Styrene coin slots

This evening I spent an hour working on the styrene pieces

Piecing together the parts that make up the coin returns is pretty easy.

After referencing Alex Kung's website for instructions, I got the pieces laid out and ready to go...

One very, very important tool I use are popsickle sticks. They are about the same thickness as the styrene. I use them as guides, I apply pressure onto the side of the stick, this way the parts bond correctly.

And here is about 10 minutes of work, getting all three coin slot pieces glued up. I'll let these dry for 24 hours before moving on to the next step.

More tomorrow...then once they are together, some gentle pre-primer clean up.
