Just for you Cato, had everything packed military fashion back into the ctn, but I did un-pack to take this photo.
This kit is tha bomb dude, the plastic parts are crisp and have great detail, other than the raditor being abit outta shape and 2 lamps missing, this kit looks like it was mfg'd yesterday. And by the way, those who build w/balsa knows that the stuff you get today is no where as good as the balsa you would get back when........like 1952, the balsa is alot more dense, tighter fibers......reason for the wood parts still being warp free. I will post some photos of the wood, did I mention the frame is made of mahogany......I will admitt, some of the parts will be replaced w/pear and apple just for the fact can be finished to a glass smooth w/no wood frizz. The coach will be built from the wood as comes in kit, and again, the couch on the real car was made of wood, and finished in natural wood. One of the interesting bits of info, leaf springs are mounted on top of frame to lower the CG, otherwise, the coach of the car would make it top heavy and prone to flipping onto it's side! No shocks per say, could be added if one desired.
PS: Looks like one of the wheel caps was replaced w/a brown one.
