Locate the bracket, part 14C and the pack of CP screws.
Fix the bracket in place in the two small holes on the lower side of the body. Make sure the angled end is at the top.

NOTE: You may find it easier to prop the model on its side using empty boxes or similar.

Fix the bracket in place using 2 x CP screws.

Locate the top bracket, part 14B and fix in place at the top of the body using 2 x CP screws.

Locate the jacking point, part 14D and fix in place at the bottom of the body just behind the suspension arm using 1 x CP screw.

Locate the two suspension upright parts, 14E and 14F.
Fit the two parts together. They will only fit one way.
Fix them from behind using 2 x HM screws.

Locate the brake duct, part 14G and press it into place on the upright.
It will only fit one way.

Fit the two pins on the upright into the holes at the end of the upper suspension arm and the end of the steering rod. Make sure the axle stub is facing outwards.
Fix in place using 2 x KM screws.

Turn the model up the other way and using the small cable tie, part 14H, secure the brake line to the end of the suspension arm.
Cut off the excess cable tie.

Fix the lower pin of the upright into the hole in the end of the suspension arm and fix using 1 x KM screw.

STAGE 15:

Retrieve the main body assembly and the inner bargeboard part 15B. Also, the pack of CM screws.

For this stage, you may find it easier to carefully prop the model on one side. This is only a SUGGESTION. You may do this if you wish.

Fit the bargeboard in place on the ends of the support rods and fix using 2 x CM screws.

Locate the outer barge board parts 15A and 15C.
Fit these together and fix using 2 x MP screws.
Fit the outer barge board in place over the inner barge board part with the leading end behind the outer front wing plane.
Fix in place using 2 x MP screws in the main barge board and 2 x AP screws through the front wing plane.

Locate the brake disc parts 15D, 15E and 15F.
Assemble the parts and fix together using 3 x SP screws.
The parts will only fit together one way.
An OPTIONAL suggestion for some added extra detail is to colour all the vents around the edge of the brake disc using a fine black marker pen.
Position the disc over the end of the stub axle.

Locate the brake caliper and retaining rods, parts 15G and 15H.
Assemble the parts by pushing the rods through the holes in the sides of the caliper.
Fit the caliper to the front upright and secure using 2 x CM screws.
Turn the model over and trim the brake line tube to fit neatly on the silver pin on the edge of the brake caliper.

With the model still upside down, remove the screw nearer the front of the upper suspension arm mount.
Locate the angled barge board mounting arm part 15J and one SM screw.
Fit the support arm between the outer end of the lower barge board mount rods and the screw hole just uncovered on the upper suspension arm.

Fix the rod in place using 1 x SM screw with the outer end of the rod hooked in place on the barge board mount rods.

It is suggested in the printed instructions that the front wheel can now be attached but it might be advisable to store the wheel and the washer part 15I and the fixing screw 3H safely until later as the wheel is heavy and may be an obstruction for building later stages.
