I am a month behind most people as I ordered later but that gives me the benefit of learning from others as they go.

Stage 1 is complete. I am leaving stage 2 until i get pack 2 as I will assemble the front wing after I have glued on the end plate skids. Stage 3 which is mainly the disc and caliper I have done but will post a pic after I have done the wing.

It doesn't look too bad. Not to sure about the rear wing, looks a bit tricky

It's a lot less complicated than the MP4/23 rear wing and as long as you take your time and allow the adhesive to cure before trying to finish it in one go then you will have no problems BigGrin

What would you recommend for the wing assembly. Abs plastic weld or poly cement?

Me personally, I would use and am using ABS plastic weld (MEK) but this question has been asked of me more than once and I'll keep giving the same answer Flapper

Thanks Spencer. For anyone following some advise would be to glue the main wing to the end plate on its own and when that's dry glue on the lower flap after and then glue the little silver joint on afterwards. This way you can make sure the ends where they glue to the end plate will be level if that makes sense.

Stage 5 is now complete. Rear wing not as difficult as I thought.
