Here is the progress so far on my Italeri Autoblida AB40.
I experienced fit issues when mating the upper hull to the chassis which required considerable sanding to make it fit. I’m not sure whether it was a result of me deviating slightly from the instructions or whether it is a design fault, but there was no way the chassis was sliding into place with front and rear hull sections in place. The sidewalls of the upper hull have fixed placement for the suspension sectons so I just couldn’t see where I went wrong, but hopefully the modifications will amsk this error.
Primed with car rattle can primer (I usually use Simoniz, but this was not available and had to use a different brand (name eludes me right now) which does not spray as fine and has a more satin finish, but hopefully should not affect things too much.)
