Hi Raymond
Welcome to the forum. I am sure you will enjoy your time here.
Looks like you have made a fine start on the RR. I've not seen this built before so interested to see how it goes.

I must admit the fit was ok but the same kit can vary depending on where it was stored kits can warp (stored in the warehouse next to the heater for instance)

Hi Raymond. Looks like you forgot the photos in your last post. Also you do not start a new thread for each part of the build, just carry on in this one.

Hi Raymond
The flimsy steering is a common problem with these car builds. I built an SS100 Jaguar and once I had decided how much of a turn I wanted on the steering I glued it all solid.

You can see how many pivot points there were and how loose fitting it all was.

lots of moving parts on there, these bits are always fragile

well, heres a few more bits of the rolls, dashboard was warped ,so knocked a new one up, cut the instrument housing off the old one and glued it to the new dash. the join at the top of the dash was not perfect hence the chrome rail,, made the glove box and the two switches , before everything was glued on covered the dash and glove box with walnut burr. that was a job and half on its own ! rear part of the body is now glued in place as is the bulkhead, more pics to follow when a bit more has been done !
