Greetings!

With 3 subscriptions coming to an end I decided to dive in to this one. I like the option of having 12 or 24 month subscriptions and I have opted for the former.

I have 3 packs so far but have just completed pack 1 which comprises of the first 5 stages.



That's all I have to show at the moment. No issues experienced so far. I hope to have a go at pack 2 today.

Your off to a good start. BigGrin

Don`t forget that you can if you wish paint the VW Logo black on the wheel hubs and when you get to work with the gloss painted parts, that you may wish to protect the paint surface by assembling them on a soft cloth like a towel.

Keep up the good work and enjoy.

Cool Cool Cool

Thanks for the tip. I hadn't actually thought about that.

So on to pack 2 which starts with stage 6, the front left door interior.





Stage 7: Front right wheel.





Compared to the Ford Mustang these tyres go in very nicely. Probably due to the fact they are a lot thinner.

Stage 8: Right front seat back.



This stage isn't required just yet.

Stage 9: Front right wheel.





That's where I am at right now.

Stages 10 - Right front door, 11 - Right front door window and 12 - Right front door interior.











No issues here but the door opening mechanism doesn't pull back to much when I pull the door handle. I'm guessing it's not supposed to as everything is in properly.

Part 13 - Right front seat.

In conjunction with pack 8.





Part 14 - Left front door trim





That completes pack 2.

It's early days but I'm impressed by the quality of this so far. The seat is very soft, the door trim really looks the part.

Greetings!

On to pack 4 then.

Stages 26 and 27 Middle Seats Base and Supports





Stage 28 - Middle Seats









Stages 29 - Rear Bulkhead





Stages 30 and 31 - Rear Seat back and panel





Stage 32 - Heat Exchanger



Stage 33 - Rear Seats Base





Stage 34 - Rear Seats







This is where I leave it. Stage 35 the spare wheel housing is included but the instructions say to hang on to this. Looking at the next instructions though stage 36 is to assemble stage 35 so I could do that now but decided to take a break. I'll include this with pack 5.

Looking really good.
A friend of mine is building this and he asked me to make a nice looking period 6v battery for it.

Turned out not too bad...

Roy.

Greetings!

I completed pack 6 in one enjoyable sitting this evening.

Starting at Stage 50. Suspension and Rear Axle





Stage 51. Rear Bumper





Stage 52. Rear Chassis Frame





Stages 53 & 54 Rear Suspension









Stages 55 & 56 Rear Wheel Arches







Stage 57. The exhaust

Also a couple of cables from the battery.





That's me up-to-date with this build. I'll have to impatiently wait a month now until pack 7 arrives.
