I fell in love with this, when I first saw someone else's build on the forum.
Really enjoyed building it.

Nice Car! How did putting the body over the firewall/chassis/interior go?
Any advice on that you would like to share? I can't wait to put this kit together
but that part seems difficult to me!!

Good Job!

Stevefrom memory that bit was straight forward. The front bumper was a bit tricky. Overall it was a easy build. I can't compare too much as it is my 4th completed model, so not a lot of experience, with other kits.

This kit isn't too bad. It's a little tight, but take your time and don't force things and you should be fine. Also, wait until the body is on to put on exterior parts.
