As I have done before, I painted the heads of the final two FP screws in this issue with Tamiya XF-56 Metallic Grey in advance.
Assembling the Radiator
Place the Radiator Grille into the Radiator Grille Back.
The lower edge of the Radiator Grille has curved corners, so this will only fit in one way:
Fit this assembly into the Radiator Mount while aligning the holes:
Secure these parts together with (2) FP screws:
Attach the radiator fan assembly we built in the previous issue to the back of the Radiator Mount with six (6) AP screws.

Mounting the Radiator
Place this assembly onto the two Radiator Mounting Brackets at the front of the chassis:
From the underside, secure the radiator assembly to the brackets with two (2) FP screws:
Another short and simple issue, but it does set up the next issue which is more complex with all the engine cooling piping. Everything in this issue is plastic.
Running Total of screws used so far: 262
