1

Download the .pdf file and print it

2

Cut the parts apart

3

Saw the required pieces of wood (12mm) to size

4

Lay the wood with masking tape

5

Spray the back of the paper with glue and stick it on the masking tape

6

Use a drill with a thickness of 7mm for the axle holes at the front of the car

7

The axle hole at the front may be fully drilled through. For models with 4 wheels you can drill the axle hole at the rear of the car the same way and skip the next two steps!

8

Use a 6mm drill bit for the axle holes at the rear of the car. These may not be drilled deeper than 5mm!

9

A piece of masking tape at 5 mm from the drill clearly shows how deep the drill goes

10

Also drill a hole on the spot of the window. Make sure it is big enough so that your saw fits through

11

When sawing, ensure good eye protection. Use the screen on the scroll saw or a pair of goggles. I also use hearing protection and a mouth cover

14

15

Pull the paper and tape away from the wood

16

Make two axles (6mm thick) of 20mm and 60mm long

17

Sand the parts smoothly. I use 150 grit sandpaper. The wheels are purchased and are 33mm and 10mm thick

18

19

A small amount of glue is enough for the small rear axle

20

Tap the axle into the hole with a small hammer

21

Mark the spot with a pen or pencil where you do not want to have glue

22

Let the glue dry briefly and clamp the parts together well

23

Always check that the parts do not slide through the glue

24

Remove the excess glue

25

Put the wheel on the axle and see if it has enough space before you glue the other part

26

27

Done!
