The chassis comes with 2 brass tubes and metal cross pieces that have to be glued together. It is a real PITA.

Agree on what Len said. Here the picture of the instructions.

 

This the white metal parts, and parts list.

Chassis and front suspension.

Here show how to bend the metal bars (also provided on the kit) for build the front part of the chassis. The draw is in 1/1 scale with the part. Same also for the rear of the chassis.

That's a great kit Fabrizio, sadly does not have a full engine detailed, so no opening front hood as a result, but otherwise very nice to build

Some small progress...

 

Start to bend some bars for the front and rear part of the chassis.

This goes to the front.

This also to the front, side.

This one on is for the rear.

Yes, building this kit is unlike anything else!

 

One thing I did when I built mine was to carefully separate the hood from the body. Even though it doesn't have an engine, it made it a lot easier to get the finished chassis up into the body.

Thank you all guys!!! :)

 

 

Wow nice job.. looks like its not just a walk in the park.

 

The white metal parts need some works because are not straight, I had to put all the chassis on a flat glass, to check if everything is straight and equal in all the three chassis.

Good idea on cut the hood, I might copy it. I try the chassis with the body and it is little bit tricky.

 

I start to work on the wheels, oh man... A lot of work for clean them... Later I will post pics.

Opening the slots on the wheel. 14 more to go...

The 1964 Daytona had the wheels in silver color right?

It might be worth your time to buy the nice wheel/tire set from HRM (part# HRM-408).  Picture of them on Strada Sports website here

 

 

Not sure which specific car(s) you are building but some of the Daytonas ran with white wheels.

Thank you JC for the tip on the wheels, I might have to buy the HRM one, they looks way better! I would like to build the Daytonas that ran the Tour The France.

I'm on a break with this build. I'm little torn about the wheels/tires, use the one that came with the kit, or order the HRM one. If I order the HRM I need to wait up to 90 days... That a lot, I was hoping to have those cars done this or next month.
