Hawk Pt 3
The kit comes with a small Mashima motor and a Branchlines SL mount. However the big bearings are again present, and I can't stress enough how little room there is to play with between the frames, so once again they had to be reduced. This time though I soldered them in first and saved my fingertips by having the mount to hang onto. The mount was drilled to take the motor screws, then folded and the LRM axle used to square up. It looks narrow here, but it's a smidge over 6mm wide and the back to back for 009/09 is about 7.5mm so when those figures are put together you soon see how tight it all is. Finally solder was run down the folds to firm-up.
