This has to be one of my favourite Partworks in the last couple of years, design and quality is excellent. What does the timetable say :think:

Hinges put together. These were really fiddly and I found I had to drill out some of the holes a bit larger because the screws were very tight.

Inside of bonnet catch. Its actually supposed to latch onto the wing but as the body isn't yet fitted to the chassis it does not yet line up. I hope it does when its fitted.

Bonnet open. It doesn't stay up you have to hold it but I presume its because its not yet fitted to the chassis.

Close up of hinges. These were as said very fiddly to fit and I had to drill out a few of the holes for it to work.
