So do i LOL Thanks for looking in. The rear engine cover is removable, the nose cone looks like it is screwed down.

Here is today's update. Built up and fitted front hubs and discs. Doesn't look like much, but very fiddly Huh This completes stage 12, just need to connect brake pipes.

Thanks guys ThumpUp
Finally hooked up the front brake lines. They were a very tight fit where it meets the union under the calipers, so used wifey's hairdrier to warm the pipe up to expand it a little BigGrin
This finishes off the front brakes. I decided i didn't like the decals on the calipers, so left them off (wouldn't see them anyway with the wheels on).

So on to the engine ThumpUp
