Issue 12,

Components in first picture are not used on this part of the build.

I found that the gaskets on the outer exhaust pipe flanges were very tight but a little lubricant helped.

Hi Everybody,

I'm sorry that I haven't posted recently, some other things get in the way occasionally.

This is how it looks now after completing issue sixteen, no insurmountable problems occurred.

Thanks for looking Gray. I started a bit before you and didn't suffer the amount of delays that you had.

It's getting to be a bit of a lump now but I love the amount of detail there is.

Some issues don't appear to be very much but it all adds up, lets all hope that Covid 19 doesn't delay things too much out of China but will have to live with it if it does.

This is issue 17.

I wish that the Lambda control unit had be issued a lot earlier in the build, I found that it was unnecessarily awkward to fit and connect the hoses. Amount of detail is impressive as always.

I have found that some previously fitted hoses have come off their pins so a tiny touch of adhesive could be a good idea but does need care.

Hi Everyone,

This is issue 18. No insurmountable problems and the detail is superb, very impressed. The clutch and brake levers operate and the throttle rotates and springs back to rest position.

Thanks for the comments Alan and Gray.

The detail is built into the kit not down to my skill but is fun to put together anyway.
