Build the Back to the Future Time Machine - Issues 121-124

Issue 121-124

Go back in time for this one.  Last we left off we were in between issues of sorts.  Here are the parts 'missing' from previous post...that were already shipped to us a while back.

Issue 121- Left Reactor Vent

Contents of Issue 121

The vents is one the first things you will notice on the Time Machine.  It changes the silhouette of the stock DeLorean and immediately makes it a Time Machine.  Glad we did not have to 'assemble' separate panels to get the vents.

Issue 122 - Left Vent Vanes

Contents of Issue 122

The horizontal vanes help cool the vents.  Wait, looks like we have a new screw, the NP!

Issue 123 - Right Reactor Vent

Contents of Issue 123

Same as the left side, we do with the right.

Issue 124 - Right Vent Vanes

Contents of Issue 124


Now, we go back to previous shipment to work on 125 and 126.  You know what, it looks like we have completed the basic Time Machine.  Looking around, I do not notice any areas that are missing details.  So, I am curious as to what the other issues have in store.  I believe there should be four more issues (130), and an additional 25-30 issues for parts of the Part III hood box and train tracks.

This is where we are at now.  Snapped these photos just at sunset, so we have a little golden hour lighting. 

Build up to 126

Yes, that is a floor mat.

Still need to put the mirrors and center caps back on.  But will wait until the build is complete and in a case before we finalize everything.

Here is your screw count up to Issue 126:

Screw count:  108-AP, 25-BP, 2-CP, 22-AM, 13-BM, 4-EM, 4-CM, 38-DM, 3-DP, 1-FM, 3-GM, 3-HM, 2-IM, 4-EP, 22-FP, 2-JM, 5-HP, 4-GP, 16-NM, 3-MM, 9-KM, 2-LM, 22-IP, 1-OM, 1-PM, 4-JP, 2-KP, 3-QM, 2-LP, 6-MP 1-RM, 5-NP

to be continued...
