Good news, everyone! The kit, minus the engine, arrived today without any issues. For the most part everything was already bagged by Casey into the sections of the build. I grabbed one of unbagged trees and started to work. The radiator and fan shroud are just about finished so there's pics of them and the tree they were removed from, and the model box. If you see room for improvement feel free to chime in at any time. It took me about 2 hours, seriously, to be happy with the results with those 2 pieces (and I see in my pictures now that the cap and shroud could use more work) which means I'll be putting most of my free time to get this thing ready to ship to Canada as soon as possible and keep this moving along.
So there it is folks. The build has begun.
