Postby R2D2 » Sun Nov 30, 2014 9:39 am

Finaly have had my Lamborghini bits delivered. I must say the parts are very well made and top quality. Mine have no marks or blotches and are perfect. I think Im going to enjoy building this car!

Main parts taken out of packaging! Quality is very good and they are really weighty!

Paint work is very good! White marks are light reflections and not marks in the paint! The paint work so far on my parts is excelent!

Great to see you got started on this, I'm really glad your paintwork is good, I must have been unlucky with mine, so much so that my replacements are a bit dodgy whereby the edges has black primer or overspray

Sorry to hear that Dave! I rechecked my parts and no problems! As you said could have been a bad batch! We will have to see what the rest of the model is like!

Hi Dave! I have actually been able to down load all issues up to 57 from the Japanese site! I will down load to the forum when each set of four issues is due! Here are some more pics of the parts and build!

These are all the bits taken out of part one! The rear wing is really heavy as Dave pointed out and yet the wing struts are plastic! I hope they will hold the weight!

These are the only fitting points for the wing and uprights! The are quite a tight fit and you have to be carefull not to snap the pins!

Wing standing up with uprights fitted! Although I thought the plastic uprights would be flimsy the seem quite ridged!
