More minor issues, for some reason the rear axle is over too far to one side. Curse, add plastic to it
to bring the one wheel out to match the other.

Slow going, but I'm getting there. The wheel location on the suspension isn't all that positive, hence the peg holding it up while the glue cures. I need to move the rear wheel on the other side as well.
Paint is Tamiya German grey, "Moca" rattle can & Dullcote for the interior. I've found pics of the 1:1 with and without window frames,so the next step after the suspension in to butcher/cut them, leaving only the front quarter windows.

It's still fighting me all the way. The X member needs more length, hence the strips of card on 2 ends.
And the running boards are located by air & sheer blind luck, so they got they treatment as well.
Front suspension is very, very fragile too. I should have braced it before the body went on.

Working on the convertible top, I hate the bulk & height of it. Toying with something a bit more graceful. Some more plumbing on the engine too.

Added all the lights, sunvisors, etc. I decided on a light weathering- the sort a staff car would get on an airfield perimeter track, rather than the
Russian Front. Nearly, nearly there........

The weathering is just right for that situation Chris.
