I received notification that my first issue shippedBigGrin BigGrin
Really can't wait to start this one. I've been checking out the official build and other members build diarys, plus watching YouTube videos, so I'm highly anxious to see this kit and get started.
I'll be sure to post pictures when I can.
Best, Barry

Nice one, look forward to following your build

The time between notification of the pack being sent to actually receiving it has to be the worse time ever BigGrin

Thanks for the comments guys!
For me, it's been the time since this forum announced the release to being available in the US was the worst!

Well the first pack arrived todayBigGrin BigGrin
Here are the pics. Sorry if it's a bit picture heavy




The packaging is superb. Very well protected

Here's a couple pictures of the hood(Bonnet for the folks across thePond!)
Paint is pretty good. You'll notice their is some pitting in the paint around the logos. Not too bad though


The detaining on the wheel and tire is outstanding.


The bolts look really nice, although they were a bit of a pain to installCursing . The tweezers were too difficult for me. So I just took my time and did it with my fingers and the end of a chopstick.



Thanks for looking!
Barry

Great start Ponty, it's a great kit.

I also found those boots a right pain, you've got another set to look forward to when you get the other two rocker covers

They were a pain, but I found that when it was getting too frustrating, I'd walk away and attempt after a break.
