Still don't have much pictures.
The engine looks very nice

This has been the main business until now. With the package nr. 3, containig issues from 15 to 20, I will finish the engine and start assembling the interior.
The build is not so complex because the pieces go together very well and the materials are of excellent quality.
Cheers.

Hi Betto. Nice to see someone else building this model. Yours is looking pretty good so far although Iv'e found this kit goes together so well its pretty easy and you can't really go wrong! You'll like doing the inside, Its really wall thought out with good detailing including carpets and nice seats.

I had the first inconvenience with this kit: I broke the red battery connector trying to plug its cable.... :roll:
I will find a solution to fix it.

I have some trouble assembling the front part of the body, with the spare wheel bay, to the rest: it seems impossible to fit.....
Does someone have suggestions?

need to read some posts, I know a few friends had the same kind of trouble but in the end it all worked well - unfortunately I did not buy the model (yet) so I don't know from first hand...

Thanks Andrew.
It seems there is something wrong with the metal frame, that bears the interior, not allowing the front part to fit....
I think I will disassemble the front lights and the spare wheel bay and then I will try again. I think it will be possible to put these on after.... I hope.... :oops:

Oh well, I managed to assemble the body removing the spare wheel bay and the lights, but while I was trying to fasten the biody to the lower frame ....

Image

.... after that I could see that ...

Image

.... the left door is bent :( and does not fit very nicely.
And again, the steering wheel does not work. I think because while I was worrying about coupling the parts I forgot to check it.....
Now I don't want to disassemble it again because it is a too long job, I think I will never play with it. After all it is not a toy.
On the ather side the model is wonderful :D .
