Step 3: Assembly - Doors

Setting aside the body for now, we'll start on the turret's doors. The eight (8) pieces highlighted in red and blue (photo #1) will form two separate components. Pieces "E", "F", "G", & "H" (in red) will form the left door, and pieces "I", "J", "K", & "L" (in blue) will form the right door.

Starting with the left door, attach the skinny half of piece "H" to the wider half (photo #2). From here, pieces "G", "F", & "E" will attach to "H" just as they are laid out (photo #3). Finishing the door can be tricky in the same way closing the body was in the previous step.

If you have trouble at the end, you can poke a hole in the center of piece "H" to manipulate the tabs using a paperclip. I used the same space to label the door "LEFT" (photo #4) so I wouldn't get them mixed up (though honestly they're basically identical, so you probably wouldn't even notice it if they were backwards). This spot will be covered by the door's arms later, so the hole and/or labeling will be concealed.

Wash, rinse, and repeat for the second door using pieces "I" thru "L" (photo #5).
<p>cool!</p>
My lil' bro gonna make this!
HMMMMMM could have been better to add in INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO PUT THEM TOGETHER
did you, you know, actually read the instructions...? i couldn't have possibly gone into more detail...
Is there any way to make the final product more glossy, like in the game?
you could try using photo paper, let me know how it turns out!
Thanks for posting this! I made this for my brother-in-law's birthday. The result was impressive, and he loved it. It took a LONG time to make, and at the last moment I had to run out and get another copy of the PDF because I messed up one of the doors. But in the end it was pretty awesome. I'm in awe of the talent it took to design it! The only complaint I have is that the gun turrets have little attachment points on both ends in your photo, but not on the printed PDF. <br> <br>I also printed this as a birthday card for him: https://twitter.com/i/#!/Shereebedee/media/slideshow?url=pic.twitter.com%2FvB7PhgI <br> <br>Thanks again!
