The packs in this stage are for 51 - 55 of the build.

PARTS 51 & 52:

These parts will enable you to complete the left front wheel and upright.
Assembly of these parts is very straightforward.

PARTS 53, 54 & 55:

These are components for the air ducts and radiator.

At this stage, many new parts were scratch-made as the real car being modelled is quite different from the kit.

Also, the kit has the steering rack in completely the wrong place.
It would be almost impossible to mount this part correctly so a 'dummy' rack was made from plastic tube with solder wire wrapped at the ends to replicate the rubber gaiters.
The dummy rack was fitted in the correct place.

The real car does not have a spare wheel mounted at the front.
There is a 'Firesence' extinguisher system here which was also scratch made using plastic tube, sheet plastic and various wires and tubes.
The decals were created, printed and fitted.

Brake and clutch pipes were made using solder wire, and then fitted in place.

The radiator parts were enhanced using fine wire mesh, detail painting and aluminium tape befor being fitted.

The air duct pipes were painted orange and the metal banding was added using a chrome marker pen.

The front suspension parts and wheels were fitted at this point.
