I cast a copy of the steering hub axle part. Not entirely perfect, but with some work it became usable.
The instrument panel got some decals.
The steering system was assembled.
I accidently fastened the steering in a fixed position, and to reflect that I glued the steering wheel in a turned position.
The tires was assembled.
The instructions says the brake plates should be glued to the rims, but that would prevent the wheels from rotating. So I glued the plates to the axles instead.
Then the wheels was glued in place.
And then the instrument panel, completing the interior.
The hood and body got a clear cote.
My intention was to do one more clear cote, but my curiosity had me trying the body on the chassie. As it turned out, it wasn’t all that easy to just slip it on. So to avoid breaking anything, I decided to let it sit where it was.
I then started adding parts for the final assembly.
A few more parts to sort and add. Then there’s some decals and glass parts that needs to get on, as well as license plates. Then it will be finished.
According to the instructions, some parts are supposed to be painted silver, but after looking at some pics it seems like most of them have a polished steel or chrome look. So I decided to try my chrome colour in the airbrush for the first time.
It turned out looking a lot better than I had expected. I need to paint some of them on the other side as well, and I might give the tank a few more layers. Actually not very much colour used to achieve this look.
More painting! This time aluminum.
Engine and transmission sits together in one pice, and I just have to work with that.
I started assemble the engine parts just to notice that I hadn’t got paint everywhere it was needed, so I had to sort that before I could continue.
The oil filter needs a decal that I’ll put the when the gloss blue have cured.
Speaking of decals, the interior have quite a few.
Getting the decal on the stick was quite fiddly!
The body frame needed some more paint and I also masked and painted parts of the exhaust system with chrome.
The exhaust system was touched up some and the tape removed.
I decided to add ignition cables so I’ve drilled holes for them, but I need to figure where the other end should go. According to the pics I’ve seen it seems like they go somewhere under the black boxes on the valve covers.
I’ll also continue assembling the chassie once everything else is in place.
