembled body should look like this :

14) Glue the chassis panel and it's reinforcement panel to cardboard, and cut out when dry. Cut out both chassis' sides, and glue them together to fit the chassis panel. Fold and glue in place the chassis reinforcement.

15) Assemble both front and rear bumpers to match as closely as possible the drawing. When dry, glue the bumper assemblies to the front and rear of the chassis. The top of these should line up with the top of the chassis, otherwise the body won't fit straight to the chassis.

16) Glue the assembled chassis to the body assembly. The protection rails must be towards the front of the tram.

17) Fold the second protection rails on the dotted lines, glue together and let dry thoroughly. Cut out and glue the second protection rails in place, right behind the front doorstep. Glue the brake air cylinder together, and glue it in place inside the rear left side of the chassis.

18) The finished tram should look like this :

19) The pantograph assembly is very similar to the one on the 7000 series, only it will have to be assembled directly on the tram's roof, instead of on a separate panel. The pictures are quite self-explaining:

20) Glue the roof-top air box together and glue in place. Finally, glue the front and rear destination panels together and glue in place :

21) The assembled model should look like this : 1064 ready for service on your museum line!
