Yes, I like Revell's later kits too...worked in page 11 today -
Image
Then mounted the wheels - then noted a very bad mistake on my part earlier in the construction on the front axle....
Image
The spindles are upside down making the front wheel too high and rubbing the wheel wells :angry-banghead: :!:
Image
So drilled out the glued pins/connectors on the front axle assembly. Split the frames and turned over the spindles correctly - made new pins and glued all together again..
