Building the Back to the Future Time Machine - Issues 156-158

This is it, that last issues...well, not really.  More on that later.

Issues 156-158

Issues 156-158 complete the train segments of the build. So hang in there one last time as we build these same parts for the last time.

Issue 156 - Railroad Ties

Not going to miss building these parts

Issue 157 - Rail

Contents of Issue 157

Huh, just realised that I am building a railroad.  History repeats itself

Issue 158- Train Wheel

Contents of Issue 158

Finally!  The fourth and final wheel.  We do have a new screw to help secure the wheels, the TM.  

I hope there is not a spare like there was for the stock wheels.  Refer to Issue 110.  I mean that is one way for Eaglemoss to milk this. 

Ah, but there is another way to milk this build.  Apparently, there is one more shipment to come.  Spoiler Alert.  The final (hopefully) shipment will be a car cover to protect the build from getting dust and dirt.  But, as you recall, this thing came with a display case.  No real need for a car cover under a plexi case.  Oh well, may as well complete it, would be a shame to cancel now.

Since the car cover should not have any screws, we present you with the final screw count after 158 issues:

114-AP, 25-BP, 3-CP, 26-AM, 13-BM, 4-EM, 4-CM, 38-DM, 3-DP, 1-FM, 3-GM, 3-HM, 2-IM, 36-EP, 22-FP, 2-JM, 5-HP, 4-GP, 16-NM, 3-MM, 9-KM, 2-LM, 23-IP, 1-OM, 1-PM, 4-JP, 2-KP, 3-QM, 2-LP, 6-MP 1-RM, 8-NP, 6-QP, 1-RP, 2-OP, 1-TM

Bonus content, here are all the extra screws, with the little dime bags and screw labels.  Yes, I kept all of it.


to be concluded...
