I like this kit very much. Very little to no flash. so parts are hard to get off the tree's , Some parts being very brittle Like part #129  Front suspension, I snapped the steering linking right off when I took it off the sprue.

The detail on some of the parts is top quality .

Very nice start ! You seem to be motoring right along on this build ;

Am I correct in assuming everything falls together on this kit ?
