Hi all. It's time to start a new box.🙂

Here's what I chose this time.

This is the first time I've come across such a short manual.

IMG_7693.JPG.2d0dbe2c16093f0943feecf020e5715b.JPG

A very, very small leaf and everything is explained very small and briefly.

As we can see from the instructions, this is a snap kit, but it is not at all suitable for beginners. Partly because of the poorly understood instructions, but more because of the fact that this is a very highly detailed snap kit. And this is very good for me.

Let's start looking at what's in the box.

Mirrors are given with a metal sticker, it's very, very cool. For the first time I see this in AMT kits.

The rubber is also of excellent quality.

First of all, I decided to correct the shape of the engine cover.

Before.

After.

Next, I made the missing parts where the high voltage wires will lead.

That's all for now, thanks for your attention.

Hello friends, let's move on. Exhaust pipes without holes, fix, pick up a drill and make beauty.

The radiator grill is completely different from the original.

IMG_7738.JPG.743cd1b68ab7da62c5cc91202eae2e9a.JPG

Headlights and back lights too.

Looks terrible.

I puttyed the holes and ground the pins off the headlights and back lights.

I cut out the kind of radiator grille that AMT offers us, made the shape of the pusher from a two-component putty and, using a grid, made grilles that look like an origal.

Next, I took drills with a diameter of 3, 4 and 5 millimeters and drilled holes in the headlights.

You are correct, for a snap kit it is very detailed and you've done a great job fixing the deficiencies, especially the head and tail lights! Your furry helper pic made me LOL. Great Job! 👍
