BigGrin Hi All

Thanks for looking in and your comments:-

Now for stage 21Drool Love Drool where parts start being connected upDrool .

First off we get the headlamp bar and we fix the headlight from the last stage to it and then add a bracket to the rear of the front boot assembly.

Next we get the right headlight assembly and test the lights work then add both of the lens to it. this assembly is then added to the headlight bar to make the pair.

The first front indicator lamp is next again its tested to see if the light works and then stored until needed.

Now its time to join the rear body panels to the roofDrool Drool Love Drool. I found that placing the parts on a towel to stop any damage was a help here. Its a simple enough job to join the parts and then add the engine cover to the assembly, just make sure the hinges are correctly located on there pins before tightening the screws. You can open the engine cover and use the prop bar to keep it open.

The last few pictures show the rear made up section placed onto the lower body to give an idea of what she looks like.

More soon

BigGrin Hi All

As a treat for xmass I decided to buy the last three packs in one go as there in stock so packs 22,23 and 24 to followDrool Drool BigGrin .

Pack 22

We start off with parts and the last front indicator lamp then we start adding the pedals and prepare the rear boot and rear window. More additions to the cockpit and chassis then the cockpit is screwed to the chassis. Next its adding the front console and steering wheel, make sure the flange on the steering column goes on the outside of the cockpit and not inside or it wont fit.

Next we add the rear view mirror to the windscreen and then join the cockpit assembly to the rear body assembly making a complete unit.

Lastly in this pack we prepare the 1st door card and side mirror assemblys.

BigGrin Hi All

Pack 24.First we assemble the right door just like the left door. Then we start to assemble the body assemblys firstly we add the bonnet bracket to the front boot area along with its bonnet stay. This unit is then screwed to the front fender assembly which traps the headlight actuation arm in position aswell. The doors are now added to the front fender assembly.

Next comes the tricky part where we join the front and rear assemblys together place the parts on a thick towel to prevent marks and take your time to get it all lined up properly. Once its all correctly lined up use 4 screws to join the whole lot up into one assembly. Dont forget to place the door struts into each door either. Lastly for this section we add the windscreen wiper and front bonnet.

Again lay out a thick towel then place the upper and lower assemblys next to each other. Following the instructions attach all the wires to the circuit board. Then we join the body assemblys together, again take your time and dont forget to place the steering peg into its slot. Once its all lined up screw it together.

Next add the rear undergrill and licence plate along with all the wheels. Place the two sills in position and then add the four wheel surrounds to the car. lastly screw the rear wing in place and add the screw to fix the rear boot stay.

It was now that I used some Tamiya car wax on the car and finally removed the films on the lights and windows.

This ends my Lambo build but I must say its a beast worth waiting for and looks the part, its a great build and I would recommend it to anyone.


Thanks for looking in.
