Commencing final assembly… It is tight, but the body does fit over the chassis.

You must have have extraordinary vision Mark. I am amazed at how your progress on these difficult builds marches forward.

Since the decision was made to display it all open and to not install the wheels, I made some jacks to pose it on. Made mostly from piano wire, with a couple bits of styrene, vinyl tubing, coffee stirrer wood (thanks Mr. Taylor), and turned aluminum main wheels. They are copies of typical of the jacks of the day that were used, but simplified a little.
I also made a base from aluminum, scribed some tile detail into it and did some gray & black shading to it.

The jacks and base are really cool. Good job. I guess leaving the wheels off were for the better.
