Hope Y'all can shed some light on this.

 

The kit is the Revell 1956 Nomad Wagon 2'n1' ... number 4947.

 

Page 4..build step 4.. section 'A" has a build note that says to connect driveshaft

through the "X" brace and onto the transmission.

 

Page 4..build step section "B" ..build step "B" shows a photo with "X" brace.

 

Now the question is ...Where is the "X" brace? ..I know what the part is and what

it does..but the piece is not numbered or in the box !

 

I'm building this kit for a contest and any help will be appreciated.

Thanks

 

p.s. I've dumped all the contents out of the box several times already.

 

It's making me mumble mumble grumble grumble...LOL

The X-brace parts are not included with the non-convertible versions of the 1/25 Revell Tri-Five Chevy kits, so ignore the part where it says to pass the driveshaft through the X-brace.

 

This series of Tri-Five Chevy kits started out with the '55 Bel Air convertible, which DID have the X-brace (which added stiffness, due to the lack of a fixed top on the body), so when the instructions were modified and used on the second version (the '56 Nomad IIRC), they were not accurately updated.

 

You can see the X-brace parts by viewing the '55 'vert's instruction sheet plans on Revell's website. http://manuals.hobbi...rmx/85-4269.pdf
