To start with, the first impressions are great !
The slim box the kit arrived in was surprisingly small, compared to other kits i've had.The box art and the manual both present quite attractively and professional looking.
The manual is a little scant as far as text and building tips, but the illustrations are quite nice
Opening the labelled bags , you find some sexy anodized parts, cleanly moulded plastic parts. The fasteners surprised me with excellent fit with my hex drivers. A good sign of things to come
I sealed the perimeter of the decks, shock towers and front bumper reinforcement plate with c.a glue.
Once again, the finish is great, very accurate indeed. Further proof of this , was when I mounted the bulkheads....every screw lined up perfectly
I built the diff, spool and layshaft, mounting them to the bulkheads and once again, no hand fitting / finishing required.
The suspension went together well, with no binding whatsoever......
