The air filter assembly is a bit rough.There are sprue attachment points on the lid of the filter and the filter itself looks out of scale and the wrong color.
I stripped the paint off the air filter lid( Not sure what paint it was but it was a devil to remove) and sanded off the attachment point and painted it silver.

The fins on the air filter seemed out of scale to me so I 3d designed and printed a new filter and painted it.I think it look better than the original.

I also attached the front grille and fog lamps and Cobra logo.

More work on the mustang.Did the doors and got the tires on the rims.The tires were really hard and I had to use boiling water to soften them up enough to fit over the rims.I also started on the rear chassis ans suspension

really nice kit so far.Everything fits well.

More work on the chassis.This thing is pretty big and heavy.I did make some resin wheels to replace the stock ones but there is no way they will take the weight of this model.
