Stage 69. My model came with three damages & warped wooden base parts, two had been replaced, one is still on order, so I can't fully complete the base yet.

Happy New Year, fellas! Hope everyone had nice holidays!

Back to the drawing board.... Pack 22 has arrived (getting so close!).

Connected all the wiring, everything went in smoothly and stays firmly attached.

Assembled right grip and installer break lever assembly, used a drop of superglue to keep it firmly in place.

Steering is now complete.

Installed central processing unit and speaker. Black plastic speaker stays went missing somehow so I cut four 1.8" (45 mm) long pieces of 1/5" (5 mm) diameter brass tubing with rubber washers for support.

Stages 72, 73. Installed both side mirrors, kept protective film for now. Attached dashboard. Everything fits perfectly, as usual.

Forgot to take picture of the assembly though, will take it later.

Carefully aligned and attached right frame decal. Throttle cable assembly got touch up with silver and gunmetal paint for more realism. I was thinking about threading some wiring to simulate cable as I found some good online pictures but it proved too much of a hassle so left it as is, with just some painting. Still looks very nice.

Attached throttle cables to the steering assembly, and we are done! Next issue will be arriving by mid-January, will keep posting!

Pack 23. Stage 75. Attached the assembled air intakes with a touch of glue in proper spots. Seems a bit shaky but I'm sure it will hold string after installation.
