Hi

Excellent work Omar, you’re correct that there are some too-delicate parts especially when most will never be visible. Please forgive posting these images but I’m trying to help - it looks like you’re at this stage…

…so the next stage should be the cab body…

This part was a b**ch because the instructions were not clear (to me), so hopefully this photo might help…

But the worst thing was the fit between the hood top, the side panels AND how they all connect to the cab front…

I don’t remember ever resolving whether I made a mistake (probably) or whether the kit parts were bad. All I can say is take extra care to avoid this, it’s the same problem on both sides. When I said before it was a great kit, I’d forgotten these issues :tumbler_glass:

Hi
Some steps more, the problems with the instructions is a reality. You must change the order of the steps If you look for to have a good model. Some pieces of the PE are horrible. The support of the rear light is fine extrem, a piece that I had have to change.

I don’t think you were wrong. Inside the engine compartment, the clutch pedal, brake, as well as the steering column did not mesh well. If I had followed the instructions, I would surely have had the same problem.
Your notice helped me.
Thanks, :+1: :beers:

Ready the assembly or almost, they remain to place the hooks in the box. The great challenge is to paint it, since everything is already glued. With the idea of ​​placing a canvas … we’ll see what I decide.
