Started this part work with parts 1 and 2 - left part in its sleeve as nothing was needed from it. Assembled part 2 the carburettors and intakes. Painted the 4 nuts on the intake plate with chrome paint...

Received pack 3 - it consists of using parts from pack 1, assembling the head lamps complete with FOD covers in the bonnet. Then the drivers seat and part of the co-drivers seat.

Next I assembled fog(?) lights and stored them for later.

Then I mounted the FOD covers and head lamp assemblies in the bonnet.
Image
The one thing I don't like so far is the little twist latches on the bonnets are too loose fitting and I've broken one (repaired) so far. Recommend leaving them off until closer to the end of the build - I also scratched part of the black edging stripe on the bonnet. Sorted the same also. :angry-banghead: :?

Pack 5 arrived - two 'future' parts from the lower frame and parts to finish the other door - took time to pick out the pins/bolts in the doors to detail a bit - assembling 'blind' now as there are no posted instructions :? -

Pack 19 is left and right fuel lines and a fire extinguisher - it looked a bit plain so I filled the seams a bit, added a retaining strap and a gauge - drilled out the nozzle...
