Greetings,
I am at the same stage as you in this thread. Question for you. Are you able to compress the shock absorber assembly? I'm wondering if I've done something wrong but the springs seem a bit stiff. Maybe once the auto is fully assembled?

Yes they are stiff. But as long as they move then all is OK. I can only assume the reason for the high stiffness is due to the model being mainly metal hence will be quite heavy when finished

Stages 11-14 here now. Unsure whether to build this now or wait for a couple of more packs and build the engine in one go. 🤔

Stage 11 done. I decided not to put this wheel on yet as apparently they both have to come off again at some point.

Another great update here.

The 'wheel removal later' bit rings bells from my Mazda Cosmo build.
Two steps forward, one step back.
A fun and highly detailed kit though.

Looking forward to seeing more of this one.BigGrin

Stage 16. HT leads, distributor and water pump. I thought this stage was going to be a bit fiddly but it was relatively easy👍
