Parts arrived a few days ago so thought I would kick off this build.The parts are the usual good quality and paintwork is well done. Nothing to do in stage 1 but stage 2 requires the carburettor assembly to be built.It took a couple of goes to fit the carburettor cover but other than that went together well.Looking forward to next months packBigGrin

Pack 2

Three stages in this pack, starting with a front wheel.All very straight forward but as can be seen from my pic my wheel wasn't the best quality.Fortunately once all three pieces are joined its not seen.Then I moved onto the door which went together well but the inner door panel didn't clamp the window as tight as it perhaps should at top right.This was cured with a bit of superglue.Finally the bonnet was added to the front panel and the paintwork as per the door was spot on.Looking forward to pack 3.

Pack 3

This pack contains the front light covers and seat parts.The light lenses clip in to the respective housings and once the light covers are placed in position they are held in place by the headlamp housings which are screwed in place.Next we move onto the drivers seat and seat back which are screwed together and then fitted into the seat trim. Finally the co-drivers seat and back are joined which completes this packBigGrin

Thanks for looking.
