Well thats it for now! The next pack is the last which I recon is the right hand door and any other bits required to finish this great model! I should think it will include the final assembly of the complete car and how to wire up all the connections! Can't wait!

Fitted hinges to front bonnet! This was where I came across the first mistake with this kit! They had sent me two right hand hinges!!! They are plate steel and bent to the left or right so I took the chance and re bent one right hand hinge to be left! Luckily it worked although I had to paint it black where it was bent or damaged by the pliers! Saved waiting for a replacement!

Close up of re bent hinge! You can hardly see the marks although most of it will be hidden at the bottom of the inner front section.

I'm going to do this delivery over the next few days.

I was looking through the parts and I am thinking that there will be quite a few parts next time and lots to do with sills, putting the front bay in, connecting everything up etc. I also think that the front body section will be connected to the rest before putting it onto the lower part as I have found that is the easiest way to put them together. if you do it while the rear is on the chassis then it is much harder to get into place.

I still have not found anywhere in the instructions etc that deals with radiator hose A unless that is one of the very last pieces!

I too am waiting for the postman to bring me a nice big box next month!

Hi there snapdragon. I can't wait for the last pack either. I think the main building of main body and front will be in this issue! Iv'e tried dry fitting the front and its really tight! There might be a suggestion in the instructions. There's also loads loads of wires to connect and I haven't got a clue how they connect up!

Doors fitted to front wings! These seem quite loose but will tighten up when fitted to main body! The masking tape is just to hold the lights down during construction.

Fitting of front wings to main body. This was very fiddly and I could have done with another pair of hands! You have to keep the doors up and open while trying to line up the pins on the front of the window frame then at the same time trying to line up the stays into the holes in the doors to both sides! Eventually did it but boy what a job!
