The road wheel assembly…I have not glue the road wheel, just snap it together…for easy painting later.



Found instruction error…



Glue the simple suspension unit onto the chassis…it is workable.



Glue the full length suspension unit onto the chassis…



More progress on the road wheels…



Completed…

The final drive is in location



Drive sprocket wheel…SADLY The instruction is NOT showed clear on this. I glue the sprocket wheel with the alignment on the teeth ONLY. But I found they said the bolts are need alignment too on the last page (Page 13) of the instruction.



I break it and re-glue the sprocket with both alignment on the bolts and teeth…



It looks good to me…

Nice looking build so far. I am trying to decide which one to build first. The Trumpeter #1, Dragon #2 or the Amuzing #3-5. I have the Dragon one but think I should do them in order and do the Trumpeter one first. That sucks about the Sprocket wheel. Those instructions need some work it sounds. Looks like it worked out in the end though

Roy,

Some notes to look at. For the Trumpeter No. 1, the ventilation casting on the upper rear plate should be centered.

On the Dragon No.2 it seems the rear vertical turret plate is flat, matching the Hilary Doyle plans. However, photos look to have a slight fold in the center as in the Amusing Hobby No. 3-5 kit. Check photos and see what you think since one or the other must be off.

Regards,

Is there any photographic evidence for this, except for the mentioning in the Amusing Hobby instructions?
