Looks great, awesome progress. My Pack 06 will be arriving soon, can't wait to start working on the interior. Parts quality looks amazing. I am actually thinking about drilling out all the holes in the speaker grills... I know it's a lot of holes but I think the end result will look even better than markers.

Hi All, well have completed Pack 14 now. Starting with the battery box and leads, I used masking tape to secure the red and black lead round the chassis, as they would not stay in secure with the small locating pins. The front suspension went together ok, a little fiddly at first but all ok in the end. All taking shape now.

Regards
Jon

Ahh Pack 15 now completed and by far the hardest part of the build for me this far.
The engine was a tad difficult to line up, but went in ok in the end.
I managed to knock off the AC compressor part at the rear of the engine and had to use superglue to re attach it.
The exhaust needed a bit of persuasion to fit and align properly, plus a little superglue to secure it in place.

Regards
Jon
