Oh wow I didn't know that kit came with the engine and transmission. And then all that interior detail in the fighting compartment- I love open-topped vehicles. Going to be cool watching you build this- thanks for sharing your progress with us.

Before you start,read the reviews over this kit!

I was lucky and before you assemble with glue,read the instructions from page 1-99!

I wired for the first time a radio,just the headphones are missing...

Great looking start sir. I have to admit, seeing your start has motivated me to look into purchasing this kit. Enjoy your build, and I'll be here to the end.
