Generally speaking this is a very fine kit, rather well engineered, well molded with some dimensional inaccuracies in the nose area, front fenders and front wheelwells, too high. Wheels and tires, as well are not perfect. Various material used as usual, resin, photoetched frames, white metal, turned parts and well printed decals


The Process

First of all: when cutting, drilling or milling resin ALWAYS wear protection mask and glasses, resin dust is toxic.

After having deeply studied all the instructions and looked at the parts, I started with the wheels. Made of aluminium, diameter and shape are not 100% correct: the diameter needs to be increased and the spokes are too tick.


I started milling the spokes both from outside and inside, refining the work with sandpaper.
