Hi all just back from America having been working and flying some interesting aircraft over there. Back to some modelling soon. I am well behind on all my builds but the Lambo is my favorite. I see there is a delay on packs 18 0n. I have not received and letter from Modelspace, but can see there have been some issues. If anyone can update me here I would appreciate it as I am catching up on a lot of things.

Regards
Jon

Hi All,
Back in the fold or, well back to the Lambo. been away for some time with work and have lots of catch up to do. I have all the packs now to complete the Lambo, but a little behind on the build.
I have now completed Packs 19 to 21. I did have a problem fitting the windscreen at first. The roof was slightly distorted and the bottom pins would not seat correctly, After a bit of gentle re alignment, all is ok.
I have adjusted the rear pipe work of the engine as per instructions all ok there. Hope to post more pics soon

Regards
Jon

A friend of mine that has nearly completed his Lambo has just had the retro case delivered. I think I will look to buy a case with a wooden plinth for mine, then have a small metal plaque made...

Well a bit unlucky with my final Lambo Parts. Pack 23 the Left Door mirror housing missing and also the Right door housing missing in Pack 24. Throughout the build I don't think I had any missing parts.
Quick Call to customer services and the replacement parts on their way. Great Customer Service I have to say.
Attached a few more pics. I guess I will get back to my 2000GT. only half way through that build. I wont mention The Mustang, Senna MP4, DC3 kit LOL. I am interested in the E-Type as well, but not sure if I would find the time to build it LOL...
