Up on the roof

I am starting to get toward the end of this build, Looks like we are heading toward “Topping out” this particular kit

??????????????????????

But first the windscreen is glued into the frame

??????????????????????

Then this, and the front brightwork are glued onto the body, lot’s of swearing here, the CA just seemed to take ages to grab so everything had to be held into place for up to a minute till the glue set. The handles for the bonnet had to have locating pegs cut off, as they simply wouldn’t fit into the holes.

??????????????????????

Then attention switches to the roof

??????????????????????

with the rear screen glued into place

??????????????????????

then the strutwork

??????????????????????

clipping it into place was frustrating though, but I got it aligned in the end

??????????????????????

Then the front struts go on, again, the CA just wouldn’t set as quickly as I’d hope, with the lack of clear alignment points making the job even more fiddly.
